Recap by phillip woo

Yee Cheong Star shot straight to the front from a wide gate, straightened nearly two lengths on top and kept up a strong gallop to open his win account at his fourth start. Flying Elite settled one-out, one-back, straightened five deep and ran on steadily to wear down Trump close to the wire for second. Trump travelled sweetly in midfield and on the rails, swung the final bend three deep, worked to second 100m out and was nipped in a bob of heads for the Quinella spot. Uwillbeglorious settled behind midfield and one off the rails, took off three deep at the 600m, straightened with two wider out and only held his ground over the final 150m. Ride With The Wind settled second from the rear and along the rails, straightened with three wider out, ducked to a position two off the rails at the 200m and kept on nicely to pick up a pay cheque in an improved performance. He may have found a bottom. Emperor Claudius enjoyed the box-seat run, came one off upon straightening and only kept on evenly over the final 150m. Heco Rider settled behind midfield and on the rails, stuck to the fence upon straightening and didn't have much to offer. He needs a return to Class Four. Invictus tracked the leader one off the rails, straightened four deep and was stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (163)-TROPICBIRD HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

On jumping, HECO RIDER was crowded for room between INVICTUS and ELEGANCE KLAMMER, both of which shifted ground.

As a consequence of contact on its hindquarters, ELEGANCE KLAMMER then lay in despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in HECO RIDER being further crowded, striking the heels of INVICTUS and blundering.

From wide barriers, STRATHTAY, GREAT RENOWN and RIDE WITH THE WIND were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, ELEGANCE KLAMMER lost its both hind plates.

Passing the 700 Metres, UWILLBEGLORIOUS was shifted out to improve and raced three wide and without cover thereafter.

Passing the 500 Metres, RIDE WITH THE WIND made contact with the hindquarters of STRATHTAY which became unbalanced.

Rounding the Home Turn, FLYING ELITE raced tight between UWILLBEGLORIOUS and INVICTUS.

In this incident, FLYING ELITE made contact with the hindquarters of UWILLBEGLORIOUS, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

After being shifted in away from the heels of MEGA CHAMPION after passing the 300 Metres, RIDE WITH THE WIND then had some difficulty obtaining clear running over the final 100 Metres.

Close to the finishing line, RIDE WITH THE WIND was then awkwardly placed near the heels of FLYING ELITE and as a consequence could not be ridden out fully to the line.

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

YEE CHEONG STAR and FLYING ELITE were sent for sampling.
