Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Ensemble showed superior gate speed to lead, handed up to settle second and one off at the 800m, shifted four-to-five deep upon straightening and took control passing the 200m to chalk up a third win from four starts this season as a pick-up ride for Joao Moreira. Straight Gold settled fore of midfield and one off the rails, steadied four deep at the 300m by Ensemble and finished up nicely when balancing up to claim a Quinella spot 50m out. Charity Spirit was posted without cover in fourth, swung the final bend with three wider out and stayed on gamely for a placing. Withinmyheart settled second from the rear and one off the rails, straightened three-to-four deep and finished up well to inject value into the First-4. California Bounty had to work off a big weight to eventually lead on the rails passing the 800m, straightened a length on top and was stopping 150m out. London China Town settled midfield and one off the rails, peeled into the clear with two wider out approaching the 200m and ran on steadily without menacing. Punted late, Touch Go enjoyed the box-seat run, came one off upon straightening and didn't find much under the whip. Windicator Star was eased down after getting checked approaching the 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (162)-SWIFTLET HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1000Metres

LONDON CHINA TOWN began awkwardly and then soon after the start was hampered by CALIFORNIA BOUNTY which shifted in, resulting in LONDON CHINA TOWN losing ground.

BEAR HERO began awkwardly.

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

VITAL FLYER made the 600 Metre turn very awkwardly.

After initially attempting to improve between CHARITY SPIRIT and ENSEMBLE at the entrance to the Straight, STRAIGHT GOLD was directed in across the heels of ENSEMBLE near the 250 Metres to obtain clear running.

In the early stages of the Straight, LONDON CHINA TOWN was held up for clear running behind CHARITY SPIRIT and to the inside of BEAR HERO.

After passing the 200 Metres, WINDICATOR STAR was steadied when tightened for room inside TOUCH GO (C K Tong) which shifted in slightly when giving ground.

C K Tong was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care.

BEAR HERO and CHARITY SPIRIT raced wide and without cover throughout the race.

A veterinary inspection of WINDICATOR STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ENSEMBLE and STRAIGHT GOLD were sent for sampling.
