Recap by phillip woo

Best-backed late, Empire City settled three back along the rails, peeled five deep upon straightening and powered home to take control 20m out for the win with an important drop in grade, despite a step back in trip. Hurry Hurry Up went an even clip after being hard ridden to lead early on, cornered a half-length on top and kept on gamely to hold second. Favourite Enjoy The Fun settled a length back in second and one off, straightened three deep and whacked on with threatening the top pair with every chance. Fortune Territory settled box-seat, came one off upon straightening and kept on steadily late to just miss a placing. Creative Union eventually made his run third from the rear along the fence, shifted into the clear with two wider out at the 300m and was finishing up full of run, despite striking an unfavourable pace. He's come right in his past couple of runs and may be looking for 1,400m as well. Megabucks settled in the one-out, one-back position, straightened four deep and only held his ground over the final 150m. Just Good recovered off a sluggish break to settle behind midfield and on the rails, swung the final bend six deep and made some progress late without ever looking a chance as the firming second pick.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (436)-TIN LOK HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

JUST GOOD was slow to begin.

From the outside barriers, CREATIVE UNION and FUN AND FAST were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, GOAL AND GOLD, which had commenced to be shifted across behind runners, became unbalanced when bumped by RAINBOW SEEKER which itself was taken in by PAR EXCELLENCE which began awkwardly and got its head up on a number of occasions.

Passing the 800 Metres, NATURAL FLAME was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of MEGABUCKS when being shifted in to obtain a position behind that horse with cover.

Rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, NATURAL FLAME got its head on the side and hung out.

At the entrance to the Straight, CREATIVE UNION was shifted out across the heels of PAR EXCELLENCE to obtain clear running.
