Recap by phillip woo

Nuremburg just held off Hay Run after leading as expected from gate four for a first win at his 14th start. He put the writing on the wall two back over this same trip. Hay Run was closing with every stride after enjoying all favours in the box-seat. He nearly took full advantage of gate one with a return to the course and distance of a win in November. Young Glory got up in the last stride to snatch third from The Joy Of Giving after travelling four back on the fence. The Valley 2,200m is his preferred course and distance and he appeared to relish the two-month break. The Joy Of Giving peaked on his run 100m out following a handy run. Age is getting the better of him. Sky Gem made some ground without ever looking a threat following a one-off run in midfield. He had not stepped out since early February and likely needed the run. Amazing Agility got going late from towards the rear to just miss the frame. It wasn't a bad effort on the back of a near 2,000m win. Fortune Patrol's move from last at the 900m after jumping tardily from a wide gate ended 200m out. He's better suited over the 1,800m or even 2,000m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (508) - WILTSHIRE HANDICAP - Class 5 - 2200Meters

RIGHTEOUS WIN was withdrawn on 16.3.21 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right hind) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter AMAZING AGILITY.

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

At the time of declaration, A Hamelin notified a probable overweight of 2 lbs in respect of THE JOY OF GIVING's allocated weight of 115 lbs.

A Hamelin then weighed in an additional 1 lb overweight, resulting in Jockey Hamelin weighing in 3 lbs over the horse's allocated weight.

Jockey Hamelin was fined the sum of $7,500.

SKY GEM was crowded for room on jumping between NUREMBERG and THE JOY OF GIVING which was bumped and taken wider by HAY RUN.

FORTUNE PATROL was slow to begin and then from the outside barrier was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

JOY N FUN LEGEND began only fairly.

Shortly after the start, YOUNG GLORY and ENJOYABLE SUCCESS bumped.

From a wide barrier, AMAZING AGILITY was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the 2100 Metres, SKY GEM raced tight outside THE JOY OF GIVING when being steadied to obtain cover behind that horse.

Passing the 1900 Metres, JOY N FUN LEGEND commenced to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of ENJOYABLE SUCCESS.

JOY N FUN LEGEND then continued to travel keenly and lay out making the turn near the 1800 Metres.

After this, JOY N FUN LEGEND travelled wide and without cover for the remainder of the race.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, JOLLY FOREVER and YOUNG GLORY raced tight.

Approaching the 800 Metres, JOLLY FOREVER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SKY GEM.

Passing the 400 Metres, SKY GEM was shifted out away from the heels of CAN'T TOUCH THIS which was giving ground.

Passing the 300 Metres, SKY GEM was awkwardly placed inside the heels of FORTUNE PATROL.

After the 200 Metres, ENJOYABLE SUCCESS lay out under pressure.

H N Wong (JOLLY FOREVER) was fined the sum of $5,000 for using the whip on that horse after the 100 Metres when it was out of contention.

The Stewards took into consideration that H N Wong had been spoken to earlier this year regarding his use of the whip on a horse out of contention.

A veterinary inspection of CAN'T TOUCH THIS, SOCKET ELITE, FORTUNE PATROL and JOY N FUN LEGEND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SKY GEM, NUREMBERG and HAY RUN were sent for sampling.
