Recap by phillip woo

Five Up High erased some weak form this season when coming on strongly widest out with a move 450m to run down Forever Red 60m out to land a betting plunge. Forever Red got in the one-off spot in second from a wide gate, rushed to the front four deep at the 200m and found one too good in the end. Favourite Happy Life closed off steadily with one wider out from behind midfield to fill a placing. Specked late, Trendy Win was held up fourth from the rear until angling off heels for a clear run with three wider out at the 250m and finished nicely thereafter to fill a Quartet spot. Golden Chopsticks ran on without menacing widest out after making his run at the back of the field. Timely Arrived weakened 100m out after setting a genuine pace. Pearl Warm Warm made only a mild bid five deep following a rails run travelling worse than midfield in his first run at this level. Rainbow Fighter had every chance following a box-seat run. All Great Friends was cast deep without cover in a handy spot and was stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report


On arrival at the Start, it was noted that CHOICE TREASURE had lost its left front plate.

After this plate was refitted, CHOICE TREASURE was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

ALL GREAT FRIENDS began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS and BOTH LUCKY were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

After the 700 Metres, ALL GREAT FRIENDS was left racing wide and without cover.

For some distance after the 700 Metres, LUCKY CELEBRITY, which was travelling keenly, was steadied away from the heels of FOREVER RED (Apprentice K K Chiong) which shifted in when not properly clear.

In this incident, LUCKY CELEBRITY shifted in, resulting in RAINBOW FIGHTER being crowded for room.

Apprentice Chiong was severely reprimanded and advised that she had been spoken to on a number of occasions this season regarding shifting in when under the required clearance.

She was told she must ensure that she is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

When questioned regarding his riding of BOTH LUCKY, particularly after the 800 Metres, O Doleuze stated that from a wide barrier he had been instructed to shift his mount across behind runners, obtain a position on the rail and take advantage of inside runs in the Straight wherever possible.

He said in accordance with his instructions he shifted BOTH LUCKY across behind runners and near the 850 Metres shifted away from the rail towards the outside of the heels of TRENDY WIN as that horse was being hard ridden.

He said whilst there was an opportunity to continue to improve outside TRENDY WIN, as he was instructed to obtain inside runs in the Straight, he felt that it was a better option for him to shift back in and race behind TRENDY WIN.

He said he continued to follow that horse rounding the Home Turn and at the entrance to the Straight immediately shifted his mount to the inside of runners and when able to obtain clear running in the Straight, he was able to fully test BOTH LUCKY.

Trainer C Fownes confirmed the instructions given to Jockey Doleuze and stated, after viewing the videos, that it would be acceptable to him for Jockey Doleuze to continue to improve on BOTH LUCKY and obtain a more forward position after the 800 Metres.

O Doleuze was advised that his riding of BOTH LUCKY from after the 800 Metres had come under notice and that, regardless of his instructions, he should have shown more judgement than he did on this occasion by improving to the outside of TRENDY WIN which would have afforded BOTH LUCKY the opportunity to follow HAPPY LIFE, the race favourite, in the middle stages.

He was advised to ensure that he shows initiative in races in order to take advantage of opportunities to improve his position so as to afford his mounts full opportunity to win or to obtain the best possible placing.

HAPPY LIFE, FIVE UP HIGH and FOREVER RED were sent for sampling.
