Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Columbus Line settled in the one-out, one-back, peeled four deep soon after straightening and quickened nicely to take control 150m out to score a deserving first win at his 20 th start. Punted late Happy Goal went straight to the front through even sections, cornered a length on top and kept on gamely to be a clear second. Positive Energy went forward yet again from a wide gate to park outside the leader, straightened three deep and was gradually giving ground 100m out to just hold Flying Keeper for a placing. Flying Keeper made his run third from the rear after jumping slow as usual, cornered five deep and was hitting the line with purpose. Second favourite Cosmo One enjoyed a lovely run on the back of the speed but only kept on evenly when asked for a response. Take The Rap settled three back and one off the rails, rounded the final bend six deep and came up one-paced when popped the question.

Racing Incident Report


FLYING KEEPER was slow to begin.

SPLENDID VICTORY (C Y Ho) began awkwardly and shortly after the start was bumped by PROSPERITY AETHON which was taken in by MIGHT AND VISION.

In this incident, C Y Ho momentarily lost the use of his right stirrup iron.

Shortly after the start, TELECOM CHIEF shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of ENJOY THE FUN which became unbalanced.

From a wide barrier, SHANTARAAM was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the 1100 Metres, SPLENDID VICTORY, which was racing ungenerously, shifted out and bumped FLYING KEEPER which became unbalanced when racing tight inside SHANTARAAM.

After this, SPLENDID VICTORY continued to prove difficult to settle and making the first turn and again approaching the 700 Metres got its head on the side and shifted out.

At the entrance to the Straight, DRAGON CHOICE shifted out and bumped SHANTARAAM.

For the majority of the race, CLASSIC FIGURE travelled wide and without cover.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of W M Lai (TAKE THE RAP), 6th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horse's finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on PROSPERITY AETHON at the request of Trainer D J Hall.

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

Before being allowed to race again, PROSPERITY AETHON will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

COLUMBUS LINE and HAPPY GOAL were sent for sampling.
