Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Vintage Hussler went straight to the front from gate seven, cornered in nearly two lengths on top and kept finding to score a nice win with a return to his preferred minimum trip at this course. Flashing Guy was posted three deep around midfield, moved to third without cover at the 600m, straightened five wide and stayed on reasonably well to just shade the late-plunged Hannibal Barca and D Day Super for second. Hannibal Barca assumed the sit in fourth along the fence after jumping well, came one off upon straightening and kept on nicely to just take third ahead of D Day Super, who travelled with cover three deep behind Flashing Guy, swung the final bend with two wider out and made a steady bid late to unfortunately miss a place spot. Secret Of Winning settled behind midfield and one off the fence after breaking in the air at the start, turned the final corner with three wider out and made some progress late without menacing. King On Earth settled fifth and one off the fence, cornered four deep and was whacking away late without ever looking a threat. Highland Dragon settled along midfield and on the rails, straightened three deep and kept on one-paced, despite a move to Happy Valley. He's had too many chances and will remain in the bin for the time being.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (195) - HAKODATE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Meters SUPREME TAIJI was withdrawn on 27.11.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter FLASHING GUY (A Suborics).

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

As the start was effected, SECRET OF WINNING lifted its front feet off the ground and bounded in the air, resulting in SECRET OF WINNING losing ground.

JACK'S GEM was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, TRUE COURAGE, HIGHEST ACCLAIM and FORTUNE TOGETHER were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

At the 800 Metres, FORTUNE TOGETHER proved difficult to settle and was shifted away from the heels of JACK'S GEM.

After this, FORTUNE TOGETHER continued to over-race.

After the 700 Metres, D DAY SUPER was awkwardly placed inside the heels of FLASHING GUY which throughout the race travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of FORTUNE TOGETHER after the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

VINTAGE HUSSLER and FLASHING GUY were sent for sampling.
