Recap by phillip woo

Noble Deluxe was hustled out of the gates to settle fourth in the run along the fence, stuck to the inside upon straightening and wore down My Goal in the final few metres for a well-fancied win. Regency Winner was ridden cold at the rear from gate 12, swung widest out upon straightening and was finishing best of all late to make it close at the finish. My Goal was hounded early on the lead by Always Well, opened up a two-length margin at the 800m, straightened comfortably on top and was swamped inside the final 50m. Exceptional Art made some ground late without threatening the principles for a placing. Holiday Sun went back from a wide gate and made some ground late near the inside. Joyful Winner II camped one-out, one-back in the run, straightened four wide with every chance and made a steady bid over the final 100m without looking a threat of placing. Always Well was jousting for the lead early, before assuming the sit in second at the 1,200m, hit the straight three deep and was giving ground passing the 200m. He appears to have stamina issues at a mile. Specked late, North Hill never was always three deep in the run and never competitive. Arion Of Chiu Ton was caught three deep behind midfield, pressed forward to sit outside the leader at the 400m, was under the whip rounding the final bend and was a beaten runner at the 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (089) - HIGH ISLAND HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650 Meters SLEEP WELL was slow to begin.

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

Approaching the 1000 Metres, HOLIDAY SUN got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of NORTH HILL.

Near the 900 Metres, EXCEPTIONAL ART commenced to race fiercely and got its head up for some distance when being checked away from the heels of JOYFUL WINNER II.

EXCEPTIONAL ART then continued to be awkwardly placed on the heels of JOYFUL WINNER II for some distance.

At the entrance to the Straight, JOYFUL WINNER II was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ARION OF CHIU TON which shifted out.

For the majority of the race, ARION OF CHIU TON travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of ARION OF CHIU TON after the race did not show any significant findings.
