Recap by phillip woo

Firming late Aerovelocity rushed forward from a wide gate to lead before taking the sit in second and one off at the 900m, reclaimed the front two deep at the 350m, increased his margin to near two lengths at the 250m and just held off the late-surge of the favourite Silly Buddies for back-to-back wins. Silly Buddies was awaiting a run early straight following a prominent run along the rails, got the run three deep at the 350m and was cutting back the margin late to make it very close while coming home a clear second. He shows plenty of promise and will head higher. Hearts Keeper was effectively one-out, one-back in the run, straightened five deep and ran on nicely to figure in the placings at the 200m with a tonne of money late. G-One Leader travelled behind midfield and one off the rails, was in a bit of traffic five deep upon straightening, shifted under Mazandaran at the 350m and ran on well to overhaul Moneymaker 30m out to fill the First-4. He won't be far off a win.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (221)-LONDON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

On arrival at the Start, it was noted EXCITABLE BOY had a small cut to the left hind fetlock.

EXCITABLE BOY was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

MASQUERADER, which was leaning on the outside of its stall, began awkwardly, shifted out at the start and in doing so made contact with the hindquarters of EXCITABLE BOY which became unbalanced.

After this, MASQUERADER was taken across behind runners.

After the 1000 Metres, PSYCHOLOGIST was crowded for room between ULTIMATE WINNERS and G-ONE LEADER which shifted out when proving difficult to settle.

After the 800 Metres, MR GINGER was carried into a three wide position without cover by AEROVELOCITY which shifted away from the rail from behind JOYFUL THE GREAT.

Both JOYFUL THE GREAT and MR GINGER lay out rounding the Home Turn.

TALLEY CLOSE had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Passing the 400 Metres, SILLY BUDDIES was awkwardly placed close to the heels of AEROVELOCITY.

Near the 300 Metres, EXCITABLE BOY was hampered by MAZANDARAN (U Rispoli) which shifted out from behind HEARTS KEEPER to obtain clear running.

U Rispoli was reprimanded.

Near the 50 Metres, SILLY BUDDIES and AEROVELOCITY raced tight.

Over the concluding stages, MAZANDARAN and PSYCHOLOGIST raced tight.

For the majority of the race, ULTIMATE WINNERS travelled wide and without cover.

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

AEROVELOCITY and SILLY BUDDIES were sent for sampling.
