Recap by phillip woo

Wonderful Tiger quickened nicely following a one-off run worse than midfield to overhaul Calling The Shots 30m out for a maiden win at his 28th start. He's capable of a big run over this trip. Well-backed Calling The Shots found one too good after rushing to the front 250m out following a prominent run on the fence. He was suited dropping in class from a good gate with a switch to the Valley. Mutual Joy just snatched third following a dream run on the leader's back. He is well rated off his current mark. Favourite Lucky Shiny Day got going late to just miss a placing after a patient ride third from the back. It was another honest run but he struggles to win. Kwaichung Brothers stuck on all right following a midfield run on the fence. The Joy Of Giving got going without menacing from the rear of the field over an inadequate trip. Let's Come Back was stopping 150m out after finding the front 1,300m out from a wide gate. He seems to act better on the dirt.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (115) - GLORY STAR HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

K Teetan (WONDERFUL TIGER) was fined $2,000 for failing to present himself in the Parade Ring by the required time.

On arrival at the Start, J Moreira (LUCKY SHINY DAY) informed the Veterinary Officer that the horse had shaken its head on a number of occasions when proceeding to the barriers.

The Veterinary Officer reported that after inspecting LUCKY SHINY DAY and after consulting with Jockey Moreira, the horse was found to be suitable to race.

ROCKAGE began awkwardly and lost ground.

CALLING THE SHOTS shifted in at the start and hampered DOCTORS DELIGHT.

From wide barriers, VIRTUS STAR and THE JOY OF GIVING were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

LUCKY SHINY DAY was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the 1400 Metres, SUNNY MAJOR was steadied away from the heels of LITTLE ISLAND (C Schofield) which shifted in when not quite clear.

C Schofield was advised to ensure that he is properly clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Near the 1300 Metres, LITTLE ISLAND was left racing wide and without cover and was allowed to improve its position approaching and passing the 1000 Metres.

After the 1200 Metres, DOCTORS DELIGHT was momentarily awkwardly placed between MUTUAL JOY and LITTLE ISLAND.

For some distance approaching and passing the 800 Metres, MUTUAL JOY and CALLING THE SHOTS raced in restricted room inside LITTLE ISLAND (C Schofield) which, after improving forward of CALLING THE SHOTS, shifted in.

Then near the 600 Metres, CALLING THE SHOTS was steadied away from the heels of LITTLE ISLAND.

In this incident, CALLING THE SHOTS bumped the hindquarters of MUTUAL JOY.

In the circumstances, C Schofield was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he either leaves comfortable racing room for runners to his inside or ensures he is properly clear when shifting ground.

Near the 650 Metres, DOCTORS DELIGHT was left racing wide and without cover and then near the 500 Metres was taken wider by CALLING THE SHOTS which shifted to the outside of LITTLE ISLAND.

At the entrance to the Straight, MUTUAL JOY was shifted out away from the heels of LET'S COME BACK.

After the 300 Metres, ROCKAGE was shifted out a number of horses to obtain clear running.

In the Straight, WONDERFUL TIGER lay in under pressure.

A veterinary inspection of LET'S COME BACK immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

LUCKY SHINY DAY, WONDERFUL TIGER and CALLING THE SHOTS were sent for sampling.
