Recap by phillip woo

Kharu landed a beautiful box-seat spot from a good gate behind the sedate fractions of Sir John up front, pulled out three deep for a clear shot at the 250m and ran on steadily to come out on top 10m out in a blanket finish. Early favourite Rising Power travelled third from the rear near the inside, copped a check four deep at the 250m, then had to switch off heels at the 100m and finished willingly thereafter to make it close on the wire. He was certainly unlucky not to have won. King On Earth straightened with two wider out after travelling one off behind midfield and finished willing to make it a thriller on the line. Yeung Sing came widest after travelling at the rear from a good gate and dashed well to just miss a placing. Archer's Bow stalked the leader Sir John one off the rails and grudgingly gave way off a big weight. Mobile King was another who made a bold move from near the back with three wider out to just miss the board. He'll come on for this run and will be looking forward to 1,800m at this course. Sir John put them to sleep after leading 1,500m out and was swamped 30m out for a placing. Mr Vanilla stayed near the inside upon straight following a rail's run in midfield, shifted three deep at the 200m and plugged on to just miss the frame.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (293)-PATERSON HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

COLOURFUL PROFIT was crowded for room on jumping between MOBILE KING which stumbled at the start and WINE LOVERS which shifted in despite the efforts of its rider.

After this, COLOURFUL PROFIT was shifted across behind runners.

RISING POWER was also tightened for room on jumping between KING ON EARTH and AMAZING GIFT which shifted in.

MR VANILLA began awkwardly.

For some distance approaching and passing the 1300 Metres, KING ON EARTH proved difficult to settle and was checked away from the heels of AMAZING GIFT.

RISING POWER, which was following and also proving difficult to settle, was hampered in consequence.

For some distance approaching and passing the 1000 Metres, COLOURFUL PROFIT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of REAL GENERAL.

In the early part of the Straight, COLOURFUL PROFIT got its head on the side and hung in and near the 250 Metres shifted out away from RISING POWER which was attempting to shift to the outside of REAL GENERAL.

Approaching the 200 Metres, RISING POWER shifted out abruptly when being severely checked away from the heels of REAL GENERAL which was giving ground, resulting in COLOURFUL PROFIT having to be steadied away from the heels of RISING POWER.

Passing the 150 Metres, RISING POWER was shifted to the outside of KING ON EARTH after being disappointed for running between that horse and REAL GENERAL.

Throughout the race, REAL GENERAL travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the performance of AMAZING GIFT, U Rispoli stated that, in his opinion, the horse was reluctant to race amongst other horses.

He said he was obliged to commence riding AMAZING GIFT along prior to the 900 Metres in order to have it maintain its position inside REAL GENERAL.

He said for a significant distance after this he had to ride AMAZING GIFT along vigorously as the horse was at all times reluctant to hold its position behind ARCHER'S BOW and between KHARU and REAL GENERAL.

He added, despite being ridden out in the Straight, AMAZING GIFT did not finish off the race even when other runners were no longer around the horse.

A veterinary inspection of AMAZING GIFT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of AMAZING GIFT, a favourite for tonight??s race, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, AMAZING GIFT will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on RISING POWER at the request of Trainer C W Chang.

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

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

A veterinary inspection of COLOURFUL PROFIT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

AMAZING GIFT, KHARU and RISING POWER were sent for sampling.
