Recap by phillip woo

Firing favourite, Real Specialist settled third or fourth and one off the fence behind the pedestrian pace of Berio, cornered in four deep and got up in the dying stages for a second straight win. Packing Whiz bided his time, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished up willingly to make it close at the finish. It was a big run behind slow fractions and he won't be far off a win. Berio dropped anchor after clearing Dragon Fighter for the lead at the 1,000m, straightened one off the fence and gave way late. Dragon Fighter was up on the speed, before taking the sit in second at the 1,000m, cornered in three deep and kept on OK to lose a placing in the final 50m. Kyara travelled in midfield along the inside, straightened three-to-four deep in a bit of traffic and made a steady bid when clear without threatening. Semos travelled just worse than midfield and two deep with cover, rounded the final bend five wide, loomed a chance at the 200m before run ended 100m out in a disappointingly flat effort for his new trainer Caspar Fownes. Finezza was badly hampered at the start and made his run a distant last, swung the final bend widest out and only kept on passed beaten runners. Chef enjoyed a dream run and showed nothing in the straight drive.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (467) - MACAU HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1600 Meters FINEZZA began awkwardly and then shifted out shortly after the start and blundered when close to the heels of CHEF which began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped CALIFORNIA DUDE.

For some distance in the early stages, KYARA and SEMOS proved difficult to settle.

Making the turn after the 900 Metres, REAL SPECIALIST was checked away from the heels of DRAGON FIGHTER and in doing so took CALIFORNIA DUDE, which throughout the race travelled wide, wider.

Passing the 800 Metres, KYARA got its head up and was checked away from the heels of CHEF when proving very difficult to settle and in doing so shifted out, resulting in SEMOS being crowded for room inside the heels of REAL SPECIALIST.

After this, KYARA continued to prove difficult to settle and in the early part of the Straight had difficulty obtaining clear running.

After the 100 Metres, N Callan (PACKING WHIZ) dropped his left rein.

In the Straight, FINEZZA got its head on the side and hung out.

REAL SPECIALIST and PACKING WHIZ were sent for sampling.
