Recap by phillip woo

Firming late, Smart Ball got away with an easy lead from gate nine, cornered just over a length on top, was headed 150m out by Invictus and fought back doggedly close to home for a first win in his initial Valley run over a mile. Invictus settled on the back of the speed along the rails, poked his head in front one off at the 150m and found one better on the day. Riyadh made his run fourth from the back near the inside, stayed near the inside upon straightening and was finding the line well for a placing. Genki Twins made his run along the rails in midfield, moved to third three deep at the 300m and was one-paced over the last 100m. Well-punted late, Green Manner settle third from the rear and one off the rails, switched out five deep when the gap closed on him at the 150m and stayed on evenly thereafter to finish just out of a First-4 spot. Classic Jewellery settled behind midfield and one off the rails, angled off heels for clear running with two wider out at the 250m and was running on reasonably well thereafter. Medallist had a perfect run one-out, one-back, turned the final bend with two wider out and came up flat over the final 150m. Favourite Ho In One only had a couple behind him coming to the final bend and was struggling 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (451)-GLORY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

HOME WITH GLORY began awkwardly and had to be ridden along for some distance after the start to obtain a forward position.

HOLIDAY SUN began awkwardly.

From the outside barriers, GALAXY PRANCER and GREEN MANNER were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 700 Metres, GREEN MANNER commenced to race keenly and was shifted out when being checked away from the heels of CLASSIC JEWELLERY.

CLASSIC JEWELLERY was badly held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 300 Metres was shifted out away from the heels of MIGHTY HIGH which was giving ground.

Near the 150 Metres, GREEN MANNER was shifted out away from the heels of GENKI TWINS after being disappointed for running between that horse and RIYADH which shifted out.

In this incident, RIYADH became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by GREEN MANNER.

When questioned regarding his riding of HO IN ONE in the early stages, G Mosse stated that he had been instructed to ride the horse in about 5th or 6th position with cover.

He said he was asked to ensure that the horse remained racing one horse off the fence to allow it the opportunity to make its run on the outside of horses in the Straight.

He said HO IN ONE began well and as he was clear of runners to his inside, he elected to shift across gradually rather than unbalance HO IN ONE and immediately shift that horse across to race outside INVICTUS.

He said as he was shifting HO IN ONE across to race closer to the rail, he received a call from the rider of HOME WITH GLORY alerting him that he was not clear of that runner.

He said as HOME WITH GLORY had missed the start, he felt that at all stages prior to receiving the call, it was available to him to cross that horse.

He said he was caught unaware by the manner in which HOME WITH GLORY was ridden along in the early stages and he was then not able to cross that horse as he would likely have caused significant interference.

He added after receiving the call from the rider of HOME WITH GLORY, he was also unable to ride his mount along to cross that horse as SMART BALL was in the process of crossing HO IN ONE and were he to pressure his mount in an endeavour to cross the horse to his inside, this would have placed HO IN ONE very close to the heels of SMART BALL.

He said because of these circumstances HO ON ONE was left racing wide in the early stages and was then left racing without cover near the 1000 Metres.

G Mosse was severely reprimanded for his riding of HO IN ONE in the early stages and advised that, in the opinion of the Stewards, he was not decisive in shifting HO IN ONE across to a position closer to the rail in the early stages when it was available for him to do so.

He was further advised that this was the second occasion during this racemeeting alone that he had been spoken to in respect of travelling wide and without cover which was of concern to the Stewards.

He was reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts in such a manner that they are afforded the best possible run in the race and are consequently given every opportunity to finish in the best possible position.

A veterinary inspection of HO IN ONE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of MEDALLIST and HOME WITH GLORY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HO IN ONE, SMART BALL and INVICTUS were sent for sampling.
