Recap by phillip woo

Red Brick Fighter edged clear after taking off 600m out to head off Fearless Fire 200m out following a well-executed ride one-off in midfield for a second win from his past three starts. He did win very well two back in Class Five. Fearless Fire kept on well for second after rolling forward to lead 1,100m out from a wide draw. He's always a chance over this Valley trip and does go well for Blake Shinn. Super Hornet kept plugging away for a placing after handing up the lead to Fearless Fire. This run gives him options going forward after placing two back over the 1,400m. Yee Cheong Warrior ran on steadily to fill the frame after saving ground in midfield. It was a better run on his past six starts but he was stepping out off an identical winning mark to when successful on 45 in November. Regency Master came from near last to pick up a minor cheque. He has found the line a lot better in his past two starts. Baron Zee ran on without menacing after biding his time two from the rear. It was a slightly better effort following a gear change. Our Class Act was given every chance in the box-seat but had no more to offer 200m out. Favourite Ai One never came on after a one-off trip behind midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (698) - PORT SHELTER HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Meters

OUR CLASS ACT and AI ONE bumped at the start.

FEARLESS FIRE began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, BARON ZEE and REGENCY MASTER were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching and passing the winning post on the first occasion, OUR CLASS ACT travelled keenly when being steadied to obtain cover behind SUPER HORNET.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, REGENCY MASTER lay in and bumped GO FOR TEA.

GO FOR TEA then commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed behind BARON ZEE for some distance approaching and passing the 500 Metres.

When awkwardly placed behind BARON ZEE, GO FOR TEA shifted out approaching the 400 Metres and raced tight inside REGENCY MASTER.

GO FOR TEA then shifted in and brushed the running rail of its own accord rounding the Home Turn, resulting in GO FOR TEA becoming badly unbalanced.

Passing the 300 Metres, SUPER HORNET was shifted to the inside of FEARLESS FIRE to obtain clear running after being disappointed for running between that horse and RED BRICK FIGHTER.

SUPER HORNET then lay in and passing the 200 Metres inconvenienced OUR CLASS ACT.

For the majority of the race, UNIVERSAL GO GO travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, K Teetan stated that from the outside barrier he was provided with two sets of instructions on how to ride GO FOR TEA tonight.

He said it was explained to him that when use has been made of GO FOR TEA in the early stages in some of its races, the horse did not finish the race off.

He said therefore he was told that if GO FOR TEA began well and he was able to take up a forward position without having to ride the horse along aggressively to do so, then he should allow GO FOR TEA to obtain a forward position.

He said however that if the horse began only fairly, the connections of GO FOR TEA preferred for the horse to be ridden quietly to save it for a final run.

He said at its most recent start the connections of GO FOR TEA were satisfied with the manner in which the horse finished the race off when ridden more conservatively and therefore it was stressed to him not to make too much use of the horse in the early stages.

He said as GO FOR TEA did not jump on terms tonight, he made the decision to shift the horse across behind runners in accordance with his instructions.

Mr F C Lor, the trainer of GO FOR TEA, confirmed the instructions provided to Jockey Teetan tonight.

He also confirmed that he had been disappointed in the finishing efforts of GO FOR TEA when use had been made of the horse in the early stages to obtain a forward position and therefore from the outside barrier he was supportive of the decision Jockey Teetan made to ride the horse quietly tonight given the manner in which it began.

A veterinary inspection of GO FOR TEA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of AI ONE, Z Purton stated that the horse, which was racing first up since 23 January this year, travelled too keenly in the early and middle stages.

He said when the pace of the race increased passing the 500 Metres, AI ONE immediately came off the bridle and then became unbalanced on the Home Turn when unable to maintain its position between BARON ZEE and UNIVERSAL GO GO.

He said as AI ONE was well beaten passing the 300 Metres and was commencing to give ground, he did not ride the horse out over the latter stages.

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

The performance of AI ONE, favourite for tonight's race and which finished at the rear of the field, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, AI ONE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of KING DRAGON immediately following the race found that horse to have bled from both nostrils.

AI ONE, RED BRICK FIGHTER and FEARLESS FIRE were sent for sampling.
