Recap by phillip woo

Flying Monkey came on nicely to overhaul early favourite Winner's Heart 150m out for the win after a well-executed ride by Alexis Badel one-out, one-back from a tricky gate. He had been racing competitively this season over this course and distance and the win was well deserved. Winner's Heart did everything but get the win after hitting the front 200m out following a box-seat run. It was an improved effort as expected following a downgrade. Little Thunder ran on very well to finish a close third after making his run one-off the fence behind midfield. He's a winner waiting to happen if he remains in the grade. Joy Avenue made up heaps of ground late to fill the frame after travelling deep towards the rear from a wide draw. He'll be a force to be reckoned with from a better draw. Winning Warrior ran on steadily from midfield to pick up a minor cheque without ever looking a winning chance. He's shown some progress this season but is limited. Lucky Victor made some ground without threatening after a rails run behind midfield. It was a shade better effort ridden quietly on this occasion.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (527) - LUNG CHEUNG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Meters

LUCKY VICTOR began only fairly and then was crowded for room on jumping between READY CONQUEROR and WINNING WARRIOR which shifted out.

AFTER ME was bumped on jumping by I'M THE CONQUIST which shifted in.

FOR FUN'S SAKE began awkwardly and then from a wide barrier was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

From a wide barrier, JOY AVENUE was also shifted across behind runners to obtain cover in the early stages.

Approaching the 800 Metres, FOR FUN'S SAKE was shifted out away from the heels of JOY AVENUE.

WINNING WARRIOR made the turn after the 600 Metres awkwardly.

Shortly after entering the Straight, DR EQ got its head on the side and lay in and after this gave ground.

After the race, J Moreira stated that DR EQ came under heavy pressure after the 500 Metres and he was concerned how quickly it gave ground after straightening.

He said the way that DR EQ weakened indicated to him that the horse may be experiencing some internal issues.

A veterinary inspection of DR EQ immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Having regard to the manner in which DR EQ gave ground and the comments of Jockey Moreira after the race, the Stewards ruled that prior to being permitted to race again, DR EQ will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After the 50 Metres, LUCKY VICTOR raced tight inside WINNING WARRIOR which got its head on the side and lay in.

Close to the finishing line, VIVA MAMA raced tight inside LUCKY VICTOR.

A veterinary inspection of AFTER ME and I'M THE CONQUIST immediately following the race found both horses to be lame in the right front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, AFTER ME and I'M THE CONQUIST will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of VIVA MAMA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

VIVA MAMA, FLYING MONKEY and WINNER'S HEART were sent for sampling.
