Recap by phillip woo

Well Fit was ridden from a middle gate to lead out right two off the outside fence at the 800m, was asked for an effort at the 400m and drew clear to win well as the favourite. Island Spring was always under pressure to stay in touch worse than midfield and in the centre of the course after a sluggish break, before letting down in the final 200m to get up in the final 50m to snare second from Fierce Force with a drop in grade. He appears capable of winning at this level. Fierce Force was aggressively ridden after breaking awkwardly, moved to second at the 200m and kept on well for a placing. Lotus Love had trouble staying in touch after breaking in the air, was still second last and three off the stands side at the 400m, steadied off a Fastalot at the 200m and hitting the line with purpose over the final 100m to add value to the First-4 in his first run back off surgery to correct a roaring condition and a step back in distance. Speedy Warrior made some ground with a return to blinkers and a sharp step down in trip, while Young Supreme was in trouble at the 100m with money coming on late.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (554) - CARING FOR THE ELDERLY HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000 Meters LOTUS LOVE began awkwardly and then became unbalanced after bumping heavily with ISLAND SPRING.

FIERCE FORCE was slow to begin.

Near the 100 Metres, FIRST CLASS was steadied away from the heels of GREY WHIZZ which shifted in after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of MEGABUCKS.

Also near the 100 Metres, LOTUS LOVE was shifted in after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of FASTALOT.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of M L Yeung (YOUNG SUPREME,) 6th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horses finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

A veterinary inspection of METRO RIDER after the race did not show any significant findings.

WELL FIT and ISLAND SPRING were sent for sampling.
