Recap by phillip woo

Choice Treasure settled behind midfield along the fence, straightened three deep and got up in the final bend few strides to run down Startling Power for a win with late-market support. Startling Power rolled forward from a wide gate to park outside Namjong Blossoms for the lead, advanced to the front 600m out, straightened two lengths on top and only found one too good after shaking off a challenge from favourite Sea Ruby at the 200m. Sea Ruby had his chance following a box-seat run. Hit The Bid finished well with one wider out after straightening third from the rear to run down Silly Buddies for a Quartet spot. Silly Buddies finished up reasonably well near the inside after going back from a wide gate. Bossiee was handy in the run along the fence, came off the fence coming to the final bend and was only one-paced over the final 200m in his initial run on the dirt. Kingston Jumbo got shuffled back to a position behind midfield at the 750m, straightened four deep and made a mild bid.Hidden Value faced the breeze four deep from the outset in midfield and was giving ground 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eleven: (757)-LAI CHI CHONG HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

HIT THE BID shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of HIDDEN VALUE which became unbalanced.

EXPEDITE was crowded for room on jumping between SILLY BUDDIES and STARTLING POWER which shifted out.

After this, from wide barriers, both EXPEDITE and SILLY BUDDIES were shifted across behind runners.

Shortly after the start, NAMJONG BLOSSOMS and ALL IS WELL bumped.

Near the 900 Metres, SEA RUBY and REAL FIT raced tight, resulting in REAL FIT becoming unbalanced passing the 900 Metres.

Making the turn after the 700 Metres, KINGSTON JUMBO lost ground when crowded for room between REAL FIT (M Chadwick) which lay in and BOSSIEE which shifted out.

M Chadwick was advised to ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room for runners to his inside in similar circumstances.

Near the 450 Metres, NAMJONG BLOSSOMS became unbalanced when brushed by SEA RUBY.

B Prebble (KINGSTON JUMBO) was fined $5,000 for improper use of the whip in that he raised weal marks over the horse's right flank.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into consideration that B Prebble had previously been penalized for a like offence.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that despite being vigorously ridden in the early stages, HIDDEN VALUE did not show any early speed as it had done in its races when ridden by him previously.

He said HIDDEN VALUE did not stretch out well in the early stages and despite being continually ridden along was not able to obtain a forward position as had been hoped.

He said when travelling wide and without cover throughout the race, HIDDEN VALUE continued to be reluctant to stretch out and rounding the Home Turn shortened stride.

He said because of the manner in which HIDDEN VALUE was travelling, he was reluctant to fully test the horse in the Straight.

He added after the race, in his opinion, HIDDEN VALUE appeared to trot back short in its action in front.

A veterinary inspection of HIDDEN VALUE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Before being allowed to race again, HIDDEN VALUE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of NAMJONG BLOSSOMS immediately following the race revealed the horse to be displaying signs of heat stress.

The performance of NAMJONG BLOSSOMS, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, NAMJONG BLOSSOMS 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 REAL FIT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of REAL FIT, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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