Recap by phillip woo

G-One Winning went forward from a wide gate to settle second and one-off the rails, swept to the lead four deep and kept on nicely for a nice debut win as a firming second pick in betting. Sohna settled midfield and on the rails, was held up near the inside upon straightening, but finished off nicely to be a clear second passing the 50m. Favourite Twin Turbo travelled effectively one-out, one-back, cornered in three deep and kept on one-paced with a rise in weight. Scent Of Osmanthus rated fourth along the fence, shifted three deep at the 300m and was whacking away in a battle for third over the final 100m. Soldier was posted three deep worse than midfield, cornered in with two wider out and was running on late. Rocket Proud punched forward from a wide gate to dictate the running, cornered in a length on top and was coming back to the field over the last 150m. Follow The Wind made his run second from the rear and two deep, was last and switched widest out at the 300m and was hitting the line nicely in an encouraging debut. Honey Fortune and Kings Domain made no impression.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (318) - SANDOWN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400 Meters SEASONS CREST was slow to begin.

TWIN TURBO shifted in at the start and bumped SOHNA, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

EUPHEMISM was slow to begin and shortly after the start was crowded for room between KINGS DOMAIN and BILLION GAINS which shifted in.

Making the first turn, KINGS DOMAIN got its head up and proved difficult to settle when awkwardly placed close to the heels of TWIN TURBO.

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

Throughout the race, LINKED WIN and CHINA DRAGON travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that at the entrance to the Home Straight he shifted FOLLOW THE WIND to the outside of BILLION GAINS when disappointed for running between that horse and HONEY FORTUNE.

He said after being shifted to the outside of BILLION GAINS, FOLLOW THE WIND lay in and took some time to get balanced.

He said BILLION GAINS, which was racing to his inside, shifted out after the 300 Metres which continued to make it difficult for him to balance FOLLOW THE WIND.

He said when BILLION GAINS straightened approaching the 200 Metres, he was able to use the whip in the backhand manner on a number of occasions on FOLLOW THE WIND and the horse commenced to close off well.

He added however that FOLLOW THE WIND continued to lay in when struck with the whip and after the 100 Metres he changed the whip over into his right hand.

He said despite this FOLLOW THE WIND continued to lay in and near the 50 Metres shifted in towards SOLDIER.

Z Purton was advised that his riding of FOLLOW THE WIND in the Straight and in particular his lack of vigour on that horse had come under notice and that he must ride his mounts in such a fashion to ensure that it is not open to query.

A veterinary inspection of HONEY FORTUNE and KINGS DOMAIN after the race did not show any significant findings.

TWIN TURBO, G-ONE WINNING and SOHNA were sent for sampling.
