Recap by phillip woo

Really The Best broke left at the break, rolled to a narrow lead at 1,200m from Gorgeous Ruler, straightened a length on top, kicked two lengths clear at the 200m and had just enough to fend off the fast-finishing Bamboo Dance and favourite Global Fame for an upset win at his 11h start. Bamboo Dance rushed forward to settle ahead of midfield after breaking sluggishly, was kept to the inside upon straightening, came off the fence at the 150m and finished up nicely with the blinkers added. He's come right in two runs at this level and looks ready to win. Global Fame was short of room upon straightening, shifted into the clear at the 200m and extended well to make it interesting at the finish. He's been luckless in two outings at this level and only needs a clean sheet to be opening his account. Nicku was another who was short of room early straight and got up 50m out for fourth. Treasure Glitter enjoyed the box-seat run and kept on evenly over the final 150m with every chance. Ferrabosco whacked away one-paced over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (342)-THE LION HERALD HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1600 Metres The start was delayed when the tongue tie applied to FERRABOSCO required replacing behind the barriers.

BAMBOO DANCE began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped SMART GUY.

FERRABOSCO, TREASURE GLITTER and GLOBAL FAME were all crowded for room at the start between REALLY THE BEST and TOP POWER, both of which shifted ground.

From wide barriers, YOUNG HAPPY and SAMMYS FORTUNE were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the 900 Metres, NICKU was crowded for room inside GLOBAL FAME which got its head on the side and shifted in slightly when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FERRABOSCO.

After being held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight, GLOBAL FAME was shifted to the outside of FERRABOSCO passing the 300 Metres.

For some distance after this, GLOBAL FAME raced in restricted room between FERRABOSCO and YOUNG HAPPY.

Passing the 400 Metres, TREASURE GLITTER and GORGEOUS RULER bumped on a number of occasions as TREASURE GLITTER shifted out to obtain clear running.

HAPPY EAGLE, which was travelling outside GORGEOUS RULER, was inconvenienced in consequence and TOP POWER, which was following GORGEOUS RULER, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse.

NICKU was held up for clear running until near the 350 Metres.

Near the 100 Metres, the whip of O Doleuze (TREASURE GLITTER) was knocked from his grasp by the whip of Apprentice K C Ng (GORGEOUS RULER).

Throughout the race, HAPPY EAGLE travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of NICKU and TOP POWER after the race did not show any significant findings.

GLOBAL FAME, REALLY THE BEST and BAMBOO DANCE were sent for sampling.
