Recap by phillip woo

Second favourite, Master Hero got the gaps when needed to get up in deep stretch after a rail run in midfield. He had put the writing on the wall twice over this trip from three other starts and can head higher. Well-backed late, Charity Grace finished nicely after getting off the winner heels late to make it close on the wire after settling last from the widest gate. He's clearly got the tools to add to a win last start. Party Genius nearly stole the race after finding the front from gate 10 under claimer Alfred Chow Chun-lok. The light weight helped his cause. Favourite Fortune Master kept on one-paced after a prominent run. The rise in weight for a last start win took the sting out of his legs. Plunged late, Breeze Of Spring ran on late down the outside after biding his time second last from a wide draw. He keeps promising without delivering. Specked late, Ultimate Glory made progress late near the outside after a wide with cover run beyond midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (366) - GLORIOUS DAYS HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Meters

On arrival at the Start, it was noted that BREEZE OF SPRING had blood in its mouth.

BREEZE OF SPRING was examined by the Veterinary Officer and found to be suitable to race.

GOLDEN FOUR was very slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, CHARITY GRACE was steadied and shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

BREEZE OF SPRING was also steadied to obtain cover from a wide barrier in the early stages.

Approaching the 1200 Metres, WISDOM PATCH was steadied away from the heels of APEX TOP which was racing tight inside FORTUNE MASTER.

At the 900 Metres, OH BRAVO was left racing wide and without cover.

Approaching the 700 Metres, BRIGHT VISION commenced to prove difficult to settle and was checked away from the heels of BRILLIANT CHINA.

BRILLIANT CHINA had difficulty obtaining clear running from on straightening until after passing the 200 Metres.

Passing the 150 Metres, GOLDEN FOUR was awkwardly placed outside the heels of BREEZE OF SPRING which shifted out to obtain clear running.

When questioned regarding his riding of CHARITY GRACE in the Straight and his reason for not pulling the whip, A Badel stated that when positioned at the rear of the field on straightening, he elected to take inside runs and commenced to ride the horse along from prior to straightening.

He said in the early part of the Straight he identified that he would follow the ultimate winner MASTER HERO and as CHARITY GRACE was making up good ground when under strong hands and heels riding, he did not believe it was necessary to pull the whip on the horse as it was clear to him that when he improved to be racing behind MASTER HERO, he would then be required to ride with some caution when improving to the outside of the heels of that horse given the placement of APEX TOP.

He added after passing the 100 Metres he continued to ride CHARITY GRACE along whilst angling out around the heels of MASTER HERO and it was not open to him to pull the whip at this stage given that APEX TOP was close outside his heels.

He said once he established clear running to the outside of MASTER HERO, this was inside the 50 Metres and as CHARITY GRACE was doing its best work under hands and heels riding, he continued to ride it out to the finishing line in this fashion.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on WISDOM PATCH at the request of Trainer P O'Sullivan.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in its trachea and also found the horse to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

A veterinary inspection of GOLDEN FOUR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
