Recap by phillip woo

Good Choice was ridden second from the rear and three deep with cover, swung the final bend two from the right and let down willingly to get up 20m out for the win. Lucky Hammer settled one off the fence third from the rear, stayed near the inside upon straightening and finished well to grab second close to home. Ka Ying Kid travelled effectively one-out, one-back, poked his head in front nearly three deep at the 100m and was swamped in deep stretch. Jaeger Bomb settled three deep with cover in midfield, had two further out upon straightening and ran on steadily to just miss a placing. Turbo Jewellery ran on steadily widest out without menacing after travelling near the back. Beauty King was posted one off on the lead from a wide gate by Entrusting, shot to a clear lead at the 450m and gave up the chase 150m out. He had excuses. Circuit Star plugged on without ever looking a threat following a one-off trip in midfield despite a move to blinkers. Firming favourite, Reborn To Win cornered four deep following a handy run, ducked to the fence at the 250m and came up flat over the final 150m. Forgive And Forget passed only beaten rivals from the back. Invictus weakened after a no-cover run near the speed.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (194)-STIRLING HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

The Stewards tonight inquired into the reason for KIROV (S277), which was entered for this race, being inadvertently treated.

It was ascertained that KIROV was inadvertently treated with phenylbutazone when SMART BALL (P277) was intended to be treated with this substance.

Acting on a confirmed phone call from Mr D J Hall, the trainer of KIROV, on Saturday, 22 November 2014, KIROV was withdrawn from the entries prior to declarations for this race.

Evidence was tonight taken from Mr Hall, Mr S T Lee, assistant trainer, Mr K H Chow, head lad, Mr K H Wong, work rider, Dr J May, Houseman, Department of Veterinary Clinical Services, and Dr C M Riggs, Head of Veterinary Clinical Services.

Mr Hall pleaded guilty to a breach of Rule 50(2) for having failed in his responsibility for all matters pertaining to the running of his stable.

Mr Hall was fined the sum of $15,000.

In assessing the appropriate penalty, the Stewards took into consideration KIROV was withdrawn prior to declarations.

Mr Lee was advised that no further action would be taken against him whilst Mr Chow and Mr Wong were both advised that a transcript of hearing, together with a report, would be forwarded to Stables Management for their consideration.

Dr May was advised that a report on the circumstances of this matter would also be forwarded to Dr Riggs for his consideration.

CIRCUIT STAR proved difficult to load.

Before being allowed to race again, CIRCUIT STAR will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

As the start was effected, MEDIC KINGDOM bounded in the air and consequently began awkwardly and lost ground.

ENTRUSTING and JAEGER BOMB bumped at the start.

JAEGER BOMB then shifted out, resulting in LUCKY HAMMER being crowded for room inside KA YING KID.

This resulted in both LUCKY HAMMER and JAEGER BOMB both becoming unbalanced.

From wide barriers, FORGIVE AND FORGET, GOOD CHOICE and TURBO JEWELLERY were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, BEAUTY KING was bumped by ENTRUSTING which shifted out.

Approaching the 400 Metres, MEDIC KINGDOM was steadied away from the heels of REBORN TO WIN which lost ground when taken back by ENTRUSTING which was giving ground.

Rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, CIRCUIT STAR was held up when travelling close to the heels of INVICTUS.

In the early part of the Straight, MEDIC KINGDOM got its head on the side and lay in under pressure.

For some distance after the 200 Metres, FORGIVE AND FORGET was checked when held up behind INVICTUS which was giving ground.

For the majority of the race, INVICTUS travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

When questioned regarding the performance of REBORN TO WIN, M Demuro stated that after enjoying a good run behind the leader ENTRUSTING, his mount was taken back through the field after the 500 Metres which resulted in the horse losing ground.

He said after this REBORN TO WIN appeared to be one-paced as it was then not able to quicken when able to shift out from behind ENTRUSTING.

He added in the early part of the Straight REBORN TO WIN lay in under pressure and failed to close off the race over the final 200 Metres.

He said whilst REBORN TO WIN was disappointing in its failure to finish off the race, he was of the opinion that the circumstances of the race were not favourable to his mount.

A veterinary inspection of REBORN TO WIN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

B Prebble (TURBO JEWELLERY) was fined the sum of $3,000 for improper use of the whip in that he raised weal marks over the horse's right flank.

A veterinary inspection of CIRCUIT STAR and INVICTUS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

REBORN TO WIN, GOOD CHOICE and LUCKY HAMMER were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

The following horse was replated in the saddling stalls:- Race 2: SHADOWFAXE (left hind) 2.

After the running of Race 1, the track classification was officially changed from "Good' to "Good to Firm'.

This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective.

As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 1 being run on a track rated "Good to Firm'.
