Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, Mr Bond was patiently ridden second from the rear and two deep, peeled widest out upon straightening and let down brilliantly to take control 100m out for an easy win, despite a rise in grade. He's really come into his own this season and remains one to follow at Happy Valley. Euro Swiftly ran on nicely to come home just ahead of the fast-finishing Holiday Sun for second. Osvaldo travelled behind midfield and two deep, rallied five wide upon straightening and found a little too good in the dash to the line. Business As Usual cleared to the front at the 1,100m, straightened a length on top from Packing Tycoon and grudgingly gave way over the last 100m. Fun Rider was back to last at the top of the straight and was ducking and weaving near the inside to got close without threatening. Packing Tycoon whacked on one-paced over the final 100m. Banksters Bonus was running on reasonably well in an encouraging debut performance. Happy Tumbler was a handy fifth and one off the fence in the run, straightened five wide and found nothing when popped the question. Emperor Claudius kept on evenly over the final 100m. Amityship was hustled to challenge for the lead one off the fence, before handing up to Business As Usual passing the 1,200m and sitting third on the rails, was under pressure rounding the final bend two-to-three deep and was struggling 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (295) - CLUB STREET HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650 Meters WINNING EDGE was withdrawn on 3.1.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (painful left front fetlock) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter HOLIDAY SUN (T Clark).

Before being allowed to race again, WINNING EDGE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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

Approaching the 1200 Metres, FLASHING AURA got its head on the side and shifted out.

Near the 1100 Metres, HAPPY TUMBLER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PACKING TYCOON.

After the 1100 Metres, FLASHING AURA was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 450 Metres, EURO SWIFTLY (K C Leung) was checked when attempting a run between OSVALDO and EMPEROR CLAUDIUS where there was insufficient room.

K C Leung was advised to ensure that there is sufficient racing room when improving in similar circumstances.

OSVALDO had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Approaching the 200 Metres, EMPEROR CLAUDIUS was bumped by AMITYSHIP which shifted out.

At the 200 Metres, FLASHING AURA, which was giving ground, was steadied when crowded for room between OSVALDO and BANKSTERS BONUS, both of which shifted ground.

HOLIDAY SUN was not able to obtain clear running until passing the 200 Metres.

Over the concluding stages, FUN RIDER raced tight between PACKING TYCOON and OSVALDO which shifted in (T Angland).

In this incident, PACKING TYCOON was hampered when taken in towards the heels of BUSINESS AS USUAL.

T Angland was advised to ensure that he leaves sufficient racing room for runners to his inside in similar circumstances.
