Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Iron Boy shot clear approaching the 200m after enjoying a sweet run in the box-seat following a beautiful start to score an overdue win following back-to-back placings. It was another case of Joao Moreira bringing out the best when others couldn't. Thumped at the jump, Lucky Guy quickened nicely to overhaul Carefree Let Go for second after covering plenty of ground beyond midfield. Off a mark of 60 before this run, he'll likely remain in the grade off a lightweight or continue to make use of a claimer down in class but either way he'll be a winning chance when next stepping out. Another lateplunged runner, Carefree Let Go isn't genuine but took full advantage of a good gate to get up for a placing following a rails run three back. He's itching for a return to Class Four where he was successful last term. Roundabout ran on well from the back for fourth.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (070)-SHANGHAI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

After beginning awkwardly and making contact with LUCKY GUY, ENDEARING then shifted in, resulting in CAPE THE FAITH which began awkwardly being further hampered.

CALL ME AWESOME began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of CAREFREE LET GO.

On the first turn at the 850 Metres, CALL ME AWESOME (K C Leung) shifted out, resulting in ORIONIDS being hampered and taken wider.

K C Leung advised that CALL ME AWESOME then hung out throughout the middle stages and he was unable to get the horse to relax whilst racing in the lead.

He said as a consequence CALL ME AWESOME was beaten soon after straightening and then weakened in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of CALL ME AWESOME immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Passing the 500 Metres, LAUGH OUT LORD was steadied when momentarily tightened for room between LOVELY DELOVELY and GORGEOUS KING which shifted out slightly.

CAREFREE LET GO was held up for a short distance in the early part of the Straight.

Also in the early part of the Straight, LAUGH OUT LOUD was awkwardly placed outside the heels of GORGEOUS KING.

When placed under pressure in the Straight, ORIONIDS raced greenly and was inclined to hang out.

When questioned regarding his riding of ROUNDABOUT in the Home Straight, particularly in the early part of the Straight, D Whyte stated that after discussions with connections prior to its last start win, it was felt that ROUNDABOUT gives its best when able to be brought to the outside as the horse is reluctant to improve between runners.

He said it was decided to ride ROUNDABOUT exactly the same manner as its last start by going back from its outside barrier and bringing the horse to be extreme outside on straightening.

He said on straightening he brought ROUNDABOUT to the outside and rode the horse in a hands and heels fashion in the early part of the Straight and similar to last start, the horse let down well and commenced to close off strongly.

He said that he continued to ride ROUNDABOUT hands and heels before pulling the whip near the 150 Metres as ROUNDABOUT continued to close off well.

D Whyte was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must ensure that he does not give his mounts too much to do.

IRON BOY and LUCKY GUY were sent for sampling.
