Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Gun Pit overcome interference passing the 700m following a prominent run to hit the front four deep at the 250m and kept on strongly for back-to-back wins on the dirt. Buddy Buddies had no pace early on, rolled forward to settle worse than midfield along the rails at the 1,200m, angled into open running five deep at the 250m and finished well to easily take second 100m out. Lucky Hammer bided his time fifth from the rear near the inside, angled off the tiring Golden Addiction at the 150m and ran down Invictus close to the wire for a placing. Best-backed late, Invictus was handy in the run along the rails, stayed near the inside upon straightening and kept plugging away to just miss a placing. Expedite was headed for the lead at the 650m by Golden Addiction, reclaimed the front 350m out and was swamped in the final few metres for a placing. Supreme Essence settled fourth from the rear from a wide gate and was getting going late down the outside without menacing. Golden Addiction was posted without cover near the speed, rolled to the front 650m out and giving ground 250m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (739)-VENUS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

DOUBLE GLORY was withdrawn on 24.6.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter SUPREME ESSENCE (W M Lai).

Before being allowed to race again, DOUBLE GLORY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Shortly after the start, LUCKY HAMMER and GOLDLAND DANCER were crowded for room between EXPEDITE and WINNING APEX which shifted in.

In this incident, WINNING APEX became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by GOLDLAND DANCER.

From wide barriers, MR MEDICI and PERFECT JOY were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1400 Metres, GOLDLAND DANCER shifted out after being checked away from the heels of GOLDEN ADDICTION.

Approaching the 700 Metres, GUN PIT, which had improved into tight running between GOLDEN ADDICTION (J Moreira) and GALAXY PRANCER, was checked after initially being crowded for room by GOLDEN ADDICTION which shifted in and GALAXY PRANCER which then shifted out.

J Moreira was advised that whilst he had made a satisfactory effort to relieve the tightening to GUN PIT and whilst there had been an equal contribution to the incident from GALAXY PRANCER, nonetheless he had allowed GOLDEN ADDICTION to shift in and initially placed pressure on GUN PIT.

He was advised that whilst competitive riding is encouraged, nonetheless he must ensure that he rides at all times within the Rules.

Approaching the 500 Metres, INVICTUS became unbalanced when briefly tightened inside GALAXY PRANCER which was commencing to give ground.

When questioned, H Bowman stated that due to the manner in which the track was racing, it was felt that GALAXY PRANCER, from barrier 13, would not be able to finish off its race if it was ridden from back in the field and as there did not appear to be abundance of speed and that the two principal chances in the race, namely GUN PIT and GOLDEN ADDICTION would be ridden in forward positions, it was hoped that GALAXY PRANCER may be able to obtain a position behind the speed.

He said approaching the winning post on the first occasion, when ridden along, GALAXY PRANCER became momentarily unbalanced.

He said approaching the 1400 Metres he was left racing in a four wide position and rather than be left racing wide and without cover, he elected to allow his mount to stride forward and race outside the lead.

The performance of GALAXY PRANCER, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, GALAXY PRANCER 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 GOLDEN ADDICTION immediately following the race revealed the horse to have sustained abrasions to the right hind leg.

A veterinary inspection of GOLDLAND DANCER immediately following the race found the horse to be lame in its left front leg and have sustained cuts to both hind pasterns.

Before being allowed to race again, GOLDLAND DANCER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GUN PIT and BUDDY BUDDIES were sent for sampling.
