Recap by phillip woo

Really The Best eventually settled midfield and on the rails after a slow break, was short of room between runners upon straightening until the 200m and got up nicely in the final 20m for a third straight success. Hammered late to start favourite in betting, Mega Posh settled fifth in the run without cover three deep from a wide gate, worked to a narrow lead at the 100m and was swamped late. Firming late at odds, Chantilly was switched off second from the rear from an outside gate, swung the final bend widest out and was staying on dourly to get up late for third. He's likely to be better suited over 1,800m nowadays. Early favourite Bamboo Dance was prominently ridden in fourth and one off the rails, straightened four deep, briefly hit the front at the 200m and was yielding ground over the last 50m. He had every chance as did Casa Junior. Backstreet Fighter loomed a winning chance at the 200m and run peaked 50m out. Mr Speedy went a steady clip while hounded on his outside by Billion and was struggling 100m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (482)-MIRS BAY HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1600Metres

JUST GOOD, which was leaning on the outside of its stall, began awkwardly and lost ground.

REALLY THE BEST was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, BACKSTREET FIGHTER and CHANTILLY were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

For some distance approaching and passing the 1300 Metres, HUMONGUS raced tight inside EUPHEMISM which got its head on the side and shifted in.

Then approaching the 1200 Metres, JUST GOOD was checked when crowded for room inside HUMONGUS which was taken in slightly by EUPHEMISM which shifted in to avoid the heels of BACKSTREET FIGHTER (Z Purton) which shifted in when not properly clear.

Whilst the Stewards were of the opinion that EUPHEMISM had contributed to the incident by wanting to shift in of its own accord in the lead up to the incident, nonetheless Z Purton was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

After the 1200 Metres, EUPHEMISM was checked away from the heels of BACKSTREET FIGHTER which was being steadied to obtain a position with cover behind MEGA POSH.

After being shifted to the outside of the heels of MR SPEEDY near the 1100 Metres, BILLION go its head up on a number of occasions and raced ungenerously for a short distance.

Rounding the Home Turn, KING ON EARTH and BACKSTREET FIGHTER bumped after racing tight.

REALLY THE BEST was unable to obtain clear running in the early part of the Straight.

For the majority of the race, MEGA POSH travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of EUPHEMISM immediately following the race revealed the horse to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.

REALLY THE BEST and MEGA POSH were sent for sampling.
