Recap by phillip woo

Post-time favourite Thewizardofoz was able to find cover worse than midfield from a wide gate, swung the final bend with one wider out and let down nicely to win going away 150m out in athrilling debut performance. He lived up to his work and has the pedigree to head a lot higher. Heavenisaracehorse settled second from the rear, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished well to edge early favourite Happy Agility for second. Happy Agility had to work a bit to sit outside the leader Fish N' Chips, assumed the lead 370m out and was only one-paced over the final 100m. Bernard's Choice was held up and had to switch off heels at the 150m when making a bid from near the back. She should have gone closer to placing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (582)-SOUTH CHINA SEA HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

SLEDGE HAMMER was withdrawn on 1.5.15 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter FUN TAPESTRY (Apprentice H N Wong).

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

When being saddled, CALIFORNIA CHARIOT reared over.

CALIFORNIA CHARIOT was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of CALIFORNIA CHARIOT.

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

Shortly after the start, HAPPY CENTURY was crowded for room between REGENCY DARLING which shifted in slightly and BERNARD'S CHOICE which got its head on the side and shifted out.

From wide barriers, TAKE THE CURRENT and HEAVENISARACEHORSE were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 950 Metres, HAPPY CENTURY was steadied away from the heels of WORLD CITY which shifted in after getting its head up when awkwardly placed behind MEDIC KINGDOM.

Then making the turn after the 900 Metres, HAPPY CENTURY commenced to prove difficult to settle and became unbalanced after being checked away from the heels of FUN TAPESTRY.

Approaching the 800 Metres, RUGBY DIAMOND was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 700 Metres, MEDIC KINGDOM was taken wider by REGENCY DARLING which shifted out away from the heels of FISH N' CHIPS after being awkwardly placed behind that horse.

WORLD CITY, which was following and continuing to travel keenly, was inconvenienced in consequence.

After this, REGENCY DARLING continued to prove difficult to settle and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FISH N' CHIPS for some distance.

Passing the 600 Metres, FUN TAPESTRY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of REGENCY DARLING.

WORLD CITY lost its right front and left hind plates between the 500 Metres and the 600 Metres.

For some distance approaching and passing the 200 Metres, BERNARD'S CHOICE was held up behind REGENCY DARLING and passing the 150 Metres was shifted to the outside of that horse to obtain clear running.

Then over the concluding stages, BERNARD'S CHOICE was awkwardly placed inside HEAVENISARACEHORSE which lay in under pressure.

HEAVENISARACEHORSE lost its right hind plate after the race.

When questioned, D Whyte stated that shortly after entering the Straight he became concerned with RUGBY DIAMOND's action as the horse became unbalanced and appeared to be uncoordinated.

He said the manner in which RUGBY DIAMOND was travelling at this time indicated to him that it may have bled and for this reason he eased it down over the final 300 Metres.

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

The performance of RUGBY DIAMOND, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, RUGBY DIAMOND 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, the Veterinary Officer reported that TAKE THE CURRENT was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and had bled from both nostrils.

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

A veterinary inspection of WORLD CITY immediately following the race revealed the horse to be a "roarer".
