Recap by phillip woo

Fabulous November led easily from gate five, swung the final bend a length on top and kept up a good gallop off a light weight for the win. He has gone very well in his two Valley runs over this trip. Great Spirit settled midfield along the rails, rounded the final bend six deep and finished willingly to make it close on the wire. Early favourite Bullish Friend settled one off in fourth, swung the final bend with two wider out and grabbed a placing. Speedygonzalez was another that had every chance following a box-seat run. Once-raced Always Win travelled without cover the entire trip from behind midfield, swung the final bend with one wider out and kept on reasonably well. He is not be far off a winning run. Smart Man travelled near the back and made some ground down the outside. Happy Yeah Yeah was yielding ground 150m out after rolling forward to press the speed without cover. Sight Believer was never involved after a sluggish break from a wide alley. Go Baby Go dumped his rider at the jump.

Racing Incident Report


GO BABY GO bounded in the air at the start and then landed very awkwardly, resulting in its rider, A Suborics becoming unbalanced and being dislodged.

Before being allowed to race again, GO BABY GO will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial.

After the race, A Suborics was examined by the Club??s medical officers and passed fit to fulfil his remaining race riding engagements.

BULLISH FRIEND began awkwardly.

ALWAYS WIN was crowded for room on jumping between CHARITY JOY and HAPPY YEAH YEAH which shifted out.

From wide barriers, LOTUS BREEZE and SMART MAN were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 800 Metres, CHARITY JOY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BULLISH FRIEND.

After the 800 Metres, ALWAYS WIN was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, KIRAM raced tight inside CHARITY JOY which lay in.

In the early part of the Straight, HAPPY YEAH YEAH got its head on the side and lay out under pressure.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that it had been intended for SIGHT BELIEVER to be ridden in a forward position from the outside barrier.

He said just prior to the start being effected SIGHT BELIEVER became fractious and lunged at the front gates and then when the gates were released the horse bumped the inside of its gate and lifted its front feet off the ground, resulting in it being slow to begin.

He said because of the manner in which SIGHT BELIEVER began, he did not feel it was in the best interests of the horse for it to then be ridden forward given that it was anticipated the race would be run at a strong tempo.

He said therefore he decided to shift SIGHT BELIEVER across behind runners and obtain cover which resulted in it racing much further back in the field than had been intended.

A veterinary inspection of SIGHT BELIEVER immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

A veterinary inspection of CHARITY JOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FABULOUS NOVEMBER and GREAT SPIRIT were sent for sampling.
