Recap by phillip woo

Money was spot on for Natural Champion, who slotted third and one off without cover from an outside gate, moved closer to sit outside the leader at the 800m, hit the front 400m out and kept on gamely for the win and remain unbeaten in two starts for training Benno Yung, despite the return to the turf here. Namjong Turbo had to work a shade to eventually clear Infinite Courage for the lead along the rails at the 1,500m, lost the lead soon after straight and kept plugging away to hold second. Early favourite Mobile King made his run three back along the rails, straightened three-to-four deep and got going final 150m to get up 50m out for a placing. Burgundy Mac settled behind midfield along the rails after a sluggish break, straightened one off and ran on well between horses to get up in the final strides for a First-4 spot. Optimization Star straightened three deep and came up flat over the final 150m with every chance.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (494)-FREESIA HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

Jockey A Suborics (HUMONGUS) was reprimanded for arriving late into the Parade Ring for this race.

BURGUNDY MAC began only fairly.

Shortly after the start, HUMONGUS was bumped by OPTIMIZATION STAR which shifted out.

From the outside barrier, ABLE DRAGON was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

NAMJONG TURBO lost its left front plate at the 1400 Metres.

At the 900 Metres, PUBLIC FIGURE got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of NATURAL CHAMPION.

Approaching the 800 Metres, INFINITE COURAGE was steadied away from the heels of NAMJONG TURBO when unable to improve to the outside of that horse and inside NATURAL CHAMPION.

Approaching the 500 Metres, BAMBOO DANCE became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by STREET CAT which improved into tight running between BAMBOO DANCE and ABLE DRAGON.

Near the 150 Metres, STREET CAT was steadied when crowded for room between SMART GUY and GOLDMEN Y Y which shifted in marginally.

After improving into tight running between PUBLIC FIGURE and INFINITE COURAGE approaching the 100 Metres, BURGUNDY MAC then raced in restricted room between those horses over the concluding stages.

Over the concluding stages, INFINITE COURAGE raced tight between BURGUNDY MAC and OPTIMIZATION STAR and close to the finishing line bumped with OPTIMIZATION STAR.

A veterinary inspection of STREET CAT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

NATURAL CHAMPION and NAMJONG TURBO were sent for sampling.
