Recap by phillip woo

Favourite California Bounty showed terrific gate speed to easily cross from gate eight, turned a length on top and kept finding to score back-to-back wins with a switch to the Valley. He's a rising sprinter and remains one to follow. Able Speed was niggled along in midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with three wider out and was closing with each stride late to finish a close second in an improved performance. He's likely to have reached a rating bottom. Super Plus was posted deep without cover in fourth, rallied six deep upon straightening and kept grinding away late to overhaul Good Boy Boy to inject value into the tierce. Punted late, Good Boy Boy failed to match the speed of California Bounty and held the rails in second or third, stayed to the inside upon straightening and was swamped late for a placing. Charity Spirit travelled better than midfield and on the rails, straightened underneath Super Plus and ran on steadily to just miss a First-4 spot. London China Town settled worse than midfield and one off the rails, rallied five wide upon straightening and was never properly tested over the last 100m. Plunged late, Shahjee made his run second from the rear and three deep, peeled into the clear with one wider out upon straightening and never did let down.

Racing Incident Report


After being loaded, WINDICATOR STAR became fractious and after beginning awkwardly was crowded for room shortly after the start between CALIFORNIA BOUNTY and ARRIVED AHEAD.

In this incident, WINDICATOR STAR lost ground.

SKY MASCOT lost ground when crowded for room at the start between ABLE SPEED and SIMPLE which shifted out.

Passing the 750 Metres, GOOD BOY BOY, which was travelling keenly, was steadied away from the heels of CALIFORNIA BOUNTY (M L Yeung) which shifted in when not properly clear.

M L Yeung was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

For some distance approaching and passing the 700 Metres, LONDON CHINA TOWN was awkwardly placed inside the heels of ABLE SPEED and near the 500 Metres was steadied away from the heels of that horse.

For some distance after the 700 Metres, SKY MASCOT got its head up when over-racing and awkwardly placed close to the heels of CHARITY SPIRIT.

Approaching and passing the 200 Metres, LONDON CHINA TOWN had difficulty obtaining clear running and over the concluding stages was awkwardly placed inside the heels of SUPER PLUS which got its head on the side and shifted in away from ABLE SPEED.

Close to the finishing line, SKY MASCOT became unbalanced when bumped by WINDICATOR STAR which shifted in away from the heels of ARRIVED AHEAD which was giving ground.

Throughout the race, SUPER PLUS travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, SIMPLE collapsed.

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

SIMPLE, CALIFORNIA BOUNTY and ABLE SPEED were sent for sampling.
