Recap by phillip woo

Well-punted Archippus was patiently ridden second from the rear and two off the rails from a wide gate, swung the final bend very deep and finished up nicely to take control 60m out to remain unbeaten in two starts, despite a rise in weight. Medic Kingdom settled a distant second and one off the rails behind K-Moochi, rounded the final bend three deep and kept plugging away to grab second close to home with money coming for him late. Amazing Always made his run worse than midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend six deep and finished up reasonably well to make it interesting in the battle for the minors. K-Moochi rolled forward to easily cross Medic Kingdom for the lead at the 1,250m, established a two-length margin coming to the final bend and was swamped late for a placing. Early favourite Lucky Day made his run behind midfield and two off the rails with cover, swung the final bend with two wider out and made some ground late without menacing. Ascension made his run fourth from the rear along the paint, cornered one off and finished up reasonably well.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (301)-NAM KOK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Metres

After being loaded, LEGEND EXPRESS became fractious and reared and then was taken across behind runners shortly after the start after being bumped by ARCHIPPUS which shifted out.

ASCENSION was crowded for room at the start between GOOD DIRECTIONS and GLAMOROUS HONOUR which shifted in abruptly after beginning awkwardly.

After being crossed by K-MOOCHI after the 1200 Metres, MEDIC KINGDOM proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

Also after the 1200 Metres, GLAMOROUS HONOUR was left racing wide and without cover.

SUPREME PROFIT lost its right hind plate near the 1100 Metres.

Near the 700 Metres, ABLE MAGIC, which was laying out, was steadied away from the heels of SUPREME PROFIT.

Then passing the 600 Metres, ABLE MAGIC was crowded for room inside SUPREME PROFIT which got its head on the side and lay in momentarily.

When questioned, M Chadwick stated that, from barrier 12, he had been instructed to position LUCKY DAY behind the speed if possible.

He said after beginning well, he observed a number of horses drawn more favourably than LUCKY DAY being ridden along to obtain forward positions and he felt that he would have had to make too much use of LUCKY DAY to clear those horses in order to be prominently placed.

He said therefore he elected to shift across and obtain a position with cover which he was able to do near the 1100 Metres.

He added LUCKY DAY travelled only fairly and finished off the race one-paced as it did at its most recent start.

A veterinary inspection of LEGEND EXPRESS and SILVER DRAGON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ARCHIPPUS and MEDIC KINGDOM were sent for sampling.
