Recap by phillip woo

Pleasure Gains was nicely rated three back along the rails, shuffled back to have only two beaten rounding the final bend, shifted out for clear running three deep approaching the 200m and quickened nicely to get up in the final few metres for the win as the favourite. Bullish Boy made his run outside the leader following a sluggish break by his standards, rolled to the lead at the 750m, cornered near two lengths on top and went down fighting. Albiceleste was patiently ridden at the rear and one off the rails, barged his way into the clear with two wider out at the 250m and finished up willingly to be a clear third. Punted late, Chater Dream drove to the lead at the 1,250m, took the sit in third after getting headed, straightened near the inside and plugged on one-paced over the last 100m. Sichuan Charm was handy along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening, moved to third at the 200m and was struggling 100m out with a step up in distance. Fun Rider made his run second from the rear along the rails, rounded the final bend four deep and made some ground late without menacing. Perfect Cheers was plugging on one-paced over the final 150m following a prominent run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (274)-BLUE POOL HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650Metres

VICTORY MASTER, which was fractious in the barriers, lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and began awkwardly, resulting in the horse losing ground.

PLEASURE GAINS shifted out at the start and bumped RACING HERO.

From wide barriers, NOBLE DELUXE, FUN RIDER and ALBICELESTE were taken across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, PLEASURE GAINS and RACING HERO raced very tight as PLEASURE GAINS attempted to remain racing away from the fence.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, BEAUTY LEAD was steadied away from the heels of CHATER DREAM (K Teetan) which shifted in when not quite clear.

K Teetan was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Passing the 1000 Metres, RACING HERO, which was racing keenly, became awkwardly placed close to the heels of PERFECT CHEERS.

Near the 900 Metres, NOBLE DELUXE was bumped and taken wider by VICTORY MASTER which, when racing keenly, shifted out away from the heels of RACING HERO.

BEAUTY LEAD travelled wide and without cover until passing the 600 Metres.

At the 400 Metres, PLEASURE GAINS was checked away from the heels of SICHUAN CHARM.

SICHUAN CHARM and RACING HERO were held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Approaching the 200 Metres, VICTORY MASTER was shifted out after racing tight outside ALBICELESTE which was improving into tight running between VICTORY MASTER and JUN GONG which shifted out when commencing to give ground.

PLEASURE GAINS was unable to obtain clear running until near the 200 Metres.

Passing the 150 Metres, JUN GONG, which was giving ground, was checked when crowded for room between PERFECT CHEERS which shifted out and ALBICELESTE (U Rispoli) which shifted in under pressure.

U Rispoli was severely reprimanded and advised that whilst there was a contributing shift out from PERFECT CHEERS, nonetheless he must in future stop riding and straighten his mounts when they shift ground.

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

PLEASURE GAINS and BULLISH BOY were sent for sampling.
