Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Braveness settled fourth along the fence, stayed to the inside upon straightening and took control 50m out to remain unbeaten in two starts, despite switching courses for this run. Gold Racer was posted without cover from a wide gate in midfield, rushed to fourth at the 450m, swung the final bend five wide and finished up willingly to overhaul Super Fresh in the final 10m for second. He'll be hard to beat from an ideal gate next time out. Super Fresh worked to lead at the 600m from an awkward gate, turned the final bend level for the lead and grudgingly gave way late. Tomodachi was prominent and three deep in the run early on, rolled forward to tackle the leader at the at the 450m, turned the final bend level for the front and only held his ground over the final 100m. Seasons Star was doing his best work late without threatening to figure in the placings. Vintage Hussler enjoyed the box-seat run, straightened five deep and whacked on one-paced over the final 100m. Glory Horsie settled behind midfield and on the rails, pushed into the clear three deep and made only a mild bid late. He had no excuses and will require further relief in the ratings.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (358)-SOUTHORN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000 Metres On arrival at the Start, it was noted that CARRY THE ZEAL had lost its right front plate.

This plate was refitted.

CARRY THE ZEAL was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

SEASONS STAR began only fairly.

From the outside barrier, BOLERO was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the 700 Metres, XI YING MEN proved difficult to settle when awkwardly placed close to the heels of BRAVENESS.

Near the 500 Metres, XI YING MEN got its head up when being checked away from the heels of BRAVENESS and in doing so shifted in, resulting in GLORY HORSIE being crowded for room.

XI YING MEN then continued to race close to the heels of BRAVENESS for some distance after this.

Rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, PRECISION KING got its head on the side, hung out and proved very difficult to ride.

Before being allowed to race again, PRECISION KING will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial around a bend.

Passing the 200 Metres, BRAVENESS raced tight inside SUPER FRESH.

When questioned regarding his riding of CARRY THE ZEAL, U Rispoli stated that as the race was over 1000 Metres, it was felt that CARRY THE ZEAL, which was resuming after having not raced since 1 July last year, would be beaten for early speed.

He said he was advised to shift CARRY THE ZEAL across behind runners, save ground rounding the Home Turn and to fully test it in the Straight.

He said in accordance with his instructions, he shifted CARRY THE ZEAL across behind runners and passing the 600 Metres was racing behind SEASONS STAR, a horse he felt would be a good chance in the race.

He said he continued to follow that horse approaching the 400 Metres and rounding the Home Turn immediately placed CARRY THE ZEAL under pressure when SEASONS STAR shifted out.

He said he continued to place CARRY THE ZEAL under pressure in the early part of the Straight and the horse responded satisfactorily to his riding.

He added near the 200 Metres he was obliged to shift CARRY THE ZEAL in away from the heels of XI YING MEN which shifted out.

He said after doing this, he continued to ride CARRY THE ZEAL along including using the whip on the horse, however, over the concluding stages he did not ride it out fully as he was improving towards the heels of TOMODACHI.

He added at this time GLORY HORSIE shifted out to his inside and he was therefore not able to shift to the inside of the heels of TOMODACHI to continue riding all the way to the finishing line.

U Rispoli was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, his riding of CARRY THE ZEAL over the final 200 Metres had come under notice.

He was reprimanded and advised that he must ensure he rides his mounts out in such a manner so as to leave no room for query.

A veterinary inspection of CARRY THE ZEAL after the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that TOMODACHI had lost its left hind plate.

BRAVENESS and GOLD RACER were sent for sampling.
