Recap by phillip woo

Smiling Face dashed nicely three from the right after finding the fence behind midfield from a wide gate to win going away 100m out. He had been racing well and deserved the win. Daily Beauty weaved a run late through the centre to grab second 30m out after a patient ride at the rear of the field. He's a winner waiting to happen with placings in his past three starts. Diamond Star ran on well near the inside to fill a placing after a rails run in midfield. It was another consistent effort. Sea Monarch kept on gamely for fourth despite working like a trojan to eventually clear for the lead 600m out after heading into the first turn five deep from a wide gate. He has had no luck with draws but has given a decent sight in back-to-back runs. Oh Bravo ran on reasonably well down the outside after biding his time one from the rear. He can produce the odd good run now and then. Specked late, Anonyma gradually faded after driving through the centre to track the speed after a tardy start. He's not genuine. Favourite Manna From Heaven was disappointing after getting all the favours prominent along the fence. He's having trouble hitting top form despite having his third run in Class Five.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (673) - WAGLAN ISLAND HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

MAN UP was checked on jumping when crowded for room between HUMBLE STEED and ANONYMA which began very awkwardly and shifted in abruptly.

From wide barriers, KING'S TROOPER and SMILING FACE were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After travelling a short distance, DIAMOND STAR and ALL YOU KNOW bumped.

Near the 1500 Metres, SMILING FACE was awkwardly placed outside the heels of KING'S TROOPER when being steadied to obtain a position closer to the rail.

After passing the winning post on the first occasion, KING'S TROOPER got its head up when being checked away from the heels of DAILY BEAUTY which was being steadied in an attempt to obtain cover.

After the 1300 Metres, DAILY BEAUTY was steadied to the rear of the field to obtain cover after being left racing in a three wide position outside OH BRAVO.

Passing the 1000 Metres, MAN UP commenced to travel keenly and got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of ALL YOU KNOW.

Approaching the 900 Metres, MANNA FROM HEAVEN got its head on the side and lay out towards the heels of ANONYMA.

SEA MONARCH travelled wide and without cover until near the 600 Metres.

After the 500 Metres, MAN UP was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of ALL YOU KNOW as SMILING FACE improved to be racing inside ALL YOU KNOW.

Passing the 300 Metres, RUN THE TABLE got its head on the inside and lay in towards the heels of SEA MONARCH.

Approaching the winning post, SEA MONARCH raced tight inside DAILY BEAUTY.

Passing the winning post, DAILY BEAUTY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SMILING FACE.

After the race, A Badel was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of MANNA FROM HEAVEN.

He said after obtaining a position behind the leaders in the early stages, MANNA FROM HEAVEN travelled satisfactorily before coming under pressure near the 400 Metres.

He said MANNA FROM HEAVEN did not quicken when placed under pressure and then was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to close the race off.

A veterinary inspection of MANNA FROM HEAVEN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on MAN UP at the request of Trainer C S Shum.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, MAN UP will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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