Recap by phillip woo

Super Strike was rated in midfield and two deep, cornered in with one wider out and kept coming late to get up in the final few metres for a second success from four starts over this course and distance. Punted late, Hei Hei Posh was prominently ridden in fourth and one off the fence, rushed forward on the back of a slow pace to sit outside the leader Kensworth Kid at the 1,200m, gained a length advantage rounding the final bend and kept plugging away late to out-bob Good Thinker for second. Good Thinker sat on the back of the speed in third along the rails, peeled into the clear four deep upon straightening, got into a bumping match with Hei Hei Posh over the last 100m and just came up short for second. Glory Of India was switched off at the rear from a wide gate, cornered in five wide and made some progress late to fill the frame a distant fourth. Secretary Of State settled third from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend widest out and made some ground late without menacing. Favourite Mr Marfach was a handy fifth along the fence, came one off at the 1,200m, was asked for an effort three deep at the 500m, swung the final bend with two wider out and kept on one-paced over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (196) - KOKURA HANDICAP - Class 4 - 2200 Meters SUPER STRIKE was crowded for room at the start between HEI HEI POSH and TIPPERARY DAVOR, both of which shifted ground.

From the outside barrier, GLORY OF INDIA was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 1500 Metres, HAPPY SCORE got its head up for a considerable distance when proving difficult to settle.

Near the 1300 Metres, HAPPY SCORE, which was continuing to prove very difficult to settle, improved into tight running inside MR MARFACH.

A short distance after this, HAPPY SCORE was checked when MR MARFACH shifted in slightly.

As the Stewards were of the opinion that this incident was attributable to the racing manners of HAPPY SCORE, no further action was taken.

Passing the 1100 Metres, MR MARFACH got its head on the side and shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of HEI HEI POSH.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, HAPPY SCORE continued to get its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of GOOD THINKER.

Then passing the 1000 Metres, HAPPY SCORE was checked away from the heels of GOOD THINKER and in doing so shifted out, resulting in MR MARFACH being taken wider.

After this, HAPPY SCORE continued to over-race and approaching the 800 Metres was shifted out away from the heels of MR MARFACH and allowed to stride forward.

After the 200 Metres, HEI HEI POSH got its head on the side and shifted out and near the 150 Metres brushed GOOD THINKER.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that SUPER STRIKE had lost its left hind plate.

A veterinary inspection of CLEMENT SPIRIT and MR MARFACH after the race did not show any significant findings.

MR MARFACH, SUPER STRIKE and HEI HEI POSH were sent for sampling.
