Recap by phillip woo

Ernest Feeling dashed nicely through a gap 300m out to take control near the 100m following a patient ride fourth last from a wide draw for a first win at his 21st start. He had been frustrating for punters but did put the writing on the wall with a closing fourth last time out. Plunged late Asian One found one too good after being ridden for luck second last from gate 14. He was able to back up a last-start win despite a big weight. Chiron ended third after bursting between runners to lead 200m out following a rails run from behind midfield. He relished a return to the course and distance of a placing in May. Quorum made a steady bid from behind midfield to fill the frame. He proved a placing last start was not a fluke and could bob up shortly. Hunky Dory kept on evenly when asked for an effort following a prominent run on the fence. It was an improved effort for his new trainer. One Step Ahead was strung up for traffic from the 300m to 100m after making his run two from the rear. He should have finished closer. Favourite Beauty Nova never landed a blow after a wide with cover trip from behind midfield. He's not genuine.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (388) - LUNG YAT HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Meters

ONE STEP AHEAD jumped only fairly.

On jumping EASY LIFE was checked when crowded for room between ENCORE and BEAUTY NOVA which was also hampered when taken out by QUORUM.

SPICY SKEWER jumped awkwardly, brushed the right side of the barrier and shortly after made contact with ENCORE.

From wide barriers, ERNEST FEELING and ASIAN ONE were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 1000 Metres, ENCORE got its head up and raced keenly when being steadied to obtain cover.

Passing the 800 Metres, QUORUM and BEAUTY NOVA made contact due to QUORUM racing tight to the inside of BEAUTY NOVA.

As a result, both horses became unbalanced.

Rounding the Home Turn, PRINCE OF BON BON was bumped by HUNKY DORY which shifted to the outside of NOIR RIDER to improve.

Approaching the 350 Metres, ONE STEP AHEAD was shifted to the inside of CHIRON to continue into clear running.

Then near the 250 Metres ONE STEP AHEAD became awkwardly placed close to the heels of NOIR RIDER and was then shifted to that runner's outside to secure clear running.

ONE STEP AHEAD was then disappointed for running between NOIR RIDER and CHIRON near the 200 Metres and over the concluding stages raced tight between CHIRON and HUNKY DORY and could not be fully ridden out to the finish.

Approaching the 300 Metres, QUORUM (L Hewitson) improved into a tight run between HUNKY DORY and PRINCE OF BON BON, resulting in QUORUM making contact with PRINCE OF BON BON and taking that runner out onto the hindquarters of SPICY SKEWER which became unbalanced when bumped by PRINCE OF BON BON.

In this incident, PRINCE OF BON BON also became unbalanced when buffeted between QUORUM and SPICY SKEWER.

L Hewitson was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that there is sufficient racing room when improving into runs in future.

Near the 250 Metres, ENCORE was steadied to avoid the heels of SPICY SKEWER and was then shifted to the outside of that runner to continue into clear running.

After the race, Z Purton (BEAUTY NOVA) reported that after being hampered at the start he was obliged to ride his mount along in the early stages to hold a midfield positon.

He said BEAUTY NOVA did not travel well at any stage of the event, was under pressure making the Home Turn and failed to run on in the Straight and raced in a disappointing manner.

A veterinary inspection of BEAUTY NOVA immediately following the race which included an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

The performance of BEAUTY NOVA, favourite for today's race, was considered unacceptable.

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

SPICY SKEWER raced wide and without cover for the majority of the event.

EASY LIFE lost its left front plate after the race.

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

BEAUTY NOVA, ERNEST FEELING and ASIAN ONE were sent for sampling.
