Recap by phillip woo

Loving Star enjoyed a lovely run on the back of a slow pace, worked to the front along the inside at the 150m and repelled a challenge from favourite Kokoda to score with money coming for him late. Kokoda settled one off the rails in fourth and did stay on well with every chance. One of A Kind bided his time behind midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two deeper out and finished well to run down Plain Blue Banner for a placing. Plain Blue Banner parked outside the leader Hurry Hurry Up, straightened three deep and kept on one-paced over the final 100m to just hold off Dragon Glory, who ran on reasonably well three deep in the straight run following a rail's run in midfield. Expectator settled third from the rear and finished all right down the far outside despite an unfavourable pace. Hurry Hurry Up set a dawdling pace on the lead, cornered a half-length on top and gradually gave way. Southern Springs was caught without cover in midfield, swung the final bend with one wider out and was struggling 150m out. Thumped late in betting, Safari Magic had nothing left in the tank at the top of the straight after rushing forward without cover at the 800m to settle to fourth at the 500m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (154)-SHUM WAN HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

SAFARI MAGIC began awkwardly and then despite being ridden along in the early stages failed to muster speed.

Then after travelling a short distance, SAFARI MAGIC became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by DRAGON GLORY which was crowded for room inside EXPECTATOR before that horse was shifted out to relieve the tightening to DRAGON GLORY.

From the outside barriers, BETTER ANNOUNCE and PANTHER RUN were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, KOKODA, when being steadied to allow PLAIN BLUE BANNER to cross, proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

Passing the 1100 Metres, EXPECTATOR and SAFARI MAGIC raced tight.

Approaching the 900 Metres, KOKODA shifted out when awkwardly placed behind PLAIN BLUE BANNER.

After this, KOKODA continued to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PLAIN BLUE BANNER for some distance.

After the 900 Metres, SAFARI MAGIC was left racing wide and without cover and was consequently allowed to improve into a more forward position, however, continued to race wide and without cover.

SOUTHERN SPRINGS raced wide and without cover until after the 700 Metres.

Approaching the 400 Metres, ONE OF A KIND momentarily raced tight between SAFARI MAGIC and DRAGON GLORY which shifted out away from the heels of LOVING STAR.

After the 300 Metres, LOVING STAR was shifted to the inside of HURRY HURRY UP to obtain clear running.

DRAGON GLORY, which was following, was shifted out away from the heels of LOVING STAR in consequence.

Near the 150 Metres, DRAGON GLORY was shifted out when disappointed for running between HURRY HURRY UP and PLAIN BLUE BANNER which was taken in by KOKODA (G Mosse).

KOKODA then continued to shift in, resulting in PLAIN BLUE BANNER racing in restricted room between that horse and HURRY HURRY UP.

G Mosse was reprimanded.

J Moreira (SOUTHERN SPRINGS) was reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where appropriate and where circumstances permit.

When questioned, M Chadwick stated that he had been asked to ride MIGHTY EQUUS behind the speed if possible so that the horse would be able to see out the distance of tonight's race which it was attempting for just the second time.

He said he was also advised that if MIGHTY EQUUS began slowly which it had done in the past, he should ride it where it was comfortable and with cover.

He said after being loaded, MIGHTY EQUUS became fractious and as the start was effected bounded in the air and consequently lost ground.

He said given the manner in which MIGHTY EQUUS began, he then shifted the horse across behind runners in the early stages to obtain a position on the rail but towards the rear.

A veterinary inspection of SOUTHERN SPRINGS and SAFARI MAGIC immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LOVING STAR and KOKODA were sent for sampling.
