Recap by phillip woo

We The South quickly found the lead and just held off the late surge of Jazz Steed by a lip for a second win from his past three starts. The three-year-old has more improvement to come and should hold his own up in grade off a light weight. Jazz Steed showed an exhilarating burst late from behind midfield to make it a thriller on the wire. He did produce a positive run two back over this course. Everbrave kept on well for third after a one-out, one-back run. He's an exposed sort but rarely produces a bad run. Favourite Wild West Wing ran on steadily for fourth after rounding the final bend five deep following a handy run with cover. Excellent Chariot gradually gave way after stalking the speed from a wide gate. He has shown some ability in his two starts but is still learning. Forza Angel ran on late after settling behind midfield from a tricky gate. Daily Delight left things too late after settling third last from a wide draw. He requires a faster tempo.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (715) - SHELLEY HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Meters

PRAWN YEAH YEAH began only fairly.

From the outside barrier, FIRE BALL was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

From a wide barrier, DAILY DELIGHT was also steadied to obtain cover shortly after the start.

WILD WEST WING shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of WE THE SOUTH, resulting in WILD WEST WING losing ground and WE THE SOUTH becoming unbalanced.

PLAY TO WIN began only fairly.

WINNER'S HEART lost its right hind plate in the early stages.

Making the turn near the 550 Metres, EXCELLENT CHARIOT got its head on the side and lay out.

Also near the 550 Metres, WINNER'S HEART lay out and made the turn very awkwardly.

At the entrance to the Straight, OVERSUBSCRIBED was shifted out away from the heels of EXCELLENT CHARIOT in an endeavour to obtain clear running.

OVERSUBSCRIBED was then disappointed for a run between EXCELLENT CHARIOT and EVERBRAVE which shifted in passing the 250 Metres.

As K C Leung (EVERBRAVE) was commencing to use the whip after the 200 Metres, his whip inadvertently made contact with EXCELLENT CHARIOT on his inside which resulted in K C Leung losing the use of the whip.

Passing the 100 Metres, DAILY DELIGHT was shifted out away from the heels of FORZA ANGEL.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that it was intended for FORZA ANGEL to be ridden in a forward position.

He said FORZA ANGEL began satisfactorily, however, did not show as much early speed as he anticipated and when he looked to his inside shortly after the start, he established that a number of horses which were drawn more favourably were being hard ridden to obtain a forward position and appeared to showing more early speed than FORZA ANGEL.

He said he felt he would have had to make a lot of use of FORZA ANGEL to cross those horses to his inside and therefore FORZA ANGEL may not be able to finish off the race, so he elected to steady his mount approaching the 900 Metres and obtain cover behind WINNER'S HEART which was continuing to be ridden forward.

He said as he did this WINNER'S HEART was shifted in to race behind EVERBRAVE which resulted in him having to come back further behind that horse to obtain cover.

He added the circumstances of the race in the early stages resulted in FORZA ANGEL being ridden further back in the field than had been intended.

A veterinary inspection of DAILY DELIGHT immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea and also found the horse to be lame in its left front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, DAILY DELIGHT will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of WINNER'S HEART immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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

WILD WEST WING, WE THE SOUTH and JAZZ STEED were sent for sampling.
