Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, Happy Meteor was well rated on the lead from a wide gate and kept finding to easily score for first-day apprentice Matthew Poon Ming-fai. He might remain competitive with the claimer's allowance up in grade off a feather weight on this surface. Golden Sun stuck on well following a box-seat run. The good gate and equipment change was the key to his improved run at this level. Deja Vu was beaten for speed but eventually got going from behind midfield to place. His form of late on this surface has been good but he finds the 1,200m too short now and mile too long. Dragon Master let down well from near the back but he's still a bit high in the handicaps. Super Man should have placed if not bothered by Arizona Blizzard when trying to wind up from midfield at the 200m. He's not going any higher than this class but rarely runs a bad race on this surface. Arizona Blizzard's tended to lay-in under pressure following a midfield run. This bad habit will need to be rectified and he's not one to take at short odds. Radiant Bunny ran into a tonne of traffic when trying to get going from the rear of the field. He had excuses.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (521)-ELGIN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

DRAGON MASTER shifted out abruptly at the start, resulting in ARIZONA BLIZZARD and LITTERATEUR being badly crowded for room inside SWISS WARRIOR which became unbalanced when bumped by LITTERATEUR.

DRAGON MASTER continued to shift out and shortly after the start stumbled.

From wide barriers, BEAR RAPPER and RADIANT BUNNY were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 1150 Metres, LITTERATEUR was steadied away from the heels of SWISS WARRIOR (Z Purton) which shifted in when being ridden along.

Z Purton will be advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Approaching the 900 Metres, SUPER MAN raced tight inside the heels of GOLDEN SUN which, when being ridden along, shifted in when racing tight inside SWISS WARRIOR.

Near the 450 Metres, SUPER MAN shifted out and made contact with ARIZONA BLIZZARD which became unbalanced.

At the entrance to the Straight, SUPER MAN, which had improved into tight running between STARTLING POWER and ARIZONA BLIZZARD, was checked when STARTLING POWER shifted out marginally and ARIZONA BLIZZARD shifted in as its rider, J Moreira, was changing his whip from his left hand into his right hand.

In the circumstances, J Moreira was advised to ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground.

Near the 200 Metres, SUPER MAN was hampered when momentarily crowded for room inside ARIZONA BLIZZARD which shifted in.

J Moreira was severely reprimanded and advised that whilst the Stewards accepted that ARIZONA BLIZZARD hung in in the Straight, in future he would be expected to make every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground.

DEJA VU was held up for clear running approaching and passing the 200 Metres.

Approaching the 100 Metres, RADIANT BUNNY was severely checked away from the heels of SWISS WARRIOR which gave ground abruptly.

In the Straight, DRAGON MASTER lay out under pressure.

Throughout the race, STARTLING POWER travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of SWISS WARRIOR immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea and that it also displaying signs of thumps.

Before being allowed to race again, SWISS WARRIOR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of ARIZONA BLIZZARD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SWISS WARRIOR, HAPPY METEOR and GOLDEN SUN were sent for sampling.
