Recap by phillip woo

Boy Oh Boy slotted in perfectly third and one off the rails from a wide gate with a gear change to blinkers, straightened three deep, assumed the lead 150m out and drew clear for a convincing win. Favourite Affection settled second in the run along the rails after a sluggish break, assumed the front 300m out and kept on gamely. Grand Champion settled behind midfield and on the rails after being crowded out at the start, shifted into the clear with three wider out at the 200m and ran on steadily to finish a distant third. It was a nice effort in defeat at only his second run this term. Forever Ahead made his run fourth from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend widest out and got going without menacing. Bright Star made some progress to make it close for fourth. Natural Champion kept on OK after a midfield run along the rails. No Ties was never a factor. Let Me Go rolled forward to dictate the running but was stopping 200m out. Safari Magic found nothing under pressure.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (736)-WORLD CITY HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Metres

GRAND CHAMPION began very awkwardly, resulting in its rider, K C Leung, becoming badly unbalanced in the saddle.

A short distance later, GRAND CHAMPION was checked when crowded for room between SAFARI MAGIC and HONEY KING PRAWN which was taken out by BRIGHT STAR which in turn was taken out by LET ME GO which shifted out after beginning awkwardly.

From a wide barrier, TELECOM PRINCE was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 900 Metres, NATURAL CHAMPION lost ground when crowded for room inside HONEY KING PRAWN which was taken in by SAFARI MAGIC which shifted in momentarily when proving difficult to settle.

When SAFARI MAGIC was directed out to relieve the tightening to runners to its inside, it shifted out and bumped MARK TWO, resulting in that horse being taken wider.

Then near the 800 Metres, NATURAL CHAMPION was again momentarily crowded for room inside HONEY KING PRAWN which shifted in slightly when awkwardly placed close to the heels of BOY OH BOY.

Approaching the 600 Metres, TELECOM PRINCE was awkwardly placed inside the heels of GRAND CHAMPION which lay in marginally.

Also approaching the 600 Metres, BOY OH BOY shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of MARK TWO which became unbalanced.

Rounding the Home Turn, BOY OH BOY and MARK TWO then raced tight.

In the early part of the Straight, TELECOM PRINCE (R Fourie) got its head on the side and hung in and near the 300 Metres was checked away from the heels of GRAND CHAMPION.

After this, TELECOM PRINCE continued to hang in under pressure and proved difficult to ride until after the 200 Metres.

Passing the 100 Metres, R Fourie dropped his left rein.

Passing the 250 Metres, BRIGHT STAR and FOREVER AHEAD bumped.

In the Straight, NO TIES hung in and proved difficult to ride.

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

The performances of HONEY KING PRAWN and GOLAN POWER, both of which finished tailed out, were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, HONEY KING PRAWN and GOLAN POWER will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SAFARI MAGIC, Z Purton stated that his mounts action did not feel completely free on the way to the barriers, however, after being given a good warm up on arrival at the Start the horses action freed up.

He said in the early stages he rode his mount along to obtain a forward position, however, in the run to the first turn SAFARI MAGIC raced greenly and wanted to shift ground on a number of occasions.

He said after making the first turn near the 800 Metres SAFARI MAGIC commenced to race more tractably, however, after the 300 Metres got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of BRIGHT STAR which shifted in.

He added after having to steady SAFARI MAGIC away from the heels of BRIGHT STAR, he commenced to ride his mount along again, however, at this time SAFARI MAGIC was a beaten horse and having in mind the manner in which it raced at stages of the event, he eased it down over the final 200 Metres.

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