Recap by phillip woo

Firming late, Exciting Dream was patiently ridden at the tail of the field and two off the rails from a wide gate, swung the final bend furthest out and let down willingly off a light weight to get up 50m from the line for a victory in his initial run at the Valley, despite a rise in grade. Plunged late, Metallic Star settled midfield and one off the rails, rushed to the front four deep at the 100m and was no match for the winner. Favourite Dining World settled fourth from the rear and two off the rails with cover, swung the final bend with one wider out and ran on reasonably well to grab third in his initial run at the city venue. He's crying out for 1,400m and eventually a mile. Ensemble was hard ridden to eventually clear Charity Spirit for the lead at the 800m from the widest gate, came to the final bend just over a length on top and grudgingly gave way late with the step up to 1,200m. Shahjee settled fourth and one off the rails, straightened five deep and was wayward while holding his ground over the final 150m. He needs ratings relief. New Deerfield travelled outside Metallic Star in the run with cover, rounded the final bend with two wider out and ran on steadily without menacing. Tai Sing Yeh bided his time third from the rear following a sluggish break, cornered five deep and got pass beaten rivals.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (256)-WATERLOO HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Metres

TAI SING YEH began awkwardly and lost ground.

From a wide barrier, EXCITING DREAM was taken across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, CHARITY SPIRIT proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

After the 900 Metres, NEW DEERFIELD proved very difficult to settle when over-racing.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, CHARITY SPIRIT and SHAHJEE raced tight.

Passing the 300 Metres, CHARITY SPIRIT was bumped by NEW GLORY when disappointed for running between that horse and ENSEMBLE.

Approaching the 100 Metres, NEW DEERFIELD was steadied when crowded for room between DINING WORLD and SHAHJEE, both of which shifted ground.

Passing the 50 Metres, TAI SING YEH was shifted out away from the heels of SHAHJEE which shifted in when racing to the inside of DINING WORLD which also shifted in under pressure.

For the majority of the race, FUN TAPESTRY travelled wide and without cover.

DINING WORLD, EXCITING DREAM and METALLIC STAR were sent for sampling.
