Recap by phillip woo

Confucius Spirit was prominently ridden deep without cover from a tricky gate, responded nicely to hit the front four deep at the 150m and edged clear despite drifting in under the whip to score a first win at his 16th start. Hurry Hurry Up led under the whip from a wide gate, cornered a length on top and grudgingly gave way. Plunged late, Novel Start settled one off in second, rounded the final bend three deep and stayed on well to make it close for second. Danewin Tiger settled three deep with cover worse than midfield, rounded the final bend five deep and ran on steadily to fill a Quartet spot. Lucky Profit stayed on all right after a four-deep run without cover fore of midfield in his first run on the dirt. Crimson Heart made some ground with two wider out after travelling three deep with cover beyond midfield. Be There Ahead had all in front of him rounding the final bend widest and made some ground without menacing. Favourite Good View Delights had every chance following a handy run with cover.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (152)-KOSE COSMEPORT HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

NOVEL START blundered on jumping.

CRIMSON HEART began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped CONFUCIUS SPIRIT which became unbalanced.

Near the 1100 Metres, DANEWIN TIGER was awkwardly placed inside the heels of NOVEL START which got its head on the side and shifted in away from HURRY HURRY UP.

Making the first turn near the 700 Metres, GOOD VIEW DELIGHTS became unbalanced when crowded for room between MIGHTY GAINS which initially shifted out slightly and CONFUCIUS SPIRIT which got its head on the side and lay in towards the heels of NOVEL START.

When GOOD VIEW DELIGHTS became unbalanced, it shifted in, resulting in MIGHTY GAINS also being crowded for room.

DANEWIN TIGER, which was following, was inconvenienced in consequence.

As there was no rider error associated with this incident, no further action was taken.

Passing the 600 Metres, DRAGON ENERGY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MIGHTY GAINS.

Near the 550 Metres, HEARTILY WINS raced in restricted room between DANEWIN TIGER and DRAGON ENERGY.

Throughout the race, LUCKY PROFIT and CONFUCIUS SPIRIT travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of GOOD VIEW DELIGHTS, Z Purton stated that the horse, which was having its first start on the All Weather Track, began well and he was able to take up a good position.

He said GOOD VIEW DELIGHTS travelled well in the early and middle stages and, despite being momentarily crowded for room making the turn near the 700 Metres, continued to travel well in the run up to the Home Turn.

He added given the manner in which the horse had travelled throughout the race, he expected it to finish off well, however, after being place under pressure prior to the 400 Metres, GOOD VIEW DELIGHTS then was disappointing in its failure to close off.

A veterinary inspection of GOOD VIEW DELIGHTS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of MIGHTY GAINS, Apprentice H N Wong stated that in accordance with his instructions he rode his mount along in the early stages to take up a forward position.

He said when he observed that HURRY HURRY UP was being aggressively ridden from a wide barrier to also take up the lead, he rode his mount along more vigorously after the 900 Metres in an attempt to prevent that horse from crossing, however, MIGHTY GAINS did not show as much speed as HURRY HURRY UP and consequently near the 800 Metres he was left with no alternative but to allow that horse to cross MIGHTY GAINS.

He said as soon as HURRY HURRY UP crossed MIGHTY GAINS, his mount got its head on the side and was inclined to lay out away from the rail which contributed to the horse becoming unbalanced making the first turn.

He added that after this MIGHTY GAINS did not travel comfortably and, in his opinion, appeared to resent the kickback and lost confidence after being crossed by HURRY HURRY UP.

A veterinary inspection of MIGHTY GAINS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of MIGHTY GAINS, a last start winner on the track and distance, was considered unacceptable.

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

A veterinary inspection of BE THERE AHEAD immediately following the race found that horse to have sustained a minor cut to the right hind pastern.
