Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite Regency Champion set a genuine pace on the lead, cornered two lengths on top and kept up a strong gallop to register back-to-back wins. Choice Treasure settled behind midfield and on the rails, rallied four deep upon straightening and finished nicely off a big weight to grab London Walk in the shadows of the post for second. London Walk enjoyed the box-seat run, worked to second rounding the final bend and was nipped on the line for a Quinella spot. Happy Champion was ridden quietly second from the rear from an outside gate, swung the final bend widest out and ran on willingly to collar Highest Acclaim for fourth. He has been racing well in defeat this term and won't be far off a winning run. Plunged late, Highest Acclaim settled one-out, one-back in the run, peeled six deep soon after straightening and came up one-paced over the final 150m with every chance. General Iron made his run three back along the rails, worked to fourth at the 200m and only held his ground over the final 100m in a better second-up effort. Early favourite St Yazin made his run third from the rear along the inside following a slow break from a wide gate, pushed five deep upon straightening and only kept on past beaten gallopers. He's on his mark following a first-up win this term. Fancied late, Mi Savvy travelled fourth from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend with three wider out and came up flat when popped the question.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (180)-THE WAYFOONG CENTENARY BOWL (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

GENERAL IRON, which was leaning on the outside of its stall as the start was effected, was crowded for room shortly after the start between REGENCY CHAMPION and HIGHEST ACCLAIM which shifted in.

KICK SERVE shifted out shortly after the start and bumped GLAMOROUS RYDER which in turn was taken out onto SPITFIRE which became unbalanced.

From wide barriers, CHOICE TREASURE, ST YAZIN and HAPPY CHAMPION were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start and then shortly afterwards ST YAZIN was checked away from the heels of CHOICE TREASURE which got its head up and shifted out abruptly.

Approaching the 900 Metres, HIGHEST ACCLAIM was steadied away from the heels of TOMODACHI (C Y Ho) which shifted in when not properly clear.

C Y Ho was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

For some distance after this, HIGHEST ACCLAIM travelled keenly and shifted ground when awkwardly placed close to the heels of TOMODACHI.

For the majority of the race, KICK SERVE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of MI SAVVY, O Doleuze stated that after being able to win first up this season, MI SAVVY was somewhat disappointing at its last start albeit that it travelled wide and without cover throughout the race.

He said he was of the opinion that at its last run the horse was not concentrating and MI SAVVY raced in a similar manner tonight.

He said he had to ride his mount along for some distance passing the 900 Metres in order to have it stay in touch, however, MI SAVVY was reluctant to stretch out.

He added in the Straight MI SAVVY was disappointing in that, despite being ridden out, the horse did not quicken at any stage.

He said he was of the belief that MI SAVVY may benefit from having the blinkers reapplied which he suggested that the connections consider in its future starts.

He also said that having in mind MI SAVVY was able to win at its first run back from a break this season, the horse may race better when kept fresh.

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

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

REGENCY CHAMPION and CHOICE TREASURE were sent for sampling.
