Recap by phillip woo

Continuing the evening trend favouring runners up on the speed in the sprints, favourite Well Done punched through along the inside to lead at the 1,000m, set a steady pace while cornering a length on top and kept on gamely for the victory to continue his good run of form from late last season. Natural Flame enjoyed the box-seat run, turned the final bend one off the fence and stayed on nicely to be a good second. Regal Army made his run around midfield and one off the fence, worked to third three deep at the 200m and kept on reasonably well to hold a minor placing with some late-market support in his first try at the Valley. Impeccable eventually settled one-out, one-back in the run, rounded the final bend five wide and kept on one-paced over the last 150m. Team Work was taken back to last near the inside from a wide gate, straightened four deep with a ton to do, shifted further into the clear at the 200m and finished up nicely. Winsome pinged the gates, but decided instead to take the sit three deep in fifth, cornered in with two wider out and came up flat over the last 100m. Super Brother worked hard from a wide gate to sit outside the leader at the 800m, straightened four deep and was stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (013) - REPULSE BAY HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200 Meters Just prior to the start being effected, WINSOME became fractious and lunged at the front gates which resulted in them opening marginally prior to the remaining gates.

As the Stewards were of the view that WINSOME, 6th placegetter, had not gained an unfair advantage at the start, no further action was taken.

WELL DONE shifted in at the start and bumped AUSPICIOUS START.

Shortly after the start, WINSOME shifted in and brushed IMPECCABLE which in turn shifted in and made contact with CHARMGOLD.

From the outside barrier, TEAM WORK was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 900 Metres, NOSTALGIA became unbalanced after shifting in away from REGAL ARMY towards the running rail.

Near the 700 Metres, REGAL ARMY momentarily raced tight inside WINSOME which shifted in.

Passing the 600 Metres, REGAL ARMY became unbalanced when racing tight between NOSTALGIA and WINSOME.

When questioned, Apprentice C Y Ho stated that approaching the 1000 Metres he steadied WINSOME with a view to shifting in to a trailing position one horse off the fence behind IMPECCABLE.

He said passing the 1000 Metres he was still placed outside the heels of IMPECCABLE and was not able to immediately shift in.

He said near the 900 Metres he was able to shift in behind the heels of IMPECCABLE, however, at this time REGAL ARMY was ridden along to improve its position to the inside of WINSOME which resulted in him being unable to shift in as he had hoped.

He added that after receiving a call from the rider of REGAL ARMY, he shifted WINSOME out before again attempting to shift in after the 800 Metres.

He said however that he was not able to give sufficient clearance to REGAL ARMY and for this reason was left racing in a three wide position and for the majority of the race without cover.

WELL DONE and NATURAL FLAME were sent for sampling.
