Recap by phillip woo

Happy Journey made his move 450m out following a one-out, one-back run, hit the lead five deep at the 200m and just held off the fast-finishing The Sylph for a first win at his 24th outing. The wet going suited him. The Sylph finished with a flurry four deep after travelling second from the rear. Laughing Lord was just shaded on the wire for second following a box-seat run in a vastly-improved race with a return to a tongue-tie. Step High ran on steadily one off the fence following a midfield run along the paint to secure a Quartet spot. Newswire Free settled behind midfield along the fence after a tardy break, stayed to the inside upon straightening and finished off reasonably well in his first run at the Valley. Favourite Pearl Warm Warm yielded ground 100m out after cornering a length on top following a relatively easy time on the lead. Hang's Decision settled one off the fence with cover in midfield after a sluggish start, swung the final bend with two wider out and was grinding away without menacing. Happy Moments travelled without cover behind midfield the entire trip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (502)-HOLLY HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

After being loaded, ACE KING became fractious and reared.

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

HANG'S DECISION lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and consequently began only fairly.

NEWSWIRE FREE began only fairly and shortly after the start became unbalanced after being bumped by ACE KING which shifted in.

From a wide barrier, NEWSWIRE FREE was then shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After being ridden along in the early stages, BEST JADE TRIUMPH was steadied after the 1600 Metres to obtain a position with cover.

After being left racing wide passing the winning post on the first occasion, BEST JADE TRIUMPH was further steadied and near the 1350 Metres shifted in and bumped THE SYLPH.

Approaching the 600 Metres and again approaching the 400 Metres, NEWSWIRE FREE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of STEP HIGH.

Rounding the Home Turn, THE SYLPH was held up for clear running behind RACINGFORPLEASURE.

Near the 150 Metres, BEST JADE TRIUMPH shifted in and made contact with HAPPY MOMENTS.

Over the final 100 Metres, PACKING GO GO was unable to obtain clear running and consequently was not able to be fully tested.

In the Straight, HANG'S DECISION hung in under pressure and proved difficult to ride.

For the majority of the race, HAPPY MOMENTS travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, it was reported that PEARL WARM WARM was lame in its right front leg.

An endoscopic examination was also conducted on PEARL WARM WARM at the request of Trainer P O'Sullivan.

The Veterinary Surgeon reported that this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, PEARL WARM WARM will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

PEARL WARM WARM, HAPPY JOURNEY and THE SYLPH were sent for sampling.
