Recap by phillip woo

Kasi Farasi was given a lovely ride by Zac Purton to take control 150m out after peeling into the open soon after straightening following a midfield run on the fence. Favourite Noble Steed was twice impeded in the drive which cost him the win following a one-off run behind midfield. Beauty Spirit stayed on better settling effectively one-out, oneback to add some value to the tierce. He had put the writing on the wall last time out and is heading in the right direction now. Sun Touch grudgingly gave way after leading from a wide gate. He makes his own luck in front but is trying to find his mark again. Winning Endeavour closed well travelling second from the back to pick up a cheque. He's run on well in his three starts. Kingsfield had his chance following a box-seat run carrying top weight. He's in the right grade and may need to make use of a seven-pound claimer. Amazing made some ground without menacing following a one-off run in midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (356) - TAI PING SHAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Meters

On arrival at the Start, the tongue tie applied to KASI FARASI was replaced.

BIZ POWER was slow to begin.

MAGNIFICENT shifted in at the start and bumped KINGSFIELD which was crowded for room and taken in onto WINNING ENDEAVOUR.

After the 1000 Metres, WITNESS HUNTER was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 650 Metres, WITNESS HUNTER was taken wider by AMAZING which shifted to the outside of BEAUTY SPIRIT.

Approaching the 500 Metres, AMAZING raced tight outside BEAUTY SPIRIT which got its head on the side and lay out.

Then passing the 500 Metres, AMAZING was steadied away from the heels of BEAUTY SPIRIT as that horse was taken out further by KASI FARASI.

NOBLE STEED was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and then near the 300 Metres was checked away from the heels of KINGSFIELD when disappointed for running between that horse and KASI FARASI.

NOBLE STEED was then shifted to the outside of KASI FARASI passing the 250 Metres to obtain clear running.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of NOT USUAL TALENT, U Rispoli stated that stepping up in distance today and from the wide barrier, he was asked to obtain a forward position.

He said after having to ride his mount along in the initial stages of the race he was able to shift NOT USUAL TALENT across to race outside the leader SUN TOUCH and after briefly travelling keenly passing the 1000 Metres the horse then relaxed well.

He said however that NOT USUAL TALENT came under pressure passing the 600 Metres and he had to ride the horse vigorously prior to the 500 Metres.

He added NOT USUAL TALENT did not respond at all to his riding and then weakened noticeably in the Home Straight to finish at the rear of the field.

A veterinary inspection of NOT USUAL TALENT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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

A veterinary inspection of SUPER HERO immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

KASI FARASI and NOBLE STEED were sent for sampling.
