Recap by phillip woo

Punted late Regency Legend punched clear at the 250m following a deep run without cover fore of midfield for an impressive debut win. Favourite Jing Jing Win did briefly hit the front approaching the 300m following a one-out, one-back run. It was another honest performance but he's proving costly on a win line. High Five stayed on well following a midfield run to fill a placing. His course and distance form this term has been very hard to fault and the move to a claimer was a good move. Top Score ran on steadily along the inside to just take fourth following a rail run behind midfield. He'll be one to keep safe if he can find his way into Class Four. Ka Ying Legend kept grinding away following a deep run with cover behind the winner from a wide gate. He appears from his past two runs to be on the right track now. Ambitious Heart came up one-paced following a handy run along the fence. It wasn't a bad effort following a last-start win.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (237) - ABLE FRIEND HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

MASTER ALBERT began awkwardly.

HANDSOME REBEL shifted out at the start and bumped MAGNIFICENT.

MAGNIFICENT was then crowded for room between REGENCY LEGEND and HANDSOME REBEL which shifted out further.

LOVING A BOOM shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of BEAUTY SPIRIT.

LOVING A BOOM was then crowded for room between REGENCY LEGEND and BEAUTY SPIRIT which shifted in.

From wide barriers, LOVING A BOOM, BEAUTY SPIRIT and SONIC FIGHTER were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1100 Metres, MASTER ALBERT raced tight inside AMBITIOUS HEART which was taken in by HIGH FIVE (Apprentice C Wong).

Apprentice Wong was reprimanded and advised that in similar circumstances he would be expected to ensure that he does not allow his mounts to shift ground such that other runners are crowded for room.

After the 1000 Metres, G van Niekerk (AMBITIOUS HEART) adjusted his left foot in the stirrup.

Near the 800 Metres, REGENCY LEGEND was left racing wide and without cover.

For some distance after the 700 Metres, AMBITIOUS HEART travelled keenly and passing the 600 Metres was checked away from the heels of FLYING BONUS.

AMBITIOUS HEART was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

HIGH FIVE was awkwardly placed behind JING JING WIN passing the 400 Metres.

Passing the 300 Metres, MASTER ALBERT was shifted to the outside of HANDSOME REBEL after being momentarily held up for clear running.

Near the 50 Metres, TOP SCORE, which was improving into tight running inside HIGH FIVE, was struck across the nose by the whip of Apprentice Wong.

After the race, Apprentice H T Mo was unable to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of FLYING BONUS.

He said he was able to take up a forward position without having to make too much use of the horse and FLYING BONUS then travelled satisfactorily in the lead.

He said however that after being placed under pressure in the Straight, the horse did not respond and gave ground over the latter stages of the race.

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

A veterinary inspection of SONIC FIGHTER immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and also found it to be lame in its right hind leg.

Before being allowed to race again, SONIC FIGHTER will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

REGENCY LEGEND and JING JING WIN were sent for sampling.
