Recap by phillip woo

Bingo Bingo had never placed in 17 previous starts, but sat a handy fourth along the fence, straightened three deep and wore down favourite Fascinating Smile in the final stride for the win with late-betting support. Fascinating Smile was aggressively ridden to lead, cornered a length on top and stayed on a clear second best with the key services of Brett Prebble for the first time. He's ready to win. Megabucks settled effectively one-out, one-back, straightened two deep and stayed on reasonably well for a placing. Flying Keeper made his run third from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend with one wider out and was finishing best of all late to snare fourth. He's a better prospect over an additional furlong. Marvel Plus was posted three deep on the speed without cover, rounded the final bend four deep and loomed a place chance at the 100m, before peaking 50m out. Dragon Choice settled three back and on the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and only held his ground in the run to the line. Dashing Ace stalked the leader to his outside, cornered in three deep, was tight for room between runners at the 200m and gave way 100m out. Specked late, Lots Of Fun mustered to settle third from the rear after a sluggish break, cornered in one off the fence and failed to lengthen under pressure. Think Big rounded the final bend widest out and never a danger.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (582) - SAPPORO HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000 Meters LOTS OF FUN began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, HEXAGON was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, FLYING KEEPER raced tight between MARVEL PLUS and DRAGON CHOICE.

At the 600 Metres, DRAGON CHOICE became unbalanced after being bumped by SEIZE THE DAY which got its head on the side and shifted in away from THINK BIG.

Passing the 600 Metres, HEXAGON shifted out and bumped the headquarters of CRIMSON.

Near the 550 Metres, BINGO BINGO got its head on the side and shifted out.

Near the 500 Metres, FLYING KEEPER shifted in and bumped LOTS OF FUN.

Shortly after entering the Straight, MEGABUCKS raced in restricted room between DASHING ACE which shifted in slightly and BINGO BINGO which shifted out away from the heels of FASCINATING SMILE to obtain clear running.

For the majority of the race, THINK BIG and MARVEL PLUS travelled wide and without cover.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of J Lloyd (DRAGON CHOICE), 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 DASHING ACE after the race did not show any significant findings.

BINGO BINGO and FASCINATING SMILE were sent for sampling.
