Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Cape Canaveral was patiently third from the rear along the inside, was short of room early straight and quickened nicely when gaining a clear run four deep at the 200m to get up 50m out for a third success this term and cement his position at the top of the 1010 Millions Challenge. Rainbow Fighter settled midfield outside China Power, swung the final bend with two wider out, was tight for room between runners at the 200m and finished up nicely when clear to grab second in the final few metres. Samadhi was caught three deep ahead of midfield from a wide gate, rolled forward to assume a narrow lead one off the fence at the 750m from Tomodachi and Capital K, straightened three deep and stayed on gamely, despite the hard run to shade Happy Forever and Victory General for third. Victory General saved ground along the fence in fourth, went to the lead at the 150m and lost third in the final bob. Happy Forever settled a handy fifth and one off the rails, swung the final bend with one wider out and kept coming with a steady bid to make it close for a placing with a return to the turf after a win from two runs on the dirt. Capital K was up vying for the lead with Tomodachi, rallied four-to-five wide and kept on all right after being shuffled about at the 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (257) - YIK YAM HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters GLORY HORSIE was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (swollen left hind).

Before being allowed to race again, GLORY HORSIE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Shortly after the start, SEA THE PEARLS became unbalanced when bumped by SAMADHI which was buffeted for room inside that horse and to the outside of CAPITAL K which shifted out slightly.

After this, SEA THE PEARLS was taken across behind runners.

In the early and middle stages, TOMODACHI proved very difficult to settle and raced fiercely in the lead.

Passing the 800 Metres, RAINBOW FIGHTER, which commenced to over-race, was checked away from the heels of HAPPY FOREVER which was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CAPITAL K.

SEA THE PEARLS, which was following RAINBOW FIGHTER, was severely checked away from the heels of that horse and shifted in, resulting in CAPE CANAVERAL being hampered when crowded for room.

After this, CAPE CANAVERAL was awkwardly placed close to the heels of RAINBOW FIGHTER.

Also passing the 800 Metres, CHINA POWER got its head up when racing close to the heels of VICTORY GENERAL.

Near the 500 Metres, RAINBOW FIGHTER was again awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY FOREVER.

Near the 200 Metres, RAINBOW FIGHTER was momentarily crowded for room between HAPPY FOREVER which initially got its head on the side and shifted in slightly and CAPITAL K which got its head on the side and shifted out away from the heels of SAMADHI before being corrected by its rider.

In the circumstances, no further action was taken.

Over the concluding stages, CAPITAL K was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SAMADHI.

Throughout the race, DREAM BUILDER travelled wide and after the 600 Metres was left racing without cover.

A veterinary inspection of CHINA POWER, RUMBA KING and TOMODACHI the race did not show any significant findings.

CAPE CANAVERAL and RAINBOW FIGHTER were sent for sampling.
