Recap by phillip woo

Best Alliance just out-duelled Cinquante Cinq after hitting the front 100m out following a one-off run behind midfield. He's capable on his day and didn't have an easy time in each of his opening two failures this term. Cinquante Cinq just failed to get up near the inside after a patient ride fifth from the rear. He's always a chance over this Valley trip. Leap Of Faith stuck on very well for third after a prominent run without cover. It was a very good first effort at the course. Favourite Naboo Star got going late down the outside after settling fourth last following a sluggish start. He wasn't beaten far but the big weight seemed to anchor him following a last start win. Flying Sword peaked on his run 100m out after looming a winning chance 150m out following a one-off run better than midfield. Brave King ran on without menacing from towards the rear. It was a typical run. Prince of Frog was swamped 100m out after finding the front from a wide gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (143) - THE LONGINES CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1650Meters


From a wide barrier, SUMSTREETSUMWHERE was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Approaching the 900 Metres, SUMSTREETSUMWHERE and CHAMPION SUPREME bumped.

Approaching the 200 Metres, FLYING SWORD was held up for clear running behind PRINCE OF FROG and inside SUPERBELLA.

Passing the 200 Metres, SUPERBELLA and FLYING SWORD (Z Purton) raced tight as FLYING SWORD improved into very tight running between SUPERBELLA and PRINCE OF FROG.

SUPERBELLA was then steadied near the 150 Metres when crowded for room between FLYING SWORD and CINQUANTE CINQ which shifted in marginally.

In this incident, CINQUANTE CINQ became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by SUPERBELLA.

Z Purton was advised to exercise more care when improving into tight runs in similar circumstances.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that in the early stages he commenced to shift LEAP OF FAITH across behind runners firstly behind SUPERBELLA and then behind FLYING SWORD to obtain cover one horse off the rail.

He said due to the circumstances of the race in the early stages he was not able to steady LEAP OF FAITH sufficiently to shift in behind FLYING SWORD which provided the opportunity for BEST ALLIANCE to be ridden along to obtain the position one horse off the rail inside LEAP OF FAITH.

He said this resulted in LEAP OF FAITH being left racing wide and without cover approaching the 1300 Metres.

He said he attempted to obtain a position behind REGENCY BO BO after the 1200 Metres, however, FLYING SWORD maintained its position to his inside which resulted in LEAP OF FAITH continuing to race wide and without cover.

He said he considered allowing LEAP OF FAITH to stride forward after the 1000 Metres, but he noticed that REGENCY BO BO was travelling keenly in advance of LEAP OF FAITH one horse off the rail and he felt that if he allowed LEAP OF FAITH to improve its position at this time, REGENCY BO BO may improve its position with LEAP OF FAITH which would result in him having to make use of LEAP OF FAITH but continue to have to race wide and without cover.

He added as LEAP OF FAITH was racing at Happy Valley for the first time tonight, he elected to remain racing in a three wide position but have the horse travelling comfortably so that it could finish off the race as best as it was able.

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

NABOO STAR, BEST ALLIANCE and CINQUANTE CINQ were sent for sampling.
