Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Helene Charisma got up 130m out after saving ground behind midfield to make it back-to-back wins in a track record time. The penny has finally dropped with him and he'll continue to be competitive off a higher mark over 1,800m and further. Tashidelek got the better of Happy Dragon close to home for second following a dream run on the fence tracking the swift pace of Vigor Fame. It was a much-improved run at his fifth start with a switch to the Valley. Happy Dragon was just denied a Quinella spot following a handy run along the fence. It was another good run despite a sharp rise in trip. Happy Sebring peaked on his run 100m out after taking off from last following a slow break at the 900m to get to second at the 700m. He's not reliable. Rocketeer got going late without menacing after getting shuffled back to near last approaching the final bend. Classic Beauty faded after working hard early on to park outside the leader.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (534) - MOUNT COLLINSON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 2200Meters

JOLLY GENE was withdrawn on 26.3.19 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right hind).

Before being allowed to race again, JOLLY GENE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

HAPPY SEBRING was very slow to begin.

Having regard to HAPPY SEBRING's prior history of being slow to begin, the Stewards ruled that it must barrier trial satisfactorily before being permitted to race again.

Shortly after the start, KUNGFUMASTER PANDA and CLASSIC BEAUTY bumped.

From a wide barrier, CHEERFUL STAR was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Passing the 1800 Metres, CLASSIC BEAUTY was left racing very wide and was allowed to improve its position to race closer to the rail after passing the winning post on the first occasion.

Also passing the 1800 Metres, HAPPY DRAGON got its head up when awkwardly placed behind TASHIDELEK.

After the 700 Metres, HEAVENLY THOUGHT was left racing wide and without cover.

At the 450 Metres, ROCKETEER was steadied when disappointed for running between GIANT TURTLE and HELENE CHARISMA which shifted to the outside of HAPPY DRAGON.

Near the 150 Metres, HAPPY SEBRING raced tight inside TASHIDELEK.

When questioned, C Y Ho stated that it was anticipated that HAPPY SEBRING would be positioned back in the field and he was asked to attempt to improve his position from the 1000 Metres in order to obtain a closer position so that HAPPY SEBRING did not have too much to do in the latter stages of the race.

He said HAPPY SEBRING was very slow to begin which resulted in the horse racing at the rear of the field.

He said whilst the race was being run at a good tempo in the early stages, HAPPY SEBRING had been able to conserve energy by being positioned at the rear of the field.

He said near the 1000 Metres the pace of the race commenced to steady and given his instructions, he felt that this was an opportune time to allow HAPPY SEBRING to improve its position and therefore he shifted HAPPY SEBRING out after the 1000 Metres accordingly and improved around the field to race outside the lead passing the 700 Metres.

When questioned, J Moreira (VIGOR FAME) stated that after having to ride his mount along from a wide barrier to obtain the lead, VIGOR FAME then travelled keenly in the early stages.

He said he tried to have the horse settled after the 1800 Metres, however, VIGOR FAME was racing keenly at this time and the horse would not relax as he had hoped.

He said approaching the winning post on the first occasion CLASSIC BEAUTY was ridden along to improve its position forward of GIANT TURTLE to race outside VIGOR FAME.

He said although CLASSIC BEAUTY was then steadied by its rider to sit off VIGOR FAME, VIGOR FAME commenced to travel more keenly as a result of CLASSIC BEAUTY initially improving to its outside.

He said it was not until near the 1000 Metres that he was able to get VIGOR FAME to settle better and he had hoped to be able to set a slower tempo.

He said however HAPPY SEBRING improved its position approaching the 700 Metres to race outside VIGOR FAME and he then had to ride his mount along to maintain his position inside that horse.

He added because of these factors VIGOR FAME was then not able to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of VIGOR FAME immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of GIANT TURTLE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HELENE CHARISMA and TASHIDELEK were sent for sampling.
