Recap by phillip woo

Plunged to jump favourite Smart Baby responded nicely following a midfield run to win going away 160m out for a second straight win despite a return to Class Four. Old-timer Happy Rocky closed well from near last to grab second 150m out. He's come into his own in his past three starts over a range of distances and can pop up at any moment. Early favourite You Have My Word finished strongly to grab third after straightening with only one behind him. It was still a good run in defeat carrying top weight. Savannah Wind kept on one-paced following a dream run on the back of the speed. He's more effective when ridden more patiently in the run. Penzance was one-paced after going forward following a sluggish break from a wide gate to slot one-out, one-back in the run. He's a Class Five horse. Well-backed late Good Days knocked up 200m out after taking off 950m out to lead at the 450m. He had excuses but is still trying to find a bottom.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (213) - THE ST ANDREW'S CHALLENGE QUAICH (HANDICAP) - Class 4 - 2200Meters

GOOD DAYS began awkwardly.

PENZANCE began very awkwardly, shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of HAPPY ROCKY, resulting in HAPPY ROCKY becoming unbalanced and PENZANCE losing ground.

Shortly after the start, PENZANCE and KING OF MONGOLIA bumped as PENZANCE improved into tight running between KING OF MONGOLIA and HAPPY ROCKY which was being steadied to obtain cover.

From the outside barrier, BUNDLE OF ENERGY was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, ROMANTIC JOURNEY failed to muster speed.

After being hard ridden in the early stages, GOOD DAYS shifted in away from the heels of KING OF MONGOLIA near the 2000 Metres and then improved into tight running between that horse and ROMANTIC JOURNEY.

KING OF MONGOLIA was then left racing wide and without cover after the 2000 Metres and consequently improved its position in the Straight on the first occasion to shift across and race outside the lead approaching the 1200 Metres.

After the 1900 Metres, GOOD DAYS commenced to prove very difficult to settle and near the 1800 Metres was checked away from the heels of YOU HAVE MY WORD.

GOOD DAYS then shifted to the outside of that horse when continuing to prove difficult to settle.

GOOD DAYS was then left racing wide and without cover approaching the 1200 Metres.

After racing wide and without cover for some distance, GOOD DAYS was ridden along after the 900 Metres to shift in and race outside the lead passing the 700 Metres at which stage MCQUEEN was left racing wide and without cover.

Rounding the Home Turn, SAVANNAH WIND raced tight outside ART OF RAW which shifted out when commencing to give ground.

Passing the 300 Metres, KING OF MONGOLIA was shifted in away from the heels of ART OF RAW which continued to give ground.

S de Sousa (BUNDLE OF ENERGY) was warned against the practice of using the whip on a horse out of contention.

The performances of MCQUEEN and ART OF RAW, which finished tailed out, were considered unacceptable.

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

A veterinary inspection of MCQUEEN and ART OF RAW immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SMART BABY and HAPPY ROCKY were sent for sampling.
