Recap by phillip woo

Happy Good Guys got the head down when it mattered most to edge U W Brother following a one-out, one-back run. The writing had been on the wall last start. The well supported U W Brother nearly made all after leading from a middle draw. He's racing very well. Travel Datuk just found a couple too good after a box-set run. He's as honest as the day is long but has trouble saluting. Tom's Style finished nicely from towards the rear to fill the frame. It has taken him a few runs to find his feet but he does appear to be heading in the right direction now. You can forget the effort of Viva Chef, who kept on all right after a wide run without cover better than midfield the entire trip. Happily Friends gradually faded after stalking the speed from a wide gate. He might be near a bottom. Favourite United We Stand never landed a blow travelling keenly in midfield in his initial Valley start. He should stick to the straight 1,000m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (289) - JUPITER HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Meters

NEXTMODEL was withdrawn on 22.12.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter AFTER ME (H W Lai).

Before being allowed to race again, NEXTMODEL will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

WINNER'S HEART lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and consequently missed the start.

VIVA CHEF jumped in at the start and made contact with AFTER ME.

From wide barriers, TOM'S STYLE and SEA ELITE were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

UNITED WE STAND began awkwardly and lost ground at the start.

When being vigorously ridden to take up a forward position, UNITED WE STAND was momentarily crowded for room inside HAPPY GOOD GUYS which shifted in after travelling a short distance.

After leaving the 900 Metres, UNITED WE STAND again raced in restricted room inside the heels of HAPPY GOOD GUYS which shifted in marginally.

Then for some distance after this, UNITED WE STAND got its head up and travelled keenly when being steadied when it remained awkwardly placed inside the heels of HAPPY GOOD GUYS (C Soumillon) which shifted in slightly.

C Soumillon was advised that whilst the racing manners of UNITED WE STAND had exacerbated the incident and that near the 700 Metres he was not in a position to relieve the tightening due to HAPPILY FRIENDS racing tight to its outside, nonetheless in similar circumstances he would be expected to afford runners to his inside comfortable racing room.

VIVA CHEF raced wide and without cover from the 800 Metres.

When being steadied away from the heels of BOND A STAR after the 600 Metres, TOM'S STYLE shifted out and made contact with WINNER'S HEART, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

After making contact with UNITED WE STAND making the Home Turn, BOND A STAR became unbalanced, shifted in, brushed the running rail and consequently lost ground.

After racing greenly, hanging in and proving difficult to settle in the early part of the Straight, SEA ELITE was then unable to be ridden out over the final 50 Metres after improving to be racing close to the heels of UNITED WE STAND.

Passing the 300 Metres, VIVA CHEF was awkwardly placed outside the heels of HAPPY GOOD GUYS which shifted out.

Approaching the 200 Metres, BOND A STAR was inconvenienced when UNITED WE STAND shifted in.

Over the final 75 Metres, SEA ELITE was not able to be tested after improving to be racing close to the heels of UNITED WE STAND.

Approaching the 50 Metres, HAPPILY FRIENDS was momentarily steadied when HAPPY GOOD GUYS (C Soumillon) shifted in under pressure.

C Soumillon was told to ensure that he makes more of an effort to keep his mounts straight.

A veterinary inspection of UNITED WE STAND and WINNER'S HEART immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

UNITED WE STAND, HAPPY GOOD GUYS and U W BROTHER were sent for sampling.
