Recap by phillip woo

Ocean Roar rolled to the front as expected, straightened near two lengths clear and had enough to hold off favourite Harbour Alert for an eighth career win over this trip. Harbour Alert settled in the box seat, eased into the open soon after straightening and kept grinding away to just miss. No Money No Talk was patiently ridden second from the rear, straightened three deep and finished well to grab a placing with money coming for him late. Fantastic Feeling settled one off the fence in midfield, straightened four from the right and closed off reasonably well to grab a Quartet spot in the final few strides. Sky Man kept up an even gallop following a one-out, one-back run. Top Bonus travelled one off in second from a wide gate, rounded the final bend with two wider out and was grudgingly giving ground over the final 150m. Buddy Bundy was never on the track near the speed and was gone 200m out. Triumphant Feeling didn't appear to be travelling right and gave up the chase soon after straightening following a rails run settling worse than midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (652)-SHAN PUI RIVER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

TOP BONUS shifted in at the start and bumped BUDDY BUNDY.

Shortly after the start, TRAVEL SUCCESSOR was momentarily steadied away from the heels of OCEAN ROAR which shifted in.

Approaching the 700 Metres, FANTASTIC FEELING was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SKY MAN.

Throughout the race, BUDDY BUNDY travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, G Lerena stated that after making the turn passing the 600 Metres FANTASTIC FEELING commenced to lay in.

He said he was able to shift FANTASTIC FEELING to the outside of the heels of SKY MAN after the 500 Metres and commenced to improve to the outside of that horse.

He said FANTASTIC FEELING continued to lay in and rounding the Home Turn he had the opportunity to shift to the outside of BUDDY BUNDY, however, having in mind the manner in which FANTASTIC FEELING was laying in and as the run was available between BUDDY BUNDY and SKY MAN, he elected to pursue that run rather than be awkwardly placed outside the heels of BUDDY BUNDY which had travelled wide throughout the race.

He added after improving between BUDDY BUNDY and SKY MAN, FANTASTIC FEELING momentarily had difficulty obtaining clear running between TOP BONUS and SKY MAN approaching the 200 Metres, however, was then able to improve between those runners.

He said he attempted to shift FANTASTIC FEELING to the outside of HARBOUR ALERT, however, FANTASTIC FEELING hung in under pressure and therefore he allowed the horse to shift to the inside of the heels of HARBOUR ALERT to continue improving.

He further stated that over the concluding stages FANTASTIC FEELING continued to hang in and raced tight outside SKY MAN and consequently he was not able to ride the horse out all the way to the end of the race.

When questioned, Z Purton (TRIUMPHANT JEWEL) stated that he was asked to obtain a trailing position from barrier 3 as it was anticipated that HARBOUR ALERT and particularly SKY MAN, which were drawn inside TRIUMPHANT JEWEL, would show superior early speed.

He said after shifting TRIUMPHANT JEWEL across to trail SKY MAN shortly after the start, he immediately had to commence to ride TRIUMPHANT JEWEL along as the horse was not stretching out in the early stages.

He said, despite being vigorously ridden along, TRIUMPHANT JEWEL continued to be reluctant to stride out and dipped on two occasions along the Back Straight.

He added he continued to urge TRIUMPHANT JEWEL along, however, the horse did not show any response and again dipped after the 500 Metres.

He said as he had concerns for TRIUMPHANT JEWEL, he did not ride it out in the Home Straight as the horse was well beaten at this time.

A veterinary inspection of TRIUMPHANT JEWEL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of TRIUMPHANT JEWEL, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, TRIUMPHANT JEWEL will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of TOP BONUS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

OCEAN ROAR and HARBOUR ALERT were sent for sampling.
