Recap by phillip woo

Bulletproof quickened nicely to win going away 300m out after a perfectly-executed ride one off fore of midfield. He had been knocking on the door. Punted late Decisive Action finished well widest out after a patient ride from an outside draw to grab second 100m out without menacing the winner. He was able to get on track with a return to Class Four here. Favourite Seaweed Fortune rallied well to grab a placing close to home after settling third from the rear. He's racing well and the step up to a mile was not an issue. Indigenous Star stayed on well to fill the frame after being held up for a run along the inside until the 200m following a rail run fourth from the rear. Kungfumaster Panda just failed to fill the frame after settling behind midfield on the fence. It was his best run to date. Circuit Number One only plodded over the final 150m after a prominent run along the fence. Fast Pace was a non-factor after a wide without cover run in midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (114) - TAI WAI HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1600Meters

LEADING FORTUNE shifted out at the start and bumped ALLOY STAR, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

EZRA began awkwardly.

SALTO OLIMPICO and DECISIVE ACTION bumped at the start.

Shortly after the start, PRETTY BAUHINIA and EZRA made contact.

From the outside barriers, SALTO OLIMPICO and HAPPY WIN WIN were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1400 Metres, DECISIVE ACTION was awkwardly placed inside the heels of HAPPY WIN WIN.

After the 1000 Metres, PRETTY BAUHINIA was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 800 Metres, FAST PACE was left racing wide and without cover.

INDIGENOUS STAR had some difficulty obtaining clear running passing the 350 Metres.

Passing the 250 Metres, HAPPY WIN WIN was steadied when crowded for room between SEAWEED FORTUNED which shifted out away from FAST PACE and DECISIVE ACTION which shifted in marginally before being corrected.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that, from the wide barrier, he was instructed to ride DECISIVE ACTION patiently in the early stages to have the horse finish off the race better than it had been recently.

He said in a number of races when ridden to take up a forward position, DECISIVE ACTION had not closed off and it was therefore felt that riding it more conservatively from the wide barrier would provide the horse with the best opportunity to race well.

He added however he is of the view that DECISIVE ACTION can also be ridden in a more prominent position, given a good barrier and if the circumstances of the race allow.

After the race.

A Hamelin explained that he was asked to ride EZRA positively from barrier 9 and obtain a position behind the leaders if possible.

He said after having to ride his mount along for some distance in the early stages to cross PRETTY BAUHINIA, EZRA then travelled keenly when racing outside the lead in the middle stages.

He said because of the amount of use that he had to make of EZRA, combined with the horse then not settling, EZRA was consequently not able to finish off the race.

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

A veterinary inspection of METHANE and CIRCUIT NUMBER ONE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SEAWEED FORTUNE, BULLETPROOF and DECISIVE ACTION were sent for sampling.
