Recap by phillip woo

Firming late to jump favourite, Beauty Sparkle showed good gate speed to hold the rails in second, shot clear for the lead at the 600m, straightened a length on top and kept up a strong gallop to open his win account. He's really turned the corner following a stable change to Tony Cruz. Early favourite, Bundle Of Joy went forward deep on the course from gate nine to eventually lead one off the rails rounding the first bend, was headed 600m out, cornered three deep with every chance and found one better on the evening. Mr Ginger settled fourth from the rear and one off the rails, rallied five deep upon straightening and ran on reasonably well off a big weight to take third. Formula Won was patiently ridden second from the rear, swung the final bend with three wider out and was doing some nice work late to get into the First-4. Precision King had the leaders in his sights in a one-out, one-back position, straightened four deep and kept on one-paced over the final 150m. He'll need to strike some easier opposition, Diamond Elegance made his run behind midfield and on the rails, straightened three deep and ran on steadily without menacing. Croesus travelled third from the rear, veered out sharply at the 500m, swung the final bend widest out and only kept on passed beaten rivals.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (669)-BROOM HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

STARTING OVER and DIAMOND ELEGANCE bumped at the start.

A short distance after the start, STARTING OVER and FORMULA WON were crowded for room between DIAMOND ELEGANCE which shifted out and COUR VALANT which shifted in after being bumped by PRECISION KING.

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

When left racing wide in the early stages, AMEDEO was taken across behind runners passing the 700 Metres.

Approaching the 600 Metres, HAWTHORNE was left racing wide and without cover and then was taken wider passing the 500 Metres when COUR VALANT shifted out away from the heels of PRECISION KING.

Approaching the 500 Metres, CROESUS shifted out away from the heels of AMEDEO.

At the entrance to the Straight, COUR VALANT got its head on the side and shifted out away from FORMULA WON which was being shifted to the outside of MR GINGER into clear running.

Passing the winning post, BEAUTY SPARKLE shifted out abruptly.

A veterinary inspection of CROESUS immediately following the race revealed the horse to be lame in its left front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, CROESUS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

BEAUTY SPARKLE and BUNDLE OF JOY were sent for sampling.
