Recap by phillip woo

Happy Rocky eased back from a wide gate to eventually settle third from the rear and one off the rails, improved his position at the 500m to have one outside him coming to the final bend and quickened nicely to win going away 60m out for a first win at his eighth outing with a step up in distance and return to the Valley. Favourite Young Talent enjoyed a lovely run one-out, one-back, made his move three deep at the 400m, hit the front 100m out and found one too smart on this occasion. G-One Leader enjoyed a lovely run underneath Young Talent, cornered five deep and kept plugging away to grab a placing with a step up in distance and drop in grade. Cultural City slotted behind midfield and one off the rails from a tricky gate, cornered with two wider out and did some nice work late to snatch a First-4 spot. Elegance Klammer made a mild bid after a rail's run in midfield as one of the favourites. Owners' Glory got going from the rear after drawing widest out. King Of Reason worked to a narrow lead at the 400m after stalking Jolly Good Star, still had a length advantage at the 200m and seemingly hit a wall at the 100m. Jolly Good Star set moderate fractions on the lead, was headed approaching the final bend and stopped badly approaching the 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (171)-PLOVER COVE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Metres

When being saddled, HOXO reared and struck its head.

Acting on advice from the Veterinary Officer that HOXO was not suitable to race, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of the horse.

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

JOLLY GOOD STAR was tightened for room on jumping between YOUNG TALENT and G-ONE LEADER which shifted out.

INDIGO WAY was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, OWNERS' GLORY, GREAT SPEED and HAPPY ROCKY were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 450 Metres, OWNERS' GLORY was taken wider by HAPPY ROCKY which shifted out to improve.

YOUNG TALENT made the Home Turn awkwardly and in the Straight lay out under pressure.

When questioned, C Y Ho (YOUNG TALENT) stated that passing the 600 Metres he was racing behind KING OF REASON.

He said approaching the 500 Metres YOUNG TALENT was travelling strongly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of KING OF REASON due to the moderate tempo of the race.

He said rather than check YOUNG TALENT away from the heels of KING OF REASON, he elected to shift out from behind that horse and allowed YOUNG TALENT to improve to the outside of KING OF REASON.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that KING OF REASON had sustained a wound to the left hind leg.

A veterinary inspection of GREAT SPEED immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HAPPY ROCKY and YOUNG TALENT were sent for sampling.
