PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Crossford ran down Captain Win in January for a second 1,600m win and hasn't been far off the mark in his past five starts, including a closing sixth to Viva Hunter in a race run to suit those up front when trying the Valley mile last start. He's an each-way chance. Packing Award easily ran down Viva Hunter after a wide run with cover behind midfield at his penultimate run in this grade for back-to-back wins over the Valley 1,650m. He was touched off by the late burst of Gorytus last start and is one of the chances despite a wide draw. Viva Hunter held off Gameplayer Times pressing the pace from a wide draw last start for a second win and three seconds from six straight C&D runs and should get all favours from gate three. Amazing One Plus isn't a prolific winner but weaved a troubled passage for a neck second behind the re-opposing Nothing New two back before an even fifth behind Viva Hunter. He can't be ignored.

TROUBLE IN RUNNING

INVINCIBLE MISSILE (C037)in the early stages was steadied to obtain cover from a wide barrier After the race, rider stated that the horse, which was having its first start since early February, did not travel as strongly as it did when he had previously ridden it He said the horse normally travels strongly in its races, however, it came under pressure passing the 700M and then did not finish the race off Post-race vet inspection did not show any significant findings - Race 622 CROSSFORD (G068)in the early stages was steadied to obtain cover from a wide barrier - Race 622 RED MAJESTY (E028)when questioned, rider stated that he was instructed to ride his mount positively in the early stages from a wide barrier and obtain a forward position if possible He said after riding his mount along out of the barriers, he formed the view that he would have had to do too much work on the horse to clear runners to its inside as there were a number of runners being ridden to obtain forward positions He said as a position behind the 2nd placegetter was available to the horse approaching and passing the winning post on the first occasion, he elected to take a trailing position behind that runner as he believed that that would provide the horse with the best opportunity to finish the race off - Race 603 NOTHING NEW (E127)until approaching the 800M was left racing wide and without cover Close to the finishing line rider dropped his right rein - Race 582 VILLA FIONN (B339)after travelling a short distance was steadied to obtain cover Approaching the 600M was taken wide and without cover - Race 582 PACKING FAMOUS (E381)approaching the winning post on the first occasion was awkwardly placed close to heels - Race 602 RECIPROCATION (G002)began only fairly - Race 634 LOYAL BABY (E130)began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped a runner For some distance after the 1000M was awkwardly placed and then near the 900M was checked away from heels After that continued to travel keenly - Race 603 LIGHT OF WANSHI (E009)at the start shifted out and bumped a runner After that was steadied to obtain cover After the 1200M was bumped, taken in and hampered From passing the 400M until passing the 250M was unable to obtain clear running Then approaching the 100M got its head on the side and shifted out, resulted in its rider straightening his mount - Race 607 TRIPLE TRIPLE (C359)on jumping bumped the outside of its gate and consequently began only fairly Close to the finishing line shifted in away from a runner and brushed another runner - Race 615
