Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite, Smart Declaration enjoyed a lovely run in the box-seat, stayed to the fence upon straightening and got up 80m out for the win. Triumphant Jewel was ridden more quietly than usual in fourth from a wide gate, rounded the final bend five deep and finished up nicely to snatch second on the wire from the late-plunged Da Vinci. Da Vinci stayed on reasonably well three deep upon straightening after being ridden along to hold a position one-off in second from a tricky gate. Brilliant Proposal still had just over a length on the field upon straightening, but was out on his feet 100m out. Courageous Brother made some ground four deep without menacing following a one-off run with cover in midfield. He's likely better suited over the 1,200m. Late-fancied favourite Kingston Jumbo bumped Flying Force sharply close to home after making only a mild bid following a rail's run in midfield. Flying Force was poleaxed close to home when making some headway late after making his run behind midfield on the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (342)-NAKAYAMA HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

FLYING FORCE began awkwardly and lost ground.

BRILLIANT PROPOSAL shifted out at the start and bumped COURAGEOUS BROTHER.

From wide barriers, REWARDING FLYER and WICKED WINDICATOR were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, TRILLION TREASURE failed to muster speed.

When being steadied in the early stages in order to be shifted across behind runners from the outside barrier, EVERYDAY LETTUCE proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

Making the first turn after the 600 Metres, FLYING FORCE got its head up when being checked away from the heels of KINGSTON JUMBO.

ALL TOGETHER, which was following FLYING FORCE, shifted out when being checked away from the heels of that horse, resulting in REWARDING FLYER being checked when taken out across the heels of TRILLION TREASURE.

Close to the finishing line, KINGSTON JUMBO shifted out abruptly, resulting in FLYING FORCE being checked when crowded for room inside COURAGEOUS BROTHER.

As this was the second consecutive occasion that KINGSTON JUMBO had shifted out abruptly close to the winning post and also having regard to the fact that the previous occasion also involved a night racemeeting at Happy Valley, the Stewards ruled that KINGSTON JUMBO shall not be permitted to race in any night racemeetings.

Trainer W Y So was also advised that they would continue to monitor the horse's racing manners and should KINGSTON JUMBO shift ground in a similar manner in the future, consideration would be given as to its suitability to continue racing.

When questioned regarding his riding of FLYING FORCE in the Straight, C Schofield stated that he had been following KINGSTON JUMBO throughout the race and shortly after entering the Straight shifted his mount to the inside of that horse and commenced to ride FLYING FORCE along.

He said KINGSTON JUMBO commenced to shift in under pressure after the 300 Metres and he therefore shifted FLYING FORCE to the outside of that horse passing the 200 Metres.

He added he commenced to ride FLYING FORCE along to take advantage of running between KINGSTON JUMBO and COURAGEOUS BROTHER, however, FLYING FORCE raced in restricted room between those horses which both shifted ground.

He said when COURAGEOUS BROTHER was shifted out passing the 100 Metres, he commenced to ride FLYING FORCE along vigorously, however, close to the finishing line was severely checked as a result of being bumped by KINGSTON JUMBO.

C Schofield was advised that whilst the Stewards were of the opinion that he was fully entitled to the belief that KINGSTON JUMBO would shift in further approaching the 200 Metres and therefore it was reasonable for him to shift FLYING FORCE out at this time, in their opinion, he should have ridden FLYING FORCE more vigorously than he did to take advantage of tight running between KINGSTON JUMBO and COURAGEOUS BROTHER prior to that horse shifting ground over the concluding stages.

C Schofield was further advised to ensure that he rides his mounts in such a manner so as to improve into runs as they become available.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that COURAGEOUS BROTHER had sustained a small wound over the back of its right hock.
