Recap by phillip woo

Nordic Star was patiently ridden second from the rear, peeled widest out soon after straightening and let down nicely to get up in the final 10m for the win. He had tipped his hat when resuming a luckless fifth last Wednesday. Billion was posted to the outside of the leader Bumper Strike, put a head in front at the 600m, opened up a two-length advantage at the 200m and was shaded late. Industrial Hero was patiently ridden third from the rear along the inside, hit the straight with two wider out and was eating up the ground late to snare third. Redoute's Fortune enjoyed a nice run one-out, one back, rallied four wide upon straightening and kept on one-paced without threatening. He was in need of the outing. Eagle Spirit made his run at the rear and got going late without threatening. He's looking for a further trip. Compact Yarn was rated three back and three deep in the run, swung the final bend with two wider out, loomed a place chance at the 200m and condition peaked 80m out. Favourite Longwah Kid saved ground along the fence in midfield, straightened with every chance and only passed beaten runners. He's come up empty as the favourite in two runs and is best to see some improvement first. Golden Boy had no chance after covering ground near the speed.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (033) - WILLOW HANDICAP (Sec 1) - Class 4 - 1650 Meters BILLION and GOLDEN BOY bumped at the start.

Shortly after the start, ALP'S GLORY was checked when crowded for room between BUMPER STRIKE which shifted in and LONGWAH KID which was taken out by EAST OCEAN.

From wide barriers, INDUSTRIAL HERO, NORDIC STAR and EAGLE SPIRIT were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

At the entrance to the Straight, ALP'S GLORY was steadied out away from the heels of NORDIC STAR which, when being shifted to the outside of INDUSTRIAL HERO, was taken wider by that horse which itself was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SURVEY SURVEY.

Near the 150 Metres, EAGLE SPIRIT was checked when disappointed for running between COMPACT YARN and INDUSTRIAL HERO.

Throughout the race, GOLDEN BOY travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of BUMPER STRIKE after the race did not show any significant findings.

LONGWAH KID, NORDIC STAR and BILLION were sent for sampling.
