Recap by phillip woo

Euro Swiftly eventually settled in with cover one off the fence in midfield at the 1,200m, hit the straight with one wider out, quickened to hit the front 100m out and staved off Best City late for the win. He's a real specialist over this mile trip at Happy Valley. Favourite Best City enjoyed a soft run in fifth along the rails, shifted off the heels of Champagne Days into the clear four deep at the 200m and was running on well to come up just short in his course debut. Champagne Days was rated a length back in second and one off the fence in the run, straightened three deep and stayed on gamely to just hold My Home Town for third. My Home Town settled one-out, one-back in the run, rallied five wide upon straightening and came up a bob short of placing. Elegance Klammer made his run behind midfield and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and was getting going late when the race was all but over. Regency Winner made his run third from the rear, swung the final bend six deep and was running on late without threatening in his course debut. Well-punted late, The Wand pressed forward from a wide gate to eventually clear for the lead rounding the first bend, was still a length on top at the 150m and was swamped in the final 50m. Carrying a ton of roll-up money, Give Well was stretching out well without a threat to the principles. Very Well made his usual bid late, but without ever looking a threat.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (331) - BOWRINGTON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650 Meters TREASURE GOLD was withdrawn on 17.1.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter EURO SWIFTLY (B Prebble).

Before being allowed to race again, TREASURE GOLD will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

VERY WELL was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, REGENCY WINNER was steadied when crowded for room between CHAMPAGNE DAYS and VIVA FIGHTER, both of which shifted ground.

Near the 1300 Metres, ELEGANCE KLAMMER was steadied when crowded for room between EURO SWIFTLY (B Prebble) which shifted in and KING AL AKBAR which shifted out slightly.

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

Near the 50 Metres, YUE LU TREASURE was steadied away from the heels of THE WAND which shifted in away from CHAMPAGNE DAYS which itself shifted in under pressure.

Because of this, both THE WAND and YUE LU TREASURE were not properly tested over the concluding stages.

EURO SWIFTLY and BEST CITY were sent for sampling.

After passing the winning post, GIVE WELL ran to the outside rail, resulting in VERY WELL being severely tightened for room on the outside rail.

Trainer A Lee will be advised that a warning has been placed upon GIVE WELL in respect of its manners after passing the winning post and if it were to offend in a similar manner in the future, the Stewards will give consideration to recommending to the Board of Stewards that the horse be compulsorily retired.
