Recap by phillip woo

Fionn's Treasure led early before handing up to Po Ching King at the 800m, reclaimed the lead at the 250m, was a length clear at the 150m and just held off the late surge of Rumba King, who pressed forward after a sluggish break to settle fourth along the fence at the 800m, shifted into the clear five at the 300m and ran on willingly to make it a thriller on the line. Firming favourite, Sea Diamond travelled third and one off the fence, cornered in three deep and stayed on OK without menacing. He's still learning. Zezao was caught three deep behind midfield, swung the final bend widest out and made some ground. Slick Bullet made his run at or second from the rear along the inside from a wide gate, peeled three wide upon straightening, ducked to the fence at the 300m, switched off the heels of a tiring Joyful Luck soon after and finished up nicely. Finn Maccool switched inside for a clear run at the 250m and finished up well. Po Ching King was stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (561) - FAMILY HARMONY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters THE PEAK was withdrawn on 20.4.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (substantial amount of mucopus in trachea on scoping after track work) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter RUMBA KING (W C Marwing).

Before being allowed to race again, THE PEAK will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

M L Yeung (NIGHTLIGN) was fined $2,000 for initially presenting himself to weigh out without a girth and a surcingle.

After being loaded, SEA DIAMOND became fractious.

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

SEA DIAMOND and FIONNS TREASURE bumped at the start.

From wide barriers, SLICK BULLET and BO BO EXPRESS were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 1000 Metres, SEA DIAMOND got its head up on a number of occasions when proving difficult to settle.

In the early and middle stages, BO BO EXPRESS raced greenly.

Near the 700 Metres, FIONNS TREASURE was momentarily crowded for room inside PO CHING KING which shifted in marginally.

PO CHING KING was then shifted out to relieve the tightening to FIONNS TREASURE.

When FIONNS TREASURE was momentarily crowded for room near the 700 Metres, RUMBA KING, which was following, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

Rounding the Home Turn, SEA DIAMOND got its head on the side and shifted out.

At the 400 Metres, SLICK BULLET was shifted to the inside of JOYFUL LUCK to improve its position.

A short distance later, SLICK BULLET was then shifted out when JOYFUL LUCK shifted in under pressure.

When questioned, M Chadwick (PO CHING KING) stated that at the 700 Metres he attempted to cross FIONNS TREASURE, however, he realized that he was not sufficiently clear of that horse and after crowding the room of FIONNS TREASURE, he then shifted out to relieve the tightening.

He said after this he attempted to improve his position so as to adequately clear FIONNS TREASURE and shift across to race on the rail, however, FIONNS TREASURE continued to maintain its position inside his heels and as he did not want to aggressively ride PO CHING KING forward at this time, he elected to remain racing one horse off the fence rather than continuing to attempt to cross FIONNS TREASURE.

SEA DIAMOND, FIONNS TREASURE and RUMBA KING were sent for sampling.
