Recap by phillip woo

Well-fancied late, Fabulous November led from gate five through moderate fractions, cornered three deep a length on top, repelled a challenge from Wonderful Moments and edged clear in the last 150m for an overdue win with a jockey change to Zac Purton. Helene Fun Star settled three back along the rails, shifted out three deep for a clear run at the 350m and finished off willingly to gun down Wonderful Moments on the wire for second with money coming for him late. Wonderful Moments enjoyed the run of the race on the back of the leader, went stride-for-stride when nearly leveling up for the front at the 300m and was gradually giving way over the final 100m. Mac Row settled three back and one off the rails, straightened two and ran on steadily to edge out Peppermint for a First-4 spot. Peppermint bided his second from the rear and between runners, straightened four deep and was doing some nice work late. Big Four was taken back to last from the widest gate, rounded the final bend five deep, shifted to a position one off at the 200m and finished up reasonably well. He won't be far off a winning run from a good gate. Plentiful got a wet-track to his liking but only ran on from behind midfield without threatening. Favourite Flame Hero was restrained from a wide gate to make his run third from the rear and with cover and only pass beaten gallopers late.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (248)-TAN SHAN RIVER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Metres

AMBASSADORSHIP was withdrawn on 13.12.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetence) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter WINNING APEX (A Suborics).

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

HELENE FUN STAR began awkwardly.

WINNING APEX was crowded for room at the start between FABULOUS NOVEMBER and SPINNING DANCER which shifted in.

Shortly after the start, KOKODA shifted in and bumped MR GNOCCHI.

When left racing wide in the early stages, HO HO LIFE was allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead, however, travelled wide and without cover throughout the race.

When being steadied to obtain cover in the early stages, FLAME HERO got its head up on a number of occasions.

Approaching the 1200 Metres, MAC ROW was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SPINNING DANCER which was being steadied in an attempt to obtain cover.

Also approaching the 1200 Metres, FLAME HERO got its head up when steadied away from the heels of KOKODA which, when over-racing, was taken out slightly by MR GNOCCHI.

BIG FOUR, which was following, got its head up in consequence when being steadied.

Near the 1100 Metres, BIG FOUR got its head on the side, shifted out when proving very difficult to settle and was steadied away from the heels of FLAME HERO.

SUMARAND DRAGON travelled keenly approaching and passing the 1100 Metres.

Making the turn near the 900 Metres and particularly rounding the Home Turn, FABULOUS NOVEMBER got its head on the side and hung out.

Rounding the Home Turn, PLENTIFUL was shifted out away from the heels of MAC ROW.

BIG FOUR was held up for clear running until passing the 300 Metres.

Near the 100 Metres, C Y Ho (PEPPERMINT) dropped his right rein.

Close to the finishing line, MAC ROW was shifted out away from the heels of WONDERFUL MOMENTS after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse.

When MAC ROW shifted out, this resulted in BIG FOUR racing in restricted room inside PEPPERMINT.

Because of these incidents, MAC ROW and BIG FOUR were not able to be fully tested over the concluding stages.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of MR GNOCCHI, M L Yeung stated that his mount travelled fairly in the early and middle stages and travelled in a similar manner to when he had previously ridden the horse.

He said however that when placed under pressure rounding the Home Turn, MR GNOCCHI became unbalanced in its action and then failed to finish off the race.

He said, in his opinion, MR GNOCCHI did not appreciate racing on today's rain affected track.

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

MR GNOCCHI, FABULOUS NOVEMBER and HELENE FUN STAR were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

After the running of Race 2, the track classification was officially changed from "Good" to "Good to Yielding".

This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective.

As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 2 being run on a track rated "Good to Yielding".
