Recap by phillip woo

Drifting in the betting, Winning Leader was handily ridden in fifth and one off the fence, straightened three-to-four deep and wore down firming favourite Mighty K 80m out with an ideal step up to 1,400m. He's got ability and remains one to follow up to a mile. Mighty K was happy to enjoy the sit in second one off the fence as Fresh Air worked to the lead from a wide gate, assumed the lead 400m out and kept on gamely to be a clear second. It Has To Be You was rated with cover three deep in midfield, rounded the final bend five wide and got going in the final 50m to run down Plentiful for a placing. Plentiful was handy to the speed in fourth and one off the fence, cornered in three deep and lost a placing in the final few metres. Ancient Kingdom was posted without cover in third, was still in a hunt for a placing until the last 100m. The Fast Lane made his run fourth from the rear and three deep, swung the final bend with two wider out and made some ground. He needed the run after the break. Open Sesame was taken back from the widest gate, before pinching ground along the rails to settle behind midfield at the 600m, turned the final bend four deep and was grinding away without looking a threat. Champagne Days settled third from the back and two deep, turned the final bend with one wider out and was another running on without threatening. Fresh Air was given an uncontested lead, cornered a half-length on top and was out of contention 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (720) - THE RACING CLUB HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400 Meters B Prebble (MIGHTY K) was fined $5,000 for weighing in after the race 2 lbs overweight.

MASTER GUNNER was slow to begin.

WINNING LEADER shifted out at the start and bumped ANCIENT KINGDOM.

After being crossed by PLENTIFUL, HAPPY CERAMIBO proved very difficult to settle and near the 900 Metres was checked away from the heels of that horse.

For some distance after this, HAPPY CERAMIBO continued to prove difficult to settle.

Approaching the 800 Metres, ANCIENT KINGDOM was left racing wide and without cover.

When questioned, C K Tong stated that he had been instructed to take up a more forward position on PLENTIFUL as, in the opinion of the connections, today's track had been favouring horses that had been ridden on the pace.

He said it had been hoped that PLENTIFUL would be able to obtain a position in about 5th or 6th placing if possible.

He said in accordance with his instructions, he rode PLENTIFUL along in the early stages, however, when a number of runners were positioned to his inside, he was obliged to continue forward on PLENTIFUL rather than remain racing wide.

He said this resulted in PLENTIFUL racing in a position slightly more forward than had been intended.

Mr P F Yiu, trainer of PLENTIFUL, confirmed the instructions given to C K Tong and said that it was not intended for PLENTIFUL to be ridden as far forward as it was, however, the circumstances of the race resulted in PLENTIFUL being ridden slightly more forward than had been intended.

WINNING LEADER and MIGHTY K were sent for sampling.
