Recap by phillip woo

Firming late in betting, Jazzy Feeling settled third from the rear and two off the rails with cover, swung the final bend with one wider out, quickened nicely to hit the front 150m out and just held off rank outsider Spinning Dancer for the win. Spinning Dancer was ridden cold from a wide gate, was still a distant last straightening widest out and finished with a flurry to make it close at the wire in a much-improved performance. Invictus settled midfield along the fence, angled into the clear five deep upon straightening and got up final 20m for a placing. Smart Ball was caught three deep for the most part fore of midfield, pushed on at the 850m to park outside the leader Double Glory at the 600m, cornered a half-length on top and grudgingly gave way late. Electronic Fortune made some ground late along the paint following a ground-saving run behind midfield without menacing. Favourite First Sight Love bided his time second from the rear along the rails, loomed one off underneath Smart Ball at the 200m and came up flat final 100m. Smashed late in betting, Lucky Bonus was up vying for the lead until taking the sit at the 1,000m, shifted four deep for clear running at the 250m and peaked on his run 100m out. Grand Elite finished tailed off following a handy run with cover.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (488)-THE POLICE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1650Metres

When being taken across behind runners from a wide barrier, SPINNING DANCER shifted in shortly after the start and bumped the hindquarters of SMART BALL which became unbalanced.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, FIRST SIGHT LOVE was steadied when crowded for room between JAZZY FEELING and GENKI TWINS, both of which shifted slight ground.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, JAZZY FEELING was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GENKI TWINS which shifted out.

After the 900 Metres, SMART BALL was left racing without cover and subsequently was allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead near the 600 Metres.

FIRST SIGHT LOVE had some difficulty obtaining clear running passing the 300 Metres.

When questioned, M L Yeung stated that he had been instructed to ride LUCKY BONUS in a midfield position.

He said at the start LUCKY BONUS shifted out and bumped FIRST SIGHT LOVE and then would not settle in the early stages.

He said he restrained LUCKY BONUS for a considerable distance in the early stages in an endeavour to position the horse behind INVICTUS, however, the more he steadied LUCKY BONUS, the more it wanted to race on the bit.

He added when horses drawn wider improved their positions approaching the winning post on the first occasion, he had hoped to be able to obtain cover behind these horses, however, after being bumped by GRAND ELITE passing the winning post on the first occasion LUCKY BONUS continued to over-race and he was not able to steady the horse and ride it in a midfield position as instructed.

He said because of its racing manners LUCKY BONUS raced in a more forward position than had been anticipated and was then not able to close off strongly.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of GRAND ELITE, Z Purton stated that whilst he did not have to overly ride his mount along in the early stages to obtain a forward position, he was required to niggle at it to ensure that it maintained its position.

He said passing the winning post on the first occasion he was able to obtain a position one horse off the fence behind the leaders and GRAND ELITE travelled well until approaching the 600 Metres at which time the horse came off the bridle.

He said he placed GRAND ELITE under pressure prior to the Home Turn, however, it did not respond to his riding and shortly after entering the Straight became unbalanced in its action and gave ground noticeably after the 200 Metres.

He added whilst he was not able to detect any soreness or lameness with GRAND ELITE, the horse was not striding out comfortably in the Straight.

Mr C Fownes, the trainer of GRAND ELITE, said the horse had pleased him since its last run and a forward showing was anticipated.

He said GRAND ELITE had experienced problems in the past, however, the horse presented no issues prior to tonight!|s race.

A veterinary inspection of GRAND ELITE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of GRAND ELITE, which weakened in the Straight to finish at the tail of the field, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, GRAND ELITE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of SIGHT LOVER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FIRST SIGHT LOVE, SIGHT LOVER, JAZZY FEELING and SPINNING DANCER were sent for sampling.
