Recap by phillip woo

Lotus Love never obtained cover from gate 14 early on, before settling two off at the 1,200m in fourth position, worked to the lead at the 250m and dew clear to score after placing in his first three runs this term. Just Good settled fourth from the rear and along the rails, stayed near the inside upon straightening, shifted into the open passing the 200m and finished up nicely to get up for second at the 100m. Dr Union settled around midfield and three deep with cover, swung the final bend five wide, got to third at the 100m and held off the late surge of Lucky Army. The latter settled at the rear from a wide gate, swung the final bend widest out and ran on willingly. Fastplus Master's run peaked 100m out, while favourite Global Fame copped a check between runners at the 150m and kept grinding away. Sunshine Boy recovered after a tardy break to settle midfield and on the rails and kept on evenly. Gorgeous Life worked to the lead from a middle alley and was giving way passing the 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (324)-RIGHT WAY HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400 Metres LUCKY ARMY began awkwardly.

SUNSHINE BOY was slow to begin.

DR UNION shifted out at the start, resulting in GLOBAL FAME being inconvenienced.

Near the 1200 Metres, FASTPLUS MASTER was momentarily awkwardly placed outside the heels of METREVELLI.

Approaching the 400 Metres, NEWSWIRE TOO was steadied when disappointed for running between DR UNION and FASTPLUS MASTER which shifted out.

GLOBAL FAME was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 250 Metres shifted in and bumped SUNSHINE BOY.

When being shifted to the outside of runners after the 400 Metres, POLYGOLD was held up for clear running until passing the 350 Metres.

For some distance after the 200 Metres, GLOBAL FAME was steadied when disappointed for running between FASTPLUS MASTER which shifted in marginally and SUNSHINE BOY which was taken out slightly by JUST GOOD which shifted away from the heels of LUCKY TYCOON as that horse was giving ground.

As the Stewards were satisfied that there was no rider error involved in this incident, no further action was taken.

Throughout the race, LOTUS LOVE travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of CLASSIC FIGURE after the race revealed the horse to have bled from both nostrils.

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

GLOBAL FAME, LOTUS LOVE and JUST GOOD were sent for sampling.
