Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Call Me Achiever handed up the lead to Ocean Roar 800m out, reclaimed the front 300m out and kept on strongly for a fifth career win over this trip. Specked late, Jolly Posh was posted without cover in fifth, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished well to just edge out Trendiful for second. Trendiful landed a nice spot one off in third from a wide gate, straightened four deep and kept on well for a placing. St Yazin was finishing full of run with one wider out after travelling fourth from the rear to just miss a placing. Ocean Roar assumed the lead one off at the 800m, cornered a half-length on top and was stopping 150m out. Super King Star was getting going late down the outside after travelling second from the rear. He's better suited over a longer trip on the dirt. Giddy Giddy settled fourth along the fence after a sluggish break, stayed near the inside upon straightening and came up flat over the last 200m. Kim Glory was beaten for speed and tired over the final 200m following a midfield run. Highland Dragon never ran on from behind midfield after a tardy break.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (032)-SHUN LEE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Metres

GLORY HORSIE was withdrawn on 15.9.15 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter KIM GLORY (N Callan).

Before being allowed to race again, GLORY HORSIE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GIDDY GIDDY began only fairly.

From a wide barrier, SUPER KING STAR was steadied in order to shift in across behind runners and momentarily raced in restricted room approaching the 900 Metres between THUNDER DASH and KIM GLORY which shifted out.

In the Straight, GIDDY GIDDY lay in under pressure and after the 100 Metres was shifted in away from the heels of OCEAN ROAR.

When questioned, M Chadwick stated that, from barrier 2, it had been anticipated that HIGHLAND DRAGON would have sufficient speed in the early stages to be able to trail the likely leader of the race CALL ME ACHIEVER which was drawn immediately inside HIGHLAND DRAGON.

He said after HIGHLAND DRAGON began only fairly, it was beaten for speed in the early stages despite being niggled along.

He said he rode HIGHLAND DRAGON along approaching and passing the 900 Metres, however, he was unable to prevent GIDDY GIDDY from being able to cross HIGHLAND DRAGON near the 750 Metres.

He said he continued to ride HIGHLAND DRAGON along, however, the horse did not respond to his riding and as a result KIM GLORY was able to cross in front of HIGHLAND DRAGON after the 600 Metres.

He added because of the circumstances HIGHLAND DRAGON raced much further back in the field than had been intended and then after being placed under pressure in the Straight did not finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of HIGHLAND DRAGON immediately following the race confirmed the horse to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.

When questioned regarding his riding of HAPPY HOMING approaching and passing the 100 Metres, Y T Cheng stated that approaching this stage of the race HAPPY HOMING was finishing off the race strongly.

He said immediately ahead of HAPPY HOMING was GIDDY GIDDY which at this time was shifting out slightly and he was undecided as to whether running would become available either inside or outside of GIDDY GIDDY.

He said although GIDDY GIDDY was initially some distance in front of HAPPY HOMING, at the stage when GIDDY GIDDY shifted in to present a run to the outside of that horse, HAPPY HOMING had improved to be racing just behind GIDDY GIDDY and he was of the belief that had he have continued riding at this time, he would have had to check away from the heels of GIDDY GIDDY.

He said for this reason he was obliged to cease riding HAPPY HOMING for a number of strides whilst he established whether running would present itself either to the inside or outside of GIDDY GIDDY.

Y T Cheng was advised that the Stewards accepted that HAPPY HOMING was closing off the race strongly and he had cause to momentarily stop riding.

He was also advised, wherever possible, to continue to ride his mounts out.

CALL ME ACHIEVER and JOLLY POSH were sent for sampling.
