Recap by phillip woo

Gorgeous Life was nicely rated along the fence, came off the fence approaching the final bend, shifted into the clear at the 400m, hit the lead narrowly from Treasure Glitter at the 150m and out-dueled that one in a thriller to finally open his account at his 19th start as the firming favourite. Treasure Glitter settled midfield on the back of Gorgeous Life, pulled off a tiring Friends Support at the 250m, drew nearly level at the 150m and came up just short. Lotus Love settled two-to-three deep ahead of Gorgeous Life after a good break, straightened six deep and finished up well to narrowly grab third ahead of Dark Secret in the final 20m. In the market late, Dark Secret got going late when pulling further out into the clear at the 200m to miss a placing by a bob of the heads. Well-supported late, Mega Posh was up on the speed one off the fence and lost a placing 20m out. Polygold was held up with three outside him from the 350m to the 100m and finished up well when clear. He can be forgiven for this run. Specked late, Marvel Plus never threatened from an outside gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (055) - XIAN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400 Meters FIERY RAIDER was withdrawn on 28.9.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore foot) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter FRIENDS SUPPORT.

Before being allowed to race again, FIERY RAIDER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

From the outside barriers, NEWSWIRE TOO and MARVEL PLUS were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early stages, FIRST CLASS proved difficult to settle and raced fiercely for some distance.

FRIENDS SUPPORT raced greenly in the early and middle stages.

For some distance approaching and passing the 800 Metres, GORGEOUS LIFE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CRIMSON.

Near the 350 Metres, POLYGOLD was held up for clear running behind LOTUS LOVE and inside BLESSING WIN.

A short distance after this, LOTUS LOVE shifted out, resulting in POLYGOLD continuing to be awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse.

POLYGOLD was then unable to obtain clear running until passing the 150 Metres.

GORGEOUS LIFE and TREASURE GLITTER were sent for sampling.
