Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Pikachu was strung up in traffic after cornering three deep following a handy run but closed off nicely with clear running 150m out to wear down Precision King on the wire for a third victory this term. Precision King was up in class and distance but held on gamely after setting strong fractions on the front. Wonderful Moments settled one off in second, loomed a winning chance three deep and seem to hit a wall 100m out. Majestic Anthem travelled outside Pikachu, straightened six deep and ran on steadily to finish a non-threatening fourth. Racing Hero settled worse than midfield along the rails, swung the final bend with three wider out and ran on steadily without menacing. What You Dream settled second from the rear after jumping slow, still had a tonne of work ahead after straightening three deep and was doing his best work late when the race was all but over. He's clearly a better miler. Happy Era held his ground in the drive to the wire after a deep run without cover in midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (382)-LION CITY HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1400Metres

On entering the track, LOTUS BREEZE became very fractious, resulting in O Doleuze being dislodged.

LOTUS BREEZE then continued riderless for some time before being captured and taken to the Start.

On arrival at the Start, LOTUS BREEZE was examined by the Veterinary Officer and found to be not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of LOTUS BREEZE.

Before being allowed to race again, LOTUS BREEZE will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

HAPPY ERA proved difficult to load.

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

WHAT YOU DREAM and PREMIUM CHAMPION were crowded for room on jumping between TRUMP and PIKACHU, both of which shifted ground.

From wide barriers, PRINCE FALCON and GREAT SKY were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 1000 Metres, HAPPY ERA was left racing wide and without cover.

RACING HERO, which was inclined to lay in under pressure, had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

The performance of PREMIUM CHAMPION, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

When questioned regarding his riding of WHAT YOU DREAM, N Rawiller stated that he had been instructed to ride the horse in a midfield position if possible from its good barrier draw.

He said on jumping WHAT YOU DREAM was crowded for room between runners which resulted in it being awkwardly placed close to the heels of TRUMP to its inside.

He said because of this WHAT YOU DREAM took a number of strides to get balanced and was required to race further back in the field than had been intended.

He said after the 1300 Metres he slapped his mount down the shoulder with the whip in an endeavour to have it improve its position and be closer to midfield if possible, however, WHAT YOU DREAM did not show any early speed.

He said the pace of the race after the 900 Metres quickened appreciably and WHAT YOU DREAM was always off the bridle chasing and was not able to balance up at any stage.

He said after the 600 Metres he was niggling at WHAT YOU DREAM in an endeavour to have the horse improve its position and slapped the horse down the shoulder on a number of occasions with the whip as he was aware that he was further back in the field than had been intended, however, at this time the pace of the race remained very fast and, despite being ridden along, WHAT YOU DREAM was not able to make up any ground until rounding the Home Turn.

He added he placed WHAT YOU DREAM under heavy pressure at the entrance to the Straight and commenced to use the whip on the horse at the 300 Metres after which WHAT YOU DREAM closed off the race well.

N Rawiller was advised that notwithstanding that WHAT YOU DREAM had been hampered at the start and that the pace of the race in the middle stages was strong, nonetheless the Stewards had concerns with the manner in which WHAT YOU DREAM was ridden in today's race.

He was also advised to ensure that he rides his mounts in a manner so as to ensure that they do not get too far out of their ground and are not left with too much to do.

He was advised that his riding of WHAT YOU DREAM in this race had come under notice and he must ride his mounts in such a manner so as to ensure that there is no room for query.

A veterinary inspection of WHAT YOU DREAM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on SKYROCKETS at the request of Trainer P F Yiu.

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

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

PIKACHU and PRECISION KING were sent for sampling.
