Recap by phillip woo

Fortunate Runner finished well travelling fore of midfield to take control 150m out for a first win after staying on fourth best in four of six other starts. Follow Me closed nicely from behind midfield to grab second 50m out. He was suited by the rise in trip after an encouraging debut over the 1,200m. My Winner made good ground late after badly missing the kick to fill a placing. He produces an odd good run at times. Savvy Seven ran on well after settling third from the rear at only his third start. He's heading in the right direction and appreciated the step up in distance. Magic Success was getting going late near the outside racing fourth from the back. Supreme Witness gradually faded in the run to the wire after clearing to lead 900m out. Wait for a return to Class Five. Favourite Have Fun Together came up flat in the drive after handing up the lead to Supreme Witness. Pearl Champion was badly held up behind the tiring leader following a box-seat run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (95) - THE CHINESE GENERAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 4 - 1400Meters

As the start was effected, MY WINNER bounded in the air, resulting in its rider, K Teetan, becoming very unbalanced and MY WINNER losing a considerable amount of ground.

Before being allowed to race again, MY WINNER will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

SUPREME WITNESS began only fairly and then shortly after the start was crowded for room between MONICA and MAGIC SUCCESS which got its head on the side and shifted in away from FORTUNATE RUNNER which shifted in.

After this, SUPREME WITNESS was ridden along for some distance to obtain the lead after the 900 Metres.

RUMBA DELAGO began very awkwardly, shifted out and made heavy contact with the hindquarters of NORDIC WARRIOR, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

Passing the 450 Metres, CLEAR CHOICE, which was awkwardly placed outside the heels of HAVE FUN TOGETHER, became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by PEARL CHAMPION.

Passing the 400 Metres, NORDIC WARRIOR and EVERYONE'S ELITE raced tight.

After being unable to improve to the outside of HAVE FUN TOGETHER passing the 400 Metres, PEARL CHAMPION was consequently shifted to the inside of that horse.

PEARL CHAMPION was then badly held up for clear running over the final 200 Metres and near the 50 Metres was checked away from the heels of SUPREME WITNESS.

Because of this, PEARL CHAMPION was not able to be tested.

Passing the 250 Metres and again passing the 200 Metres, SAVVY SEVEN and MY WINNER raced tight.

Near the 200 Metres, ENERGETIC CLASS was steadied away from the heels of PEARL CHAMPION which shifted in.

ENERGETIC CLASS was then held up for clear running until approaching the 100 Metres and after the 100 Metres was shifted out away from the heels of HAVE FUN TOGETHER.

Passing the 150 Metres, FORTUNATE RUNNER shifted out abruptly, resulting in FOLLOW ME, NORDIC WARRIOR and MAGIC SUCCESS being inconvenienced.

For the majority of the race, MONICA and EVERYONE'S ELITE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of HAVE FUN TOGETHER, Z Purton stated that, from a wide barrier, he rode his mount positively in the early stages and HAVE FUN TOGETHER was able to shift across to race on the rail without having to have too much use made of it.

He said when SUPREME WITNESS improved around HAVE FUN TOGETHER near the 900 Metres, he allowed that horse to cross and he was happy with the manner in which HAVE FUN TOGETHER travelled in the early and middle stages.

He said HAVE FUN TOGETHER quickened satisfactorily in the early part of the Straight when shifted to the outside of SUPREME WITNESS, however, despite being placed under heavy pressure, did not improve past that horse and then was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of HAVE FUN TOGETHER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on PEARL CHAMPION at the request of Trainer A T Millard.

The Veterinary Surgeon reported that this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

HAVE FUN TOGETHER, FORTUNATE RUNNER and FOLLOW ME were sent for sampling.
