Recap by phillip woo

Well-fancied late to jump favourite, China Delight enjoyed a dream run on the back of the speed from gate one, cruised to the front three deep at the 200m and edged clear for a nice win on his season debut. He can win another. Super Team settled three back on the rails behind China Delight, took the longer route when shifting into the clear with three wider out and finished nicely to edge out Yuan's Fortune 50m out for second. Yuan's Fortune was on the back of Super Team in the run behind midfield, came one off upon straightening and ran on steadily to make it a ding-dong battle for the minors. Ray's Favourite settled effectively one-out, one-back, rallied five deep upon straightening and kept plugging away without really looking a place chance. Step High settled third last along the rails, rounded the final bend six deep and was doing some fine work late. He wasn't suited by the pace. Dynamic Cross got away with an easy lead, kicked two lengths clear upon straightening and was stopping 100m out in a surprisingly flat performance. All Lucky was never a factor after missing the kick when getting his feet in the air at the jump. Top Power sat outside Super Team in the run, swung the final bend with one wider out and came up flat over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (092)-CHICAGO HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

As the start was effected, ALL LUCKY lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, STEP HIGH, EMPIRE CITY and OPTIMIZATION STAR were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, DREAM PARTNER was steadied away from the heels of YUANS FORTUNE (A Suborics) which, when being shifted in, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of TOP POWER which was being steadied to obtain cover behind MEGA CASTLE.

After this, DREAM PARTNER proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

A Suborics was advised that whilst there was some circumstances to this incident, nonetheless he must ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

Passing the 1300 Metres, OPTIMIZATION STAR commenced to prove difficult to settle and shifted out abruptly when awkwardly placed close to the heels of DREAM PARTNER which was continuing to travel keenly and shifted out away from the heels of YUANS FORTUNE.

After being ridden along to obtain a position inside ALL LUCKY which shifted out marginally near the 800 Metres, STEP HIGH was crowded for room inside ALL LUCKY passing the 700 Metres when that horse shifted back in to resume its position.

CHINA DELIGHT and SUPER TEAM were sent for sampling.
