Recap by phillip woo

Happy Rocky settled third from rear, circled the field five deep at the 500m to sit midfield coming into the final bend, poked his head in front of favourite Speedy Longwah with one wider out at the 150m and outduelled him to notch a third course-and-distance win this term. Speedy Longwah briefly hit the front at the 200m following a box-seat run and just failed to repel the winner. Superoi, who settled behind midfield and one off the rails, was shuffled back coming into the final bend widest out and nicely ran down Turbo Jewellery for a placing. Turbo Jewellery was posted without cover behind midfield, moved to fourth coming into the final bend and plugged away to hold a Quartet spot. Star Majestic was ridden for luck at the tail from a wide gate, straightened one off the fence and made some ground. The pace did not suit him. Willie Invictus settled near the back early on, rushed forward four deep without cover mid-race to settle midfield coming into the final bend and ran on steadily with three wider out. Trendy Win had no excuses following a one-out, one-back run. Ashkiyr was disappointing yet again following a rail's run around midfield despite a drop in grade. Generous Bobo faded after rolling forward from a wide gate to lead at the 1,400m in his initial run over a mile.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (578)-WARWICK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

On arrival at the Start, the tongue tie applied to TURBO JEWELLERY was refitted.

CHARLIE VICTOR was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, HAPPY ROCKY was steadied and shifted across behind runners.

From a wide barrier, WILLIE INVICTUS was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the turn after the 1100 Metres, CHARLIE VICTOR was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ASHKIYR.

SUPEROI proved difficult to settle approaching the 1100 Metres and then making the turn after the 1100 Metres shifted out abruptly away from the heels of TOP ACE, resulting in TURBO JEWELLERY being bumped and taken wider.

After this, SUPEROI continued to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up when being checked away from the heels of TOP ACE passing the 1000 Metres, WILLIE INVICTUS, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

TURBO JEWELLERY subsequently raced wide and without cover.

After the 900 Metres, WILLIE INVICTUS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SUPEROI which continued to over-race.

After the 700 Metres, WILLIE INVICTUS and SUPEROI raced tight and bumped on a number of occasions due to SUPEROI shifting out when over-racing.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, SUPEROI was severely checked and lost ground after shifting out across the heels of WILLIE INVICTUS.

HAPPY ROCKY, which was following, was hampered in consequence and taken wider.

The racing manners of SUPEROI were considered unacceptable.

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

Approaching the 400 Metres, SUPEROI was momentarily crowded for room between HAPPY ROCKY and TOP ACE which, after improving into tight running outside TRENDY WIN, was then taken out by that horse which shifted marginally.

At the entrance to the Straight, OVETT got its head on the side, shifted out and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of TURBO JEWELLERY.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that he had not been given any specific instructions on how to ride STAR MAJESTIC from barrier 9, however, it was anticipated that the horse would obtain a position in midfield or slightly behind midfield.

He said in the early stages he was left racing wide and therefore he steadied his mount approaching the winning post on the first occasion to obtain a position closer to the rail with cover.

He said this resulted in STAR MAJESTIC having to race at the rear of the field.

He said passing the 600 Metres HAPPY ROCKY, which was racing to his outside, was shifted out and commenced to sustain a long run around the field.

He said as that horse was lightly weighted and STAR MAJESTIC was carrying top weight, he did not feel that it would be in the best interests of STAR MAJESTIC were he to shift out and attempt to follow that horse.

He said therefore he elected to pursue inside runs.

He said he was able to continue to improve his position without being held up rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight STAR MAJESTIC finished well after having to race in a position further back in the field than had been hoped.

HAPPY ROCKY and SPEEDY LONGWAH were sent for sampling.
