Recap by phillip woo

Happily Friends got up in the final few strides to knock off favourite U W Brother and register only his second win from 33 starts. He made the most of his perfect trip one off the rail better than midfield and relished his downgrade to resume a winner for his new trainer. U W Brother reclaimed the lead after taking the sit in the box seat but was collared in the dying stages. He is racing pretty well at both tracks this season and can break through shortly. Hearty Wish gave way after splitting runners to lead 800m out. He is a winner waiting to happen with placings in his past two starts. Flying On The Turf ran on nicely one from the rear to fill the frame. He has run with merit in both of his starts this term for his new handler. Raging Blaze made some headway late near the inside to finish next best from the rear of the field. He is honest but has trouble winning. Cigar Buddies gave way 100m out after working hard to prompt the pace from his wide draw. He needed the run. Euromissile was a non-factor after missing the kick.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (169) - FUKUSHIMA HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Meters

EUROMISSILE, which sustained minor abrasions to the left hock whist being transported to Happy Valley, was examined by the Veterinary Officer on arrival at the course and passed suitable to race.

EUROMISSILE was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, RAGING BLAZE and DASHING GENIUS were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After travelling a short distance, CARRY THE DIAMOND and FLYING ON THE TURF brushed as FLYING ON THE TURF was being steadied to obtain a position closer to the rail.

For some distance approaching and passing the 400 Metres, HAPPILY FRIENDS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CARRY THE DIAMOND.

At the entrance to the Straight, EUROMISSILE and FLYING ON THE TURF raced tight as EUROMISSILE shifted to the outside of HEAVENLY THOUGHT to obtain clear running.

Passing the 250 Metres, RAGING BLAZE was shifted to the outside of FORTUNE MARBO after being disappointed for running inside that horse which shifted in under pressure.

After being shifted to the outside of FORTUNE MARBO, RAGING BLAZE was then held up for clear running near the 200 Metres when tightened for room between FORTUNE MARBO and LE PLUS VITE.

In this incident, RAGING BLAZE bumped the hindquarters of FORTUNE MARBO which became unbalanced.

Then over the concluding stages, RAGING BLAZE was again held up for clear running and because of this was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

When held up for clear running over the concluding stages, RAGING BLAZE raced tight inside LE PLUS VITE which shifted in when racing tight inside CIGAR BUDDIES.

Over the concluding stages, HAPPILY FRIENDS shifted in under pressure and passing the winning post brushed U W BROTHER.

A veterinary inspection of CARRY THE DIAMOND and FORTUNE MARBO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HAPPILY FRIENDS and U W BROTHER were sent for sampling.
