Recap by phillip woo

Victorious Leader showed a good turn of foot to take control 150m out after making his run three-deep with cover. He returned well rated despite filling placings in three of his final four starts. Viva Popcorn made up heaps of ground late to finish a close second after settling one from the rear following a sluggish start. He did finish off last season with two positive runs in Class Four and is crying out for a longer trip. Specked late Jolly Forever ran on well to just miss the quinella spot after settling fourth last from a wide draw. It was a solid effort over an inadequate trip at just his third start for the Michael Chang yard. Figures Two rallied well to add further value to the quartet after fading back to last after 100m from a wide draw. He lived up to an improved trial on the dirt. Off The Reel came up one-paced over the final 100m after tracking the leader General Trump one off the fence. He's not far off a bottom. Plunged late Shinealot stayed on evenly after a rails run better than midfield. He's more effective at the Valley. Favourite Formula Excel was held up early straight but found nothing when push came to shove with clear running over the last 200m following a prominent run. He needed the outing.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (1) - MOUNT PARKER HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Meters

VIVA POPCORN was slow to begin.

THIS IS CHARISMA, which was fractious in the barriers, lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and lost a considerable amount of ground.

Before being allowed to race again, THIS IS CHARISMA will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

SMART HUNTER began awkwardly.

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

From wide barriers, DAZZLING FEELING and JOLLY FOREVER were also shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Despite being ridden along for some distance in the early stages, SHANGHAI GRACE was slow to muster speed and throughout the race travelled wide and without cover.

Passing the 1200 Metres, OFF THE REEL was steadied away from the heels of GENERAL TRUMP (B Shinn) which shifted in when not quite clear.

B Shinn was advised to ensure that he is properly clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Making the first turn near the 850 Metres, JUNGLE BLAZE raced in restricted room between GENERAL TRUMP and OFF THE REEL which shifted in.

SHINEALOT and SMART HUNTER, which were following, were inconvenienced in consequence.

After the 700 Metres, SMART HUNTER lay out and was awkwardly placed inside the heels of ALL BEST FRIENDS.

Passing the 500 Metres, FIGURES TWO was awkwardly placed behind DAZZLING FEELING which was taken out by JOLLY FOREVER.

After this, DAZZLING FEELING lay out away from JOLLY FOREVER, resulting in FIGURES TWO being inconvenienced.

SHINEALOT was held up for clear running rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight.

At the 400 Metres, FORMULA EXCEL attempted to improve into tight running between OFF THE REEL and SHANGHAI GRACE which got its head on the side and lay out rounding the Home Turn.

After brushing SHANGHAI GRACE shortly after entering the Straight, FORMULA EXCEL got its head on the side and lay in and was checked when disappointed for running between OFF THE REEL and SHANGHAI GRACE (C Wong) which shifted in.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that FORMULA EXCEL had not properly established running between OFF THE REEL and SHANGHAI GRACE and that FORMULA EXCEL had contributed to the incident by laying in, nonetheless C Wong was advised that even in difficult circumstances he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground.

THIS IS CHARISMA, which was following FORMULA EXCEL, was held up for clear running behind that horse in consequence.

After the race, J Moreira stated that, in his opinion, FORMULA EXCEL's failure to finish off the race was directly attributable to having to be checked near the 400 Metres.

He said at this stage FORMULA EXCEL was travelling well and he believed that had the horse been able to obtain the run between OFF THE REEL and SHANGHAI GRACE, it would have finished in a better position.

A veterinary inspection of FORMULA EXCEL 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, FORMULA EXCEL will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Passing the 350 Metres, SHINEALOT was steadied when disappointed for running between ALL BEST FRIENDS which shifted in marginally and SHANGHAI GRACE which shifted out marginally when commencing to give ground.

A veterinary inspection of DAZZLING FEELING immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

A veterinary inspection of THIS IS CHARISMA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.


<6/9/2021 Additional Veterinary Reports>The Veterinary Surgeon reported that JUNGLE BLAZE was found to have multiple limb lameness on the morning after racing.

Before being allowed to race again, JUNGLE BLAZE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
