Recap by phillip woo

Strathallan was up with the leaders in the centre of the track, led 600m out and kept on gamely to open his win account at start four. Hainan Star stayed on very well following a handy run to make it close on the wire in his debut. He's got some raw talent and will come on for this run. Perfect Match kept on well after shading them in front for the most part. It was a good start to his career. Bella Baby ran on steadily from beyond midfield to fill add further value to the Quartet. He's made some progress on his two Griffin starts last term and likely wants a longer trip. Big Party briefly poked his head in front at the 280m and gave way 100m out after travelling a bit wayward in the run racing up on the speed on the stands side. Le Terroir made some ground late without menacing from near the back. He requires a longer trip. Quadruple Double returned 50 pounds heavier and was struggling 300m out chasing the speed. He clearly needed the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (91) - CHUNG ON HANDICAP - Class 4R - 1000Meters

Whilst in the saddling stalls, SMART ROCKET had its right hind plate refitted.

SMART ROCKET was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

GREAT VICTORY began awkwardly and lost ground.

SMART ROCKET began only fairly.

BELLA BABY shifted out on jumping and bumped BLIZZING AWAY.

LE TERROIR and BIG PARTY brushed at the start.

Passing the 700 Metres, ROYAL RACER commenced to travel keenly and shifted in away from the heels of HAINAN STAR and in doing so raced tight between that horse and GREAT VICTORY.

Passing the 300 Metres, BELLA BABY was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of PERFECT MATCH.

Also passing the 300 Metres, LE TERROIR became unbalanced of its own accord.

Close to the finishing line, LE TERROIR raced close to the heels of BIG PARTY.

When questioned regarding the performance of BIG PARTY, N Callan stated that due to the circumstances of its two trials in the lead up to today's race, BIG PARTY had not needed to come off the bridle and had travelled strongly throughout.

He said in its most recent trial, the horse had lay in and therefore consideration was given by connections as to whether the horse should have a further trial leading into today's race.

He said given the likely makeup of today's race which was run under restricted conditions, it was felt that this would be a suitable option for the horse's racing debut.

He added BIG PARTY travelled well in the early and middle stages albeit the horse was inclined to lay in as it did in its most recent trial which he put down to immaturity.

He said whilst BIG PARTY did not finish off the race as well as he anticipated, he felt that the horse would improve markedly for the race experience.

Trainer F C Lor confirmed that he did give consideration to giving BIG PARTY another trial prior to racing, however, this was only for experience purposes and not from a fitness point of view.

He also offered the opinion that BIG PARTY would benefit greatly from today's race.

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

After the race, Z Purton was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of QUADRUPLE DOUBLE but did add that as the horse was first up today it may benefit from the race.

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

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

BIG PARTY, STRATHALLAN and HAINAN STAR were sent for sampling.
