Recap by phillip woo

First Sight Love was restrained from a wide gate to settle second from the rear and one off the rails, made his move 500m out, cornered with one wider out and sustained his run to take control 50m out for back-to-back wins. Flying Elite enjoyed a nice run in midfield, swung the final bend five deep and finished well to grab second inside the final 20m. Best-backed late, Mighty K assumed the box-seat run after jumping swell from gate two, stayed to the inside upon straightening and just wore down Yee Cheong Star in the dying stages for a tierce position. Yee Cheong Star rolled forward from a wide gate to eventually lead at the 1,200m, still had a length on top upon straightening and grudgingly gave way late. Supreme Essence was half carting in midfield near three deep with cover, rounded the final bend with three wider out and ran on to just finishing outside the placings. Specked late, Mega Champion settled fourth and one off the rails, rallied four deep upon straightening and kept on one-paced over the final 150m with every chance. Dual Happy made his run fore of midfield along the rails and came up flat when asked for an effort near the inside upon straightening. He's not good enough for this grade. Distill made his run at the tails and was never a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (314)-CAUSEWAY HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 3 - 1650Metres

On arrival at the Start, Z Purton (YEE CHEONG STAR) expressed concerns over the horse's action.

YEE CHEONG STAR was examined by the Veterinary Officer who, after the necessary consultations, found the horse suitable to race.

FLYING ELITE began awkwardly and then shortly afterwards was bumped by MIGHTY K which was taken out by DUAL HAPPY.

FLYING ELITE then shifted out, causing DISTILL to be hampered.

AMAZINGLY and FIRST SIGHT LOVE were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

For the major part of the race, EMPEROR CLAUDIUS travelled wide and without cover and then when giving ground in the Straight got its head on the side, hung in and proved difficult to ride.

When questioned, N Pinna stated that AMAZINGLY did not feel comfortable in its action during the race.

He said he placed the horse under pressure in the early part of the Straight, however, AMAZINGLY did not quicken appreciably and as its action, in his opinion, deteriorated, he did not ride it out over the final 100 Metres.

N Pinna was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, wherever circumstances permit, he must ensure that he rides his mounts out all the way to the finishing line so as to ensure that his riding of horses does not come into question.

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

A veterinary inspection of EMPEROR CLAUDIUS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FIRST SIGHT LOVE and FLYING ELITE were sent for sampling.
