Recap by phillip woo

Island Spring settled fourth from last and three deep from a wide gate, swung the final bend with one wider out and ran on willingly to get up in the final 20m for the win. Favourite Lotus Love was prominently ridden one off the fence in fourth, briefly hit the front at the 80m and found one better in the end. Treasure Glitter shifted into the clear at the 400m and finished up nicely make it interesting for third. Plunged late, Seize The Day got away with an uncontested lead but found a few too smart over the last 100m. Bamboo Dance stayed on well in an improved effort with a drop in grade. Alp's Glory eventually settled in the box-seat position at the 1,200m from gate 12, enjoyed the box-seat run and was one-paced along the fence with every chance over the final 200m. Flying Keeper parked second in the run and one off the fence at the 1,200m from the widest gate and gave way over the last 150m. Dark Secret only held his ground under pressure over the final 250m in a disappointing performance.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (278)-WONG LENG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400 Metres YOUNG HAPPY was slow to begin.

BELIEVE IN CHANCE began awkwardly and then shortly after the start, along with DR UNION, was crowded for room between OCEAN BRIGHT and ALP'S GLORY, both of which shifted ground.

After this, BELIEVE IN CHANCE was taken across behind runners and then finished tailed out.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on BELIEVE IN CHANCE at the request of Trainer P O'Sullivan.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination found the horse to be a "roarer".

He also reported that BELIEVE IN CHANCE was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being permitted to race again, BELIEVE IN CHANCE will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Despite being vigorously ridden along in the early stages, ISLAND SPRING failed to muster speed and was taken back behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 850 Metres, NEWSWIRE TOO raced in restricted room between OCEAN BRIGHT and YOUNG HAPPY which shifted out slightly.

Approaching and passing the 600 Metres, LOTUS LOVE and DARK SECRET raced tight as LOTUS LOVE attempted to shift DARK SECRET to the running rail behind ALP'S GLORY.

Approaching the 300 Metres, ALP'S GLORY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SEIZE THE DAY.

Approaching the 50 Metres, DARK SECRET was steadied when crowded for room between FLYING KEEPER and ALP'S GLORY which shifted out.

Throughout the race, DR UNION travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of DARK SECRET after the race did not show any significant findings.

ISLAND SPRING and LOTUS LOVE were sent for sampling.
