Recap by phillip woo

Punted late Precious Gem quickened nicely five deep after travelling one off the fence fore of midfield to get up 80m out for a first win at his 17th start. Mr Vanilla settled one off the fence in midfield, swung the final bend with one wider out and couldn't quite reel in the winner. Zero Energy Act travelled behind midfield along the fence, pushed widest out at the 150m and ran on well to grab a placing 20m out. Plunged late Glory Sunshine handed up the lead to sit in the box-seat, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept grinding away to fill a Quartet spot. Favourite Mighty Wongchoy wasn't flash into stride from a wide gate, hustled to find the front passing the 1,200m, cornered a length on top and was stopping approaching the 100m. Consistent failed to respond when popped the question after straightening three deep following a breeze-punching run in second. Plenty Of Speed was detached after jumping slow and never involved. Medic Swordsman was a vet withdrawal.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (766)-STREET CAT HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

On arrival at the Start, O Bosson, the rider of MEDIC SWORDSMAN, expressed concern regarding the action of the horse.

MEDIC SWORDSMAN was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said the horse was lame in the right hind leg and accordingly was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, MEDIC SWORDSMAN was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, MEDIC SWORDSMAN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GOLDEN CANNON was crowded for room on jumping between PRECIOUS GEM which shifted in and RACINGFORPLEASURE which, after shifting out of its own accord, was then taken out further by MR VANILLA.

ZERO ENERGY ACT was steadied on jumping and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 1600 Metres, GOLDEN CANNON raced tight between PRECIOUS GEM and RACINGFORPLEASURE, both of which shifted slight ground.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, PRECIOUS GEM and GOLDEN CANNON raced tight.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, RACINGFORPLEASURE became unbalanced after jumping a shadow.

Approaching the 1200 Metres, MR VANILLA shifted out, resulting in GOLDEN CANNON being bumped and taken wider.

After this, GOLDEN CANNON travelled wide and without cover.

Also approaching the 1200 Metres, RACINGFORPLEASURE got its head up when being restrained away from the heels of CONSISTENT (Z Purton) which, after shifting in when not quite clear of RACINGFORPLEASURE, then steadied the tempo.

Z Purton was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is properly clear of other runners when shifting ground.

Near the 750 Metres, RACINGFORPLEASURE was steadied away from the heels of GLORY SUNSHINE.

Approaching the 400 Metres, THUNDER WINNER raced tight inside ONE OF A KIND which got its head on the side and lay in despite the efforts of its rider.

Near the 250 Metres, GLORY SUNSHINE raced in restricted room inside MIGHTY WONGCHOY which lay in under pressure.

Passing the 200 Metres, ZERO ENERGY ACT was shifted to the outside of MR VANILLA after being momentarily held up for clear running when unable to improve between MR VANILLA and PRECIOUS GEM.

When questioned, Y T Cheng stated that after being fractious in the barriers PLENTY OF SPEED did not show any early pace despite being vigorously ridden along.

He said he continued to ride the horse along throughout the race, however, PLENTY OF SPEED did not improve its position and was detached from the field.

He added after the race he detected no obvious abnormalities with PLENTY OF SPEED.

A veterinary inspection of PLENTY OF SPEED immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of PLENTY OF SPEED, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, PLENTY OF SPEED 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 CONSISTENT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MIGHTY WONGCHOY, PRECIOUS GEM and MR VANILLA were sent for sampling.
