Recap by phillip woo

Meridian Genius quickened nicely down the outside to take control 150m out after settling four back and three deep with cover from a middle gate. He was well rated and made full use of the extra 200m. Well-backed So Awesome ran on well along the inside to grab second 50m out travelling behind midfield on the fence. He was already a winner this term in Class Five. Smart Idea made up heaps of ground late to fill a placing after biding his time third last from a wide draw. It was another good effort carrying more weight after a last-start win. Showina closed late for fourth after being ridden cold from gate 12. He'll likely come on from this run after a lameness issue 21 days back. Plunged late Loriz finished next best after settling in the box-seat after an early four-way go for the lead. He's not far off a bottom. Theta Hedge succumbed 100m out after emerging with the lead 830m. He has shown a bit more spark in his past two of six career runs. Fortune Carrier just held his ground after getting cast three deep better than midfield despite draw four. He had an excuse. Favourite Singapore Spirit was plodding 150m out after getting posted deep without cover pressing the pace. He can be forgiven for the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (273) - TONG SHUI HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

NORDIC WARRIOR was slow to begin.

E SPRINTER began only fairly and then was brushed by G ONE EXCELLENT which on jumping was bumped by MERIDIAN GENIUS which shifted in.

FORTUNE CARRIER shifted in at the start and bumped THETA HEDGE, resulting in THETA HEDGE being crowded for room outside MOON PEAKS and FORTUNE CARRIER becoming unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by THETA HEDGE.

SO AWESOME began awkwardly, shifted out at the start and bumped SMART IDEA.

After this, from a wide barrier, SO AWESOME was shifted across behind runners.

From the outside barrier, SHOWINA was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Near the 1150 Metres, FORTUNE CARRIER was bumped by THETA HEDGE as FORTUNE CARRIER was being steadied to obtain cover behind that horse.

Making the turn near the 1050 Metres, FORTUNE CARRIER and G ONE EXCELLENT bumped.

Passing the 1000 Metres, SMART IDEA, which was racing wide, was awkwardly placed outside the heels of MERIDIAN GENIUS when being steadied to obtain cover.

SINGAPORE SPIRIT (J Moreira) travelled wide and without cover until near the 600 Metres at which time the horse was shifted across to race outside the lead.

When SINGAPORE SPIRIT shifted in, FORTUNE CARRIER was then left racing wide and without cover.

After the race, J Moreira stated that due to the amount of work that he had to make of SINGAPORE SPIRIT in the early and middle stages to avoid racing wide, the horse was then not able to finish off the race in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of SINGAPORE SPIRIT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

E SPRINTER made the turn after the 600 Metres awkwardly, shifted out and brushed G ONE EXCELLENT.

G ONE EXCELLENT was then very awkwardly placed close to the heels of MOON PEAKS approaching and passing the 500 Metres.

SO AWESOME, which was following G ONE EXCELLENT, was shifted in away from the heels of that horse after the 500 Metres.

At the entrance to the Straight, SO AWESOME was shifted in away from the heels of MOON PEAKS.

In the early part of the Straight, LORIZ got its head on the side and shifted out.

Passing the 200 Metres, SINGAPORE SPIRIT raced tight outside THETA HEDGE which shifted out.

SINGAPORE SPIRIT was then crowded for room over the concluding stages between FORTUNE CARRIER and THETA HEDGE which got its head on the side and shifted out away from LORIZ despite the efforts of its rider.

Because of this, neither THETA HEDGE nor SINGAPORE SPIRIT was ridden out over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of MOON PEAKS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
