Recap by phillip woo

Well Done was given an uncontested lead, circled the final bend clearly on top and kept finding for a cozy maiden win with the money pouring on him late. Mega Castle travelled a handy fifth with cover to the outside of King Creole, swung the final bend four deep and stayed on nicely to be a clear second in a much-improved performance. Flying Keeper was ridden patiently third from the rear, peeled widest out upon straightening and finished willingly to just get up for third. Megabucks was settled in midfield and one off the fence, switched five wide upon straightening and kept grinding away late. Favourite Dr Union was hard ridden to pick up at the 600m and got going five wide in the straight to finish just outside the placings. Good Smile stalked the pace in second and one off the fence, rallied three wide upon straightening and came up flat over the last 200m. Supreme Tycoon wasn't flash into stride, but eventually settled worse than midfield and one off the fence at the 800m, straightened near the inside and ran on one-paced. . He'll improve at this level over a longer trip. Descartes took the sit in third, was under a hustling ride soon after straightening and faltered over the last 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (011) - SOUTH BAY HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200 Meters The Veterinary Officer reported that FASCINATING SMILE had sustained minor abrasions to the left front leg whilst being unloaded on arrival at the Happy Valley Racecourse.

He said that following an examination of the horse, it was found suitable to race.

FLYER KEEPER was slow to begin.

After being slow to begin, DR UNION was ridden along and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of FASCINATING SMILE (J Lloyd) which shifted in.

J Lloyd was severely reprimanded and advised to exercise more care in future.

Passing the 200 Metres, SUPREME TYCOON was crowded for room to the inside of DESCARTES which was taken in by GOOD SMILE (Apprentice T H So).

Apprentice So was reminded of his obligation to keep his mounts on a straight course wherever possible.

Throughout the race, FASCINATING SMILE travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of FASCINATING SMILE after the race did not show any significant findings.

DR UNION, WELL DONE and MEGA CASTLE were sent for sampling.
