Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Scarlet Camellia enjoyed the perfect trip in fourth and one off the fence, straightened three deep, hit the lead at the 150m out and kept on well to remain unbeaten in three outings for jockey Zac Purton. Danzulu made his run third from the rear and three deep, swung the final bend with one wider out and ran on willingly to overhaul Xilai Xianzi in the final 20m. Xilai Xianzi settled midfield and one off with cover, rallied five wide upon straightening and ran on well to be a clear third. Jimson The Best went a good clip on the speed, with Ancient Kingdom posted to his outside, straightened a half-length on top and repelled that same rival to just hold fourth prize. Ancient Kingdom ranged up to prompt the pace at the 1,000m, nearly drew level for the front at the 200m and kept plugging away. Peppermint settled behind midfield and two deep, hit the straight with two wider out and made some ground. He'll come on for this run off a short break. Holy Mac saved ground in midfield, straightened two deep and kept on one-paced under a hustling ride. Specked late, The Only Kid bided his time at or second from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend widest out and never was a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (646) - ORIENTAL EXPRESS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600 Meters CHAMPAGNE DAYS was withdrawn on 25.5.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore).

Before being allowed to race again, CHAMPAGNE DAYS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

JIMSON THE BEST began awkwardly and bumped PEPPERMINT.

Near the 1300 Metres, ANCIENT KINGDOM shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SCARLET CAMELLIA.

After this, ANCIENT KINGDOM was not able to be shifted back in behind SCARLET CAMELLIA and when racing wide and without cover was allowed to stride into a more forward position after the 1200 Metres.

At the 600 Metres, FUN HEROES was steadied away from the heels of XILAI XIANZI.

Passing the 100 Metres, PEPPERMINT was momentarily crowded for room between XILAI XIANZI and DANZULU.

When questioned, W C Marwing (HOLY MAC) stated that at its last start when successful the horse responded well to hard riding.

He said in todays race the horse responded well to his riding in the early part of the Straight, however, near the 250 Metres his whip was knocked from his grasp by the whip of C K Tong (AMITYSHIP).

He said after this he was only able to ride the horse out vigorously hands and heels and it finished off the race only steadily.

A veterinary inspection of HOLY MAC after the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had lost its left hind plate.

SCARLET CAMELLIA and DANZULU were sent for sampling.
