Recap by phillip woo

London China Town was able to slot over with cover in fourth and one off the fence from gate 10, cornered in four deep and responded nicely to get up 50m out for the win with some late-market action in his season debut. Charity Spirit settled fifth along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and got up in the final bob from Good Boy Boy for second. Favourite Good Boy Boy failed to clear for the lead with Final Answer underneath him, gained a length advantage soon after straightening and went down fighting. Windicator Power delayed the start when breaking through the stalls. He jumped slowly and made his run second from the rear and near the inside, straightened two deep, shifted outside a wall of horses four deep at the 100m and finished nicely to just miss a placing in an improved performance. Diamond Elegance made his run behind midfield and two deep, peeled into the clear with one wider out upon straightening and finished up well in a battle for minors. Final Answer pestered Good Boy Boy on the speed and only gave way for a placing in the final 100m in his season debut off an injury . Choice Treasure settled behind midfield and on the rails, straightened four deep and kept on one-paced.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (202) - NAKAYAMA HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1000 Meters After being loaded and prior to the start being effected, WINDICATOR POWER became fractious and broke through the front gates.

WINDICATOR POWER was returned to the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

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

WINDICATOR POWER was then slow to begin.

CHOICE TREASURE was checked on jumping when crowded for room between FINAL ANSWER and CHARITY SPIRIT which shifted in.

In this incident, CHOICE TREASURE made heavy contact with the hindquarters of FINAL ANSWER, resulting in that horse becoming badly unbalanced.

From the outside barrier, GO BABY GO was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

At the entrance to the Straight, ALL VICTORY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HANDSOME HANDSOME.

Throughout the race, AMEDEO travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of HANDSOME HANDSOME and ALL VICTORY after the race did not show any significant findings.

GOOD BOY BOY, LONDON CHINA TOWN and CHARITY SPIRIT were sent for sampling.
