Recap by phillip woo

Beauty Happy repelled all challenges after hitting the front near the 200m working hard to sit outside the leader World Famous from the middle draw. The light weight helped but it was a total reversal of form after failing to earn a cheque in seven other starts. Blastoise ran on well near the inside to finish a close second after a handy run on the fence. Golden Spectrum finished well down the outside after a patient ride fifth from the back to out-bob Good Omen for third just behind the Quinella pair. Good Omen stayed on well to just finish out of the placings after travelling nicely under Zac Purton in the box-seat. Post-time favourite World Famous was swamped late after dictating the run. The big weight took its toll. Punted late Red Elysees ran on steadily without menacing following a rail run in midfield. Early favourite Above came up flat after a one-off run in midfield. He's more effective over a longer trip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (658) - MA KONG SHAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Meters

CINQUANTE CINQ was withdrawn on 12.5.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (swollen right hind fetlock) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter GOOD OMEN (Z Purton).

Before being allowed to race again, CINQUANTE CINQ will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

BLASTOISE shifted out at the start and inconvenienced GOLDEN SPECTRUM.

DYNAMIC EAGLE began very awkwardly and shortly after the start was shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier.

From the outside barriers, STIMULATION and DIVINE UNICORN were steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

In the early stages, VINCY was steadied to obtain cover.

After being ridden along for a considerable distance in the early stages, BEAUTY HAPPY was steadied away from the heels of GOOD OMEN (Z Purton) which shifted in approaching the winning post on the first occasion.

Z Purton was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

When being steadied away from the heels of GOOD OMEN, BEAUTY HAPPY shifted in and made contact with ACCLAIMED LIGHT.

BEAUTY HAPPY was then left racing wide and without cover until passing the 1100 Metres.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, GOLDEN SPECTRUM momentarily raced tight inside ABOVE which shifted in.

After the 1100 Metres, DYNAMIC EAGLE commenced to travel keenly.

After the race, J Moreira reported that ABOVE came under pressure after the 500 Metres and then finished off the race only one-paced in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of ABOVE immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

A veterinary inspection of ACCLAIMED LIGHT and STIMULATION immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

WORLD FAMOUS, BEAUTY HAPPY and BLASTOISE were sent for sampling.
