Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, Premium Champion quickened nicely after pulling out at the 300m following a patient ride fourth from rear to take control 120m out. He was too classy with a drop in class and it wouldn't surprise to see him notch another up in class in the near future. Loyal Craftsman took off four deep at the 600m to park third coming to the final bend and kept on gamely to grab second 20m out. He's capable of running a race over this sort of trip but isn't reliable. Glory Star injected pace when taking off to lead 1,500m out after a very deep run in midfield and kept on gamely to just hold a placing. He's always a chance at this level. Post-time favourite Je Pense closed strongly to nearly place after a patient ride at the rear of the field. He was suited by the downgrade. Early favourite Eastern Prowess had his chance tracking a good pace in the box-seat. He's more effective over a shorter trip. Telephatia was short of room early straight following a rails run in midfield and kept on evenly over the last 150m. He's not genuine.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (761)-WONG CHUK WAN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 2200Metres

On arrival at the Start, WEALTHY FORTUNE, which made contact with a rail on leaving the Parade Ring, was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

ALWAYS WONGCHOY began only fairly and shortly after the start was crowded for room between PREMIUM CHAMPION and CHARITY PLENTY, both of which shifted ground.

In this incident, PREMIUM CHAMPION became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by ALWAYS WONGCHOY.

Shortly after the start, TELEPHATIA shifted out and bumped EASTERN PROWESS.

From a wide barrier, JE PENSE was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

After travelling about 50 Metres, PREMIUM CHAMPION was crowded for room between CHARITY PLENTY and LOYAL CRAFTSMAN which shifted out away from AMRITSARIA.

Making the turn near the 2100 Metres, CHARITY PLENTY was momentarily crowded for room between GLORY STAR and STORM KID.

GLORY STAR was then shifted out to relieve the tightening to CHARITY PLENTY.

Passing the 600 Metres, PREMIUM CHAMPION raced in restricted room between CHARITY PLENTY and TELEPHATIA after improving into tight running between those horses.

In this incident, CHARITY PLENTY, which was commencing to give ground, was inconvenienced when racing tight inside JE PENSE.

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

Before being allowed to race again, CHARITY PLENTY will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Passing the 200 Metres, TELEPHATIA was awkwardly placed inside AMRITSARIA.

When questioned, O Doleuze stated that he had been instructed to lead on WEALTHY FORTUNE as it was felt that the race would be run at a slow tempo.

He said WEALTHY FORTUNE does not have early speed and it was felt that the horse, from the wide barrier, would be unlikely to assume the outright lead in the early stages.

He said it was anticipated that the tempo of the race would slow in the Home Straight on the first occasion as most of the runners would have assumed their positions by this time.

He said he therefore felt that this would provide WEALTHY FORTUNE with an opportunity to improve towards the lead.

He said in accordance with his instructions he rode his mount along in the early stages, however, as he expected, WEALTHY FORTUNE did not show sufficient early speed to lead the race.

He said although an opportunity presented itself for WEALTHY FORTUNE to possibly obtain cover behind LOYAL CRAFTSMAN near the 1800 Metres, because of his instructions, he was reluctant to take this option.

He said GLORY STAR was going forward of WEALTHY FORTUNE at this time and he was hoping to follow that horse forward with a view to possibly shifting in to race to its outside after it obtained the lead.

He said the tempo of the race after the 1600 Metres was quicker than he expected and WEALTHY FORTUNE was not travelling well enough at this time to be able to improve its position and clear runners to its inside to obtain a position outside GLORY STAR.

He added the tempo of the race increased further after the 1200 Metres and WEALTHY FORTUNE was not travelling as strongly as it did last start when he shifted the horse out mid-race to improve due to how well the horse was travelling.

He said he had to niggle at WEALTHY FORTUNE in the middle stages to maintain its position and he was not able to quicken with LOYAL CRAFTSMAN when that horse improved its position in advance of WEALTHY FORTUNE passing the 700 Metres.

He said after this WEALTHY FORTUNE did not finish off the race as expected.

After considering the matter, in particular the sectional times during the relevant periods of the race, no further action was taken.

A veterinary inspection of WEALTHY FORTUNE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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