Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Domineer settled beautifully on the back of the speed, rounded the final bend five deep, hit the front 150m out and kept up a strong gallop for a third win from four outings this term. Tour De Force swung the final bend with two wider out after travelling fourth from the rear and finished willingly to grab second 20m out. Exciting Dream eventually found a spot along the rails in midfield at the 800m, straightened near the inside and ran on steadily to just edge stablemate Frederick Engels in a photo for third. Frederick Engels came on strongly five deep from last to make it tight for a placing with a drop in grade and switch to the Valley. He needs a bit of rating relief. Bullish Friend plugged on to just miss a First-4 spot after a handy run near the inside. Smart Man made his run second from the rear after jumping awkwardly, swung the final bend widest out and made some ground without threatening. Super Jockey rolled forward to sit outside the leader Go Baby Go at the 650m, had his chance and faded over the final 150m. Happy Yeah Yeah settled one-out, one-back, shifted out abruptly approaching mid-straight and was eased down over the final 100m. Go Baby Go faded badly after dictating the run. He's in bad shape.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (249)-THE HAPPY VALLEY TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 1 - 1200Metres

As the start was effected, SMART MAN lifted its front feet off the ground and then began awkwardly, resulting in the horse losing ground.

BULLISH FRIEND (N Callan) began very awkwardly and shifted in abruptly, resulting in EXCITING DREAM, SUPER JOCKEY and BEST ELEVEN all being crowded for room.

As the Stewards were satisfied that N Callan had made satisfactory endeavour to prevent BULLISH FRIEND from shifting in, no further action was taken.

FREDERICK ENGELS was crowded for room on jumping between GO BABY GO and HAPPY YEAH YEAH which shifted out.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, DOMINEER momentarily raced in restricted room inside HAPPY YEAH YEAH which got its head on the side and shifted in marginally.

At the same point, EXCITING DREAM became unbalanced when racing tight inside BULLISH FRIEND which shifted in despite the efforts of its rider.

Approaching and passing the 400 Metres, FREDERICK ENGELS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of TOUR DE FORCE.

After the 400 Metres, BULLISH FRIEND was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY YEAH YEAH.

Rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight, HAPPY YEAH YEAH hung out badly and consequently was not able to be properly tested.

The racing manners of HAPPY YEAH YEAH were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, HAPPY YEAH YEAH will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial around a bend.

Approaching and passing the 100 Metres, FREDERICK ENGELS and BULLISH FRIEND raced tight inside TOUR DE FORCE which lay in under pressure.

When questioned, M Demuro stated that he had been asked to ride SUPER JOCKEY in a forward position, either in the lead or outside the lead if possible.

He said after being crowded for room at the start he rode his mount along in the early stages and approaching the first turn near the 1000 Metres was positioned behind DOMINEER.

He said making the turn SUPER JOCKEY shifted out and blundered after striking the heels of BULLISH FRIEND.

He said he allowed SUPER JOCKEY to shift out into a three wide position along the Back Straight and improved its position so as to obtain the position outside the leader GO BABY GO after the 600 Metres.

He said SUPER JOCKEY then travelled comfortably and the horse initially responded to his riding when placed under pressure in the early part of the Straight.

He said however that approaching the 200 Metres SUPER JOCKEY came under heavy pressure and weakened out of the race over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of SUPER JOCKEY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPY YEAH YEAH immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

DOMINEER and TOUR DE FORCE sent for sampling.
