Recap by phillip woo

Freshened up after a dominant Griffin Trophy win in December, Win Beauty Win was much too good with a late move down the outside after travelling fourth from the rear to win going away 60m out over a distance likely to be short of his best. He's got plenty more upside to come. Favourite Hezthewonforus finished nicely near the inside to get up a clear second following a midfield. It was a good debut effort and he appears to want a further trip. Winning Supreme found a couple too smart after setting a decent pace in front. His natural speed is always going to be an asset but do prefer him in Class Four. Specked late, So Fast whacked away to finish a distant fourth following a prominent run. Eagle made ground after settling second from the rear from a wide gate in an encouraging debut but will likely need more time to show his true colours. Super Wise had excuses after being left without cover in midfield from a wide gate the entire trip.

Racing Incident Report

Race : (576) - YAN CHAU TONG HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

GREAT HONOUR began awkwardly and then from a wide barrier was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Also from the outside barrier, EAGLE was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

LASTING FRIENDSHIP raced in restricted room shortly after the start between VICTORY MACHINE and HEZTHEWONFORUS which shifted out.

HEZTHEWONFORUS then became unbalanced after making contact with LASTING FRIENDSHIP.

Near the 1050 Metres, RIGHT CALL was steadied to avoid the heels of VICTORY MACHINE (Apprentice M F Poon) which shifted in when not properly clear.

Apprentice Poon was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he provides sufficient clearance when shifting ground.

When RIGHT CALL was steadied, ALL BEST FRIENDS was inconvenienced when racing close to the heels of SO FAST.

Passing the 1000 Metres, HEZTHEWONFORUS got its head up on a number of occasions when being steadied to obtain cover behind RIGHT CALL.

Making the turn near the 900 Metres, VICTORY MACHINE and ORIONIDS made contact due to both horses shifting ground.

A short distance later, VICTORY MACHINE was hampered when racing tight between WINNING SUPREME and ORIONIDS which became unbalanced and lay in before being corrected by its rider.

After the 800 Metres, HEZTHEWONFORUS got its head up when awkwardly placed behind RIGHT CALL.

Passing the 500 Metres, ALL BEST FRIENDS raced in restricted room inside HEZTHEWONFORUS which improved into tight running inside RIGHT CALL.

Approaching the 200 Metres, EAGLE (U Rispoli), which was closing off the race strongly, was shifted in abruptly away from the heels of ORIONIDS and in doing so shifted in towards the heels of SO FAST.

EAGLE was then severely checked passing the 200 Metres when disappointed for running between ORIONIDS and SO FAST which got its head on the side and shifted out away from VICTORY MACHINE.

U Rispoli stated that leaving the 300 Metres he considered improving to the outside of ORIONIDS and inside SUPER WISE, however, as that run was commencing to become tight, he elected to shift to the inside of ORIONIDS as he felt that this option would present him with the best chance to obtain uninterrupted running.

He said however that due to EAGLE having to be shifted in abruptly away from the heels of ORIONIDS and SO FAST shifting out, this resulted in EAGLE being badly checked when disappointed for running.

GREAT HONOUR was not able to obtain clear running over the final 200 Metres and consequently was not able to be tested.

Passing the 100 Metres, RIGHT CALL was steadied when awkwardly placed behind VICTORY MACHINE which was giving ground.

Throughout the race, ORIONIDS travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of ORIONIDS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

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

WIN BEAUTY WIN and HEZTHEWONFORUS were sent for sampling.
