Recap by phillip woo

Money was spot on for Victor Delight, who settled midfield and one off the fence, rounded the final bend six deep and finished up nicely to get up in deep stretch for back-to-back wins with a return to Class Two. He could head higher and will get a further trip as well. Same World went forward to sit outside the leader Enabling in the run, assumed the lead three deep at the 250m and found one better with a return to Happy Valley and drop in grade. It was a nice run in defeat. Beauty Touch bided his time third from the rear and along the rails, pushed into the clear five wide upon straightening and finished up nicely to grab third in the last 50m. Finezza made his run second from the rear and one off the fence, took off at the 400m while swinging the final corner widest out and ran on reasonably well to get up a distant fourth. Mr Bond saved ground in midfield, cornered in two deep and made a mild bid late without menacing. Fun Rider made his run at the rear after botching the start, turned the final bend with three wider out and was making some progress late without menacing. Withinymyheart travelled effectively one-out, one-back in the run, cornered in four deep and came up one-paced over the last 150m with a step up in distance.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (221) - ASIA HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1800 Meters FUN RIDER was slow to begin.

Near the 1600 Metres, GENKI TWINS and WITHINMYHEART raced tight inside SATIRICAL BOY which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of ENABLING.

Near the 100 Metres, ENABLING shifted out and bumped MR BOND.

Throughout the race, SATIRICAL BOY travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of SATIRICAL BOY after the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of SATIRICAL BOY, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

T Queally (MR BOND) was warned against the practice of raising his whip arm above shoulder height.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of ENABLING, D Whyte stated that the horse travelled comfortably in the lead without any pressure having to be applied to the horse.

He said having in mind the run that ENABLING had enjoyed throughout the race, he expected the horse to respond strongly to his riding when placed under pressure rounding the Home Turn.

He said however that ENABLING did not show any turn of foot and immediately came under pressure and SAME WORLD was able to quickly improve its position around ENABLING at the entrance to the Straight.

He added that when placed under pressure in the Straight, ENABLING shifted ground on a number of occasions and, in his opinion, was very disappointing.

He said he was not able to offer any explanation for the horses poor run.

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

A veterinary inspection of PERCY JACKSON after the race did not show any significant findings.

VICTOR DELIGHT and SAME WORLD were sent for sampling.
