Recap by phillip woo

Able Magic settled third from the rear and two deep, was a handful when coming onto heels at the 600m, straightened in a heap of traffic, switched into the clear at the 350m and quickened nicely to get up a few metres from the line for a nice win with a drop in grade. Punted late, Gorgeous Life moved up to punch the breeze in second at the 800m, hit the front 400m out and kept on gamely to hold early favourite Scent Of Osmanthus for second. Scent Of Osmanthus was relaxed in a two-deep position behind midfield, cornered in four deep and kept plugging away. Real General was a prominently ridden and kept on OK with every chance. Victory Ide Say was held up with two wider out until switching into the clear at the 300m and was hitting the line with purpose. He appears capable of getting away with a run at this level. Telecom Top Star clipped heels at the 500m, turned the final bend with one wider out and ran on steadily. He may be a better prospect over the 1,200m. Diamond Angel was struggling to pick up under the whip 150m out. Mega Posh was short of room along the inside and can forget the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (151) - PANASONIC BREAD MAKER HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400 Meters NEWSWIRE TOO was slow to begin.

MARVEL PLUS was slow to begin and then shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of DIAMOND ANGEL.

REAL GENERAL got its head on the side shortly after the start, shifted out and in doing so bumped GORGEOUS LIFE.

From the outside barrier, VICTORY IDE SAY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 1100 Metres, DIAMOND ANGEL was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 900 Metres, ABLE MAGIC proved difficult to settle and got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SCENT OF OSMANTHUS.

When the tempo of the race slackened near the 700 Metres, MARVEL PLUS commenced to prove difficult to settle and was checked away from the heels of MEGA POSH which in turn was steadied away from the heels of PETIT PRINCE.

At the same time, SCENT OF OSMANTHUS was shifted out when being checked away from the heels of REAL GENERAL and in doing so made contact with LOVING ALL.

NEWSWIRE TOO and VICTORY IDE SAY, which were following MARVEL PLUS, were checked in consequence.

ABLE MAGIC, which was continuing to prove difficult to settle, shifted out abruptly after being awkwardly placed outside the hindquarters of MARVEL PLUS and in doing so shifted out and made heavy contact with the hindquarters of SHINING TREASURES which became badly unbalanced.

TELECOM TOP STAR, which was following ABLE MAGIC, shifted out abruptly away from the heels of that horse and in doing so blundered.

Shortly after the 400 Metres, MEGA POSH was steadied when disappointed for running inside PETIT PRINCE which was commencing to give ground.

VICTORY IDE SAY had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

In the Straight, TELECOM TOP STAR (A Suborics) got its head on the side and lay in and then at the 200 Metres the whip of A Suborics was knocked from his grasp by the whip of Z Purton (ABLE MAGIC).

When questioned, D Whyte stated that, from barrier 4, he rode DIAMOND ANGEL into a forward position as instructed.

He said he anticipated GORGEOUS LIFE would shift over across onto the rail which would allow DIAMOND ANGEL the opportunity to be positioned outside of that horse one horse off the rail.

He said however that after obtaining a position one horse off the rail, GORGEOUS LIFE remained racing in that position rather than shifting over to the rail and as REAL GENERAL had established its position behind GORGEOUS LIFE, he was left racing three wide and after the 900 Metres without cover.

A veterinary inspection of SHINING TREASURES and MEGA POSH after the race did not show any significant findings.

MEGA POSH, ABLE MAGIC and GORGEOUS LIFE were sent for sampling.
