Recap by phillip woo

Lucky Girl went forward four deep from a tricky gate to find the rail on the lead 1,150m out, swung the final bend a length on top and kept finding to just hold Happy Contender for the win. Happy Contender settled one-out, one-back after jumping well, eased out three deep coming to the final bend and closed the gap five deep with each stride to just miss. Savvy Nature ran on well near the inside following a rails run in midfield to finish a clear third. Ashkiyr finished well with two wider out after travelling four deep second from the rear to fill a Quartet spot. Vanilla came from last and widest out to pick up a pay cheque. Easy Hedge made only a mild bid with three wider out after a deep run with cover travelling behind midfield as the favourite. He needed the outing following a break. Cloud Nine made some progress after travelling fourth from the rear following a slow break. Andoyas was only one-paced over the final 150m when popped the question following a one-off run worse than midfield. Full Glory made only mild bid two from the right after travelling third from the rear. Beauty Love was retreating 250m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eleven: (716)-ORCHID HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Metres

LUCKY GIRL began only fairly.

ASHKIYR was bumped shortly after the start by CLOUD NINE which was taken out by BEAUTY LOVE.

After being ridden along in the early stages, EASY HEDGE was steadied shortly after the start when HAPPY CONTENDER (C Schofield) shifted in.

A short distance later, YOU HAVE MY WORLD, FULL GLORY and MIDNITE PROMISE were all crowded for room inside HAPPY CONTENDER which shifted in before being directed out to relieve the tightening.

C Schofield was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he leaves his fellow riders comfortable racing room wherever circumstances permit.

Approaching the 1400 Metres, YOU HAVE MY WORD was momentarily steadied away from the heels of HAPPY CONTENDER.

Passing the 1100 Metres, ANDOYAS was momentarily crowded for room inside YOU HAVE MY WORLD which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of MIDNITE PROMISE which, after initially shifting in of its own accord, then raced tight inside the heels of LUCKY GIRL as that horse improved into the lead.

Near the 900 Metres,, YOU HAVE MY WORD was left racing wide and without cover.

Rounding the Home Turn, MIDNITE PROMISE raced tight between HAPPY CONTENDER and BEAUTY LOVE which shifted out to obtain clear running.

Approaching the 100 Metres, SAVVY NATURE got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of HAPPY CONTENDER which shifted in marginally under pressure.

The performances of YOU HAVE MY WORD and MIDNITE PROMISE, which finished tailed out, were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, YOU HAVE MY WORD and MIDNITE PROMISE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned, K C Ng stated that he was asked to ride FULL GLORY quietly in the early stages to ensure that the horse settled as it had performed well when ridden in this manner at its last start.

He said after being crowded for room shortly after the start FULL GLORY then travelled keenly and would not relax as he had hoped and raced disappointingly.

He added whilst the horse may not have been suited by today's track conditions and, bearing in mind that it had been successful on "Good to Firm" track at its last start, he believed that FULL GLORY travelling keenly in the early and middle stages had also had a bearing on the horse's performance.

A veterinary inspection of FULL GLORY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, C Y Ho was unable to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of BEAUTY LOVE.

He said the horse travelled satisfactorily, however, did not respond to his riding in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of BEAUTY LOVE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Also after the race, K Teetan (EASY HEDGE) stated that he had been asked to ride the horse in a midfield position with cover.

He said after being able to obtain this position in the early stages, EASY HEDGE travelled well, however, when shifted to the outside in the Straight, did not close off the race as he expected it would.

He said whilst EASY HEDGE had previously performed satisfactorily on a rain affected track, he felt today's disappointing performance could be attributed to a combination of the horse being first up since February and the track conditions which may have had an effect on the horse's ability to close off.

A veterinary inspection of EASY HEDGE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of MIDNITE PROMISE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

EASY HEDGE, LUCKY GIRL and HAPPY CONTENDER were sent for sampling.

GENERAL: 1.

After the running of Race 5, the track classification was officially changed from "Yielding" to "Good to Yielding".

This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective.

As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 5 being run on a track rated "Good to Yielding".
