Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Spicy Shrimp vied for the lead underneath Highland Dragon early on, settled box-seat at the 600m, had near two lengths to make up upon straightening and finished well one off the rails to get up in the final bob for back-to-back wins. Highland Dragon pinged straight to the front from gate seven, cornered clearly on top and just failed to hang on. Gracytom settled three back along the rails, moved to third two off at the 300m and ran on steadily to finish just behind the Quinella pair. Bolero bided his time third from the tail along the rails after a tardy break, shifted four deep at the 200m and stayed on reasonably well thereafter. China Good settled behind midfield along the paint, swung the final bend with two wider out and was getting going late without menacing. Young Supreme recovered to settle fifth and one off the rails after a sluggish break, rallied five deep upon straightening and only held his ground in the dash. Mighty Gains was posted deep near the speed without cover from a wide alley, straightened four deep and was giving ground over the final 200m. Mega settled at the tail from a wide gate, straightened furthest out and never fired.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (445)-VICTORY HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Metres

BOLERO was slow to begin.

YOUNG SUPREME began awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, MEGA raced tight between COSMO ONE and MIGHTY GAINS which shifted out.

After this, MEGA, from a wide barrier, was taken across behind runners.

Approaching the 800 Metres, HAPPY GOAL shifted in and bumped CHINA GOOD which became unbalanced.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, both HAPPY GOAL and MEGA hung out.

Near the 550 Metres, YOUNG SUPREME and COSMO ONE raced tight.

Approaching the 500 Metres, YOUNG SUPREME was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MIGHTY GAINS.

Near the 150 Metres, COSMO ONE was momentarily awkwardly placed between YOUNG SUPREME and CHINA GOOD, both of which shifted ground marginally.

Near the 100 Metres, COSMO ONE was shifted out away from the heels of YOUNG SUPREME.

A veterinary inspection of MEGA immediately following the race revealed the horse to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.

SPICY SHRIMP and HIGHLAND DRAGON were sent for sampling.
