Recap by phillip woo

Best-backed late, Archippus got the gaps 150m out after travelling one off the fence in midfield to swallow up Top Bonus three deep with 20m to go for a sixth career win at his 24th start despite a return to turf. Top Bonus assumed the lead 800m out, straightened near two lengths on top and found one too good in the end. Wah May Baby kept on gamely for a placing after pressing forward to park outside the leader from a tricky gate. Smart Declaration bided his time third from the rear, was short of room until pulling out five deep at the 150m and finished nicely thereafter to secure a Quartet spot. Firming favourite Mr Right settled one off in third, straightened four deep with every chance and came up one-paced over the final 100m. Brilliant Proposal eased back to travel fifth along the fence after jumping alertly, stayed near the inside upon straightening and only kept up an even gallop over the final 150m. Fortune Bo Bo made his run deep on the track fourth from the rear, had to steady from the erratically performing newcomer Bad Boy at the 500m and never let down in the run to the wire. Bad Boy shifted about trying to hold his position in midfield, lost ground coming to the 500m and finished well back. He didn't handle the course.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (469)-THE POLICE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1000Metres

BAD BOY proved difficult to load.

Before being allowed to race again, BAD BOY will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

BAD BOY and GLOBAL DOMINATION were slow to begin.

FORTUNE BO BO and WAH MAY BABY bumped on jumping.

A short distance after the start, FORTUNE BO BO shifted out and bumped WAH MAY BABY.

From the outside barriers, TRAVEL AMBASSADOR and SMART DECLARATION were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 800 Metres, BAD BOY improved to be racing close to the heels of BRILLIANT PROPOSAL (E da Silva) which was being directed out as it was being crossed by TOP BONUS.

As a consequence, BAD BOY shifted out abruptly away from the heels of that horse, resulting in MINT MASTER being hampered and taken wider.

FORTUNE BO BO, which was following MINT MASTER, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

E da Silva was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstance.

Passing the 750 Metres, MR RIGHT shifted out and bumped WAH MAY BABY.

WAH MAY BABY and MR RIGHT then raced tight for some distance.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, BRILLIANT PROPOSAL got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of MR RIGHT.

BAD BOY, which was racing outside BRILLIANT PROPOSAL and travelling keenly, was shifted out away from the heels of that horse and bumped MINT MASTER, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

ARCHIPPUS which was following BRILLIANT PROPOSAL, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse in consequence.

BAD BOY then got its head on the side and shifted out further, resulting in the horse losing ground.

FORTUNE BO BO, which was following, was shifted out abruptly away from the heels of BAD BOY.

Near the 450 Metres, BAD BOY and FORTUNE BO BO raced tight.

Shortly after entering the Straight, ARCHIPPUS momentarily raced tight between MR RIGHT and BRILLIANT PROPOSAL which, after initially being directed out, was then shifted in abruptly to avoid causing crowding to ARCHIPPUS.

In the early part of the Straight, FORTUNE BO BO hung in under pressure and proved difficult to ride.

Passing the 200 Metres, E da Silva dropped his whip.

Also passing the 200 Metres, ARCHIPPUS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of WAH MAY BABY.

SMART DECLARATION was held up for clear running from near the 150 Metres until passing the 100 Metres.

During this time, SMART DECLARATION raced tight inside WINNING KING.

Close to the finishing line, FORTUNE BO BO and GLOBAL DOMINATION raced tight.

When questioned, E da Silva stated that he had been asked to lead on BRILLIANT PROPOSAL which he was riding for the first occasion tonight, however, if the pace of the race was good in the early stages, it was acceptable for him to take a trailing position.

He said BRILLIANT PROPOSAL began well and he rode his mount along in the early stages to take up a forward position inside TOP BONUS.

He said TOP BONUS was able to obtain a forward position with relative ease and he felt that he would have had to ride BRILLIANT PROPOSAL along for some distance in the early stages to maintain its position inside TOP BONUS as that horse appeared to be travelling well.

He added therefore he elected to take a trailing position behind TOP BONUS after the 800 Metres.

He said when he allowed TOP BONUS to cross, BRILLIANT PROPOSAL shifted ground on a number of occasions.

A veterinary inspection of BAD BOY and MR RIGHT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MR RIGHT, ARCHIPPUS and TOP BONUS were sent for sampling.
