Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Flying Chaparral saved ground in fourth along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening, narrowly hit the lead 50m out and staved off Upgrading for a third win this season. Upgrading settled worse than midfield and on the rails, narrowly drew level three deep at the 100m and couldn't pull back the margin on the winner. Snitzel Kid settled third and two deep with cover behind the leader Danewin Winning, cornered in four deep and stayed on gamely for a placing. Flora Danica sat second in the run, assumed the lead one off the fence at the 500m and gave way in the last 100m. Supreme Flight settled midfield and two deep, had to check between Noble Deluxe and Legend Express at the 300m and kept on all right when switching into the clear at the 200m in his course debut. Specked late, Legend Express was posted three deep in midfield, cornered in with two wider out and kept on all right, despite the tough trip. He may be ready to turn the form around. Danewin Winning led them till the 500m and was struggling in the straight in his first crack at a mile. Noble Deluxe was posted without cover three deep in fifth, punched forward to sit outside the leader at the 500m and was flat in the straight drive. Nordic Star made his run second from the rear and three deep, cornered widest out and only kept passed beaten runners.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (405) - FENWICK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650 Meters Passing the winning post on the first occasion, TOWERING STORM was crowded for room between UPGRADING and NOBLE DELUXE which shifted in momentarily.

Throughout the race, NOBLE DELUXE travelled wide and without cover and after the 1000 Metres was allowed to improve into a more forward position, however, continued to race wide and without cover.

Making the turn at the 600 Metres, FLYING CHAPARRAL was steadied when awkwardly placed close to the heels of DANEWIN WINNING.

In this incident, FLYING CHAPARRAL shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of SNITZEL KID.

Passing the 300 Metres, SUPREME FLIGHT was checked when disappointed for running between NOBLE DELUXE and LEGEND EXPRESS, both of which shifted slight ground.

After the 150 Metres, N Callan (SNITZEL KID) dropped his left rein.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that FLYING CHAPARRAL had lost its left front plate and that IRON EAGLE had lost both front plates.

FLYING CHAPARRAL and UPGRADING were sent for sampling.
