Recap by phillip woo

All Best Friends came with a perfectly timed run from towards the rear to win a blanket finish. The veteran did produce a positive run trying the Valley mile three back in a higher grade so a victory was not a surprise. Favourite Tailor Made rallied well after a one-off trip in midfield to make it a thriller on the wire following a stable change. He had been racing well and a win is around the corner. Well-backed late, Nitro Express found a couple just too good in the final few metres after poking his head in front close to home following a prominent run. It was another honest performance. Fairy Floss succumbed late assuming the lead 350m out after working forward three-wide to stalk the leader Baby Storm 900m out. It was a good effort in defeat. Big Bang Bong came from midfield to just miss a top-four spot. It was his best run this campaign but father time is getting the better of him. Galaxy Racer left things too late after biding his time third from the rear. He's limited. Happy Hour ran on without menacing widest out from the rear of the field. He's not genuine.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (470) - TIN LOK HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

ALL BEST FRIENDS was slow to begin and then was bumped by TAILOR MADE which shifted in.

HUMBLE STEED got its head up on jumping and then was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 1000 Metres, LUCKY TURBO was left racing wide and without cover.

Approaching the 800 Metres, GALAXY RACER commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed behind TAILOR MADE.

Passing the 400 Metres, HAPPY HOUR shifted out abruptly away from the heels of STRAPPING BAUHINIA.

Near the 350 Metres, CAN'T TOUCH THIS momentarily raced tight inside FAIRY FLOSS.

Passing the 300 Metres, GALAXY RACER raced tight outside ALL BEST FRIENDS which shifted out to improve to the outside of TAILOR MADE which was racing tight outside NITRO EXPRESS.

GALAXY RACER and ALL BEST FRIENDS again raced tight passing the 200 Metres.

Passing the 50 Metres, GALAXY RACER got its head on the side and lay in and proved difficult to ride over the concluding stages.

Close to the finishing line, TAILOR MADE and ALL BEST FRIENDS bumped.

When questioned, B Shinn stated that he was instructed to ride FAIRY FLOSS in a midfield position or behind midfield from barrier 8.

He said FAIRY FLOSS began well without being ridden along and he immediately took hold of his mount with a view to steadying it to obtain cover.

He said, in his opinion, the tempo of the race in the early stages was only moderate and when he observed STRAPPING BAUHINIA, which was drawn immediately to the inside of FAIRY FLOSS, being aggressively ridden, he elected to shift over with that horse and take advantage of the moderate tempo and obtain a trailing position in front of midfield.

He said he continued to follow STRAPPING BAUHINIA forward passing the winning post on the first occasion, however, when NITRO EXPRESS improved its position inside STRAPPING BAUHINIA and STRAPPING BAUHINIA was then steadied to allow both BABY STORM and CAN'T TOUCH THIS to improve, this resulted in FAIRY FLOSS being left in a three wide position behind the speed.

He added near the 1050 Metres FAIRY FLOSS was left racing without cover when CAN'T TOUCH THIS improved to be racing outside of BABY STORM and rather than continue to race in a three wide position without cover, he allowed FAIRY FLOSS to improve its position to eventually race outside BABY STORM when CAN'T TOUCH THIS improved forward of that horse near the 900 Metres.

He said the circumstances of the race and, in particular the tempo of the race in the early stages, resulted in FAIRY FLOSS racing in a more forward position this evening.

A veterinary inspection of BABY STORM and STRAPPING BAUHINIA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of LUCKY TURBO immediately following the race found that horse to have blood at the mouth.

ALL BEST FRIENDS and TAILOR MADE were sent for sampling.
