Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Happy Fun responded very well when challenged for the lead by Circuit Hassler mid-race to easily notch a second win from his past four starts. He has the tools to head higher. Mighty Maverick finished level for second with Cot Campbell after finishing well two from the right following a one-off run better than midfield. He's as honest but has trouble winning. Cot Campbell really closed off well over the last 100m after saving ground behind midfield following a terrible start. He's improved during the summer break and likely wants a further trip. Well-backed Circuit Hassler was swamped late for a placing after bugging the leader. He's not far off a bottom. Flying Quest made good headway widest out from the rear of the field. It was a surprisingly good run and he's clearly better at the Valley. Looking Good came up flat inside the last 100m following a box-seat run. It wasn't a bad effort in his first run this campaign.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (38) - WOODPECKER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Meters

When proceeding to the barriers, BEAR AGAIN whipped around approaching the barriers, resulting in M Chadwick being dislodged from the horse.

BEAR AGAIN was then recaptured without incident.

M Chadwick was examined by the Chief Medical Officer and passed fit to fulfil his riding engagement.

BEAR AGAIN was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

COT CAMPBELL stood flat-footed as the start was effected and consequently lost a considerable amount of ground.

Before being allowed to race again, COT CAMPBELL will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

HO HO FEEL shifted out at the start and bumped ULTIMATE GLORY which in turn shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of LOOKING GOOD.

From wide barriers, UNICORNBABY, BEAR AGAIN, FLYING QUEST and TASHIDELEK were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

When being shifted in behind BEAR AGAIN, TASHIDELEK struck the heels of that horse as BEAR AGAIN was being steadied to obtain cover after the 1300 Metres.

In this incident, BEAR AGAIN became unbalanced and after this proved difficult to settle and subsequently travelled wide and without cover throughout the race.

After the race, M Chadwick stated that when BEAR AGAIN was over-racing, his saddle shifted, causing him some inconvenience.

Making the turn approaching the 900 Metres, ASSIMILATE got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of MONGOLIAN LEGEND.

At the entrance to the Straight, AMAZING LUCK raced tight outside LOOKING GOOD which attempted to improve to the outside of CIRCUIT HASSLER.

Near the 50 Metres, LOOKING GOOD shifted out away from COT CAMPBELL and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CIRCUIT HASSLER.

Consequently LOOKING GOOD was not able to be ridden out over the concluding stages.

The performance of BEAR AGAIN, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

After the race, T H So expressed concern regarding the action of MONGOLIAN LEGEND which came under pressure prior to the 600 Metres and then weakened in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of MONGOLIAN LEGEND immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and an endoscopic examination also showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

A veterinary inspection of LOOKING GOOD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HAPPY FUN, COT CAMPBELL and MIGHTY MAVERICK were sent for sampling.
