Recap by phillip woo

Hear The Roar settled midfield and two deep to the outside of Super Bobo, angled into the clear five at the 300m, quickened well to hit the front 100m out and kept on soundly for a nice win carrying top weight. Favourite Summer Dash s settled behind midfield and three deep with cover, swung the final bend in the centre of the course and was pulling back the margin late. Burgundy Mac travelled worse than midfield on the rails, swung the final bend six wide and got going nicely to run down Fun Heroes in the final 20m for a placing. Fun Heroes travelled keenly three back and one-off the fence, cornered in four wide and kept plugging away. North Hill was prominent near the speed and kept on evenly three deep with every chance. Ho Ho Life was cast deep without cover in midfield, swung the final bend near the grandstand side and kept on well, despite the hard run. Glory Of India pressed forward to assume the lead from Full Spirit at the 800m, straightened a half-length on top and was one-paced over the final 150m. Full Spirit led early, assumed the sit in second, came under pressure soon after straightening. He'll need a drop in grade. Eastern Empire made his run third from the rear and two-to-three deep, swung the final bend widest out and only passed beaten runners. Victory Mascot made his run second from the rear after bungling the start, swung very wide upon straightening, was forced even wider out by a hanging Give Well at the 200m and was never a threat.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (147) - LEIGHTON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800 Meters VICTORY MASCOT, which was leaning on the inside of its gate, was slow to begin.

GIVE WELL shifted out abruptly at the start and then after the 800 Metres got its head on the side and hung out.

GIVE WELL continued to hang out badly in the Straight despite the efforts of its rider and shifted towards the outside fence, resulting in VICTORY MASCOT being taken extremely wide and being hampered on a number of occasions by GIVE WELL.

Trainer A Lee was advised that having regard to GIVE WELL!|s previous racing history and the manner in which it had hung out today, GIVE WELL would be required to pass a series of official barrier trials around a bend prior to being permitted to race again.

Mr Lee was further advised that should GIVE WELL hang out to a marked degree in either official barrier trials or in any future races, the Stewards would consider recommending to the Board of Stewards that GIVE WELL be compulsorily retired.

From wide barriers, EASTERN EMPIRE and SHIFACHI TRADITION were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1600 Metres, HO HO LIFE shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FUN HEROES which got its head up on a number of occasions when proving difficult to settle.

Over the final 50 Metres, SUPER BOBO was not able to obtain clear running and consequently was not properly tested.

A veterinary inspection of GIVE WELL after the race did not show any significant findings.

HEAR THE ROAR and SUMMER DASH were sent for sampling.
