Recap by phillip woo

Jumping favourite On Excel Star kept finding to easily score after a well-rated run in front by Alexis Badel. He relished a downgrade and change in stable. Happy Jai Jai kept on gamely for second after a pace-stalking run from a middle draw. It was clearly his best run to date following a change in tactics. Smart Hunter just prevailed in a blanket finish for third after settling one-out, one-back. He'll need to prove this wasn't a one-off result after showing next to nothing in 11 other starts. Anonyma just lost third in the shadows of the post after a box-seat run. He's run with merit in two of three starts this term and can bob up at any moment. This Is Charisma made headway late after a patient ride third from the rear. It was a better performance in a race run to suit those up front following a return to the Valley. M M Johnny ran on steadily to just miss a pay slip following a one-off run worse than midfield following an awkward start as the third choice in betting. He isn't far off a bottom after showing some progress in his two starts this term. Early favourite Seize The Spirit faded to finish last but had an excuse after getting posted wide without cover better than midfield after clipping heels 1,500m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (76) - O'BRIEN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

M M JOHNNY and THIS IS CHARISMA bumped shortly after the start.

SUPER KIN shifted out on jumping and bumped MANY GAINS.

After this, both SUPER KIN and MANY GAINS were steadied to obtain cover.

From the outside barriers, SPARKLING STAR and SHINEALOT were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

PRIME STAR was also steadied on jumping to obtain cover.

Near the 1500 Metres, as SEIZE THE SPIRIT (J Moreira) was being shifted across to obtain cover behind SMART HUNTER, SMART HUNTER was steadied which resulted in SEIZE THE SPIRIT clipping the heels of that horse and stumbling.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that after being hampered as a result of striking the heels of SMART HUNTER, he commenced to shift his mount across towards the rail and believed that he would obtain a position one horse off the rail as he anticipated that M M JOHNNY would shift across to race behind ANONYMA.

He said as he was shifting SEIZE THE SPIRIT across, he believed that he may have obtained the position one horse off the rail behind SMART HUNTER, however, at the winning post on the first occasion became aware that M M JOHNNY was still racing between SEIZE THE SPIRIT and ANONYMA.

He said SEIZE THE SPIRIT became unbalanced after bumping with M M JOHNNY passing the winning post on the first occasion.

He said as he was of the opinion that to continue to maintain what he considered to be the position one horse off the rail, having regard to the positioning of M M JOHNNY between SEIZE THE SPIRIT and ANONYMA, he believed that to continue to attempt to maintain this position would result in interference to M M JOHNNY and as he was not able to properly establish whether he would have been responsible for this interference by maintaining his position, he elected to shift SEIZE THE SPIRIT out marginally to ensure that M M JOHNNY had adequate racing room.

He said this resulted in SEIZE THE SPIRIT being left racing three wide and without cover passing the 1200 Metres.

He added, in his opinion, SEIZE THE SPIRIT's failure to finish off the race was as a result of the horse having struck heels earlier in the race and having to race wide and without cover throughout the race.

A veterinary inspection of SEIZE THE SPIRIT, which weakened over the latter stages, immediately following the race found that horse to have sustained a cut to the right front fetlock.

After the 1200 Metres, SMART HUNTER got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover behind HAPPY JAI JAI.

M M JOHNNY, which was following SMART HUNTER, was awkwardly placed behind that horse in consequence.

THIS IS CHARISMA in turn raced close to the heels of M M JOHNNY at the same point.

Passing the 900 Metres, THIS IS CHARISMA, which was travelling keenly, was steadied away from the heels of M M JOHNNY.

At the entrance to the Straight, SUPER KIN was shifted out away from the heels of SEIZE THE SPIRIT which made the Home Turn awkwardly.

After the 150 Metres, MANY GAINS was steadied away from the heels of SEIZE THE SPIRIT when disappointed for running between that horse which was commencing to give ground and SUPER KIN.

Approaching the 150 Metres, SPARKLING STAR was shifted out across the heels of ANONYMA after being disappointed for running inside that horse.

When being shifted out, SPARKLING STAR and PRIME STAR brushed.

SHINEALOT was held up for clear running approaching and passing the 150 Metres.

SHINEALOT then had difficulty obtaining clear running over the concluding stages.

As such, SHINEALOT was not able to be fully tested in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of PRIME STAR 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, PRIME STAR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of SUPER KIN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ON EXCEL STAR and HAPPY JAI JAI were sent for sampling.

<7/10/2021 Additional Veterinary Reports>The Veterinary Surgeon reported that M M JOHNNY was found to be lame in its left front leg on the morning after racing.

Before being allowed to race again, M M JOHNNY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
