Recap by phillip woo

Victor Delight was well-rated in fourth and one off the fence, worked to a narrow lead from Good Luck Win four deep at the 200m and repelled a late challenge from Classic Jewellery for the win. He can still be followed off a light weight in the next grade. Classic Jewellery settled behind midfield and one off the fence, started to edge forward at the 500m, rounded the final bend with three wider out and was closing the margin over the final 150m to make it close at the finish. Market mover, Good Luck Win was allowed to get-a-way with an uncontested lead passing the winner's post for the first time, straightened near three lengths on top and kept on gamely for third. Favourite Forgive And Forget bided his time second from the rear, swung the final bend widest out and was hitting the line with purpose for a non-threatening fourth. Always Something settled third from the rear and one off the fence, switched into the clear with two wider out and made some ground late without menacing. Soldier eventually settled second in the run and one off the fence, straightened three deep and was yielding ground over the last 200m. He needs a return to Class Four to show his best. Hollywood Kiss was ridden at the rear and only kept on late passed beaten gallopers.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (117) - HIGH ISLAND HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650 Meters AGIAAL was withdrawn on 22.10.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (left hind limb swelling).

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

Near the 1300 Metres, FLYING IN and FORGIVE AND FORGET were taken wider by ALWAYS SOMETHING which shifted out after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of CLASSIC JEWELLERY when proving difficult to settle.

Near the 1000 Metres, HOLLYWOOD KISS was steadied away from the heels of ALWAYS SOMETHING which shifted in when racing close to the heels of CLASSIC JEWELLERY.

Near the 400 Metres, FORGIVE AND FORGET was hampered and taken wider after being disappointed for running between FLYING IN and ALWAYS SOMETHING which shifted out.

Near the 150 Metres, M Chadwick (CIRCUIT STAR) momentarily dropped his right rein.

For the major part of the race, FLYING IN travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of COSTA DEL SOL, Apprentice K C Ng stated that the horse, which was racing at Happy Valley for the first time tonight, after obtaining the position behind the leader, GOOD LUCK WIN, then over-raced and proved difficult to settle.

He said because of the manner in which COSTA DEL SOL travelled throughout the race, the horse was then not able to close off its race.

A veterinary inspection of COSTA DEL SOL after the race did not show any significant findings.

FORGIVE AND FORGET, VICTOR DELIGHT and CLASSIC JEWELLERY were sent for sampling.
