Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Brilliant Monkey was given a brilliant Moreira ride to find the box-seat from a wide gate, was short of room until waving his wand to get a split between runners 150m out to grab a maiden in the dying stages. Oracle was caught three deep behind midfield, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished nicely to make it close on the wire. Goldweaver worked to the front 250m out following a one-out run in midfield and was swamped in the shadows of the post. Ambitious Speedy came on nicely widest out after travelling third from the rear in his first run at this level. Great Speed had his chance following a prominent run with cover and was only one-paced over the last 150m. O'Socoole was caught three deep without cover fore of midfield until pressing forward to sit one off in second at the 850m, straightened just outside the leader Photogenic, led 250m out and was stopping 100m out. Punted late, Chans Delight only kept on evenly following a one off-run worse than midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (188)-TUNG CHUNG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Metres

FAST AND FURIOUS and ORACLE began only fairly.

EVER SHINY was crowded for room on jumping between AMBITIOUS SPEEDY and DRAGON ENERGY which shifted in.

GREAT SPEED and PARENTAL SPIRIT bumped at the start.

From a wide barrier, AMBITIOUS SPEEDY was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, PARENTAL SPIRIT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HEARTILY WINS when being shifted across behind that horse.

In the early stages, O'SOCOOLE was left racing wide and after the 1100 Metres was ridden along to obtain a more forward position closer to the rail.

After the 1100 Metres, FAST AND FURIOUS was left racing wide and without cover.

Shortly after entering the Straight, HEARTILY WINS and CHANS DELIGHT momentarily raced tight between ORACLE and GREAT SPEED which attempted to shift out away from the heels of FAST AND FURIOUS.

Passing the 300 Metres, HURRY HURRY UP, which had been experiencing difficulty in obtaining clear running, was eased away from the heels of BRILLIANT MONKEYS which shifted out momentarily before being directed back in.

BRILLIANT MONKEYS then had some difficulty obtaining clear running until near the 200 Metres.

Near the 100 Metres, CHANS DELIGHT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ORACLE which shifted in under pressure.

When questioned, N Rawiller (HURRY HURRY UP) stated that in accordance with his instructions he rode his mount along in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

He said after travelling a short distance he was able to obtain a position on the rail and when he observed FOTOGENIC being vigorously ridden along from a wide barrier after the 1300 Metres, he allowed that horse to go forward of HURRY HURRY UP in order to obtain a trailing position behind it.

He said after crossing into the lead, FOTOGENIC then travelled at a quicker tempo than he had expected and this allowed a margin to be established between FOTOGENIC and HURRY HURRY UP.

He added whilst it was available for him to ride his mount along at this stage to remain racing on the back of FOTOGENIC, given the tempo of the race at that time and that his horse was travelling comfortably, he was reluctant to ride HURRY HURRY UP along.

He said for this reason BRILLIANT MONKEYS was then able to shift in to obtain the position behind FOTOGENIC and in front of HURRY HURRY UP.

When questioned, Y T Cheng stated that after the 300 Metres he commenced riding ORACLE out with the whip and the horse immediately got its head on the side and commenced to lay in.

He said he continued to alternate between riding ORACLE with the whip and hands and heels in an endeavour to have the horse race truly.

He said then passing the 200 Metres when again hit with the whip, ORACLE shifted in and raced tight outside the hindquarters of GOLDWEAVER.

He added approaching the 100 Metres when persevering with the whip, ORACLE continued to lay in and for this reason at the 100 Metres he put the whip away and rode ORACLE vigorously hands and heels to the end of the race.

He said he did consider changing the whip over into the right hand after passing the 100 Metres, however, at this time ORACLE was racing tight outside GOLDWEAVER and therefore he did not believe that he would be able to use the whip effectively.

A veterinary inspection of FAST AND FURIOUS immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, FAST AND FURIOUS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
