Recap by phillip woo

Amazing Always made his run better than midfield and just off the rails, rounded the final bend three deep and quickened nicely under an aggressive ride to take control approaching the 100m out for a maiden victory at his 10th start. He was suited by the step back in distance. Flying Supreme slotted in one off in fifth after breaking from gate 11, rallied five wide upon straightening, worked to a share of the lead at the 150m and found one too good in the end. Firming second pick, Cosmo One was allowed to find his feet in midfield with cover passing the 800m from gate 13, swung the final bend with three wider out, loomed a winning chance at the 200m and kept on steadily thereafter to secure a placing. Southern Springs stalked the leader to his outside, assumed the lead passing the 400m and gave way over the final 100m. Favourite Bernard's Choice was running on steadily late to just miss a First-4 spot. Step High held the rails behind midfield, was one-paced and then tight for room over the last 100m. Mega ran passed beaten rivals. Good Smile dictated a steady pace and was stopping approaching the 200m out. He's a better Valley prospect.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (001)-TIM MEI HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

On arrival at the Start, it was noted that BERNARDS CHOICE had lost its left front plate.

This plate was refitted.

BERNARDS CHOICE was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

MEGA was severely checked shortly after the start when crowded for room between SHARP PRINT and WAYFOONG TYCOON which shifted out abruptly despite the efforts of its rider.

In this incident, SHARP PRINT was also crowded for room out onto the hindquarters of STEP HIGH which became unbalanced.

From a wide barrier, GAIN MORE was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, EPEE DE HUA failed to muster speed.

At the 200 Metres, STEP HIGH and BERNARDS CHOICE bumped as a result of STEP HIGH attempting to improve into tight running between BERNARDS CHOICE and COSMO ONE.

Passing the 200 Metres, N Pinna (MEGA) dropped his whip.

Passing the 100 Metres, STEP HIGH was steadied when disappointed for running between BERNARDS CHOICE and COSMO ONE which shifted out and away from FLYING SUPREME which itself was shifting ground.

EPEE DE HUA, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

Because of this incident, STEP HIGH was not able to be properly tested all the way to the finishing line.

Throughout the race, JUST FOLLOW ME travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, N Pinna stated that he had been asked to ride MEGA in a midfield position if possible.

He said after being badly hampered at the start, MEGA was obliged to travel at the rear of the field in the early stages.

He said in an attempt to have MEGA positioned close to midfield as instructed, he shifted it away from the rail after the 1100 Metres in order to improve around runners in front.

He added however that he was not able to find a position close to the rail and was obliged to race wide throughout the event.

A veterinary inspection of GOOD SMILE and WAYFOONG TYCOON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BERNARDS CHOICE, AMAZING ALWAYS and FLYING SUPREME were sent for sampling.
