Recap by phillip woo

Haymaker settled one off the fence in midfield, rounded the final bend with three wider out, swept to the front 80m out and just held off the late surge of Hang's Decision for a maiden win at his eighth start. Hang's Decision settled second from the rear after jumping awkwardly, pushed into the open with two wider out at the 250m and finished nicely to make it close on the wire. He's caught the eye in his past two starts and will be winning shortly. Step Faster travelled deep without cover fore of midfield, poked his head in front five deep at the 150m and grudgingly gave way. Formula Galore handed up the lead to Supreme Flight after crossing the fence at the 800m, briefly reclaimed the lead at the 200m and was stopping inside the 100m. Plunged late, Supreme Flight worked to the lead 850m out, cornered a length on top and was on his tippy toes passing the 150m. Sharp Hunter failed to lift following a one-out, one-back run. World City made some ground with one wider out after travelling fourth from the rear. Favourite Kynam failed to respond after a prominent run along the fence following an alert break.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (236)-FRANCE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

On jumping, HANG'S DECISION bounded in the air and landed heavily, resulting in its rider, B Prebble, becoming unbalanced.

From a wide barrier, SUPER GIFTED was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1150 Metres, SHARP HUNTER got it head up when being steadied to allow FORMULA GALORE to cross.

Approaching and passing the 1000 Metres, WORLD CITY travelled keenly.

After the 800 Metres, STEP FASTER was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, SGT ROCK momentarily raced in restricted room inside HAYMAKER which was taken in by STEP FASTER which shifted in marginally.

Over the concluding stages, SUPREME FLIGHT raced in restricted room inside FORMULA GALORE.

The Stewards deferred the declaration of weighed-in as they were of the prima facie view that an incident occurred inside the final 50 Metres which cast sufficient doubt on whether HAYMAKER should be declared the winner of the race.

B Prebble, the rider of second placed, HANG'S DECISION, viewed the video of the incident before deciding not to lodge a formal protest/objection.

As the Stewards could not be comfortably satisfied, although HANG'S DECISION was bumped by HAYMAKER which shifted out after initially shifting in and brushing STEP FASTER near the 40 Metres, having regard to the neck margin between those horses at the end of the race, they decided it was not appropriate to proceed to a formal protest/objection hearing.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on MR KOOL at the request of Trainer A S Cruz.

The Veterinary Surgeon reported that this examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in the horse's trachea.

KYNAM lost its left hind plate after the race.

A veterinary inspection of KYNAM immediately following the race revealed the horse to have bled from both nostrils.

KYNAM, HAYMAKER and HANG'S DECISION were sent for sampling.
