Recap by phillip woo

Short-priced favourite Tour De Force sat on the back of the cracking speed of Romantic City in fourth along the inside, worked to the lead three deep at the 250m and kept up a strong gallop to score an overdue win. Imperial Rome spotted them near two lengths after botching the start, but came with a sterling late burst six deep to grab Cape Canaveral in the final strides for second with a drop in grade and return to his preferred Happy Valley course. Cape Canaveral was a distant fifth in the run and one off the fence, cornered in five wide and stayed on nicely for a placing. Turf Magic travelled fourth from the rear along the fence and was running on well near the inside upon straightening. Benefactor was a distant second in the run and gave way over the final 150m. Sea The Pearls made his run outside Turf Magic, cornered with one wider out at the tail of the field and was running on late when the race was all but over. Supreme Flight travelled behind midfield and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and kept on one-paced over the last 200m. Red Lucky Star travelled in midfield and on the rails, was short of room three deep in mid-straight, but kept on one-paced over the last 150m with a clear run. Romantic City was stopping a long ways out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (080) - WILLOW HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters IMPERIAL ROME stood flat-footed at the start and was slow to begin.

Before being allowed to race again, IMPERIAL ROME will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

CAPE CANAVERAL and SUPREME FLIGHT bumped at the start.

LOVELY BOY was slow to begin and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of RED LUCKY STAR.

Near the 1000 Metres, TOUR DE FORCE was crowded for room inside LUCKY SCEPTER which got its head on the side and shifted in away from BENEFACTOR.

RED LUCKY STAR, which was following, was steadied in consequence.

Near the 200 Metres, RED LUCKY STAR shifted to the inside of the heels of BENEFACTOR to obtain clear running.

Close to the finishing line, RED LUCKY STAR was checked away from the heels of BENEFACTOR which was taken in by IMPERIAL ROME which in turn was taken in by CAPE CANAVERAL (M Chadwick) which shifted in.

M Chadwick was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

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

TOUR DE FORCE and IMPERIAL ROME were sent for sampling.
