Recap by phillip woo

Grand Harbour was pestered in the lead by Beauty King, cornered a length on top and kept on gamely for the win. Best Tango settled third from the rear, circled the field with a move five deep at the 450m, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished well to grab second at the 80m mark. Beauty King was ridden to sit second in the run and one off the rails after copping a bump soon after the break, straightened three deep and grudgingly gave way over the last 100m. Late-fancied favourite Hit A Home Run settled fourth from the rear along the rails, stayed near the inside upon straightening and got up late for a Quartet spot. Flying Chaparral settled effectively one out, one back, cornered four deep and kept plugging away to just miss fourth. Mi Savvy Boy eventually settled into a box-seat run passing the 1,000m, straightened near three deep and kept on reasonably well despite being short of room late in an improved performance. Agiaal settled last from a wide gate and made some late ground five deep. Drifting in betting as the early favourite, Noble Deluxe never ran on six deep in the drive following a one-off run behind midfield. Flying Elite was taken back from a wide gate to settle second from the rear, made his move at the 450m and peaked on his run furthest out in the drive at the 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (615)-TAN SHAN RIVER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

From the outside barrier, AGIAAL was slow to begin and shortly after the start was shifted across behind runners.

On jumping, TRENDY WIN shifted in abruptly despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in HIT A HOME RUN being crowded for room outside MI SAVVY BOY which also became badly unbalanced after being bumped by HIT A HOME RUN.

OSCAR MIRACLE shifted out at the start and bumped FLYING ELITE which became unbalanced.

After being left racing wide, FLYING ELITE was shifted across behind runners to obtain cover passing the winning post on the first occasion.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, BEAUTY KING was crowded for room inside TRENDY WIN (T H So) which shifted in before being shifted out to relieve the tightening to BEAUTY KING.

T H So was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room for runners on his inside.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, HIT A HOME RUN was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MI SAVVY BOY.

After the 1300 Metres, HIT A HOME RUN got its head on the side when racing tight inside NOBLE DELUXE.

Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, MI SAVVY BOY got its head on the side and shifted out abruptly.

Approaching the 900 Metres, NOBLE DELUXE got its head up when travelling keenly and awkwardly placed behind FLYING CHAPARRAL.

Near the 500 Metres, HIT A HOME RUN momentarily raced in restricted room inside NOBLE DELUXE which shifted in marginally when it remained awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING CHAPARRAL.

AGIAAL had difficulty obtaining clear running from shortly after straightening until near the 50 Metres.

At the 300 Metres, NOBLE DELUXE shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of GOLDLAND DANCER which became unbalanced.

For some distance after the 150 Metres, MI SAVVY BOY was awkwardly placed inside BEAUTY KING when attempting to improve between that horse and HIT A HOME RUN.

MI SAVVY BOY then continued to race in restricted room between those horses until the concluding stages at which point MI SAVVY BOY was steadied when crowded for room between BEAUTY KING and HIT A HOME RUN which shifted out marginally.

Throughout the race, OSCAR MIRACLE travelled very wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

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

The performance of OSCAR MIRACLE, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

A veterinary inspection of FLYING ELITE immediately following the race did not show any significant finding, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

HIT A HOME RUN, GRAND HARBOUR and BEST TANGO were sent for sampling.
