Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, O'Halo pinged to the front from gate 10, cornered near two lengths on top and kept on gamely for the win, despite a switch from the dirt to turf. Cosmo One was able to find a spot one off behind midfield from a wide gate, straightened three deep, pulled out for clear running at the 300m and finished up well to snatch second from Classic Figure on the line. Classic Figure travelled a handy fifth and one off the rails, rounded the final bend five deep, worked to second 100m out and was shaded late for the Quinella spot. Magical Beam made his run third from the rear along the rails, cornered three-to-four deep, angled out for a clear run at the 200m and was hitting the line well to make it close for a placing. Spectacular Award was covering ground worse than midfield from the widest gate, swung the final bend with three wider out and kept up a steadily gallop late to finish just out of the placings. He'll be hard to beat from a proper alley next time out. Man And Ming was still last at the 800m, pushed widest out upon straightening and made some ground late without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (333)-ELECTRONIC UNICORN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

NATURAL CHAMPION began awkwardly.

YOUNG WARRIOR lost ground soon after the start after becoming unbalanced when buffeted for room for some distance between ELEPHANT MAGIC and SERENDIPITY, both of which shifted ground marginally.

Approaching the 700 Metres, NATURAL CHAMPION commenced to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when being checked away from the heels of SPECTACULAR AWARD which travelled wide and without cover throughout the race.

Passing the 500 Metres, SPECTACULAR AWARD and BERNARD'S CHOICE bumped.

COSMO ONE was shifted out across the heels of ELEPHANT MAGIC passing the 300 Metres to obtain clear running and in doing so bumped CLASSIC FIGURE, causing that horse to become unbalanced.

After being awkwardly placed close to the heels of CLASSIC FIGURE passing the 250 Metres, YOUNG WARRIOR, for some distance after the 200 Metres, was steadied when held up for clear running after being disappointed for running between CLASSIC FIGURE and SPECTACULAR AWARD.

YOUNG WARRIOR was then unable to obtain clear running for the remainder of the race and consequently was not able to be properly tested.

For the majority of the race, BERNARD'S CHOICE travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

After the race, B Prebble (ELEPHANT MAGIC) expressed concern over the horse's action.

A veterinary inspection of ELEPHANT MAGIC immediately following the race did not show any significant findings other than an abrasion to the back of the left hind leg.

A veterinary inspection of BERNARD'S CHOICE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

YOUNG WARRIOR, O'HALO and COSMO ONE were sent for sampling.
