Recap by phillip woo

Well-fancied late, Bet On Me made his run behind midfield, peeled into the clear with two wider out upon straightening and let down well to get up 60m from the line with a step up in trip. Sharema Feeling settled second from the rear, swung the final bend with one wider out, worked to a narrow lead at the 150m and found one better. Breeze Of Luck settled third from the rear and three deep, was back to second last entering the straight widest out and made a nice bid to land a placing. Potential travelled ahead of midfield and on the rails, straightened three deep, drew nearly level for the front at the 100m and was overpowered in the final 50m for a placing. Triumphant Way settled a handy fifth and two deep, rallied five wide upon straightening, poked his head in front at the 100m and couldn't hold down a barrage of runners late. Smart Guy t was finishing up nicely in an improved performance. Supreme Taiji was posted deep in midfield, straightened five wide and run peaked 100m out with every chance. Well-supported late, Quantum Express was flat over the last 100m. Favourite Mega Champion was always in tight quarters and never fully tested over the final 150m. Money went astray on Classic Figure, who was struggling 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (642) - MAKARPURA STAR HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400 Meters GRAND DANCER was withdrawn on 26.5.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (left fore tendon injury) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter CLASSIC FIGURE (W Pike).

Before being allowed to race again, GRAND DANCER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When making its way to the Parade Ring from the stabling area, FLORAL MAN broke away from its handler and proceeded back to the stable compound area.

FLORAL MAN was returned to the Parade Ring where it was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

FLORAL MAN was again inspected by the Veterinary Surgeon at the barriers who confirmed that the horse was suitable to race.

PRINCE OF SUNSHINE began awkwardly and then approaching the 800 Metres was left racing wide and without cover.

SUPREME TAIJI was slow to begin and then in the early stages proved very difficult to settle.

SMART GUY (T H So) began awkwardly and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of FLORAL MAN.

In this incident, T H So lost the use of his right iron for a short distance.

After the 1000 Metres, BET ON ME got its head up when proving difficult to settle.

Rounding the Home Turn, BREEZE OF LUCK was bumped and taken wider by SHAREMA FEELING (Z Purton) which shifted out to obtain clear running.

Z Purton was advised that whilst the Stewards encourage riders to improve their positions wherever possible, they must do so with due care.

Passing the 300 Metres, MEGA CHAMPION was shifted out away from the heels of REGAL ARMY.

Near the 150 Metres, REGAL ARMY, which was commencing to give ground, was steadied when crowded for room inside MEGA CHAMPION which shifted in when held up and awkwardly placed near the heels of TRIUMPHANT WAY which shifted in.

MEGA CHAMPION continued to be awkwardly placed close to the heels of TRIUMPHANT WAY until passing the 100 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of CLASSIC FIGURE and REGAL ARMY after the race did not show any significant findings.

MEGA CHAMPION, BET ON ME and SHAREMA FEELING were sent for sampling.
