Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Solar Dragon settled behind midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with one wider out and finished up willingly to gun down leader Spectacular Award 60m out for a maiden win at his 10 th start. Spectacular Award was posted three deep early on in the lead, found the fence at the 1,200m, cornered a length on top and grudgingly gave way. Young Warrior enjoyed a box-seat run, came one off upon straightening and plugged on without menacing the Quinella pair in a rather disappointing performance with the drop in grade. Lotus Love settled second from the rear and one off the fence, peeled into the clear with one wider out upon straightening and was doing his best work late to fill a First-4 spot. Really The Best settled three back and one off the rails, bumped when cornering four deep and held his ground over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (286)-WONG LENG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Metres

MAGICAL BEAM was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetence).

Before being allowed to race again, MAGICAL BEAM will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

RED ADVENTURE began only fairly.

CHARMGOLD began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, DIAMOND START was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, LOTUS LOVE failed to muster speed.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, SOLAR DRAGON, which was proving difficult to settle, shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of REALLY THE BEST which was being steadied to obtain cover behind BORNFREE.

Passing the 400 Metres, REALLY THE BEST was shifted to the inside of BORNFREE, which was commencing to give ground, after initially attempting a run to the outside of that horse and inside CHARMGOLD where there was insufficient room.

In this incident, CHARMGOLD became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by REALLY THE BEST.

Throughout the race, CHARMGOLD travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that BORNFREE had bled from both nostrils.

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

SOLAR DRAGON and SPECTACULAR AWARD were sent for sampling.
