Recap by phillip woo

Fionn's Dragon was rated worse than midfield and just off the rails, pushed into the clear five wide soon after straightening and finished off well to get up in the final few metres for the upset win. All Victory established a clear lead from Costa Del Sol at the 1,100m, was under a bit more pressure from Iron Eagle at the 900m, established a length advantage upon straightening and kept up a good gallop to just hold second. Best City settled two deep in midfield, straightened four wide in a traffic jam, copped a check at the 250m and finished off strongly when clear 100m out to be a terribly unlucky third as the late-fancied favourite. He'll be hard to beat next time out. Costa Del Sol eventually settled in the box-seat, worked to second three deep at the 300m and was swamped in the final 50m for a placing. Finezza bided his time second from the rear, straightened six deep and kept coming with a good run late. Open Sesame was rated behind midfield and on the rails, cornered in two deep in a jam and got going with a clear run at the 150m to make it close. Early favourite Supreme Winner made his run three deep and fourth from the rear, angled widest out at the 400m and never threatened. He'll come on for this run. Quantum Power settled three deep ahead of midfield after breaking from a wide gate, rounded the final bend five wide under a nice hold, was given a bump at the 250m by Best City and unresponsive over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (046) - NORFOLK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400 Meters GENE POWER was difficult to load.

Before being allowed to race again, GENE POWER will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

SMART FORTUNE and GENE POWER bumped at the start.

From a wide barrier, FINEZZA was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 800 Metres, FIONNS DRAGON was awkwardly placed close to the heels of QUANTUM POWER.

Near the 650 Metres, GIANTS SERAPIS and QUANTUM POWER were taken wider by COSTA DEL SOL which shifted out.

At the entrance to the Straight, DIEGO and SMART FORTUNE bumped.

OPEN SESAME had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Near the 300 Metres, BEST CITY bumped the hindquarters of QUANTUM POWER when improving into a tight run between that horse and COSTA DEL SOL.

This resulted in both QUANTUM POWER and COSTA DEL SOL becoming unbalanced.

A short distance later, BEST CITY was checked away from the heels of COSTA DEL SOL (Apprentice K C Ng) which shifted out under pressure.

GENE POWER, which was following BEST CITY and had been held up for clear running, was checked in consequence.

Apprentice Ng was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he makes every endeavour to keep his mounts on a straight course in future.

GENE POWER was steadied near the 200 Metres when disappointed for running between BEST CITY and OPEN SESAME, both of which shifted ground.

BEST CITY then had difficulty obtaining clear running for a short distance after the 200 Metres.

Right on the finishing line, FINEZZA was checked away from the heels of FIONNS DRAGON due to both horses shifting ground.

Throughout the race, QUANTUM POWER travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of QUANTUM POWER after the race did not show any significant findings.
