Recap by phillip woo

Hot King Prawn just held on after rushing to the front 60m out following a box-seat run. He had been knocking on the door against the best sprinters and it was a terrific win carrying top weight. Thanks Forever finished strongly to make it close on the wire after making his run at the rear following a slow start. He's a potential star of the future. Mr Stunning ran on nicely after a prominent run to finish a close third. He's not getting any younger but he's been a terrific servant of the stable. Specked late Voyage Warrior found a few too good in the end after moving to the front 250m out stalking the leader Country Star to his outside. It was one of his better 1,200m efforts but he relished the light weight. Big Party had his chance following a midfield run. He'll need to find on this performance if he is to stack up against the best sprinters.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (475) - CHEK LAP KOK HANDICAP - Class 1 - 1200Meters

THANKS FOREVER began only fairly and then was steadied away from the heels of VOYAGE WARRIOR on jumping.

Near the 50 Metres, FULL OF BEAUTY was momentarily awkwardly placed outside the heels of MR STUNNING.

When questioned regarding the performance of BIG PARTY, G van Niekerk stated that after shifting in to race on the rail behind the eventual winner HOT KING PRAWN in the early stages, BIG PARTY appeared reluctant to maintain its position when initially racing in restricted room inside MR STUNNING passing the 850 Metres.

He said he had to ride BIG PARTY along to maintain its position inside MR STUNNING after this, however, BIG PARTY did not appear to be comfortable when racing in this position.

He said he shifted BIG PARTY to the outside of runners passing the 400 Metres, however, the horse did not quicken as it had when ridden by him in the past and finished off the race only one-paced.

He added BIG PARTY had barrier trialed well in the lead up to today's race on 25 February 2020 and that perhaps there had not been enough time between that trial and today's race as the trial was a hard one given that BIG PARTY had missed the start.

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

BIG PARTY, HOT KING PRAWN and THANKS FOREVER were sent for sampling.
