Recap by phillip woo

In a blow-out result, Happy Bao Bei came with a bold run down the outside to claim victory 50m out after being ridden quietly fourth from the rear from a wide gate. He had had his chances in numerous earlier runs this term and will likely find it harder after this win. Travel Successor finished with a flurry after travelling third from the rear to make it close on the wire to cap a 1,430-1 Quinella. It was clearly his best run in 11 outings but will need to prove it was no fluke. Harrier Jet came to win the race following a deep run in midfield but drifted in at a crucial stage which cost him the race. Wonderful Fighter knocked up 100m out after advancing to the front 200m out following a pace-stalking run. It wasn't a bad run in his first outing in the grade. Hella Hedge held his ground following a box-seat run. The Valley is his meal ticket but he will require a bit more relief in the handicaps. Fantastic Feeling was badly held up from the 300m to 100m when trying to wind up from behind midfield. He should have gone closer.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (313)-CANNON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

Shortly after the start, HARRIER JET was bumped by HELLA HEDGE which shifted out.

From wide barriers, NUMERO UNO, BRILLIANT DREAM and TRAVEL SUCCESSOR were all steadied and shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Also from the outside barrier, HAPPY BAO BEI was steadied for some distance after the start to obtain a position with cover.

For some distance approaching and passing the 800 Metres, FANTASTIC FEELING, which was travelling keenly, was checked away from the heels of I'M A WITNESS.

For a considerable distance after the 800 Metres, BRILLIANT DREAM proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when being checked away from the heels of NUMERO UNO.

Near the 750 Metres, LUCKY DOUBLE EIGHT, which was over-racing, raced tight inside BURST AWAY.

After the 700 Metres, HARRIER JET shifted out away from the heels of BURST AWAY which was left racing wide and without cover.

When HARRIER JET shifted back in to resume its position behind BURST AWAY, HAPPY BAO BEI, which was following, was inconvenienced.

I'M A WITNESS was unable to obtain clear running in the early part of the Straight and passing the 200 Metres attempted to improve inside YOU READ MY MIND which shifted out momentarily before shifting back in.

This resulted in I'M A WITNESS being steadied when disappointed for running inside YOU READ MY MIND near the 150 Metres.

Because of these incidents, I'M A WITNESS was not able to be properly tested.

Passing the 300 Metres, NUMERO UNO was shifted out away from the heels of I'M A WITNESS in an attempt to obtain clear running.

From near the 250 Metres until passing the 100 Metres, FANTASTIC FEELING was unable to obtain clear running and consequently was not able to be properly tested.

Passing the 200 Metres, HELLA HEDGE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of WONDERFUL FIGHTER.

Passing the 100 Metres, BURST AWAY was checked and LUCKY DOUBLE EIGHT badly hampered when HARRIER JET (N Callan) hung in despite the efforts of its rider who stopped riding HARRIER JET in an attempt to prevent the horse from shifting in and causing interference, despite his mount being in contention to win the race at this time.

As the Stewards were satisfied that N Callan had made all reasonable endeavours to prevent HARRIER JET from shifting in, no action was taken.

In this incident, NUMERO UNO was shifted in abruptly away from the heels of LUCKY DOUBLE EIGHT.

For the majority of the Home Straight, NUMERO UNO was unable to obtain clear running and consequently was not able to be tested.

I'M A WITNESS, HAPPY BAO BEI and TRAVEL SUCCESSOR were sent for sampling.
