PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Ka Ying Master remained unbeaten twice over this C&D when getting the better of odds-on pop Dancing Fighter inside the final 50m on opening day. He must have claims carrying nine pounds less despite a rise in class and typically difficult low draw. E Master won twice in Class Four and ended last season with a closing second to Magic Legend in this grade over the Valley 1,200m. He had a nice trial recently over the straight 1,000m and is one of the chances. Mr Lumieres bled when ending last season with a second straight third place result over tis C&D but has since had two pleasing trials and is a past first-up winner. He can't be ignored. Valiant Dream is another who'll have to offset a low gate but was nearly perfect in two C&D runs in Class Four last season and comes into this off a positive trial on the dirt. He's a place chance off a light weight.

TROUBLE IN RUNNING

MR LUMIERES (B179)after the race was reported by the vet who said the horse had bled from both nostrils - Race 636 WINNING METHOD (C383)when questioned regarding the disappointing performance, rider stated that he had ridden the horse in the lead up to the race and based on the manner in which the horse worked he anticipated that it would perform strongly He said he had to ride the horse along vigorously for some distance after the start in order to take up as prominent a position as possible He said after being crossed by the 2nd placegetter near the 800M, his mount did not travel well and came under pressure at the 600M He said when ridden along vigorously, the horse did not respond and was particularly disappointing in the manner in which it gave ground over the final 200M He added whilst the horse was graduating from griffin class, he was of the view that it was entitled to finish off the race stronger than it did and he was therefore unable to explain the horse's performance - Race 009 ARDENODE (B145)on jumping made heavy contact with a runner when crowded for room Near the 900M got its head up when travelling keenly and awkwardly placed - Race 813 STAR LUCK (C257)made the turn near the 1050M awkwardly and shifted out Post-race vet inspection did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious - Race 785 PERFECT PAIR (C027)when questioned, rider stated that it was anticipated that a runner would show early speed and lead the race and his mount would either sit to the outside of that runner or behind it He said that runner did not show as much speed as was anticipated and when his mount showed superior speed, he shifted across to lead the race in the early stages He said when the eventual leader improved its position quickly around his mount after the 1100M, he anticipated that it would continue on into the lead and run the race at a good tempo and therefore he elected near the 900M to allow it to cross He said when he did that the eventual leader steadied the tempo in the lead and that resulted in his mount being awkwardly placed near the 850M He said in hindsight he had erred in allowing the eventual leader to cross, however, he anticipated that it would dictate the race at a quicker pace than it ultimately did He said his mount was held up for clear running passing the 300M, however, was then disappointing in its failure to respond to his riding, particularly over the latter stages of the race when the horse gave ground He added, in his opinion, the horse's performance could be attributed to the circumstances of the race, however, he was of the belief that the horse did not feel as comfortable in its action as it did when ridden by him in the past Post-race vet inspection did not show any significant findings The next day was again examined by the vet who said the horse to be lame in its right front leg - Race 719 HAIR TRIGGER (A215)at the start was crowded for room - Race 757 MASSIVE POCKET (B246)approaching the 300M was checked and lost its rightful running - Race 019 VALIANT DREAM (B416)when questioned, rider stated that he was asked to obtain a forward position and preferably with cover He said after riding his mount along in the early stages, he was able to clear a runner approaching the 900M He said his mount then travelled keenly and when the 3rd placegetter improved to its outside approaching the 800M, his mount was inclined to travel keener still He said after the 800M the 3rd placegetter was ridden along and as he felt the tempo of the race was good at that time, he did not wish to engage in a speed battle with that runner and therefore elected to allow that runner, which continued to be ridden along, to cross his mount near the 550M He said at the entrance to the Straight he shifted his mount to the outside and it was commencing to finish off the race, however, near the 200M raced tight between two runners He added his mount was then reluctant to again improve in between those runners and over the concluding stages raced tight and consequently was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race - Race 765 SPACE (C339)near the 850M became unbalanced of its own accord when travelling keenly in the lead - Race 804
