Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Nicholson was given a well-rated run in fifth and one-off the rails, cornered in four deep, wore down Compact Yarn for the lead at the 150m and edged clear for a second win from his past three starts with a step up in trip. Compact Yarn punched the breeze in second, worked to the lead three deep at the 300m and stayed on to finish a clear second. Kingston Spartacus travelled worse than midfield and one-off the fence, shifted five wide at the 400m and kept on well for a placing. Victory Ide Say made his run behind midfield and two deep, rallied with one wider out and made some progress to finish a distant fourth. Full Spirit made his run at the rear, hit the straight with two wider out and was running on late without threatening. Happy Cha Cha bided his time third from the rear and on the rails, ducked and weaved after hitting the straight four deep and ran on without ever menacing. Prosperity was stopping 100m out. Connoisseur's Pick is unreliable and did nothing with a move to blinkers, crossed nose band and a drop in grade. Punted late, Classic Boy travelled nicely in fourth along the rails but kept on one paced.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (317) - GOODWOOD HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800 Meters FULL SPIRIT was checked when crowded for room at the start between CLASSIC BOY and MAN OF THE MATCH which was taken out by HAPPY CHA CHA which shifted out after beginning awkwardly.

Making the turn near the 800 Metres, MAN OF THE MATCH brushed the rail and became unbalanced.

At the 200 Metres, HAPPY CHA CHA was shifted in away from the heels of REDOUTE STAR.

Throughout the race, REDOUTE STAR travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of CONNOISSEURS PICK, Y T Cheng stated that after being slow to begin, CONNOISSEURS PICK travelled only fairly.

He said at the 800 Metres he rode his mount along in an attempt to improve its position around VICTORY IDE SAY.

He said that despite being ridden along, CONNOISSEURS PICK was not able to improve to that horses outside and after this continued to travel only fairly.

He added that he shifted CONNOISSEURS PICK to the outside of runners in the early part of the Straight to have it close off the race, however, CONNOISSEURS PICK finished off only one-paced and, in his opinion, was disappointing.

A veterinary inspection of CONNOISSEURS PICK after the race did not show any significant findings.

NICHOLSON and COMPACT YARN were sent for sampling.
