Recap by phillip woo

Beauty Sparkle got away with moderate fractions on the lead, cornered near two lengths on to and staved off the late surge of Happy Yeah Yeah for an upset win. Happy Yeah Yeah settled three back and one off the rails, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished up with plenty of purpose. Bundle Of Love couldn't get in with cover near the speed from a middle gate, rounded the final bend with three wider out and kept on gamely to snatch a placing. Rainbow Fighter travelled underneath Happy Yeah Yeah in the run, improved his position to sit just off the leader approaching the final bend, loomed a winning chance three deep at the 200m and peaked on his run 50m out. Windicator Star rushed forward to settle behind midfield along the rails at the 800m after going back early on from the widest gate, came one off upon straightening and stayed on well to just miss a Quartet spot in an improved effort. Exciting Dream eased back to settle third from the rear and one off the rails, rounded the final bend four-to-five deep, was tight for room at the 150m and ran on steadily late between runners. Bundle Of Joy made his run at the tail of the field after jumping slowly, swung the final bend one off the rails and ran on passed beaten rivals.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (591)-WARWICK HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Metres

RAINBOW FIGHTER and HAPPY YEAH YEAH bumped at the start.

PERFECT CHEERS began only fairly and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of CALIFORNIA BOUNTY which shifted in.

WINDICATOR STAR began very awkwardly and shortly after the start was taken across behind runners.

After the 800 Metres, BUNDLE OF LOVE commenced to prove very difficult to settle and blundered near the 750 Metres when being checked away from the heels of CALIFORNIA BOUNTY.

Near the 700 Metres, RAINBOW FIGHTER and BRAVENESS momentarily raced tight inside CALIFORNIA BOUNTY.

Approaching the 700 Metres, MY NAME IS BOND shifted out into a position without cover when racing keenly.

After the 700 Metres, EXCITING DREAM was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BOBO DRAGON.

Passing the 500 Metres, BOBO DRAGON and HAPPY YEAH YEAH raced tight as HAPPY YEAH YEAH shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of BRAVENESS.

Passing the 450 Metres, EXCITING DREAM and MY NAME IS BOND raced tight.

Passing the 200 Metres, PERFECT CHEERS was bumped by BUNDLE OF JOY which was taken in by the tiring CALIFORNIA BOUNTY when improving inside that horse.

Close to the finishing line, BUNDLE OF JOY, which was closing off the race well, was shifted in away from the heels of RAINBOW FIGHTER.

Approaching the finishing line, BEAUTY SPARKLE shifted out abruptly, resulting in RAINBOW FIGHTER being checked away from the heels of that horse, shifting out and causing BRAVENESS to be checked when crowded for rom inside EXCITING DREAM.

When questioned, J Moreira (BUNDLE OF JOY) stated that in pre-race discussions with Trainer D J Hall, it was felt that tonight'S race would be run at a fast tempo as there were a number of horses engaged in the race which had previously been ridden in prominent positions.

He said from barrier 10, it was felt that were BUNDLE OF JOY to be ridden forward from the 1200 Metre start at Happy Valley, there was a strong likelihood that the horse would be left racing wide which would compromise the horse'S ability to finish off the race.

He said it was therefore agreed that the best option was to shift BUNDLE OF JOY across in the early stages to allow it the opportunity to close off the race strongly.

He added when ridden in this manner, BUNDLE OF JOY impressed him in the manner in which it finished off the race and he was of the view that this was the appropriate way to ride the horse given the make-up of tonight'S field.

The Stewards will afford Mr A S Cruz, the trainer of BEAUTY SPARKLE, the opportunity to explain the horse's improved performance prior to the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 4 May 2014.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that EXCITING DREAM was found to have a wound on the upper left eyelid.

A veterinary inspection of BOBO DRAGON and MY NAME IS BOND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

EXCITING DREAM, BEAUTY SPARKLE and HAPPY YEAH YEAH were sent for sampling.
