Recap by phillip woo

I'm In Charge settled midfield and one off the rails, rallied five deep upon straightening and wore down favourite Teofilo Calva in the final few metres for a third victory from five outings this term. Teofilo Calva landed a one-spot in fourth from a wide gate, advanced to the front four deep at the 150m and couldn't hold the winner's challenge. Jazzy Feeling was ridden fourth from the rear and one off the rails, cornered five deep and ran on nicely to grab Supreme Falcon close to home for a placing. Supreme Falcon made his run underneath Teofilo Calva in fifth, rushed to third four deep at the 100m and was nipped late for a placing. Lang Tai Sing made some ground with one wider out without menacing after travelling second from the rear. Bear Hero was taken hold to settle last from gate four, peeled widest after straightening and ran on without ever threatening. Smart Man made a mild bid from behind midfield. Golden Deer only held his ground over the last 150m after a deep run without cover worse than midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (409)-FAT CHOI HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Metres

At declaration time, M Demuro was declared as the rider of both BEAR HERO and SMART MAN.

It was established that M Demuro had a firm commitment to ride BEAR HERO.

As such, the Stewards permitted U Rispoli to be substituted as the rider of SMART MAN.

For this declaration error, Trainer J Moore was fined $2,000.

On arrival at the Start, it was noted that LANG TAI SING had blood at its mouth due to a cut to its tongue.

LANG TAI SING was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

SPEEDYGONZALEZ and SMART MAN began only fairly.

BEAR HERO began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, LANG TAI SING was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 1000 Metres, I'M IN CHARGE commenced to prove difficult to settle when awkwardly placed close to the heels of TEOFILO CALVA.

Near the 900 Metres, GOLDEN DEER was left racing wide and without cover.

SUPREME FALCON lost its left front plate after the 800 Metres.

In the early part of the Straight, SILLY BUDDIES got its head on the side, was inclined to lay out and became awkwardly placed inside the heels of GO BABY GO.

SILLY BUDDIES was then unable to obtain clear running and near the 200 Metres was steadied when disappointed for running between GO BABY GO and CALIFORNIA BOUNTY which got its head on the side and lay out under pressure.

SILLY BUDDIES was again crowded for room passing the 100 Metres between GO BABY GO and CALIFORNIA BOUNTY, both of which shifted ground.

When questioned regarding his riding of BEAR HERO, M Demuro stated that he was asked to ride the horse in the same manner as he did at its most recent start when it finished off the race strongly to run third.

He said in the early stages he rode the horse quietly as it had previously been explained to him that BEAR HERO can over-race if pushed along in the early stages.

He said as he did not want to be taken across towards the rail, he allowed LANG TAI SING to improve its position ahead of BEAR HERO making the turn after the 900 Metres as that horse was shifting in and BEAR HERO was positioned initially to its inside.

He added rounding the Home Turn and at the entrance to the Straight he shifted BEAR HERO out to follow LANG TAI SING, however, BEAR HERO took some time to become balanced.

He said he was able to shift BEAR HERO to the outside of LANG TAI SING approaching the 300 Metres, however, BEAR HERO did not close off the race as strongly today as it did at its most recent start.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that he had been asked to ride GOLDEN DEER in about a midfield position if possible.

He said in the early stages he attempted to shift across behind I'M IN CHARGE and obtain a position with cover behind that horse, however, due to the circumstances of the race in the early stages, runners from towards the rear of the field were able to improve their positions and this resulted in JAZZY FEELING being able to obtain the position behind I'M IN CHARGE which resulted in GOLDEN DEER being obliged to race three wide and without cover for the majority of the race.

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

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

I'M IN CHARGE and TEOFILO CALVA were sent for sampling.
