Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Berlinski was switched off at the rear from a wide gate, was still at the tail while straightening widest out and finished up willingly to nail Electronic Fortune, who had the gun run behind the two leaders. Safari Magic rolled forward without cover from a wide gate to eventually sit second outside the leader Infinite Courage and kept on gamely for a placing. He'll be winning chance from a good gate next time out. Specked late, Mutual Delight made his run fourth from the rear and along the inside, cornered in four deep, shifted further out into the clear at the 250m and finished up well. Heart Wood settled around midfield and three deep with cover, cornered in five wide and kept on well in his first run back this season. Super Horse made some ground late without menacing. Champion Ranger was eased down over the final 250m. Principal was a late scratching at the gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (391)-CRYSTAL HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Metres

After being loaded, PRINCIPAL became fractious and momentarily sat down.

PRINCIPAL was removed from the stalls and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

After being reloaded, PRINCIPAL again became fractious, reared and got its right front leg into the adjoining stall.

PRINCIPAL was again removed from the stalls and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said the horse had sustained wounds to the right shoulder and as such was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of PRINCIPAL.

Before being allowed to race again, PRINCIPAL will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Both MUTUAL DELIGHT and SUPER HORSE proved difficult to load.

Before being allowed to race again, MUTUAL DELIGHT and SUPER HORSE will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

SUPER HORSE began awkwardly.

MUTUAL DELIGHT began awkwardly and shortly after the start was bumped by CHAMPION RANGER which shifted in.

From wide barriers, BERLINSKI and FLORAL MAN were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

At the 400 Metres, BET ON ME was struck over the nose by the whip of Z Purton (CHAMPION RANGER).

Near the 25 Metres, SAFARI MAGIC and ELECTRONIC FORTUNE bumped.

Then close to the finishing line, SAFARI MAGIC was again bumped by ELECTRONIC FORTUNE which got its head on the side and shifted in.

When questioned regarding the riding tactics for BET ON ME, Trainer P F Yiu stated that the horse was last successful when ridden in about a midfield position.

He said he had viewed the previous two races and was of the opinion that horses which were coming from off the pace were advantaged.

He said therefore he had asked C K Tong to ride BET ON ME in about a midfield position if possible.

A veterinary inspection of CHAMPION RANGER after the race revealed that it was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being permitted to race again, CHAMPION RANGER will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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

BERLINSKI and ELECTRONIC FORTUNE were sent for sampling.
