Recap by phillip woo

Rapid Triumph was patiently ridden third from the rear, stayed near the inside upon straightening and quickened nicely to get up 30m out for an upset win despite money coming for him late. Another well-punted runner Rock The Tree finished willingly widest out after travelling second from rear to make it close on the wire. Giant Turtle defied a deep run without cover ahead of midfield the entire trip to place at cricket score odds. Business As Usual was headed by Noble De Man 200m out after bringing them into the straight a half-length on top, reclaimed the front 100m out and was swamped in the final 30m. Nobel De Man pressed forward three deep from an awkward gate to eventually settle one off in second, briefly hit the front 200m out and was stopping 50m out. Spinning Dancer made some late ground after travelling fourth from the rear. Punted late, Danewin Express had every chance after sitting on the back of the speed with cover. He had no excuses. Favourite Newswire Free moved erratically when asked for an effort four deep upon straightening following a midfield run. Hit A Home Run disappointed following a handy run along the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (654)-KAM TIN RIVER HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

PENNY LANE began only fairly and shortly after the start was steadied when crowded for room between NOBLE DE MAN and GIANT TURTLE which shifted in.

HIT A HOME RUN began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, JAEGER BOMB was steadied and shifted across behind runners shortly after the start.

Also shortly after the start, CIRCUIT FORTUNE raced in restricted room between RAPID TRIUMPH and NOBLE DE MAN and was then steadied and shifted across to obtain a position with cover.

Near the 1350 Metres, JAEGER BOMB became badly unbalanced when being ridden along and improving into tight running inside SPINNING DANCER.

After the 1350 Metres, RAPID TRIUMPH momentarily raced tight inside the heels of PENNY LANE.

When being steadied to allow NOBLE DE MAN to cross after the 1200 Metres, DANEWIN EXPRESS travelled keenly and got its head up on a number of occasions.

Near the 1000 Metres, GIANT TURTLE was left racing wide and without cover.

Shortly after entering the Straight, DANEWIN EXPRESS was shifted to the inside of BUSINESS AS USUAL after being disappointed for running between that horse and NOBLE DE MAN.

RAPID TRIUMPH lost its right front plate near the 150 Metres.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of NEWSWIRE FREE, J Moreira stated that he had to ride the horse along for some distance in the run to the winning post on the first occasion to obtain a good position.

He said after steadying his mount passing the winning post on the first occasion to allow DANEWIN EXPRESS to cross, NEWSWIRE FREE travelled keenly and then near the 1000 Metres became unbalanced and lay in.

He said after this he was able to have NEWSWIRE FREE balanced and the horse then travelled fairly in the middle stages.

He added NEWSWIRE FREE came under heavy pressure after the 500 Metres and, despite being vigorously ridden along, did not quicken.

He said then in the Straight NEWSWIRE FREE lay in quite badly and proved difficult to ride and after the 100 Metres was shifted out abruptly away from the heels of DANEWIN EXPRESS.

He said whilst NEWSWIRE FREE was inclined to lay in last start when the horse raced well, on that occasion NEWSWIRE FREE travelled on the rail and was not required to go around horses.

He said this was in contrast to tonight where the horse was required to race away from the rail and outside of runners.

Nonetheless he said NEWSWIRE FREE was disappointing in its failure to respond to his riding in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of NEWSWIRE FREE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of DANEWIN EXPRESS and HIT A HOME RUN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

NEWSWIRE FREE, RAPID TRIUMPH and ROCK THE TREE were sent for sampling.
