Recap by phillip woo

Drifting in betting, True Courage enjoyed the box-seat run, raced to the lead three deep at the 120m and kept on nicely to score well. He's certainly capable, but very inconsistent. Odds-on favourite Naughty Baby settled midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and was hitting the line with purpose to come home a clear second. Make It settled behind midfield and just off the rails, peeled into the clear with three wider out upon straightened, forced wider out at the 250m by Naughty Baby and finished up well to snatch third in the final few strides from Fortune Together, who was hustled to lead from gate 10, cornered a length on to and kept on reasonably well. Novel Start was posted outside the leader early on before settling in the one-out, one-back position, cornered four deep and kept on evenly over the final 150m with every chance. Drifting second favourite Prosperity Aethon recovered after a sluggish break to settle just behind midfield and on the rails, rallied three deep upon straightening and only held his ground under a consistent left whip. He continues to disappoint, despite a gear change to blinkers and will require further rating relief. Speedygonzalez swung the final bend with two wider out and made some progress without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (666)-TSAP TSEUNG HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

As the start was effected, GRATIFIED, which was leaning on the inside of its stall, lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently began awkwardly.

PROSPERITY AETHON was slow to begin.

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

FLASHING GUY began awkwardly and then despite being ridden along failed to muster speed.

Then near the 1100 Metres, FLASHING GUY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of NIGHTLIGN.

Making the first turn near the 1000 Metres, SERENDIPITY was awkwardly placed inside the heels of SURFER BOY.

Near the 250 Metres, MAKE IT was shifted out away from the heels of NAUGHTY BABY which was taken out slightly by NOVEL START.

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

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

TRUE COURAGE and NAUGHTY BABY were sent for sampling.
