Recap by phillip woo

Best Eleven rushed up to settle three deep near the speed after a sluggish break, assumed the lead 350m out, opened up nearly two lengths at the 200m and kept up a strong gallop for the win as a firming third choice. Longwah Rising enjoyed the box-seat run, stayed to the rails upon straightening and overhauled Mentor 20m out for second. Favourite Mentor was handy in the run, rallied four-to-five wide and kept on OK for third with a jump in grade. Quantum Power settled midfield and three deep with some cover, rounded the final bend six wide and kept up a steady gallop in a somewhat disappointing effort as the tightening second choice in betting. Winning Apex was running on nicely to earn a pay slip in an encouraging debut performance. Shibala kept on evenly over the final 150m, while Time Runner was stopping 300m out after dictating the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (284) - GRASSY HILL HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters BEST WIN was withdrawn on 29.12.11 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetance).

Before being allowed to race again, BEST WIN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After this, WINNING APEX was taken across behind runners.

After the 800 Metres, EASY TRACK was left racing wide and without cover.

Rounding the Home Turn, MENTOR raced in restricted room between SHIBALA and EASY TRACK.

Near the 50 Metres, LONGWAH RISING shifted out and brushed MENTOR.

MENTOR, BEST ELEVEN and LONGWAH RISING were sent for sampling.
