Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late, Solar Wai Wai served it up to odds-on favourite and leader Bear Again at the 550m, made the lead his own upon straightening and just held off Savvy Nine for the win in a class record time. Savvy Nine ran on well after peeling off the tiring leader Bear Again 150m out to make it close following a rails run behind midfield. Bear Again just held on for a placing after going a bit too hard in front. It wasn't a bad run in defeat after having to absorb a 13-point penalty for a last-start win. Rule Thee closed well from near last to nearly place. He appears from his past two starts to be near a bottom. Mongolian Legend had his chance following a prominent run on the fence. He's on his mark following a win three back on the dirt. Magnificent came up one-paced following a one-out, one-back run. You can put a pen through the run of Triumphant Horse, who was posted wide and without cover in midfield the entire trip from an awkward gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (339) - EDINBURGH HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Meters

WARM THE VOICE was withdrawn on 14.1.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore).

Before being allowed to race again, WARM THE VOICE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

COMFORT LIFE and BEAUTY ICON bumped at the start.

After this, COMFORT LIFE was steadied to obtain a position with cover from a wide barrier.

SAVVY NINE and RULE THEE were also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, RULE THEE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of LONDON LUCKYSTAR which was steadied to obtain cover.

After the 1300 Metres, TRIUMPHANT HORSE was left racing wide and without cover.

After the 900 Metres, MAGNIFICENT commenced to prove very difficult to settle and was awkwardly placed behind SOLAR WAI WAI.

MAGNIFICENT continued to travel keenly and approaching the 700 Metres shifted out away from behind SOLAR WAI WAI, resulting in TRIUMPHANT HORSE being taken wider.

When MAGNIFICENT (H T Mo) was shifted out, ANONYMA improved to be racing to the inside of MAGNIFICENT.

MAGNIFICENT and TRIUMPHANT HORSE then raced tight and when MAGNIFICENT did not maintain its positon between SOLAR WAI WAI and TRIUMPHANT HORSE, TRIUMPHANT HORSE then resumed its positon three wide outside SOLAR WAI WAI which resulted in MAGNIFICENT, which was continuing to travel strongly, being taken in and causing ANONYMA to be crowded for some distance.

In this incident, SAVVY NINE, which was racing inside ANONYMA, raced tight and became unbalanced.

H T Mo was advised that, in the opinion of the Stewards, this incident resulted from his failure to be assertive and establish his position to the outside of SOLAR WAI WAI.

He was told that he must make every endeavour to consolidate his position so as to ensure that he places his mounts in the best position to improve and also to ensure that other horses around him are not adversely affected.

At the entrance to the Straight, BEAR AGAIN and SOLAR WAI WAI brushed.

Passing the 200 Metres, TRIUMPHANT HORSE was steadied when racing in restricted room between MAGNIFICENT and MONGOLIAN LEGEND which shifted out.

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

BEAR AGAIN, SOLAR WAI WAI and SAVVY NINE were sent for sampling.
