Recap by phillip woo

Specked late, Robust Momentum settled just worse than midfield 800m out, swung the final bend with two wider out and ran down Star Of Wai Bo 30m out for the win despite a mile preference. Star Of Wai Bo found the front 1,050m out, cornered near two lengths on top and went down fighting. Happy Champion angled off the fence into the open three from the right at the 200m and finished well to get up 50m out for a placing. Popping Candy switched out five deep at the 250m following a handy run along the fence and just wore down Rocket Let Win for a Quartet spot. Rocket Let Win knocked up 100m out with every chance following a one-out, one-back run. Jolly Posh stalked the leader from a wide gate and was gone 180m out. Odds-on favourite Massive Move was under the pump coming to the final bend following a box-seat run and was struggling 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (015)-REPULSE BAY HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

ALL TIMES LUCKY, KING WINSA and SKY FULL OF STARS were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 150 Metres, JOLLY POSH was awkwardly placed inside the heels of ROCKET LET WIN which got its head on the side and shifted in.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of MASSIVE MOVE, D Whyte stated that his mount began only fairly, however, was able to obtain a forward position in the early stages without having to be ridden along.

He said making the first turn MASSIVE MOVE raced in restricted room inside ROCKET LET WIN and he had to ride his mount along to ensure that it maintained its position inside that horse.

He said MASSIVE MOVE subsequently travelled satisfactorily, however, again momentarily raced in restricted room making the turn after the 600 Metres when JOLLY POSH lay in.

He said after this MASSIVE MOVE came off the bridle and he had to ride the horse aggressively prior to the 400 Metres in an attempt to improve its position.

He added, despite being ridden out, MASSIVE MOVE did not respond and was very disappointing in the manner in which it weakened in the Straight.

He said MASSIVE MOVE appeared to be reluctant to fully stretch out after racing tight inside runners at various stages of the race.

Mr R Gibson, trainer of MASSIVE MOVE, stated that he was disappointed in MASSIVE MOVE's performance as the horse had trialed well in the lead up to tonight's race when ridden by D Whyte.

He said following advice from D Whyte that the horse did not appreciate racing tight on the rail inside other runners, he would give consideration to altering the horse's gear in the future.

A veterinary inspection of MASSIVE MOVE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of MASSIVE MOVE, a favourite for tonight's race, was considered unacceptable.

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

MASSIVE MOVE, ROBUST MOMENTUM and STAR OF WAI BO were sent for sampling.
