Recap by phillip woo

Drifting in the betting, Great Spirit was able to slot in with cover two off the rails and fourth from the rear from a wide draw, swung the final bend with one deeper out and rallied nicely to take control 150m out from Danewin Tiger for an easy win. Danewin Tiger made his run behind midfield and one off the rails without cover, swung the final with two further out, worked to the front at the 250m and found one too good on the evening. Getaway Guy was posted deep without cover until slotting in one-out, one-back at the 800m, straightened two off the fence and kept on gamely to inject value into the exotics. Firming late, Great Sky was hard ridden to hold a position ahead of midfield and on the rails, shifted two off the rails at the 250m and got going late to be a distant fourth. Good Directions was switched off third from the rear and one off the rails, turned the final bend widest out and was running on late without menacing in an improved effort. Turin Champion enjoyed a soft run on the back of the speed and gradually gave way over the final 150m when failing to find under pressure. Favourite Monte Castello stalked the speed in second without cover, came one off upon straightening and was struggling 250m. He didn't handle the move to the dirt.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (124)-FLAMINGO HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

GREAT SKY proved difficult to load and then became fractious after being loaded.

Before being allowed to race again, GREAT SKY will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

After being loaded, CITY POWER became fractious and got its head up on a number of occasions and then when the gates were released had its head in the air and consequently was slow to begin.

Before being allowed to race again, CITY POWER will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

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

GOOD DIRECTIONS was also taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

COSTA DEL SOL and BOOM BABY BOOM bumped at the start.

Approaching the 900 Metres, DANEWIN TIGER lost its right hind plate.

Approaching the 800 Metres, TURIN CHAMPION was steadied away from the heels of LOADS OF JOY (H W Lai) which shifted in when not properly clear.

H W Lai was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

CITY POWER made the first turn near the 700 Metres awkwardly and shifted out, resulting in BOOM BABY BOOM being taken wider.

When questioned, H W Lai stated that he had to make considerable use of LOADS OF JOY in the early stages to cross runners to his inside.

He said up in grade tonight, the horse was not able to close off the race after being pressured to take up a forward position.

A veterinary inspection of LOADS OF JOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of MONTE CASTELLO, D Whyte stated that his mount was able to take up a forward position in the early stages without having to be aggressively ridden.

He said MONTE CASTELLO, after shifting in to race outside and just behind the leader making the first turn, then travelled well and at the entrance to the Straight he expected that horse to finish off the race well.

He added however that MONTE CASTELLO came under heavy pressure shortly after entering the Straight and despite being ridden out gave ground and, in his opinion, raced disappointingly.

A veterinary inspection of MONTE CASTELLO immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

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