Recap by phillip woo

Robust Momentum settled second from the rear and two off the rails from a wide gate, peeled very wide to settle near the outside rails at the 400m and picked them up nicely to take control 100m out for a maiden win with a step up in distance and key move to a senior rider. Fiery Patrol settled fifth and one off the rails behind the slow sections of eventual leader All My Benefit, cornered four deep and wore down Win It at the 50m for second. Win It handed up to punch the breeze outside Good Times Roll in third, assumed the front 300m out and grudgingly gave way late off a big weight in an improved effort with the drop in grade. Lightly-framed sort may require a claimer's allowance. Optimization Star bided his time third from the rear and one off the rails, angled into the clear with two wider out upon straightening and was doing his best work late to overhaul Splendid Guy in the final few metres. Plunged late, Splendid Guy recovered from a tardy break from an outside alley to settle midfield along the rails at the 1,150m, moved to fourth at the 150m and was one-paced soon after.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (381)-BANYAN BRIDGE HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1600Metres

Whilst in the saddling stalls, OPTIMIZATION STAR had its left hind plate refitted.

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

WIN IT began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, SPLENDID GUY, ROBUST MOMENTUM and STREET CAT were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the 900 Metres, NO TIES was checked when crowded for room inside RED ADVENTURE which, when over-racing, was itself checked when crowded onto SPLENDID GUY by FIERY PATROL (N Callan) which initially got its head on the side and lay in across the heels of WIN IT before a short time later being taken in marginally by LOTUS LOVE (T H So) which shifted in when not properly clear.

When NO TIES was checked, it shifted out, resulting in OPTIMIZATION STAR being checked when taken across the heels of PRINCE OF SUNSHINE.

STREET CAT, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

The Stewards were of the opinion that there were a number of circumstances which contributed to this incident and that no one rider was careless to the degree where it was appropriate to issue charges under the Rules.

However, both N Callan and T H So were advised that they must make every endeavour to ensure their fellow riders have sufficient racing room in similar circumstances.

After the 800 Metres, CITY DELIGHT was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 750 Metres, NO TIES was checked away from the heels of RED ADVENTURE.

Throughout the race, LOTUS LOVE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of GOOD TIMES ROLL, W C Marwing stated that, in his opinion, the performance could be attributed to the fact that it was not able to obtain cover in the early stages and over-raced due to the moderate tempo.

He said when the horse was successful at its most recent start, it was able to obtain cover in a race which was run at a quicker tempo than that of today's race.

A veterinary inspection of GOOD TIMES ROLL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
