Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Circuit Star settled behind midfield and one off the fence, swung the final bend with three wider out and finished up nicely to take control 50m out for a second straight win over this Valley trip. He remains one to follow. Specked late, Flying Unicorn was niggled early on to hold his position one off the fence in second, cornered in four deep, poked his head in front 60m out and found one too good in the end. He's ready to win. Royal Knight settled fourth from the rear and along the rails, was briefly held-up five wide upon straightening, shifted into the clear with two wider out at the 200m and finished up willingly to snatch third in the final few metres. The Untouchablelad settled midfield and on the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and was pipped late for third. Good Luck Win when a good clip on the speed, cornered nearly two lengths on top and was grudgingly giving way over the final 100m. Happy Tumbler was prominently ridden along the fence in third or fourth, cornered in three deep with every chance and couldn't keep up the pressure over the final 150m. Step Faster was patiently ridden third from the rear and three deep from the widest gate, swung the final bend furthest out and couldn't go on with things soon after.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (377)-MUT WAH HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650 Metres JIMSON THE BEST was withdrawn on 5.2.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter HOLY MAC (Y T Cheng).

Before being allowed to race again, JIMSON THE BEST will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

ROYAL KNIGHT began very awkwardly.

MASTER GUNNER was slow to begin.

HOLY MAC shifted in at the start and bumped GREAT RENOWN.

Then passing the 1600 Metres, HOLY MAC, which was being steadied to obtain a position with cover, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GREAT RENOWN.

Rounding the Home Turn, STEP FASTER was steadied away from the heels of GREAT RENOWN which was taken out by CIRCUIT STAR.

At the entrance to the Straight, HOLY MAC was shifted to the inside of ROYAL KNIGHT to obtain clear running.

ROYAL KNIGHT had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Passing the 200 Metres, HAPPY TUMBLER and FLYING UNICORN bumped.

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

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that INTELLECTUALSTRIDE was lame in its right hind leg.

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

When questioned, Y T Cheng stated that he had been instructed to obtain a position with cover in about midfield if possible.

He said in the early stages there were a number of runners positioned to his inside and for this reason he steadied HOLY MAC shortly after the start to shift across behind those runners.

He said after being momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of GREAT RENOWN for a short distance after the 1600 Metres, he commenced to shift HOLY MAC across to a position closer to the rail, however, passing the winning post on the first occasion he was left racing in a three wide position outside ROYAL KNIGHT.

He said rather than continue to race wide, he elected to steady his mount after the winning post on the first occasion and obtain a position behind ROYAL KNIGHT on the rail.

He said this resulted in HOLY MAC racing further back than had been hoped.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of STEP FASTER, T Clark stated that his mount travelled well until prior to the 500 Metres at which time the horse came off the bridle.

He said despite being ridden along his mount did not pick up as he expected and although STEP FASTER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GREAT RENOWN rounding the Home Turn, the horse was under heavy pressure at this time.

He said despite being ridden out in the Straight STEP FASTER did not respond to his riding and, in his opinion, was disappointing.

He added that on return to the Parade Ring STEP FASTER became unbalanced in its action on a number of occasions.

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

The performance of STEP FASTER was considered unacceptable.

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

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

CIRCUIT STAR and FLYING UNICORN were sent for sampling.
