Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late, Tipperary Davor was able to settle fifth and one or two off the fence in the run from gate 14, cornered in five deep, went to the front 100m out and held off the late surge of Mr Marfach for the win with a step up in distance and return to the dirt. Mr Marfach made his run fourth from the rear and three deep, swung the final bend with three wider out and finished up willingly to make it close at the finish as the second favourite. Well-punted late, Medic Champion settled on the back of the speed along the fence in third or fourth, came one off soon after straightening and stayed on dourly to snatch third in the final few metres with a move to the dirt. Hero's Win settled worse than midfield and one off the rails, turned the final bend with two wider out and was full of run late to edge a tiring Handsome Batchelor for fourth with a step up in distance. Punted late to start favourite, Handsome Batchelor rolled forward from a wide gate to eventually settle outside the moderate pace issued by Rainbow Seeker, assumed the lead 250m out and grudgingly gave way over the last 100m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (472)-SHUN TIN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

Just as the start was effected, HEROS WIN put its head down, resulting in its rider, R Fourie, reaching out with his right arm and grasping the stall partition to maintain balance.

Then when the start was effected, HEROS WIN began awkwardly and lost ground KING OF WINE, which was leaning on the outside of its stall, was slow to begin.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, SPARKLING raced tight inside DANESOUTH which itself raced tight inside TIPPERARY DAVOR which got its head on the side and shifted in.

A short distance later, SPARKLING was checked when crowded for room inside DANESOUTH which was taken in by TIPPERARY DAVOR which at this time was taken in by HANDSOME BATCHELOR (C Y Ho) which, when being steadied to obtain a position behind FANTASTISCH, shifted in.

C Y Ho was severely reprimanded and advised that whilst there were some circumstances to this incident, nonetheless he must ensure that he leaves sufficient racing room for runners to his inside in future.

Near the 1200 Metres, BEST NOODLE was left racing wide and without cover and was consequently allowed to stride into a more forward position.

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

Passing the 300 Metres, DANESOUTH was steadied and shifted to the outside of MR MARFACH when disappointed for running between that horse and BEST NOODLE which shifted out when giving ground.

A veterinary inspection of FANTASTISCH immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HANDSOME BATCHELOR, TIPPERARY DAVOR and MR MARFACH were sent for sampling.
