Recap by phillip woo

Jade Christy settled midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out, hit the front 50m out and just held Flame Hero over the final 20m for a second straight win. He's really turned the corner after a move to side-winkers and a crossed nose band. Flame Hero was handily along the rails in fourth or fifth, came two off upon straightening and rallied nicely to just miss. He's caught the eye in both his starts and will be winning races next season. Smart Kids parked outside the leader in second, assumed the front 150m out and found a couple too good in the end. Specked late, Novel Start settled one-out, one-back, swung the final bend five deep and stayed on reasonably well to make it close for third. Good Hong Kong settled behind midfield and on the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and failed to find another gear when popped the question. Loads Of Joy wasn't given a hard time on the front along the rails, cornered a length on top and was giving way inside the 150m in a disappointing effort. Punted late, No Ties made his run at the rear from a wide gate, improved his position to have three behind him coming to the final bend, pushed into the clear with two wider out at the 200m and was running on late without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (763)-JUBILATION HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

STEP FASTER was withdrawn on 9.7.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetence) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter CREATIVE UNION.

Before being allowed to race again, STEP FASTER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

CREATIVE UNION was crowded for room at the start between RISING POWER which began awkwardly and shifted in and RECORD AGAIN which shifted out.

A short distance after the start, CREATIVE UNION and RECORD AGAIN were again crowded for room by GOOD HONG KONG which, after initially shifting out, then shifted out further after being bumped on the hindquarters by RECORD AGAIN.

From a wide barrier, NO TIES was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After being vigorously ridden along in the early stages, DASHING FORTUNE failed to muster speed and when racing wide was taken across behind runners making the turn near the 1000 Metres.

After the 900 Metres, RISING POWER commenced to prove very difficult to settle and shifted in when racing ungenerously, resulting in CREATIVE UNION being crowded for room outside the heels of GOOD HONG KONG.

For a considerable distance after this, RISING POWER continued to race ungenerously and got its head up on a number of occasions.

The racing manners of RISING POWER were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, RISING POWER will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial around a bend.

Making the turn approaching the 600 Metres, GOOD HONG KONG raced tight inside JADE CHRISTY which got its head on the side and shifted in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of NOVEL START.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, RISING POWER, which was continuing to race ungenerously, lost ground when crowded for room between DASHING FORTUNE and CREATIVE UNION which commenced to prove difficult to settle and shifted out away from the heels of JADE CHRISTY.

Passing the 200 Metres, DEHERES THE LOVE, which was giving ground after travelling wide and without cover throughout the race, was steadied away from the heels of JADE CHRISTY (J Moreira) which shifted in when not sufficiently clear.

J Moreira was advised to ensure that he makes every endeavour to keep his mounts on a straight course in similar circumstances.

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

Throughout the race, DASHING FORTUNE travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that NO TIES had lost its left front plate.

A veterinary inspection of DEHERES THE LOVE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had lost its left front plate.

GOOD HONG KONG, JADE CHRISTY and FLAME HERO were sent for sampling.
