Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late Ping Hai Bravo quickened nicely to get up in the dying stages after travelling fourth last on the far side to make it back-to-back wins following a switch to the straight 1,000m. He'll likely remain in the grade. Valiant Dream dashed nicely to make it close on the wire after making his run behind midfield on the stands side. It was a good effort with a return to the races following a lameness issue in October. First Responder was swamped late after moving to the front 80m out following a handy run in the middle of the track. He's capable of a big run. Well-backed late Cruising faded after getting pressured for the lead to finish a distant fourth. The big weight was too much to overcome. Metro Warrior was next best after chasing the speed on the stands side. It was another honest effort over this course and distance. Dancing Fighter came up flat over the final 150m after recovering from a slightly tardy break to vie for the lead 600m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (246) - CAMERON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Meters

FIRST RESPONDER began awkwardly.

DANCING FIGHTER began awkwardly and then was bumped by LITTLE BIRD which shifted out.

DANCING FIGHTER then raced in restricted room inside JOYFUL FORTUNE for a short distance.

NORTHERN SUPERSTAR shifted out at the start and was steadied away from the heels of METRO WARRIOR which shifted in on jumping.

GOOD LUCK CHARM got it head up on jumping, began awkwardly and then was bumped by GOOD BEAUTY which shifted out.

After the 600 Metres, CRUISING got its head on the side and lay in.

Near the 450 Metres, DANCING FIGHTER shifted out and bumped JOYFUL FORTUNE.

After this, DANCING FIGHTER raced greenly and shifted ground on a number of occasions.

Passing the 100 Metres, METRO WARRIOR raced tight outside CRUISING.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of JOYFUL FORTUNE, Apprentice C L Chau stated that he was asked to ride the horse where it was comfortable in the early stages and not to make too much use of it to obtain a forward position.

He said JOYFUL FORTUNE began well and he was able to obtain a prominent position without having to make any use of the horse.

He said passing the 600 Metres he niggled at JOYFUL FORTUNE to ensure that it maintained its position outside DANCING FIGHTER which was looking to improve forward of JOYFUL FORTUNE.

He said after the 600 Metres JOYFUL FORTUNE was travelling well and was able to establish a small margin over DANCING FIGHTER, however, then came under heavy pressure and he had to ride the horse aggressively after the 400 Metres.

He said JOYFUL FORTUNE gave him a limited response before coming under heavy pressure passing the 300 Metres.

He added over the concluding stages JOYFUL FORTUNE was most disappointing in the manner in which it gave ground.

He said after the race he was not able to identify any reason for the disappointing performance of JOYFUL FORTUNE.

Mr D J Hall, the trainer of JOYFUL FORTUNE, confirmed the instructions given to Apprentice Chau and was not able to offer any explanation for the horse's disappointing performance.

He said the horse had trained on well since its last start and a forward showing was expected today.

He said the only reason he could find for the horse's failure to finish off the race was the fact that it may not have handled the pressure of having to race amongst horses.

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

The performance of JOYFUL FORTUNE, favourite for today's race and which finished at the rear of the field, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, JOYFUL FORTUNE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of NORTHERN SUPERSTAR, DANCING FIGHTER and GOOD LUCK CHARM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
