Recap by phillip woo

Ho Wongchoy settled behind midfield near the rails, made his move 500m out, swung the final bend with two wider out and took control 150m out for the win. Rising Power made his run just behind Ho Wongchoy, peeled widest out upon straightening and finished nicely to get up in the final few strides for second. Twin Turbo travelled fore of midfield and two off the rails, advanced to the front four deep at the 200m and kept on reasonably well. Golden Scalpel settled a distant third from the rear, straightened four deep and ran on well to inject value into the First-4. Fancied late to jump favourite Full Of Fun settled fourth and one off the rails without cover behind the genuine pace of Plain Red Banner and Heart Wood, moved to second at the 600m, lay out under pressure at the 300m and only held his ground in the drive to the wire. Born To Win bided his time second from the rear and was doing his best work late. Plain Red Banner was a spent runner after stretching the field out at one point 15 lengths from top to bottom and was yielding ground 200m out.

Racing Incident Report


PLAIN RED BANNER lost its left front plate on jumping.

GOLDEN SCALPEL and TERRIFIC MASTER were slow to begin.

From the outside barriers, HOLY MAC and BORN TO WIN were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After travelling a short distance, PLAIN RED BANNER shifted out and bumped HEART WOOD.

Passing the winning position on the first occasion, LITTLE RAINFOREST was steadied away from the heels of FULL OF FUN.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, TERRIFIC MASTER was awkwardly placed inside the heels of BORN TO WIN when reluctant to maintain its position inside that horse.

After the 1000 Metres, FULL OF FUN commenced to prove difficult to settle, got its head up and shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of HEART WOOD.

Near the 850 Metres, TWIN TURBO was taken into a position three wide without cover when LITTLE RAINFOREST shifted out to follow FULL OF FUN.

During this incident and for a short distance afterwards, TWIN TURBO got its head up when proving difficult to settle.

After the 400 Metres and rounding the Home Turn, HEART WOOD raced tight inside FULL OF FUN.

For some distance after the 200 Metres, TERRIFIC MASTER, which was closing off the race fairly, was steadied when awkwardly placed on the heels of HEART WOOD which was shifting out slightly.

Approaching the 150 Metres, FULL OF FUN shifted ground, carrying LITTLE RAINFOREST out and resulting in BORN TO WIN being steadied and taken wider.

When questioned, T H So (RISING POWER) stated that after the 800 Metres he was left racing in a position one horse off the fence behind LITTLE RAINFOREST.

He said as the rail was in the C+3 position tonight, he thought it was in the best interests of RISING POWER to shift in to race on the rail rather than remain racing behind LITTLE RAINFOREST.

He added because of this HO WONGCHOY was then able to improve its position around RISING POWER and assume the two wide position.

He said in hindsight he had erred in shifting to the rail at this time as HO WONGCHOY had consequently obtained a more favourable position.

He said however at the relevant time he felt that to obtain a position on the rail would provide RISING POWER with the best opportunity to close off the race.

T H So was advised his explanation would be reported.

After the race, A Suborics (HOLY MAC) reported that his mount did not feel comfortable in its action after the 200 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of HOLY MAC immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of PLAIN RED BANNER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FULL OF FUN, HO WONGCHOY and RISING POWER were sent for sampling.
