Recap by phillip woo

My Little Friend lived up to a neck second last month behind Divine Ten, who franked the form a race earlier with a win in Class Two, with a victory of his own here and can head higher. He was handy in the run one off the outside fence, switched inside off heels for clear running three off at the 250m and quickened nicely to grab outsider Real Treat close to home for the win. Real Treat travelled midfield and two off the grandstand side, switched underneath the early leaders for a clear run at the 300m, hit the front 100m out and found the winner too good in the end in a much-improved effort with a step back in distance. Pure Force was prominent along the stands side, poked his head in front at the 250m and kept on well when headed. Art of Success was patiently ridden third from the rear in the center of the course and was getting going late to get up in the final few metres for a First-4 spot. Slick Bullet travelled behind midfield on the stands side, had to steady off heels at the 200m and again so 50m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (462)-THE MERLION HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

MASTER SOMMELIER began awkwardly and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of ART OF SUCCESS which was taken out by MONTE CASTELLO which in turn was taken out by SKY MAN.

SUPER ABUNDANTE began awkwardly and shortly after the start became unbalanced after bumping with GLORIOUS AVENUE which shifted out after being bumped by PLENTY OF SPEED.

Near the 600 Metres, GLORIOUS AVENUE got its head on the side whilst racing greenly and shifted ground.

ART OF SUCCESS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ROCKET LET WIN after the 600 Metres.

Near the 200 Metres, SLICK BULLET, which was held up for clear running, momentarily raced tight outside DANE PATROL which was awkwardly placed outside SKY MAN which got its head on the side and shifted ground marginally.

SLICK BULLET was then unable to obtain clear running over about the final 150 Metres and consequently was not able to be properly tested.

MY LITTLE FRIEND was badly held up for clear running until passing the 200 Metres.

Passing the 200 Metres, ART OF SUCCESS was shifted out away from the heels of MASTER AETIUS.

When questioned, C K Tong (DANE PATROL) stated that near the 700 Metres he had obtained a position on the outside rail.

He said passing the 500 Metres he was unaware that DANE PATROL had drifted in slightly.

He said when this occurred PURE FORCE improved quickly into tight running to the outside of DANE PATROL and he was then unable to shift back out to re-establish his position on the outside rail.

He added because of this PURE FORCE was able to improve to be racing tight outside DANE PATROL for some distance prior to the 400 Metres.

C K Tong was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must ensure at all times that he rides his mounts in a competitive manner so as to leave no room for query.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on REAL TREAT at the request of Trainer C W Chang.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

MY LITTLE FRIEND and REAL TREAT were sent for sampling.
