Recap by phillip woo

Really The Best recovered after hopping in the air at the jump to settled one off in second, worked to a narrow lead from Ferrabosco at the 300m and repelled a relentless challenge from that one for second straight win. Ferrabosco put them to sleep on the lead, straightened a length on top and kept up a cheeky gallop to be a clear-cut second. Liverpool Lad enjoyed the box-seat run, stayed on the fence upon straightening, shifted into the clear three deep at the 200m and kept on well to just shade the fancied Spicy Siam for third at a price. Spicy Siam kept coming late to just miss a placing. Mega Posh settled midfield and three deep with cover, swung the final bend with two wider out and was doing his best work late to finish just outside the placings under a feather weight for his new trainer. Favourite Bamboo Dance was doing some fine work late without menacing. He wasn't suited by the pace. Flying Keeper loomed a winning chance at the 250m and was yielding ground over the final 100m. Nicku enjoyed a nice run in fifth along the inside and was struggling mid-straight in a flat performance.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (408)-CITIBANK CITIGOLD HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1600Metres

REALLY THE BEST proved difficult to load.

Before being allowed to race again, REALLY THE BEST will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

As the start was effected, REALLY THE BEST lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently began only fairly.

From the outside barrier, LUCKY ARMY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, BAMBOO DANCE raced in restricted room between MEGA POSH and FIRST CLASS, both of which shifted ground.

In the early stages, when being steadied to obtain a position with cover, FIRST CLASS proved difficult to settle.

When being steadied to obtain a position with cover approaching and passing the 1400 Metres, CASA JUNIOR proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

After the 1000 Metres, CASA JUNIOR was left racing wide and without cover.

SPARKLING had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Near the 300 Metres, METREVELLI was shifted out away from the heels of CASA JUNIOR which was commencing to give ground.

Passing the 100 Metres, NICKU was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING KEEPER.

Approaching the 50 Metres, LUCKY ARMY was briefly crowded for room between MEGA POSH and BAMBOO DANCE, both of which shifted ground.

OCEAN ROAR travelled wide and without cover throughout the race.

A veterinary inspection of NICKU immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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