Recap by phillip woo

Young Hero wasn't rushed early on fourth from the rear, inched forward to settle behind midfield at the 1,200m, was on the bridle while moving closer two deep approaching the final bend, cornered in five off the fence and quickened nicely to get up in the final few metres ahead of Our Dynasty for a narrow victory. Our Dynasty settled midfield and two deep, rallied five wide upon straightening and finished off nicely. He was suited by the return to the all-weather track. Favourite Perfect Joy was always handy in the run in fifth and just off the rails, straightened three deep and stayed on well. Handsome Batchelor went to the front 220m out from Gracytom after sitting on the back of the speed and was swamped inside the final 20m. Toy Story travelled fifth from the rear about seven lengths off the leader, swung the final bend with one wider out and made some ground without looking a threat of placing. Mr Marfach settled around midfield and on the rails, straightened three deep and whacked away one-paced in his dirt debut. Easter Empire only kept on passed beaten gallopers, while Gracytom found nothing under the whip over the final 150m with a ton of money coming on late.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (745) - PARKES HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650 Meters NOBODY BUT YOU was buffeted for room at the start between EASTERN EMPIRE and PERFECT JOY which shifted in marginally.

MR MARFACH was slow to begin.

BRILLIANT CHARIOT, which was fractious in the barriers, was slow to begin and from the outside barrier was shifted across behind runners shortly after the start.

Also from a wide barrier, SILVER DRAGON was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the 1300 Metres, PERFECT JOY commenced to over-race and shifted away from the heels of IMPECCABLE, resulting in PERFECT JOY making contact with ALL FRIENDS which became unbalanced.

Near the 700 Metres, OUR DYNASTY got its head on the side and shifted in, resulting in MR MARFACH being momentarily crowded for room.

Near the 500 Metres, IMPECCABLE, which was commencing to give ground, became unbalanced when bumped by ALL FRIENDS which shifted in slightly.

Shortly after entering the Straight, RAINBOW SEEKER, which was commencing to give ground, raced tight between EASTERN EMPIRE and TOY STORY.

Over the concluding stages, OUR DYNASTY again got its head on the side and lay in.

For the majority of the race, RAINBOW SEEKER travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, T Clark stated that, in his opinion, SILVER DRAGON did not handle the All Weather Track surface at its first time of asking in race conditions.

Also after the race, C K Tong stated that it had not been intended for GRACYTOM to lead, rather it had been hoped that the horse would obtain a position behind the speed if possible.

He said in the early stages he rode his mount along anticipating that IMPECCABLE would cross to race in the lead, however, GRACYTOM would not relax in the early stages and for this reason he had no alternative but to cross HANDSOME BATCHELOR to his inside and lead.

He said he attempted to restrain GRACYTOM, however, the horse proved difficult to settle throughout the race.

A veterinary inspection of SILVER DRAGON and GRACYTOM after the race did not show any significant findings.

PERFECT JOY, YOUNG HERO and OUR DYNASTY were sent for sampling.
