Recap by phillip woo

Both Lucky was ridden quietly behind midfield and one off the fence from a wide gate, swung the final bend widest out and let down willingly to mow down Harbour Alert close to home for the win. Plunged late, Harbour Alert crossed to the lead 1,000m out from a wide gate, wheeled in near two lengths on top and grudgingly gave way despite a rise in trip with the addition of the hood. Mr Ginger kept on reasonably well for a placing following a box-seat run. Majestic Falcon rallied nicely four deep after travelling third from the rear in a pleasing run over an unsuitable trip for his new trainer. Wah May Baby went forward from a wide gate to sit one off in second, swung the final bend five deep and kept plugging away to just miss a Quartet spot. Lucky Hammer made a minor bid after travelling behind midfield along the rails. Excel Oneself came up one-paced four from the right over the final 200m following a prominent run with cover. Joy Luck Win never fired a shot following a one-off run worse than midfield as the raging favourite.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (127)-PYRAMID HILL HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

FORGIVE AND FORGET was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain a position closer to the rail with cover.

Making the turn after the 1000 Metres, EXCEL ONESELF was awkwardly placed inside the heels of HARBOUR ALERT (R Fourie).

R Fourie was advised to exercise more care.

Near the 800 Metres, FOREVER RED was left racing wide and without cover.

After the 800 Metres, EXCEL ONESELF raced tight inside WAH MAY BABY which shifted in before being directed out to improve its position forward of EXCEL ONESELF.

Passing the 200 Metres, MAJESTIC ANTHEM, which was commencing to close off the race strongly, was hampered when obliged to shift in away from the heels of JOY LUCK WIN which got its head on the side and shifted in away from FOREVER RED when under pressure.

Also passing the 200 Metres, EXCEL ONESELF was shifted out away from the heels of WAH MAY BABY which shifted out away from HARBOUR ALERT.

Apprentice H N Wong (EXCEL ONESELF) dropped his whip at the 150 Metres.

Near the 50 Metres, EXCEL ONESELF was awkwardly placed outside the heels of WAH MAY BABY.

When questioned regarding the performance of JOY LUCK WIN, D Whyte stated that when commencing to trot off after entering the track from the Parade Ring, JOY LUCK WIN coughed on several occasions.

He said after checking to see whether the horse may have got its tongue over the bit, he then proceeded to again canter JOY LUCK WIN to the Start and the horse did not make any more abnormal breathing noises.

He said on arrival at the Start he brought this matter to the attention of the Veterinary Officer who confirmed that the horse did not have its tongue over the bit.

After the necessary consultations, JOY LUCK WIN was considered suitable to race.

D Whyte stated that after being able to obtain a good position on JOY LUCK WIN in the early and middle stages, his mount came under heavy pressure prior to the 500 Metres to maintain its position between runners.

He said despite being ridden along at this stage, JOY LUCK WIN did not respond and he had to ride it aggressively rounding the Home Turn as it was not improving its position.

He added he placed the horse under further pressure in the early part of the Straight and, when under pressure, JOY LUCK WIN shifted ground on a number of occasions and felt unbalanced in its action.

He said as he had concerns with the manner in which JOY LUCK WIN was shifting ground, he eased it down over the final 100 Metres, however, JOY LUCK WIN was well beaten at this time.

He said on return to the unsaddling area after the race, JOY LUCK WIN continued to be awkward in its action.

A veterinary inspection of JOY LUCK WIN immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in the horse's trachea.

The performance of JOY LUCK WIN, a favourite for tonight's race, was considered unacceptable.

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

JOY LUCK WIN, BOTH LUCKY and HARBOUR ALERT were sent for sampling.
