Recap by phillip woo

Helen's Choice eventually got in with cover one off in fourth from a wide gate at the 550m, straightened five deep and quickened well off a feather weight to run down Travel Comforts in the shadow of the post for the win. Travel Comforts was uncontested on the lead, cornered two lengths on top and went down fighting in a pleasing first run on the surface. Hurricane Kid settled one off the fence worse than midfield, swung the final bend with three wider out and finished well to grab a placing. Easy Success made some ground late near the inside after travelling third from the rear. Favourite Winning Vibe ran on steadily without menacing after travelling very deep on the track without cover the entire trip from a wide gate behind midfield. It was a big run in defeat and he'll be winning shortly. Dr Race did have his chance following a prominent run near the inside. St Yazin was held up early straight after travelling fourth from the back and made only a mild bid with clear running over the last 150m. I'm The Won For U was hard ridden to stay in touch three deep in a handy spot and was gone 200m out. My Legend was never involved after missing the kick.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (435)-CITIGOLD PRIVATE CLIENT HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

MY LEGEND began only fairly, shifted out at the start and became unbalanced after bumping the hindquarters of ST YAZIN, resulting in MY LEGEND losing ground.

Then despite being ridden along, MY LEGEND failed to muster speed.

DR RACE began only fairly.

ST YAZIN was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Passing the 900 Metres and again making the turn after the 700 Metres, HURRICANE KID was awkwardly placed close to the heels of I'M THE WON FOR U.

Making the first turn near the 700 Metres, HAPPY SOUND got its head on the side and was steadied away from the heels of HELEN'S CHOICE (Apprentice K K Chiong) which shifted in when not quite clear.

Apprentice Chiong was advised to ensure that she is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

WINNING VIBE, which was following HAPPY SOUND, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence and forced wider.

Near the 500 Metres, HAPPY SOUND momentarily raced in restricted room between WINNING VIBE and ST YAZIN which shifted out marginally.

At the entrance to the Straight, ST YAZIN raced in restricted room between WINNING VIBE and HURRICANE KID which, when shifting to the outside of HELEN'S CHOICE, was taken out slightly by that horse.

Both EASY SUCCESS and WINNING VIBE lay out under pressure in the Straight.

When questioned, C Soumillon (WINNING VIBE) stated that it was anticipated today's race would be run at a faster tempo than that of its first race start.

He said he was asked to have WINNING VIBE travelling where it was comfortable and it was hoped that this would be in about a midfield position with cover.

He said he was able to obtain a trailing position behind HAPPY SOUND approaching the first turn, but after being steadied away from the heels of that horse, WINNING VIBE was then left racing wide and without cover for the remainder of the race and further back in the race than had been hoped.

Throughout the race, HELEN'S CHOICE travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, G Lerena reported that DR RACE got its tongue over the bit during the race.

A veterinary inspection of I'M THE WON FOR U immediately following the race found the horse to have sustained a small cut to the inside of the left front cannon.

A veterinary inspection of MY LEGEND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
