Recap by phillip woo

Bless Us All settled third from the rear and one off the fence behind a good tempo, straightened five deep and quickened nicely to get up in the final 50m for the win. Seize The Day travelled prominently one off the fence in fourth, straightened four deep and kept on well to run down Fascinating Smile for second. Late-fancied favourite, Fascinating Smile worked hard from gate 10 to clear a stubborn Golden Insight for the lead at the 700m, circled the final bend two lengths on top, was still clearly on top at the 150m and was swamped late. Crimson settled midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend with two wider out and stayed on much better to fill the frame in fourth. Plunged late, Asmodai pressed forward from the widest gate to sit deep on the speed in second or third at the 600m, straightened near three off the fence and kept on evenly over the last 150m. Punted late, Caga Spirit bided his time behind midfield and two deep, was held-up when cornering in with one wider out, gained a clear run at the 200m and made some ground late without menacing. Early favourite Bingo Bingo was posted three deep behind midfield, turned the final bend widest out and never got into the act.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (684) - BIRCH HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200 Meters The Veterinary Officer said that LINKED WIN, which was reported to have twisted its right front plate in transit to the course, had been replated and was found suitable to race.

WORLD WAY was slow to begin.

SEIZE THE DAY was crowded for room at the start between CRIMSON and HEY HA MASTER which shifted out.

At the 1000 Metres, BLESS US ALL was checked when crowded for room between BINGO BINGO and CAGA SPIRIT which got its head on the side and hung out.

Passing the 1000 Metres, HEY HA MASTER commenced to over-race and shifted out when being checked away from the heels of GOLDEN INSIGHT.

Near the 850 Metres, CAGA SPIRIT and BINGO BINGO bumped on two occasions.

Approaching the 600 Metres, CAGA SPIRIT got its head on the side and proved difficult to settle when racing close to the heels of CRIMSON.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, GOLDEN INSIGHT got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of FASCINATING SMILE.

Passing the 600 Metres, BINGO BINGO was left racing wide and without cover.

Shortly after entering the Straight, CAGA SPIRIT was steadied when disappointed for running between BINGO BINGO and CRIMSON which shifted out.

In this incident, CAGA SPIRIT made contact with BINGO BINGO, resulting in that horse becoming unbalanced.

LINKED WIN had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 100 Metres was checked away from the heels of CRIMSON when unable to improve.

At the 200 Metres, EASY TRACK, which was laying in, was steadied away from the heels of GOLDEN INSIGHT which was giving ground.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of BINGO BINGO, M Chadwick stated that his mount was obliged to race further back in the field than had been intended after it became unbalanced and lost ground shortly after the start after shifting out towards the heels of FASCINATING SMILE which also shifted in.

He said after this incident he was not able to obtain a position closer to the rail than three wide albeit that he had cover until after the 600 Metres.

He said, in his opinion, the circumstances of tonights race contributed to the horses performance.

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

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that GOLDEN INSIGHT had bled from both nostrils.

FASCINATING SMILE, BLESS US ALL and SEIZE THE DAY were sent for sampling.
