Recap by phillip woo

Intellectualstride bided his time third from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend with one wider out and let down nicely to gun down favourite Follow The Wind in the final few metres for an overdue win at his 18th start with a step up in trip. He remains one to follow next season. Follow The Wind enjoyed the box-seat run, swept to the lead four deep at the 250m and found one better on the evening. He continues to knock on the door and will certainly be winning in due time. Home With Glory was handily ridden in midfield and on the rails, straightened two deep and kept on well to inject value into the exotics. He can pop at any time off his current mark. Go Lucky Go bided his time second from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend widest out and finished off well to fill the frame in fourth. Hei Hei Posh made his run behind midfield and on the rails fourth from the rear, cornered in six deep and made a steady bid late without threatening. Always Well travelled a handy fifth and one off the fence, straightened four deep and kept on one-paced. Ho Wongchoy was posted without cover in midfield, rushed forward to lead from Win A Dozen at the 900m and was stopping passing the 200m. Dragon Pins was struggling 300m out in a disappointing performance as a firming second choice.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (735) - YUE WAN HANDICAP - Class 4 (Special Conditions) - 1650 Meters SUPREME TAIJI was withdrawn on 3.7.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter VICTORY IDE SAY (M Chadwick).

Before being allowed to race again, SUPREME TAIJI will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After arriving at the barriers, M Chadwick, the rider of VICTORY IDE SAY, expressed concern over the horses action.

VICTORY IDE SAY was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion the horse was lame in its right front leg and as such was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, VICTORY IDE SAY was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, VICTORY IDE SAY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

HOME WITH GLORY and HEI HEI POSH were slow to begin.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, HEI HEI POSH was inconvenienced when momentarily crowded for room inside HOME WITH GLORY which improved into tight running to the inside of DRAGON PINS which itself was racing tight inside HO WONGCHOY.

After passing the winning post on the first occasion, HO WONGCHOY was left racing wide and without cover and passing the 1100 Metres was allowed to stride into the lead.

Near the 200 Metres, HEI HEI POSH was shifted to the inside of CHARMGOLD to obtain clear running.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of DRAGON PINS, Z Purton stated that his mount travelled satisfactorily in the early and middle stages in about a midfield position.

He said whilst he had not ridden DRAGON PINS in its previous races, he formed the view from looking at those races that the horse is somewhat one-paced and for this reason he elected to commence improving his position after the 600 Metres rather than be left flat-footed.

He said that he had to ride DRAGON PINS vigorously at this time in an endeavour to have the horse improve its position, however, DRAGON PINS quickly came under pressure and despite being ridden out did not respond to his riding and was disappointing in the manner in which it weakened out of the race in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of HO WONGCHOY and DRAGON PINS after the race did not show any significant findings.

INTELLECTUALSTRIDE and FOLLOW THE WIND were sent for sampling.
