Recap by phillip woo

Veteran Money Winner came from last and widest out to just nail favourite Bundle Of Energy in the shadows of the post for an upset win in a suitably run race. He had been a disappointment this term but was very well rated. Bundle Of Energy quickened nicely to poke his head in front 10m from the wire after a patient ride second from the rear but was nipped on the wire. Baby Storm grudgingly gave way after straightening two lengths on top after leading from a wide gate. Punted late Hay Run stuck on reasonably well for fourth after working forward three-deep from a wide gate to eventually park one off outside the leader 900m out. It was a good run in defeat following a last start win over a longer trip. Money Marshal made some ground to earn a minor cheque despite covering ground in midfield after jumping slowly. Bring It On was steadied by the leader early on but only plodded with every chance following a box-seat run.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (820) - YUEN YUEN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Meters

MONEY MARSHAL began only fairly and then lost ground when crowded for room between POLYMER LUCK and MONEY WINNER which shifted out.

JOY N FUN LEGEND and TURF BRILLIANT were crowded for room on jumping between BRING IT ON and KEEP WINNING which shifted in.

After this, JOY N FUN LEGEND and TURF BRILLIANT raced tight for a short distance, resulting in JOY N FUN LEGEND being awkwardly placed outside the heels of BRING IT ON.

From a wide barrier, BUNDLE OF ENERGY was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

SUCCESS ALLSTARS was also steadied shortly after the start to obtain cover.

Approaching and passing the winning post on the first occasion, JOY N FUN LEGEND proved very difficult to settle and got its head up for some distance when being checked away from the heels of KEEP WINNING.

When proving very difficult to settle, JOY N FUN LEGEND got its head on the side and shifted out, resulting in TURF BRILLIANT racing tight inside the heels of GREAT SMART.

Having regard to JOY N FUN LEGEND having previously been reported to be difficult to settle, the Stewards ruled that prior to being permitted to race again, the horse will be required to barrier trial satisfactorily around a bend.

After the 1300 Metres, TURF BRILLIANT was bumped and taken wider by JOY N FUN LEGEND which shifted out when it continued to travel keenly.

HAY RUN travelled wide and without cover until approaching the 800 Metres at which stage the horse improved its position to race outside BABY STORM.

MONEY MARSHAL was left racing wide and without cover near the 800 Metres.

In the early part of the Straight, POLYMER LUCK raced tight inside MONEY MARSHAL which lay in under pressure.

Passing the 300 Metres, KEEP WINNING was shifted to the inside of BRING IT ON to obtain clear running.

After the 50 Metres, MONEY WINNER and BUNDLE OF ENERGY brushed.

When questioned regarding the performance of GREAT SMART, M Chadwick stated that it was intended for GREAT SMART to obtain a position behind the leaders if possible from barrier 5.

He said, despite being ridden along for a considerable distance in the early stages, GREAT SMART was not able to clear runners to its inside and because of this approaching the winning post on the first occasion when racing wide, he elected to steady his mount with a view to obtaining a positon behind KEEP WINNING.

He said when JOY N FUN LEGEND shifted out from behind KEEP WINNING, this resulted in GREAT SMART racing in a three wide position until after the 1200 Metres.

He added GREAT SMART then travelled only fairly and when MONEY MARSHAL commenced to improve its position after the 600 Metres, he rode GREAT SMART along in an endeavour to follow that horse through, however, GREAT SMART did not quicken and subsequently finished off the race only one-paced.

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

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

Before being allowed to race again, TURF BRILLIANT will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

MONEY WINNER and BUNDLE OF ENERGY were sent for sampling.
