Recap by phillip woo

Just Not Listening to me cleared to the lead at the 700m from a wide gate and kept finding to hold off favourite Sam's Love for back-to-back wins. He does grow an extra foot on this surface. Sam's Love kept coming despite sitting no better than three-deep beyond midfield the entire trip after a tardy break to make it close on the wire. Kirov finished well to place from behind midfield after having to wait for a run to arrive 250m out. He remains in good spirits following a first-up win. Viva Council closed strongly down the outside racing one from the back to fill a Quartet spot. He's proving to be an effective money spinner for connections on both surfaces in this grade. Sunshine Universe was making ground late after parking just underneath Sam's Love in the run. It was a pleasing first run back following a stable change and leg injury in April. Sweetie Barley was held up until the 100m after travelling near the back and should have finished closer.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (94) - TAI HO HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

SAM'S LOVE began only fairly.

HAPPY HAPPY STAR shifted out at the start and bumped SUNSHINE UNIVERSE.

GRAND HARBOUR shifted out at the start and inconvenienced VERY SWEET ORANGE.

SWEETIE BARLEY was crowded for room on jumping between STRIKING MR C and JUST NOT LISTENING, both of which shifted ground.

After this, from a wide barrier, SWEETIE BARLEY was shifted across behind runners.

GIDDY GIDDY began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, VIVA COUNCIL was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

VERY SWEET ORANGE brushed the running rail of its own accord near the 700 Metres, causing the horse to become badly unbalanced and shifting out towards the heels of JUST NOT LISTENING.

Making the turn after the 700 Metres, GIDDY GIDDY got its head on the side and hung out and after this raced wide and without cover.

For some distance approaching the 500 Metres, VERY SWEET ORANGE (Apprentice C Wong) raced close to the heels of JUST NOT LISTENING.

Apprentice Wong, in the presence of Mr F Coetzee, Chief Riding Instructor, was shown the video footage of the relevant portion of the race and advised to ensure that he does not allow his mounts to race too close to the heels of runners in front.

Rounding the Home Turn, GRAND HARBOUR was awkwardly placed behind STRIKING MR C.

Rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight, DOLLAR REWARD lay out.

Approaching and passing the 200 Metres, SWEETIE BARLEY was held up for clear running and near the 150 Metres was shifted to the outside of KIROV to improve.

When questioned, H N Wong stated that it was intended for HAPPY HAPPY STAR to be ridden in a forward position, however, the horse did not begin well.

He said he rode his mount vigorously in the early stages, however, HAPPY HAPPY STAR did not show any early speed and after being shifted to the inside of KIROV near the 1100 Metres, despite being continually ridden along, would not improve its position.

He said HAPPY HAPPY STAR did not feel entirely comfortable in its action and at no stage raced competitively.

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

Before being allowed to race again, HAPPY HAPPY STAR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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

A veterinary inspection of GRAND HARBOUR 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 STRIKING MR C immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

JUST NOT LISTENING and SAM'S LOVE were sent for sampling.

<15/10/2018 Additional Veterinary Report>GIDDY GIDDY, which performed poorly, was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said at that time there were no significant findings.

GIDDY GIDDY was again examined by the Veterinary Officer at the stables of Trainer J Size yesterday morning.

He said at this time he noted the horse to be lame in its right front leg with a restricted action in all four limbs.

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