Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late, Happy Spirit pressed forward along the fence to lead leaving the first bend, cornered near two lengths on top and kept on gamely for a second win from his past three starts. Axiom was prominently ridden along the paint, peeled three deep upon straightening and finished well to fill the Quinella spot. Speedy Wally closed off reasonably well near the inside following a rail's run in midfield for a placing. Baltic Warrior found the fence beyond midfield from a wide gate, angled into the open with two wider out at the 150m and closed off well to edge favourite Graceful Kingdom for a Quartet spot. Graceful Kingdom handed up the lead to settle one off in second, rounded the final bend five deep and came up one-paced over the final 150m in a disappointing performance. Dual Happy was left deep without cover in midfield and made some ground late down the outside. Both Go-Gettevr and Sharp Hunter were badly hampered travelling behind Addole, who broke down 800m out, and never involved thereafter.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (411)-SAI KUNG HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Metres

TELEPHATIA was slow to begin.

SPEEDY WALLY shifted out and bumped GO SANDY GO shortly after the start.

GO SANDY GO was then steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain a position with cover.

From wide barriers, BALTIC WARRIOR and SHARP HUNTER were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, DUAL HAPPY failed to muster speed.

Near the 1100 Metres, TELEPHATIA was shifted out and allowed to improve its position around the field.

Near the 900 Metres, ADDOLE broke down in its right front leg, resulting in GO-GETTER and SHARP HUNTER, which were following ADDOLE, being severely checked and losing a significant amount of ground.

In this incident, GO SANDY GO was also inconvenienced.

After this, GO-GETTER and SHARP HUNTER were eased out of the race.

GO SANDY GO lost its right front plate near the 600 Metres.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, HAPPY SPIRIT and TELEPHATIA came into contact.

Also making the turn after the 600 Metres, AXIOM raced tight inside GRACEFUL KINGDOM which got its head on the side and lay in.

Passing the 500 Metres, SPEEDY WALLY and BUSINESS AS USUAL raced tight as SPEEDY WALLY attempted to shift out and improve between AXIOM and BUSINESS AS USUAL.

In the early part of the Straight, SPEEDY WALLY raced with its head on the side and then was held up for clear running approaching the 200 Metres and again briefly passing the 150 Metres.

Also in the early part of the Straight, BALTIC WARRIOR was inclined to lay in.

BALTIC WARRIOR was then held up for clear running from the 200 Metres until approaching the 100 Metres at which time the horse shifted out and brushed BUSINESS AS USUAL.

A veterinary inspection of SHARP HUNTER and GO-GETTER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GRACEFUL KINGDOM, HAPPY SPIRIT and AXIOM were sent for sampling.
