Recap by phillip woo

Racing Fighter mowed down Handsome Bo Bo 30m out for the win after a handy run on the fence. He relished a return to Class Three with his favourite rider Zac Purton on top. Punted late, Handsome Bo Bo found one too good after clearing to the front 700m out from a wide gate. He's sprinting very well at the Valley this season. Favourite, Kurpany got going to finish a non-threatening third after getting shuffled back to travel one-off behind midfield. It was an encouraging effort trying a longer trip after a second win last start over the 1,000m. Punted late, Hinchinlove gradually faded after tracking the leader. It was a decent effort carrying more weight following a win at Sha Tin. The Runner kept on all right after a wide without cover run better than midfield to earn a pay slip. He just isn't good enough at this level. Falcon Turbo made some ground without threatening after a one-off run worse than midfield. It was another honest effort. Scores Of Fun never landed a blow travelling midfield on the fence. The quick back-up off a win last week carrying top weight in a tougher contest took its toll.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (458) - SING WOO HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

SCORES OF FUN shifted out at the start, resulting in KURPANY being crowded for room and taken out onto FALCON TURBO.

This also caused SCORES OF FUN to become unbalanced and to shift out further.

SINCERE BOY began awkwardly.

From an outside barrier, SMART LEADER was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 1050 Metres, RACING FIGHTER and PRESIDENT'S CHOICE bumped, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, PRESIDENT'S CHOICE got its head on the side and lay out across the heels of RACING FIGHTER, resulting in FALCON TURBO being crowded for room inside THE RUNNER.

SCORES OF FUN, which was following PRESIDENT'S CHOICE, was steadied away from that horse in consequence and in doing so shifted out, resulting in KURPANY shifting out and bumping the hindquarters of MASSIVE POCKET.

Near the 450 Metres, RACING FIGHTER momentarily raced in restricted room between HINCHINLOVE and ETERNAL BEAUTY.

Passing the 300 Metres, KURPANY, which was held up, was directed to the inside of FALCON TURBO to obtain clear running.

Throughout the race, ETERNAL BEAUTY travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SCORES OF FUN, V Borges stated that it was intended for the horse to be ridden in a forward position.

He said after beginning awkwardly, he rode SCORES OF FUN along for some distance in the early stages, however, the horse did not show any early speed as anticipated.

He said making the turn after the 1100 Metres SCORES OF FUN was awkwardly placed outside the heels of RACING FIGHTER when being steadied in an attempt to obtain a trailing position behind that horse.

He said SCORES OF FUN commenced to travel keenly passing the 1000 Metres before settling and then travelling satisfactorily in the middle stages.

He said at the entrance to the Straight he was able to obtain clear running inside PRESIDENT'S CHOICE, however, SCORES OF FUN did not quicken as he had hoped.

He added in the Straight SCORES OF FUN finished off the race only fairly and, in his opinion, was disappointing.

A veterinary inspection of SCORES OF FUN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of SINCERE BOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of MASSIVE POCKET immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

KURPANY, RACING FIGHTER and HANDSOME BO BO were sent for sampling.
