Recap by phillip woo

Mr Bond was posted three deep and third from the rear from a wide gate, pressed forward to settle midfield and without cover at the 700m, swept to the lead five wide at the 200m and held off the late-surge of Very Well for the win. Very Well made his run second from the rear, moved forward with cover three deep behind Mr Bond at the 600m, rounded the final bend six wide and was closing off strongly to make it tight at the finish. He's overdue for a win. My Home Town enjoyed a nice run in fourth along the fence, cornered in three deep and stayed on well for a placing with a lot of betting support late. Fleet Command quickly recovered off a slow break to travel in midfield and on the rails, rallied four wide upon straightening and ran on all right to fill the frame in fourth as the late-fancied favourite. Regency Winner bided his time at the rear, pushed widest out upon straightening and got going late without threatening. The Wand rolled forward from gate nine to lead passing the winner's arch for the first time, was kept to the task through steady fractions by Lunar Reflections and Jimson The Best to his outside, headed by Jimson The Best at the 800m, reclaimed the lead rounding the final bend and failed to keep up the gallop over the final 150m with a step up to a mile. He's better ridden with patience. Early favourite, Arion Of Chiu Ton kept on one-paced under pressure.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (266) - SING WOO HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650 Meters FLEET COMMAND, which was fractious in the barriers, was slow to begin.

Near the 1000 Metres, ARION OF CHIU TON was steadied away from the heels of LUNAR REFLECTIONS (Apprentice T H So) which shifted in when not properly clear.

Apprentice So was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Near the 800 Metres, MR BOND was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 500 Metres, MY HOME TOWN and LUNAR REFLECTIONS bumped as a result of MY HOME TOWN attempting to improve between THE WAND and LUNAR REFLECTIONS where there was insufficient room.

In this incident, LUNAR REFLECTIONS became unbalanced.

Over the concluding stages, MR BOND and VERY WELL raced tight.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of ARION OF CHIU TON, O Doleuze stated that, in his opinion, the horse does not appreciate racing amongst other runners.

He said ARION OF CHIU TON races best when able to obtain the lead.

He said after being instructed to lead in tonight!|s race if possible, he rode ARION OF CHIU TON along vigorously in the early stages, however, THE WAND showed superior speed and passing the winning post on the first occasion he was no longer able to maintain its position to the inside of that horse.

He said after being crossed by horses, ARION OF CHIU TON travelled only fairly and then in the Straight did not respond to his riding.

A veterinary inspection of LUNAR REFLECTIONS after the race revealed that the horse had bled from both nostrils.

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

FLEET COMMAND, MR BOND and VERY WELL were sent for sampling.
