Recap by phillip woo

Big Time Baby won going away 200m out following a dream run. He had put the writing on the wall two back and appears to have raised his game to a new level this term. Gunnison came on strongly from near the back to overhaul raging favourite Ugly Warrior for second despite a big weight. Ugly Warrior had his chance following a one-out, one-back run. The sharp rise in weight for a last-start win seemed to anchor him. Plunged late Encore Boy stayed on reasonably well following a handy run. It was a pleasing effort up in class off a light weight but he's better suited in Class Three. It wasn't a bad effort by Perpetual Treasure who grudgingly gave way after setting a good pace in front. He's always a chance on this surface but may be on or near his mark. Newcomer Glorious Spectrum made some ground without menacing travelling third from the back following a sluggish start. He'll certainly come on for this run and is better suited over a longer trip on the turf.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (225) - NATHAN HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Meters

GLORIOUS SPECTRUM was slow to begin.

ENCORE BOY began awkwardly.

BEAR SLAM was slow to begin and then from the outside barrier was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

From a wide barrier, GUNNISON got its head up on a number of occasions shortly after the start when being steadied to obtain cover.

Also from a wide barrier, MEGA RED was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

When being steadied to obtain cover passing the 800 Metres, MAGIC LEGEND got its head up on a number of occasions.

Making the turn near the 700 Metres, BIG TIME BABY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PERPETUAL TREASURE.

Making the first turn at the 700 Metres, GLORIOUS SPECTRUM got its head on the side and hung out across the heels of MAGIC LEGEND.

GUNNISON, which was following, was checked away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

In the Straight, ENCORE BOY raced with its head on the side and lay out under pressure.

When questioned, K C Leung (MEGA RED) stated that he briefly stopped riding his mount approaching the 100 Metres after being struck in the face by kickback.

K C Leung explained that this was only momentary and he was able to ride MEGA RED out for the remainder of the race and it finished off the race well although close to the finishing line he was awkwardly placed inside MOMENT OF POWER.

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

The Stewards will interview Mr K L Man, trainer of BIG TIME BABY, regarding the improved performance of that horse compared to its most recent start at the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 5 December 2018.

A veterinary inspection of PICK NUMBER ONE immediately following the race found that horse to be lame in its right front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, PICK NUMBER ONE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

UGLY WARRIOR, BIG TIME BABY and GUNNISON were sent for sampling.
