Recap by phillip woo

Snitzel Kid was niggled along to occupy a spot without cover a length outside the leader Gilded Flight in second, ranged on the leader at the 800m, narrowly hit the lead four deep at the 200m and staved off the late surge of Bumper Strike for the win. Bumper Strike recovered after a slow break from gate 12 to settle midfield and two deep, was one-out, one-back at the 500m, cornered in five wide and kept coming late to make it close at the finish. Jolly Wongchoy settled better than midfield and on the rails, hit the straight one off the fence and kept on gamely to snare a placing. El Grande travelled behind midfield and on the rails, was inconvenienced by a tiring Gilded Flight underneath and Snitzel Kid in front of him at the 150m, before staying on a luckless fourth. Early favourite, Juggernaut slipped through along the inside to briefly hit the front at the 250m and was giving ground over the final 100m. Common Goal bided his time third from the rear and two deep, swung the final bend with one wider out and was doing his best work late when the race was all but over. Plunged late to jump favourite in a wide-open market, Gilded Flight straightened narrowly on top from Snitzel Kid and was stopping 150m out off a feather weight after dictating a good pace. He'll be a contender with a drop in grade after this run. Good Looking Watch was detached from the field early on and never a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (367) - TIU KENG LENG HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650 Meters NOBLE DE BEST was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (urticaria).

Before being allowed to race again, NOBLE DE BEST will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

BUMPER STRIKE was slow to begin.

GILDED FLIGHT was crowded for room at the start between SNITZEL KID and JUGGERNAUT, both of which shifted ground.

CHARMGOLD travelled wide and without cover until near the 600 Metres.

Near the 500 Metres, EL GRANDE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BUMPER STRIKE.

Near the 100 Metres, EL GRANDE and GILDED FLIGHT bumped on a number of occasions as EL GRANDE established running between GILDED FLIGHT and SNITZEL KID.

Over the concluding stages, EL GRAND, which hung in in the Straight, got its head on the side and shifted in, resulting in GILDED FLIGHT being awkwardly placed close to the heels of JOLLY WONGCHOY.

Over the concluding stages, N Callan (SNITZEL KID) dropped his left rein.

When questioned, M Chadwick (REAL DRAGON) stated that he was able to obtain a position behind SNITZEL KID one horse off the fence after the 1100 Metres.

He said approaching the 1000 Metres the pace of the race slackened and REAL DRAGON was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SNITZEL KID.

He said making the turn at the 1000 Metres REAL DRAGON got its head on the side and lay out which it had done previously in both its races and in track work.

He said this resulted in REAL DRAGON shifting out away from the heels of SNITZEL KID.

He said as this was happening CHARMGOLD improved its position to be racing outside of REAL DRAGON which caused REAL DRAGON to race keenly.

He said because of this he was not able to immediately shift REAL DRAGON back behind SNITZEL KID as REAL DRAGON had improved its position to be racing to the outside of the heels of that horse.

He said after the 900 Metres he attempted to shift REAL DRAGON back behind SNITZEL KID, however, BUMPER STRIKE improved its position to be racing to the inside of REAL DRAGON and for this reason he was not able to shift in.

He added because of this REAL DRAGON was then required to race wide and without cover for the remainder of the race.

M Chadwick was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must at all times make every effort to continue to avail himself of advantageous positions and he must ride his mounts in a competitive manner wherever circumstances permit.

GILDED FLIGHT, SNITZEL KID and BUMPER STRIKE were sent for sampling.
