Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Loving Star pinched ground to settle midfield and on the rails after copping a check following a sluggish break, stayed to the inside one off the fence upon straightening, swept to the lead passing the 200m and kept on gamely for a deserving win with a move to side winkers. Yue Lu Treasure settled behind midfield and two deep, pushed into the clear with three deeper out at the 400m, assumed second 50m out from Athenium at the 50m and just held off the furious rush of Real Generous. Real Generous was taken back to last nearly 15 lengths off the leader at one point, cornered in widest out and let down powerfully to finish up best of all with money coming on late. It was a huge effort in defeat and he appears to have more wins in him. Athenium settled fourth along the fence, straightened three deep, moved to second at the 200m and was swamped 50m out. Always Something made his run worse than midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend six wide and made steady ground. Burgundy Mac was hitting the line with a bit of purpose. Iron Eagle switched out sharply with two wider out at the 300m and got going when the race was all over. Perfect Cheers made his run second from the rear and two deep, turned the final bend with one wider out and made no impression. He's more effective at Happy Valley. Won Ton King Prawn was eased out of things in the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (506) - MIRS BAY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600 Meters After being loaded, PERFECT CHEERS became fractious and reared on a number of occasions.

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

ATHENIUM began awkwardly.

LOVING STAR was slow to begin and then shortly after the start was steadied when crowded for room between SECRETARY OF STATE and RIGHT TIMING which shifted out after being bumped by ALWAYS SOMETHING.

From wide barriers, REAL GENEROUS, NORTH HILL and IRON EAGLE were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

When being steadied in the early stages, PERFECT CHEERS got its head up on a number of occasions and proved difficult to settle.

Near the 1500 Metres, LOVING STAR was awkwardly placed outside the heels of ALWAYS SOMETHING which shifted out.

Over the final 100 Metres, LOVING STAR shifted out under pressure whilst REAL GENEROUS shifted in under pressure.

Over the concluding stages, IRON EAGLE raced in restricted room between BURGUNDY MAC and ALWAYS SOMETHING which shifted out away from the heels of ATHENIUM.

When questioned, B Prebble stated that travelling along the Back Straight WON TON KING PRAWN lay out and was reluctant to proceed over to race near the rail.

He said however that once FLYING TOGETHER crossed WON TON KING PRAWN approaching the 800 Metres, WON TON KING PRAWN commenced to travel more generously.

He said WON TON KING PRAWN made the Home Turn satisfactorily, however, when placed under pressure in the early part of the Straight commenced to hang out badly.

He said WON TON KING PRAWN continued to hang out in the Straight when placed under pressure and shifted out a number of horses.

He added because of the manner in which WON TON KING PRAWN was hanging and as it was a beaten horse, he did not continue to ride that horse out over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of WON TON KING PRAWN after the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of WON TON KING PRAWN, a last start winner, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, WON TON KING PRAWN will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial around a bend and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of RIGHT TIMING, D Whyte stated that his mount travelled well in front of midfield.

He said rounding the Home Turn he shifted RIGHT TIMING to the outside of FLUKE to improve its position, however, RIGHT TIMING immediately came under pressure.

He said he placed RIGHT TIMING under pressure in the Straight, however, despite being ridden along, the horse did not respond to his riding and weakened badly over the final 200 Metres.

He added after the race he advised Mr J Size, the trainer of RIGHT TIMING, that the horse would benefit from a let-up as, in his opinion, it raced flat today.

A veterinary inspection of RIGHT TIMING after the race did not show any significant findings.

LOVING STAR and YUE LU TREASURE were sent for sampling.
