Recap by phillip woo

Emperor Claudius set a genuine pace on the firm ground, cornered two lengths on top and was stopping 100m out to just hold on for the victory in track record time on speed favouring oval. Plunged late to jump favourite, Cool Bean was prominently ridden in fourth near the rails, cornered three-to-four deep and was closing the gap late with every stride. Ho Ho Life travelled around midfield and one off the rails, moved to fifth at the 600m, straightened five deep and finished up nicely to come out a clear third. Ride With The Wind settled midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out and came up one-paced over the final 100m after ranging up a place chance at the 200m. Fortune Bravo enjoyed the run of the race in the box-seat, came one off upon straightening and was giving ground passing the 200m. Distill settled third from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend with one deeper out and made some ground without menacing. Wayfoong Express settled second from the rear and near the inside after going back from gate 12, swung the final bend widest out and only kept on passed beaten rivals. Forgive And Forget swung the final bend five deep and only plodded on under pressure.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (708)-TAI TAM COUNTRY TRAIL HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Metres

NOBLE BOY was withdrawn on 17.6.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left hind) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter EMPEROR CLAUDIUS.

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

After being bumped by RIDE WITH THE WIDE at the start, COOL BEAN shifted out, resulting in HO HO LIFE being taken out onto FORGIVE AND FORGET which was steadied when crowded for room inside SUPER STRIKE.

Passing the 600 Metres, HO HO LIFE shifted in momentarily and bumped COOL BEAN.

For some distance approaching and passing the 500 Metres, FORGIVE AND FORGET was unable to improve when taken back through the field by HEAR THE ROAR which was giving ground abruptly.

When FORGIVE AND FORGET shifted out approaching the 400 Metres to improve around HEAR THE ROAR, SUPER STRIKE was inconvenienced when unable to continue improving between that horse and WAYFOONG EXPRESS.

Passing the 300 Metres, HO HO LIFE got its head on the side and shifted in, resulting in its rider, T Angland, changing his whip into his right hand.

After the race, W C Marwing reported that HEAR THE ROAR made an abnormal breathing noise during the race.

A veterinary inspection of HEAR THE ROAR immediately following the race confirmed the horse to be a roarer.

The performance of HEAR THE ROAR, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, HEAR THE ROAR 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 WAYFOONG EXPRESS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

EMPEROR CLAUDIUS and COOL BEAN were sent for sampling.
