Recap by phillip woo

Charles The Great was rated fourth from the rear and two deep, was back to last at the 500m, still trailed the field with two wider out at the 200m and let down brilliantly to collar the firming favourite Mi Savvy in the final bound for the win off a big weight. Mi Savvy settled in the box-seat, stayed to the inside upon straightening, hit the lead 200m out and kept on a clear second as the firming favourite with a rise in grade. Red Lucky Star made his run at the rear and two deep, improved his position out wide approaching the final bend, cornered deepest out and finished well to edge out Kick Serve for third. Kick Serve travelled second from the rear and two deep, improved his position into midfield entering the straight, cornered in with one wider out and was pipped late for third. Loads Of Joy sat outside the leader Jade Christy, assumed a narrow lead at the 250m, was headed at the 200m and was swamped in the final 100m. Bullish King travelled a prominent fourth and one off the rails, rounded five wide and kept on one-paced over the final 100m. Glory Horsie was a handy fifth along the fence, hit the straight three deep and failed to find extra over the final 150m with first-time blinkers. Debutant Windicator Star was rushed to occupy a spot ahead of midfield and on the rails after breaking awkwardly, rounded the final bend with three wider out and was running on empty over the final 100m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (478) - CHENNAI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters From wide barriers, MASTER RIO and RED LUCKY STAR were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1100 Metres, GLORY HORSIE and JADE CHRISTY momentarily raced in restricted room between MI SAVVY and LOADS OF JOY which shifted in.

Near the 900 Metres, CHARLES THE GREAT got its head up and raced ungenerously.

CHARLES THE GREAT then continued to over-race and near the 700 Metres shifted in abruptly when being checked away from the heels of CHATER POWER.

After the 800 Metres, KICK SERVE was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 200 Metres, GLORY HORSIE was shifted out away from the heels of JADE CHRISTY which was commencing to give ground.

After the 100 Metres, CENTURY SUPER STAR shifted in and bumped GLORY HORSIE.

When questioned regarding the performance of WINDICATOR STAR, B Prebble stated that after being loaded his mount became very fractious and reared.

He said WINDICATOR STAR then began awkwardly and a short distance after the start was checked when crowded for room between CHARLES THE GREAT which shifted in after being bumped by MASTER RIO and BULLISH KING which shifted out after being bumped on the hindquarters by WINDICATOR STAR.

He said after this he shifted WINDICATOR STAR across behind runners and was able to make up ground in the run to the first turn which resulted in it obtaining a favourable position.

He said WINDICATOR STAR travelled strongly in the middle stages and near the 500 Metres he felt that his mount was going well enough to figure in the finish.

He added however that at the entrance to the Straight WINDICATOR STAR immediately came under pressure and despite being ridden along did not finish off its race.

He said, in his opinion, the manner in which WINDICATOR STAR weakened in the Straight was disappointing.

The barrier manners of WINDICATOR STAR were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, WINDICATOR STAR will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of JADE CHRISTY, Apprentice T H So stated that he had to make considerable use of the horse in the early stage to obtain a forward position as instructed including having to ride it with the whip due to it being slow to begin.

He said after the 1000 Metres he was obliged to continue riding JADE CHRISTY along in order to cross MI SAVVY to his inside which he was not able to do until after the 800 Metres.

He said after this JADE CHRISTY travelled fairly until the 400 Metres at which point the horse came under pressure and then weakened out of the race in the Straight.

He did say that he had ridden JADE CHRISTY in a piece of track work in the lead up to tonights race and, in his opinion, that work was good.

He said that, in his opinion, the disappointing performance of JADE CHRISTY could be attributed to the amount of use that had to be made of the horse in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

A veterinary inspection of WINDICATOR STAR and JADE CHRISTY after the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of GLORY HORSIE after the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had lost its left front plate.

CHARLES THE GREAT and MI SAVVY were sent for sampling.
