Recap by phillip woo

High Rise Soldier claimed Decisive Twelve 20m out for the win after getting a lovely run tracking the leader near the fence from gate one. He had everything fall into place in the run but was well rated after failing to menace in six earlier starts this term. Decisive Twelve found one too good after rolling forward three deep to assume the lead 550m out. He has been racing hot and cold of late. Punted late War Of Courage kept on gamely to just deny favourite Seizing the Moment a placing after handing up the front mid-race. It was a good effort in a rare lead role trying the Valley for the first time. Seizing The Moment was doing some nice work late but left things too late travelling behind midfield on the fence. He's a winning waiting to happen especially with Class Four looming large. Run Run Cool only plodded over the final 100m after a one-off run in midfield. It was a positive run in his initial Valley run trying an extra 200m. Storm Warnings ran on without menacing from towards the rear. He's still trying to get his fitness right at just his second outing this term. Royal Bomb beat a few from towards the back. He needed the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (397) - HOI YUEN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

At declaration time, C Y Ho was declared as the rider of both DECISIVE TWELVE and ROYAL BOMB.

It was established that C Y Ho had a firm commitment to ride DECISIVE TWELVE.

As such, the Stewards permitted D Moor to be substituted as the rider of ROYAL BOMB.

For this declaration error, C Y Ho was fined $2,000.

FAULDS began only fairly and then was bumped by ROYAL BOMB which shifted in after being bumped by STORM WARNINGS.

After this, STORM WARNINGS was steadied to obtain cover from an outside barrier.

SEIZING THE MOMENT lost ground when crowded for room on jumping between RACING FIGHTER and HIGH RISE SOLDIER which shifted out.

Approaching the 900 Metres, RUN RUN COOL was awkwardly placed inside the heels of WAR OF COURAGE when being crossed by that horse.

DECISIVE TWELVE travelled wide and without cover until passing the 600 Metres at which point FAULDS was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn near the 500 Metres, RACING FIGHTER got its head on the side and lay out towards the heels of ROYAL BOMB.

Near the 450 Metres, WOOD ON FIRE raced tight outside HIGH RISE SOLDIER which improved to the outside of WAR OF COURAGE.

Rounding the Home Turn, FAULDS was bumped and taken wider by RUN RUN COOL which shifted out away from the heels of WOOD ON FIRE after having difficulty obtaining clear running.

Also rounding the Home Turn, SEIZING THE MOMENT was steadied away from the heels of HIGH RISE SOLDIER when unable to improve.

At the entrance to the Straight, WOOD ON FIRE was bumped by HIGH RISE SOLDIER which shifted to the outside of DECISIVE TWELVE to obtain clear running.

After the 300 Metres, SEIZING THE MOMENT was shifted in away from the heels of WOOD ON FIRE to continue improving.

Approaching the 100 Metres, SEIZING THE MOMENT and RUN RUN COOL raced tight as SEIZING THE MOMENT improved into tight running between RUN RUN COOL and HIGH RISE SOLDIER.

Close to the finishing line, STORM WARNINGS was awkwardly placed behind DECISIVE TWELVE.

When questioned, K C Leung stated that he was instructed to ride WOOD ON FIRE in about a midfield position if possible.

He said after beginning well, he immediately steadied his mount with a view to obtaining a position behind WAR OF COURAGE.

He said as there were a number of horses positioned to the inside of WAR OF COURAGE which appeared as though they were going to take up positions in midfield or in advance of midfield, he felt that WOOD ON FIRE may have been left racing wide if he continued to steady his mount in an attempt to obtain a midfield position.

He said as the tempo of the race in the early stages was not strong, he elected, rather than to continue to steady his mount, to ride WOOD ON FIRE along and clear runners to the inside which resulted in WOOD ON FIRE being ridden in a forward position today.

A veterinary inspection of WOOD ON FIRE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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