Recap by phillip woo

Firming short-priced favourite Solar Great has improved immensely to win both outings for new trainer David Hall. He settled midfield and two-to-three deep in the run, peeled into the clear with one wider out, swept to the front 220m out and kept on nicely under minimal urging for the victory. Finn Maccool recovered off a sluggish break to settle behind midfield and on the rails, cornered in four deep and finished off well to take control of second at the 100m. Owners' Pride travelled in fifth and one off the fence, peeled into the clear with two wider out upon straightening and was grinding away to snatch third in the final few metres. Glenealy Star dictated the running with Born To Win underneath him, cornered a half-length on top and gave way late. He'll be the one to keep safe with a drop into Class Four at Happy Valley. Born To Win kept plugging away in an improved second-up performance. Ho In One bided his time third from the rear, cornered in with two wider out and made some ground. He's improving with racing. Helene Fun Star and Bomber Jet never looked likely.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (187) - CHEVALIER CONSTRUCTION HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters VICTORIUS was withdrawn on 23.11.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (fever).

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

After the 200 Metres, FAY DEEP was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GLENEALY STAR which got its head on the side and shifted out under pressure.

Passing the 50 Metres, HELENE FUN STAR became unbalanced after being bumped by HO IN ONE which shifted out slightly.

When questioned, M Chadwick stated that he had been asked to ride HELENE FUN STAR in about a midfield position with cover if possible as the horse had not finished off its most recent race when ridden along in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

He said that making the first turn he was left racing in a three wide position outside of HO IN ONE and for this reason he steadied HELENE FUN STAR further in order to obtain cover behind that horse.

He said this resulted in HELENE FUN STAR racing slightly further back than had been anticipated.

Trainer A S Cruz confirmed that he was disappointed with the manner in which HELENE FUN STAR had finished off its most recent race after having to be ridden along to obtain a forward position.

He said from barrier 10, he did not want the same scenario to unfold and for this reason he asked Jockey Chadwick to ride HELENE FUN STAR in about a midfield position with cover in the hope that it would be able to close off its race more strongly than it did at its most recent start.

A veterinary inspection of BOMBER JET after the race did not show any significant findings.

SOLAR GREAT and FINN MACCOOL were sent for sampling.
