Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Golden Osmanthus settled three back along the rails, came three deep upon straightening and ran on well to take control 100m out for a maiden win at his 18 th start, despite resuming from colic surgery, in another fine training feat from rookie trainer Chris So. Lotus Love settled midfield and three deep with cover, rounded the final bend with one wider out and kept coming to secure second 50m out. Triumphant Dragon travelled one-out, one-back, eased off heels for clear running five deep at the 150m and stayed on reasonably well for a placing. Record Again made his run one off with cover in midfield, turned the final bend with three wider out, quickened to briefly find the front at the 150m and peaked on his run 100m out. Africa Light saved ground behind midfield, eased out for clear running four deep upon straightening, copped a bump 320m out and ran on all right final 100m. P J Hall found the front at the 350m after vying for the lead with Gorgeous Life and was stopping when headed 100m out. La Cote De Bleu made some ground late down the outside.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (454)-KRETA AYER HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Metres

TAKE THE RAP began awkwardly and shortly after the start blundered.

Shortly after the start, LOTUS LOVE and RECORD AGAIN bumped.

From a wide barrier, GOOD TIMES ROLL was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

When being taken across behind runners in the early stages, LA COTE DE BLEU made contact with ENJOY THE FUN.

A short distance later, LA COTE DE BLEU became unbalanced after being bumped by ENJOY THE FUN which shifted out.

Also in the early stages, TAKE THE RAP proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

TRIUMPHANT DRAGON got its head on the side and lay out making the Home Turn.

Passing the 350 Metres, TRIUMPHANT DRAGON was hampered when awkwardly placed inside the heels of CITY DELIGHT which shifted in.

AFRICA LIGHT was inconvenienced in consequence.

GOLDEN OSMANTHUS was momentarily held up for clear running approaching the 300 Metres and near the 250 Metres was steadied when briefly crowded for room between TAKE THE RAP and P J HALL which shifted out.

Near the 150 Metres, CITY DELIGHT was bumped by TRIUMPHANT DRAGON which got its head on the side and shifted out.

Throughout the race, CITY DELIGHT travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, N Callan reported that GORGEOUS LIFE travelled too keenly in the early stages when racing inside P J HALL.

He said as the horse did not settle satisfactorily, GORGEOUS LIFE was then not able to travel comfortably and weakened in the Straight.

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

A veterinary inspection of GOOD TIMES ROLL immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being allowed to race again, GOOD TIMES ROLL will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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

GOLDEN OSMANTHUS and LOTUS LOVE were sent for sampling.
