Recap by phillip woo

Thumped late in betting to jump favourite, Hayhay worked to the lead at the 1,000m from a wide gate, cornered four deep a length on top and kept up a strong gallop to open his win account at race number 10. Early favourite Gentilis settled fourth and one off the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and ran down Cheers Victories close to home for second. Cheers Victories enjoyed a box-seat run from a good gate, stayed near the inside upon straightening and kept on steadily for a placing. He had no excuses. Fresh Air travelled third from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend with one wider out and was getting going late to light the frame. Peri Peri Saffron traveled behind midfield and one off the rails, straightened four deep, went back to the inside at the 150m and ran on evenly thereafter. Red Courage was yielding ground over the final 150m after prompting the pace from a wide alley. My Cup Overflows made his run second from the rear and was making some ground late down the far outside. Nightlign had no cover fore of midfield from a wide gate and never a factor in the straight run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (622)-GARONNE HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

SWEET BEAN began only fairly and was shifted across behind runners shortly after the start.

When being steadied passing the 1100 Metres, GENTILIS got its head up on a number of occasions and initially proved difficult to settle.

Near the 850 Metres, GENTILIS, which was continuing to prove difficult to settle, was momentarily steadied away from the heels of RED COURAGE which shifted in.

In the Straight, ELECTRONIC GOSPEL hung in and approaching the 250 Metres was checked away from the heels of NIGHTLIGN.

After this, ELECTRONIC GOSPEL continued to hang in under pressure.

When questioned, T H So (NIGHTLIGN) stated that he had been asked to obtain a position behind the leaders if possible.

He said in the early stages he intended to position NIGHTLIGN behind GENTILIS, however, after the 1100 Metres that horse was steadied by its rider and because of this he was not able to shift NIGHTLIGN in behind GENTILIS before PERI PERI SAFFRON was able to improve its position to his inside.

He added that this resulted in NIGHTLIGN being left racing three wide and without cover after the 900 Metres.

Mr A Lee, the trainer of NIGHTLIGN, stated that the horse had been racing well of late when ridden behind the speed and he was concerned that if NIGHTLIGN had to be ridden along from barrier 10 to obtain the lead, it would not be able to finish off the race.

He said as he anticipated there were a number of runners in the race which were able to take up forward positions, he felt that it was in the best interests of NIGHTLIGN to obtain a position behind the speed which was in keeping with its recent races.

He added that it would not be his intention in the future for NIGHTLIGN to be ridden along to obtain the lead and that the horse would only lead without having to be made use of.

HAYHAY and GENTILIS were sent for sampling.
