Recap by phillip woo

Bernard's Choice settled behind midfield and one off the rails, angled into the clear with two wider out at the 400m and ran down Columbus Line 50m out for the win. She does act well under Zac Purton. Columbus Line led from gate 10 until Captain America rolled to the lead one off at the 800m, reclaimed the front four deep at the 300m and grudgingly gave way late. He's vastly improved following a move to the hood and tongue-tie and remains one to follow. Favourite Ray Of Gold travelled one off the rails worse than midfield, straightened three-to-four deep and kept on well after switching underneath Columbus Line at the 100m. Flying Keeper travelled behind midfield along the fence, rounded the final bend four deep and was doing some nice work late to get up fourth best. King On Earth settled third from the rear and one off the rails from a wide gate, cornered five deep, peeled into the clear with three wider out and was doing some nice work thereafter. It was a nice effort in defeat with a return to Class Five. Solar Dragon came one off at the 400m and wasn't fully tested final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (436)-LOTUS BRIDGE HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

FLYING KEEPER began only fairly.

From wide barriers, PEACEFUL MISSION and KING ON EARTH were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

JUST GOOD, which was leaning on the outside of its stall, began awkwardly and then shifted out abruptly, losing ground.

BERNARD'S CHOICE was crowded for room at the start between GOOD SMILE which began awkwardly and ELEPHANT MAGIC which shifted out.

After being crossed by COLUMBUS LINE, POSITIVE ENERGY commenced to prove very difficult to settle near the 900 Metres and got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed close to the heels of COLUMBUS LINE.

Near the 350 Metres, RAY OF GOLD shifted out and brushed ELEPHANT MAGIC.

Near the 200 Metres, SOLAR DRAGON shifted to the inside of RAY OF GOLD to obtain clear running and in doing so bumped POSITIVE ENERGY.

Approaching the 100 Metres, RAY OF GOLD was shifted to the inside of the heels of COLUMBUS LINE after being disappointed for running outside that horse and inside BERNARD'S CHOICE.

When RAY OF GOLD shifted in, SOLAR DRAGON was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of that horse.

PEACEFUL MISSION lost its right front plate near the 100 Metres.

Over the concluding stages, CAPTAIN AMERICA and SOLAR DRAGON raced tight inside RAY OF GOLD.

Also over the concluding stages, JUST GOOD was held up for clear running and consequently was not able to be ridden out to the end of the race.

In the Straight, KING ON EARTH hung in under pressure.

GOOD SMILE travelled wide and without cover throughout the race and in the Straight gave ground.

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

RAY OF GOLD, BERNARD'S CHOICE and COLUMBUS LINE were sent for sampling.
