Recap by phillip woo

Sprint Forward kept on gamely for the win after surging to the lead 200m out despite a three-deep run without cover near the speed from a tricky gate. The win was forthcoming after narrowly missing out in two prior starts. Well-backed late Smart Charade came from last and widest out to finish a close second. He's capable on his day and rare appearance at the Valley nearly paid out. Daily Beauty kept on well to place with a move 500m out following a deep run five back. It was another honest effort with a step back to the 1,200m. Noble Man kept on a non-threatening fourth after a deep run with cover in midfield from a wide gate. He's shown spark in his past two runs. Jade Theatre came up flat over the last 100m following a rail run worse than midfield. He's having trouble recapturing his best form. Happily Friends stayed on without threatening following a one-off run fore of midfield. He wasn't able to back up a near win last time out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (199) - OI MAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

FLYING PHOTOS was crowded for room on jumping between NOBLE MAN and GINTOKI which was taken out by SPRINT FORWARD which shifted out after being brushed by WON BALL.

After this, FLYING PHOTOS was shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier and WON BALL was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

DAILY BEAUTY was crowded for room on jumping between THE BEST HERO and HAPPILY FRIENDS which shifted in.

DAILY BEAUTY then got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of HAPPILY FRIENDS a short distance later.

HAPPILY FRIENDS made the turn near the 1050 Metres very awkwardly, got its head up and raced ungenerously.

THE BEST HERO, which was following HAPPILY FRIENDS, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence and then was awkwardly placed behind HAPPILY FRIENDS.

Near the 1000 Metres, FLYING PHOTOS lay in and was steadied away from the heels of SMART CHARADE which shifted out marginally.

Near the 800 Metres, SPRINT FORWARD was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 800 Metres, HAPPILY FRIENDS got its head up when awkwardly placed behind GINTOKI.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, HAPPILY FRIENDS got its head on the side and lay out towards the heels of SPRINT FORWARD.

Passing the 450 Metres, THE BEST HERO was awkwardly placed close to the heels of NOBLE MAN when brushed by WON BALL.

BULLISH BROTHER lost its left hind plate rounding the Home Turn.

FLYING PHOTOS was held up for clear running approaching and passing the 200 Metres.

Passing the 200 Metres, WON BALL was directed to the outside of NOBLE MAN after being disappointed for running between that horse and HAPPILY FRIENDS.

WON BALL was then directed back to the inside of NOBLE MAN to continue improving a short distance later.

After the 200 Metres, BULLISH BROTHER and FANTASTIC FABIO made contact.

After the race, M Chadwick (FANTASTIC FABIO) stated that after having to ride his mount along in the early stages to take up a forward position, FANTASTIC FABIO was hampered by HAPPILY FRIENDS making the turn near the 1000 Metres.

He said he then continued forward of that horse to prevent being carried unnecessarily wide and after obtaining a trailing position behind BULLISH BROTHER, FANTASTIC FABIO was only one-paced in the early part of the Straight before giving ground over the latter stages of the race.

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

A veterinary inspection of BULLISH BROTHER, WON BALL and GINTOKI immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

WON BALL, SPRINT FORWARD and SMART CHARADE were sent for sampling.
