Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, Glory Horsie enjoyed a prominent run along the fence from a good gate, straightened near three deep and wore down the leader, Call Me Achiever, 60m out for a second victory this season. Call Me Achiever was ridden to lead at all costs from a wide gate, cornered a length on top and kept on gamely for second. Ambitious Glory held the fence on the back of the speed, straightened three deep and just outbobbed Whistle Blower for third. Plunged late, Whistle Blower was hard ridden to settle one off in second from a wide gate, straightened four deep and lost a placing late. Favourite Chin Chun settled fourth from the rear and one off the rails after missing the kick, swung the final bend with two wider out and made some ground without menacing. Highland Dragon was one-paced five deep in the drive following a one-off run in midfield. Cheers Victories was never a factor after travelling second from the rear. The Paladin was withdrawn after getting loose at the gates.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (609)-KAM TIN RIVER HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Metres

After being loaded, THE PALADIN became fractious and struck its head in the starting gates.

When THE PALADIN, which was riderless, was being removed from the barriers, it broke free from the starting gate handler and was unable to be recaptured.

THE PALADIN then completed a circuit of the course riderless.

Acting on veterinary advice that THE PALADIN was not suitable to race, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of the horse.

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

As the start was effected, CHIN CHUN lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently was slow to begin.

PERFECT SMART began awkwardly and then was left racing wide and without cover approaching the 600 Metres.

Near the 850 Metres, DANEWIN TIGER was momentarily crowded for room inside TRENDY WORLD which got its head on the side and shifted in.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, DANEWIN TIGER was hampered by CHEERS VICTORIES which shifted out away from the heels of TRENDY WORLD.

At the 500 Metres, GLORY HORSIE got its head up when proving very difficult to settle.

Near the 450 Metres, AMBITIOUS GLORY shifted out away from the heels of GLORY HORSIE and bumped HIGHLAND DRAGON which became unbalanced.

At the 200 Metres, CHIN CHUN shifted in and made contact with HIGHLAND DRAGON.

When questioned, T H So stated that with TRENDY WORLD coming back in distance racing over 1000 Metres and at Happy Valley for the first time, it was felt that the horse would not have sufficient speed to lead and it was hoped, from barrier 4, to obtain a position behind the speed.

He said in the early stages he shifted TRENDY WORLD across to obtain a position behind GLORY HORSIE and approaching the 900 Metres commenced to ride his mount along to maintain that position.

He said TRENDY WORLD did not show sufficient early speed to maintain its position behind GLORY HORSIE and for this reason AMBITIOUS GLORY was able to cross in front of TRENDY WORLD approaching the 800 Metres.

He added he continued to ride his mount along after this, however, TRENDY WORLD was unbalanced in its action and, despite his endeavours, was not able to maintain its position and consequently raced towards the rear of the field.

He said, despite being placed under pressure throughout the race, TRENDY WORLD did not respond to his riding and raced disappointingly.

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

After the race, W M Lai reported that he was concerned with CHEERS VICTORIES' action throughout the race and particularly on the turns.

He said CHEERS VICTORIES did not feel comfortable in its action at any stage of the race.

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

The performance of CHEERS VICTORIES, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

CHIN CHUN, GLORY HORSIE and CALL ME ACHIEVER were sent for sampling.
