Recap by phillip woo

Second favourite Beauty Generation kept on gamely for the win after cruising to the front near the 150m for back-to-back wins. He hasn't been as dominant as he was last season but is still very good. Punted late Ka Ying Star stuck on well after getting his own way in front to just hold Southern Legend for second. He's capable of big runs but keeps finding one or a few too good at this level. Southern Legend came to win the race 200m out after a one-out, one-back run but found a couple just too smart. He seems to have appreciated a break in Conghua. Furore got going late to fill the frame after making his run second from the rear. It wasn't a bad run following a stable change. He's more effective over a longer trip. Odds-on favourite Waikuku did not fire after edging forward to race box-seat coming to the final bend. He ran flat in his first start following a win in January's Stewards' Cup.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (547) - THE CHAIRMAN'S TROPHY - Class G2 - 1600Meters

FURORE began only fairly.

From the outside barrier, FAT TURTLE was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of WAIKUKU, J Moreira stated that, from the inside barrier, he was able to obtain a good position behind the speed.

He said WAIKUKU travelled well until near the 550 Metres at which stage the horse came under pressure.

He said, despite being ridden along, WAIKUKU did not quicken and came under heavy pressure rounding the Home Turn.

He said at no stage did WAIKUKU respond to his riding in the early part of the Straight as it had when ridden by him in the past.

He said the most disappointing element of today's race was the fact that WAIKUKU gave ground over the final 200 Metres.

He said after the race he was not able to identify any reason for the horse's performance.

He added whilst the horse had not raced for some time, he had ridden it in two barrier trials in preparation for today's race and WAIKUKU had performed satisfactorily in both of those trials.

Mr J Size, the trainer of WAIKUKU, said that whilst the horse had done well in the stable since its last start success in January, today's disappointing performance indicated that its two most recent wins may have taken more out of the horse than thought.

He said the two barrier trials in which the horse had participated since its last start were both satisfactory and he believed that it would perform well today.

He said he will monitor WAIKUKU in the coming days to see how it pulls up after the race.

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

The performance of WAIKUKU, a last start winner and favourite for today's race, was considered unacceptable.

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

WAIKUKU, BEAUTY GENERATION and KA YING STAR were sent for sampling.
