Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late, Shiny Day was hustled to lead from gate 12 through steady fractions, cornered in just over a length on top, kicked nearly two clear at the 200m and kept on nicely, despite a rise in trip to chalk up a fourth win this term. Indigo Way made his run fourth from the rear and two deep outside Great Renown, cornered in with two wider out and was finished up willingly to overhaul Vigor Delight in the final few metres for second. Vigor Delight made his run third from the rear after botching the start, cornered in five wide, got up to second at the 50m and was pipped late for a higher prize. Enabling kept on one-paced to finish a clear fourth. Favourite Ho Ho Life settled midfield and two deep, cornered in with three wider out and never let down as expected. Banksters Bonus pushed into the clear with one wider out at the 250m and made some ground late without threatening. Owners' Glory made his run at the rear and kept on passed beaten runners. Great Renown was short of room four to five deep at the 200m and kept on evenly with every chance thereafter. Hollywood Kiss straightened one off the fence and kept on evenly. Specked late, Handsome Batchelor stalked the leader in second and one off the rails, rallied five wide upon straightening and was struggling 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (477) - THE INDIAN RECREATION CLUB CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1800 Meters VIGOR DELIGHT was slow to begin.

From a wide barrier, OWNERS GLORY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after entering the Straight, GREAT RENOWN, VIGOR DELIGHT and HO HO LIFE raced tight.

Throughout the race, NICE FOLKS travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

The performance of NICE FOLKS, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, NICE FOLKS will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of NICE FOLKS and HANDSOME BATCHELOR after the race did not show any significant findings.

HO HO LIFE, SHINY DAY and INDIGO WAY were sent for sampling.
