Recap by phillip woo

Drifting favourite Timely Arrived led from a middle gate, cornered a length on top and kept finding to notch a third win from his past four starts over this course and distance after a stable change. He should be able to hold his own off a light weight in a higher grade. Circuit King enjoyed a box-seat run, shifted out abruptly under pressure to bump Fabio approaching the 200m and kept on well thereafter to make it close at the finish. Sharp Hunter finished well near the inside after travelling fourth from the rear to snatch third on the wire. Confucius Spirit was posted deep without cover near the speed from a wide gate, rounded the final bend five deep and kept grinding away to just miss a placing with a tonne of money for him late. Near equal favourite Formula Galore did not lift with one wider out following a one-off run with cover travelling fore of midfield. Fabio stalked the leader one off the fence and gave way after getting badly hampered 200m out. Winning Boy made some ground without menacing after travelling fourth from the rear. Natural Team did not lift following a one off run beyond midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (341)-HANSHIN HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

WORLD CITY, Standby Declared Starter, was withdrawn on 18.1.16 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore foot).

GLORY SUNSHINE was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore).

Before being allowed to race again, WORLD CITY and GLORY SUNSHINE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SUPER GIFTED began only fairly.

FORMULA GALORE lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and shortly after the start was hampered by CIRCUIT KING which shifted out.

From the outside barrier, DUTCH WINDMILL was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, SHARP HUNTER got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover.

Making the first turn after the 1100 Metres, HAPPY CENTURY became unbalanced after being crowded for room inside NATURAL TEAM which was taken in momentarily by FORMULA GALORE which shifted in before being directed out by its rider to relieve the tightening.

When FORMULA GALORE was shifted out, WINNING BOY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse.

Entering the Back Straight near the 950 Metres, NATURAL TEAM got its head on the side and shifted out towards FORMULA GALORE.

Near the 650 Metres, FORMULA GALORE momentarily raced tight between CIRCUIT KING and CONFUCIUS SPIRIT which shifted in marginally.

HAPPY CENTURY, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

Passing the 300 Metres, FABIO shifted in and raced tight outside CIRCUIT KING.

Passing the 200 Metres, FABIO was inconvenienced when taken out by CIRCUIT KING (N Callan) which shifted out under pressure.

N Callan was advised to exercise more care.

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

When questioned, G Mosse stated that it had been intended for NATURAL TEAM to be ridden behind the lead if possible.

He said NATURAL TEAM began only fairly and then did not show as much speed in the early stages as he thought it would.

He said after momentarily racing in restricted room making the first turn, NATURAL TEAM got its head on the side and hung out after the 1000 Metres and continued to do so for the remainder of the race He added after this NATURAL TEAM did not travel well and failed to respond to his riding when placed under pressure in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of NATURAL TEAM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

TIMELY ARRIVED and CIRCUIT KING were sent for sampling.
