Recap by phillip woo

Notus was handy but three deep in the run in fifth without cover, worked to a narrow lead from Mighty K four deep at the 300m and out-dueled that one in a thriller to just come out on top for a second win from his past four starts. Firming favourite Mighty K took the sit one off in third at the 900m after leading early on from a wide gate, briefly hit the front at the 350m, was just headed soon after by Notus and went down fighting in a thriller. Sharema Feeling bided his time at the rear, pushed widest out upon straightening and was rolling late to outgun Life Of Beauty for third. Life Of Beauty was posted three deep with cover behind midfield, swung the final bend with two wider out and stayed on well to just miss a placing. O'Halo travelled ahead of midfield and on the rails, cornered in four deep and stayed on one-paced. Regal Army made his run three deep in midfield, rounded the final bend five wide and only held his ground with the step up in distance. Enjoy The Fun made his run third from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend five wide, was on the heels of a one-paced Regal Army at the 200m, pushed out at the 150m and made only a mild bid thereafter. Horseshoe Fortune was always in tight quarters from the 300m onwards and never tested. Sunshine Kid was never tested behind a tiring Viva Fighter and Dynamic Cross, with Lucky Tycoon keeping him well bottled up on the outside. He can be forgiven for the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (594) - BMW PERFORMANCE RACE (HANDICAP) - Class 4 - 1400 Meters BRILLIANT WORLD was withdrawn on 5.5.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (substantial amount of mucopus in trachea on scoping after track work) and was replaced by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 LUCKY TYCOON (M Chadwick).

Before being allowed to race again, BRILLIANT WORLD will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SUNSHINE BOY was slow to begin.

HAPPY WISDOM began awkwardly.

ENJOY THE FUN was buffeted for some distance after the start when crowded for room between REGAL ARMY and DYNAMIC CROSS, both of which shifted ground.

In this incident, REGAL ARMY became unbalanced.

After the 1100 Metres, REGAL ARMY proved difficult to settle when being steadied away from the heels of NOTUS.

Passing the 1000 Metres, SHAREMA FEELING shifted in away from the heels of HAPPY WISDOM.

Approaching the 800 Metres, NOTUS was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 700 Metres, OHALO was steadied away from the heels of MIGHTY K.

Rounding the Home Turn, MIGHTY K shifted out and became unbalanced after making contact with NOTUS.

ENJOY THE FUN was unable to obtain clear running for some distance approaching and passing the 200 Metres.

Over the final 200 Metres, SUNSHINE BOY was not able to obtain clear running and because of this was not properly tested.

After the 200 Metres, HORSESHOE FORTUNE had difficulty obtaining clear running.

Close to the finishing line, SUNSHINE BOY was steadied away from the heels of HORSESHOE FORTUNE which shifted in away from the heels of REGAL ARMY when that horse was steadied to avoid the heels of LIFE OF BEAUTY (A Suborics) which shifted in under pressure.

A Suborics was severely reprimanded and advised that he has an obligation to stop riding and straighten his mounts in similar circumstances.

The performance of HAPPY WISDOM, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, HAPPY WISDOM will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned regarding the improved performance of NOTUS, Trainer A Lee stated that it is becoming apparent to him that NOTUS appreciates not having to race in amongst other runners, particularly when making its finishing run.

He said in todays race and also when successful on 29 January 2012, the horse did not have a runner positioned to its outside and NOTUS responded well when placed under pressure.

He said in some of its work NOTUS had been reluctant to stretch out when working inside other horses and, in his opinion, the horses best work had been when it had been positioned outside horses.

He said for this reason, wherever possible and where circumstances permit, he will attempt to have NOTUS ridden in a similar manner.

A veterinary inspection of REGAL ARMY after the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had lost its right front plate.

A veterinary inspection of HORSESHOE FORTUNE after the race did not show any significant findings.

NOTUS and MIGHTY K were sent for sampling.
