Recap by phillip woo

Creative Union travelled ahead of midfield and on the rails, shifted out poised to strike three-to-four deep at the 300m, hit the lead 150m out when gaining a gap and just held off the late-flurry of newcomer My Favorite to rack up a fourth win this campaign, despite a return to Class Four. My Favorite went forward to hold a position behind midfield and on the rails after going back early on, stayed to the inside upon straightening, shifted three deep at the 250m and finished up willingly to make it a contest at the finish. He'll be winning races. Sight Believer was effectively one-out, one-back, cornered in four deep and ran on steadily to pick up a minor placing with a move to the hood. Star Of Wai Bo enjoyed the box-seat run and kept plugging away. Regency Champion punched the breeze outside the leader Ocean Roar from a wide gate and was gradually coming back to the field over the last 150m. He has been at the mercy of bad gates in five straight runs. Favourite Sunny Pearl never let down in another disappointing performance. He has run out of excuses. Mighty Equus was making some good ground outside.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (602)-THE SANDBERG GOLD CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

CHINA POWER began awkwardly and shifted out towards the hindquarters of HAPPY HOMING.

After this, CHINA POWER was ridden to obtain a forward position, however, failed to muster speed and after travelling a short distance was taken across behind runners.

From the outside barrier, MIGHTY EQUUS was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

OHALO was also taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

CREATIVE UNION was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and passing the 300 Metres shifted out into clear running and in doing so bumped SIGHT BELIEVER which became unbalanced.

For the majority of the race, TAI PO FORTUNE travelled wide and without cover.

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

SUNNY PEARL, CREATIVE UNION and MY FAVORITE were sent for sampling.
