Recap by phillip woo

In a well-stretched out field, Goodview Successor was nicely rated better than midfield and two deep with cover, rounded the final bend five wide, swept to the lead 200m out and drew clear, despite tending to hang out for a handy win as the firming favourite. Fun Heroes was posted deep early from a wide gate, before settling behind midfield and two deep, cornered the final bend with one wider out and ran on nicely to take second. Victory Mascot was ridden early to occupy a spot fifth from the rear and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and finished up nicely for third. Owners' Glory bided his time at the rear from a wide gate, shifted widest out at the 200m and was getting going late to fill the frame a non-threatening fourth. Straight Forward settled second from the rear, cornered in five wide and made some ground late without threatening. Punted late, Eagle Spirit enjoyed all the favours in the run in midfield and along the inside, moved to second two deep at the 200m and was stopping 100m out. Let's Goal slotted in one-out, one-back, rounded the final bend six wide and kept on one-paced. Hollywood Kiss continually pressed forward out deep without cover to eventually contest the lead with Wealth Park through nice fractions, poked his head narrowly in front four deep at the 300m and gave way 200m out. Wealth Park tired after a tough run. Antipasto was struggling a long ways out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (311) - GREAT GEORGE HANDICAP - Class 3 - 2200 Meters From wide barriers, OWNERS GLORY and VICTORY MASCOT were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early stages, HOLLYWOOD KISS, despite being ridden along, took some time to muster speed.

After being crossed by ANTIPASTO after the 2000 Metres, SURE CHAMP shifted out away from the heels of that horse, resulting in GOODVIEW SUCCESSOR being bumped on a number of occasions.

For some distance after this, SURE CHAMP continued to prove difficult to settle.

Near the 1800 Metres, ANTIPASTO, which was reluctant to hold its position, was checked after becoming badly unbalanced when racing tight to the inside of EAGLE SPIRIT.

SURE CHAMP, which was following, was severely checked away from the heels of ANTIPASTO and shifted out, resulting in GOODVIEW SUCCESSOR becoming unbalanced and being taken wider.

VICTORY MASCOT, which was following GOODVIEW SUCCESSOR, was checked away from the heels of that horse and in doing so shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of FUN HEROES which became unbalanced.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, ANTIPASTO, despite being vigorously ridden along, lost ground when reluctant to maintain its position inside FUN HEROES.

Rounding the Home Turn, ANTIPASTO, which was racing in restricted room to the inside of SURE CHAMP, was checked when again reluctant to maintain its position inside that horse.

After this, ANTIPASTO finished tailed out.

The performance of ANTIPASTO was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, ANTIPASTO will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Passing the 250 Metres, GLORY OF INDIA was shifted out away from the heels of HOLLYWOOD KISS.

In the Straight, GOODVIEW SUCCESSOR raced greenly and shifted out on a number of occasions.

A veterinary inspection of HOLLYWOOD KISS and ANTIPASTO after the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of LETS GOAL after the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had sustained a small wound to the outside of the left hind fetlock.

GOODVIEW SUCCESSOR and FUN HEROES were sent for sampling.
