Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Born In China jumped well to travel in the box-seat behind the leader Brilliant Proposal, advanced to the front 230m out and drew clear for a first win at his fourth start. He remains one to follow this term. Late-plunged favourite Divine Boy finished nicely four deep after travelling worse than midfield and one off the rails with cover to grab second 50m out. Who'sthedude saved ground in midfield, swung the final bend three deep under the pump, worked to second 150m out and kept on well for a placing. Golden Chopsticks travelled third from the rear along the fence, straightened four deep, switched into the open with three wider out at the 250m and closed off well to secure a Quartet spot. Romantic Cash was posted deep without cover ahead of midfield, turned the final bend with two wider out and ran on steadily to pick up a pay slip. Ruby Coast made some ground without menacing near the inside after travelling last following a slow break. Sight Seeing only plodded after straight six deep following a deep run with cover beyond midfield in his Valley debut. Brilliant Proposal stopped badly 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (054)-BEGONIA HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

RUBY COAST began only fairly and then despite being ridden along failed to muster speed.

BORN IN CHINA and DIVINE BOY bumped on jumping.

From wide barriers, GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS and SMART DECLARATION were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, WAH MAY BABY failed to muster speed and consequently raced back in the field.

For some distance approaching and passing the 700 Metres, DIVINE BOY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BANGALORE.

Near the 550 Metres, RUBY COAST was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS.

GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Passing the 300 Metres, DIVINE BOY raced tight between WHO'STHEDUDE and FIVE UP HIGH.

Approaching the 100 Metres, C Y Ho (BANGALORE) dropped his left rein.

Throughout the race, ROMANTIC CASH travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SIGHT SEEING, B Prebble stated that the horse was having its first race start at Happy Valley after not having trialed at the track.

He said after riding his mount along in the early stages, he shifted SIGHT SEEING in making the turn after the 1100 Metres to obtain cover as FIVE UP HIGH was being vigorously ridden to his inside to maintain its position.

He said making the first turn he was left racing in a three wide position outside DIVINE BOY, however, SIGHT SEEING at all times had cover and travelled well in the early and middle stages.

He said when following ROMANTIC CASH, SIGHT SEEING was awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse approaching the 500 Metre and after this came off the bridle.

He added, despite being placed under pressure in the Straight, SIGHT SEEING was disappointing in its failure to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of SIGHT SEEING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on FIVE UP HIGH at the request of Trainer A T Millard.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, FIVE UP HIGH will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

BORN IN CHINA and DIVINE BOY were sent for sampling.
