Recap by phillip woo

Winning Apex made his run in fourth or fifth and one off the rails from a perfect gate, cornered in five deep, worked to the lead 150m out and kept on gamely for the win. Punted late, Flying Unicorn switched outside early leader Snitzel Kid and moved to the front rounding the first bend, continued to set a lackluster pace while coming to the final bend a length on top and grudgingly gave way late. Galaxy Prancer bided his time third from the rear and along the rails, came one-to-two off upon straightening and finished up nicely to take third close to home. Circuit Star was posted three deep near the speed, before finding a position one off in second at the 1,000m, cornered in four deep and kept on one-paced over the final 100m. Well-punted late, Great Charm was patiently ridden at the rear and one off the rails, shifted into the clear with three wider out at the 200m and was getting going late to make it a bob of heads for fourth in his initial run at the Valley. He wasn't suited by the pace and remains one to follow. Divine Diya made his run fourth from the rear and one off the rails, pushed into the clear with two wider out upon straightening and made some progress late without menacing in his first attempt over the Valley course.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (561)-WARWICK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

SPIRIT SOARING lost ground at the start when crowded for room between WINNING APEX which shifted out and SNITZEL KID which was taken in by HECO RIDER.

FLYING UNICORN began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, GREAT CHARM, AMAZINGLY and ALL BOUNTIFUL were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

GALAXY PRANCER was also taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, SPIRIT SOARING raced tight inside WINNING APEX.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, GALAXY PRANCER was steadied away from the heels of DIVINE DIYA which shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of HECO RIDER.

In the early part of the Straight, HECO RIDER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of WINNING APEX after getting its head on the side and laying in.

When questioned regarding the performance of ONE OF A KIND, D Whyte stated that he attempted to position the horse in about midfield with cover as instructed by the horse's trainer, Mr C H Yip.

He said due to the circumstances of the race ONE OF A KIND was left racing without cover after the 1200 Metres when he was unable to shift in behind runners in the early stages.

He said ONE OF A KIND continued to race wide and without cover and near the 1000 Metres became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by DIVINE DIYA.

He said he commenced to ride ONE OF A KIND along prior to the 500 Metres to prevent DIVINE DIYA from shifting out, however, ONE OF A KIND was already off the bridle and was under heavy pressure.

He said he continued to ride ONE OF A KIND along in an attempt to have it improve its position, however, ONE OF A KIND did not respond to his riding rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight.

He added he continued to push ONE OF A KIND along in the Straight, however, the horse was well beaten at this time.

He said whilst ONE OF A KIND was disappointing, he felt that the fact that the horse had to travel wide and without cover for the majority of the race, in his opinion, accounted somewhat for the horse's performance.

Mr Yip confirmed that he had asked Jockey Whyte to position ONE OF A KIND in midfield if possible with cover, however, he was concerned that there were a number of horses that normally occupied this position, however, he had hoped that the horse would be able to obtain cover.

He said ONE OF A KIND had pleased him since its last start success and he expected the horse to perform well albeit he held concerns that the horse may be left racing wide from barrier 9.

He added even given the fact that ONE OF A KIND was wide throughout the race, nonetheless, in his opinion, the horse was disappointing.

A veterinary inspection of ONE OF A KIND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of ONE OF A KIND, a favourite for tonight's race, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, ONE OF A KIND 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 SNITZEL KID immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of ALL BOUNTIFUL immediately following the race revealed the horse to be lame in the left front leg.

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

ONE OF A KIND, WINNING APEX and FLYING UNICORN were sent for sampling.
