Recap by phillip woo

E Star quickened brilliantly to get up in deep stretch after peeling into the open 400m out following a one-off run behind midfield to ring up a fifth win from 21 starts. He had put the writing on the wall last start with a step up to today's trip. Heza Beauty finished well after taking his chances along the inside from behind midfield to easily grab second. He's racing very well. Ka Ying Excellent grudgingly gave way after being hustled to lead from a wide gate. He naturally improved on a one-paced fifth last month and should get away with a race shortly. True Legend just failed to get up for third after a prominent run. He's run with merit in each of his three starts this term. Pure Legend closed well to just miss a Quartet spot after straightening one from the rear. He's returned an improved runner. Angle Of My Eyes ran on without menacing widest out after a patient ride fourth from the rear. It was a pleasing first run in the grade following a last-start win.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (157) - HEATHER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Meters



GIFT OF LIFELINE and HEZA BEAUTY began only fairly.

PURE LEGEND and TRUE LEGEND bumped at the start.

Near the 1300 Metres, PURE LEGEND and HEZA BEAUTY raced tight.

When travelling wide and without cover, CHATER PINS proved very difficult to settle after the 1000 Metres and got its head up for some distance before being able to obtain cover behind TAKE WHAT YOU NEED near the 900 Metres.

After the 500 Metres, ANGEL OF MY EYES was awkwardly placed outside the heels of CHATER PINS which got its head on the side and shifted out away from E STAR as that horse was shifting to the outside of CHANCHENG PRINCE to obtain clear running.

Passing the 150 Metres, GIFT OF LIFELINE was directed to the inside of MARVEL DRAGON which shifted out when awkwardly placed outside the heels of TRUST ME.

Throughout the race, TAKE WHAT YOU NEED travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, Z Purton (ANGEL OF MY EYES) stated that in pre-race discussions with Mr C S Shum, the trainer of the horse, it was felt that there was good pace engaged in the race and were ANGEL OF MY EYES to be ridden to obtain a forward position from the wide barrier, too much use would have to be made of the horse and therefore ANGEL OF MY EYES may not be able to finish off the race.

He said due to the anticipated strong tempo, it was felt that the best option for ANGEL OF MY EYES was for the horse to be ridden more quietly than previously and attempt to obtain a position with cover in about midfield.

He said after shifting ANGEL OF MY EYES across in the early stages he was able to obtain a position behind CHATER PINS behind midfield.

He said after obtaining clear running in the Straight ANGEL OF MY EYES finished off the race only fairly given that PURE LEGEND in particular was able to come from behind ANGEL OF MY EYES to finish in advance of his mount.

He added, given that ANGEL OF MY EYES was having only its 5th race start today, he was unsure as to whether ANGEL OF MY EYES' disappointing performance was attributable to the horse being ridden more quietly than it previously had been.

A veterinary inspection of immediately GIFT OF LIFELINE, MARVEL DRAGON, CHANCHENG PRINCE and TRUST ME following the race did not show any significant findings.

ANGEL OF MY EYES, E STAR and HEZA BEAUTY were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

After the running of Race 2, the track classification was officially changed from "Good??to "Good to Firm?? This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective.

As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 2 being run on a track rated "Good to Firm?? 2.

28 October 2020 Happy Valley Racemeeting a.

Race 8 (146) The Stewards today questioned Z Purton regarding the disappointing performance of TORNADO TWIST.

He said TORNADO TWIST began better than expected and he was able to take up a good position.

He said passing the 700 Metres he had hoped to be able to improve to the outside of TELECOM JAC, however, LE TERROIR was racing to his outside and maintaining its position at this time which resulted in him not being able to shift out.

He said rounding the Home Turn he improved to the inside of TELECOM JAC, however, TORNADO TWIST appeared reluctant to improve amongst runners and then was disappointing in its failure to finish off the race in the Straight.

b.

Race 9 (147) Mr C S Shum, the trainer of AMAZING ONE PLUS, today confirmed that it was intended for the horse to follow RELIABLE TEAM in the early stages if possible.

He said because of the circumstances of the race AMAZING ONE PLUS was ridden in a more forward position and, in his opinion, this, together with the horse subsequently found to be lame in its right front leg, accounted for its failure to finish off the race.

He added whilst AMAZING ONE PLUS was ridden in a more prominent position than had been intended in this race, if the appropriate circumstances exist in its future starts, it would be his intention to have the horse ridden in about a midfield position if possible.
