Recap by phillip woo

Best-backed late in betting, Gracytom enjoyed the gun run, bumped with Spicy Shrimp while trying to establish a position one off upon straightening and finished up nicely to collar favourite Highland Dragon in the final bob of heads for the win. Highland Dragon went straight to the front from gate one, cornered just over a length on top and went down fighting as a clear-cut runner-up. Diamond Angel settled midfield along the rails, rallied four deep upon straightening and wore down Novel Start close to home for a placing. Novel Start travelled without cover up with the leaders, swung the final bend five deep and kept on reasonably well following the hard run. Leeli's Star settled fifth and one off the rails, swung the final bend with one wider out and kept on steadily without menacing. Spicy Shrimp stalked the leader, straightened near three deep and was yielding ground 150m out. Sledge Hammer didn't handle the bends while settled midfield and three deep and was never a factor in the straight drive.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (519)-CHIU LUNG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Metres

SUNSHINE BOY was hampered at the start when crowded for room between LEELI'S STAR and SLEDGE HAMMER which, after beginning awkwardly, was taken out by DIAMOND ANGEL.

In this incident, SLEDGE HAMMER became unbalanced.

From the outside barriers, WINE LOVERS and YOUNG HAPPY were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 800 Metres, LEELI'S STAR got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover.

After the 800 Metres, LEELI'S STAR got its head on the side and lay out and then making the turn after the 600 Metres hung out.

Approaching the 250 Metres, GRACYTOM and SPICY SHRIMP made contact for some distance as GRACYTOM shifted out from behind HIGHLAND DRAGON into clear running.

Throughout the race, NOVEL START travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of SPICY SHRIMP immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GRACYTOM and HIGHLAND DRAGON were sent for sampling.
