Recap by phillip woo

Legendary Dragon crossed over from a wide gate to settle one-out, one-back in the run, cornered in five wide and out-dueled Talley Close over the final 200m to remain unbeaten in four starts over this course-and-distance. Talley Close made his run in midfield and two deep after copping a check at the 1,000m from the eventual winner Legendary Dragon, swung the final bend with two wider out, nearly leveled up for the front at the 200m and couldn't overhaul the winner. Favourite Charles The Great settled behind midfield and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and made steady ground late to just grab third ahead of a fast-finishing Jun Gong, who made his run third from the rear and two deep, pushed into the clear widest out at the 300m and ran on spiritedly in a very encouraging debut performance. Flying Smart made his run fourth from the rear and two deep, stayed near the inside and was getting going late along the inside to finish just outside the placings. Romantic City cornered nearly two lengths on top, still held a narrow advantage at the 150m and found little over the final 100m. Plunged late, Windicator Power settled behind midfield and on the rails, was caught in traffic between runners three or four deep until the 150m and kept on evenly thereafter. Good Words had to steady off a tiring Touch Go at the 200m and whacked on one-paced over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (655) - WYNDHAM HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200 Meters CHARLES THE GREAT began awkwardly.

Making the first turn after the 1100 Metres, FLYING SMART shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of CHARLES THE GREAT which became unbalanced.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, TALLEY CLOSE was steadied away from the heels of LEGENDARY DRAGON (M Du Plessis) which shifted in when not properly clear.

M Du Plessis was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

In the early stages, TOUCH GO was left racing wide and without cover and after the 1000 Metres was allowed to improve its position.

Approaching the 200 Metres, WINDICATOR POWER was steadied when improving into a tight run between CHARITY SPIRIT and GOOD WORDS, both of which shifted ground.

When GOOD WORDS was shifted back in to relieve the tightening to WINDICATOR POWER, FLYING SMART was momentarily inconvenienced.

After the 150 Metres, TOUCH GO got its head on the side and lay in, resulting in GOOD WORDS being inconvenienced.

Close to the finishing line, WINDICATOR POWER got its head on the side and shifted in towards GOOD WORDS, resulting in its rider, B Prebble, correcting his mount.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that TALLEY CLOSE had lost its right hind plate.

A veterinary inspection of GOOD WORDS and TOUCH GO after the race did not show any significant findings.

CHARLES THE GREAT, LEGENDARY DRAGON and TALLEY CLOSE were sent for sampling.
