Recap by phillip woo

Loriz was much the best after rushing to the front passing the 1,000m from an awkward gate. He relished a return to his favourite Valley 1,200m. Favourite Confucius Day was given every chance in the box-seat. He's racing well without winning. Newcomer Harmony N Home finished well to nearly grab second after making his run one off the fence behind midfield. He looks a nice sort going forward and should be effective up to 1,400m. Casimiro kept up a steady gallop to fill the frame after a one-out, one-back run. It wasn't a bad run but he might be better suited in Class Five. Good For You kept on all right following a midfield run on the fence. He's always a chance in this grade. Methane was yielding ground 100m out after a tactics change to sit outside the leader from a wide gate at the 800m. He's capable of better and should be ridden patiently next time out. Mischievous Sundae ran on without menacing after making his run fourth from the back.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (181) - DANDELION HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

SUNNY DRAGON began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped METHANE which became unbalanced after beginning awkwardly.

NUNCHUKS began only fairly.

Shortly after the start, STAR OF THEHARBOUR was steadied to obtain cover.

A short distance after the start, MISCHIEVOUS SUNDAE shifted in and bumped LORIZ.

COOLCELEB was shifted across behind runners to obtain cover in the early stages.

In the early stages, METHANE travelled wide and was left racing without cover after the 1000 Metres.

METHANE was then allowed to improve its position passing the 900 Metres and shifted in to race outside the lead passing the 700 Metres at which stage SUNNY DRAGON was left racing wide and without cover.

Approaching the first turn, STAR OF THEHARBOUR got its head on the side and shifted in away from JUNZI (K C Leung) and bumped NUNCHUKS.

STAR OF THEHARBOUR then commenced to prove very difficult to settle and shifted out abruptly away from the heels of JUNZI which got its head on the side and lay in across the heels of HARMONY N HOME.

This resulted in NUNCHUKS, which was racing to the inside of STAR OF THEHARBOUR, being inconvenienced and MISCHIEVOUS SUNDAE being shifted out when STAR OF THEHARBOUR shifted out abruptly across the heels of JUNZI.

After this, STAR OF THEHARBOUR continued to travel keenly.

K C Leung was advised that whilst the racing manners of both STAR OF THEHARBOUR and JUNZI had played a large part in this incident, nonetheless he must ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground.

Approaching the 800 Metres, GOOD FOR YOU was awkwardly placed behind CONFUCIUS DAY.

After the 800 Metres, HARMONY N HOME commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CASIMIRO until passing the 600 Metres.

Near the 450 Metres, GOOD FOR YOU momentarily raced tight inside CASIMIRO which got its head on the side and lay in away from SUNNY DRAGON.

STAR OF THEHARBOUR lay in and was reluctant to shift to the outside of runners in the early part of the Straight.

U Rispoli (NUNCHUKS) was reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels all the way to the end of the race where appropriate circumstances permit.

A veterinary inspection of COOLCELEB immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

A veterinary inspection of MISCHIEVOUS SUNDAE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

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

LORIZ and CONFUCIUS DAY were sent for sampling.
