Recap by phillip woo

Real General enjoyed the box-seat run, stayed to the inside upon straightening, hit the front 150m out and kept up a good gallop to score for a third time this season. Plunged late, Twin Turbo settled behind midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished up nicely to get into the runner-up spot in the final strides. Sight Lover made his run fourth and one off the rails, rallied five deep upon straightening, worked to second at the 50m and kept on well for third in his initial run at the Valley. Secretary Of State travelled fourth from the rear and one off the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and was doing some fine work late to just finish outside the placings. He'll certainly be an interesting win proposition with Class Five on the horizon for him. Ray's Favourite was posted deep in fourth, rolled to second at the 1,100m, briefly hit the front three deep at the 250m from Super Goal Elite and was swallowed up passing the 100m. Diligent III made his run second from the rear after a slow break, circled the field at the 600m, turned the final bend widest out and was only grinding passed beaten rivals. Leeli's Star enjoyed a soft run along the fence ahead of midfield, rallied four deep upon straightening and kept on rather one-paced over the last 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (558)-NORFOLK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Metres

On arrival at the barriers, T Angland expressed concern regarding the action of REAL GENERAL.

An examination of REAL GENERAL by the Veterinary Officer found that horse to be suitable to race.

DILIGENT III began awkwardly and was hampered shortly after the start when SIGHT LOVER shifted out on jumping.

From a wide barrier, ABLE MAGIC was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the 400 Metres, VIVA GUY was hampered when attempting to improve into tight running between NOSTALGIA and SECRETARY OF STATE where there was insufficient room.

Rounding the Home Turn, SUPER GOAL ELITE got its head on the side and lay out.

Near the 200 Metres, ABLE MAGIC, which was racing tight inside BET ON ME, was steadied when crowded for room between that horse and SECRETARY OF STATE which shifted out marginally when racing close to the heels of SIGHT LOVER.

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

Near the 150 Metres, VIVA GUY was shifted out away from the heels of SUPER GOAL ELITE.

In the Straight, TWIN TURBO got its head on the side and lay in under pressure.

DILIGENT III, REAL GENERAL and TWIN TURBO were sent for sampling.
