Recap by phillip woo

Fancied late in betting, Berlinski enjoyed a lovely run along the rails in fifth, pulled out four deep at the 200m and quickened to take control 20m out for back-to-back wins. Imperial Champion enjoyed the box-seat run, advanced to the front one off at the 150m and kept on gamely with a return to racing after a nose bleed in February. Favourite Key Witness never got in with cover three deep behind midfield, swung the final bend six deep and came up flat over the final 50m after looming a winning chance 150m out. Arpinati travelled behind midfield along the rails, straightened four deep and finished up nicely in an encouraging debut performance. He's one to follow next season. Our Folks had a nice run in midfield and one off the rails, cornered underneath Key Witness and ran on steadily without menacing. Bobo Dragon brushed with a tiring Ensemble at the 350m and was one-paced over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eleven: (694)-CHOPARD HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Metres

ARPINATI and ROCKET FLY were slow to begin.

ENSEMBLE began awkwardly.

GORGEOUS DEBUT blundered on jumping.

From the outside barriers, GREAT SPIRIT and WINDICATOR STAR were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the first turn near the 900 Metres, COUR VALANT got its head up when proving very difficult to settle and awkwardly placed close to the heels of OUR FOLKS.

After the 900 Metres, KEY WITNESS was left racing wide and without cover.

For some distance after the 800 Metres, ROCKET FLY was steadied away from the heels of KEY WITNESS.

Near the 600 Metres, LET ME HANDLE IT lost ground when momentarily crowded for room between GREAT SPIRIT and ROCKET FLY which shifted in when proving difficult to settle and awkwardly placed close to the heels of ROCKET FLY.

Passing the 400 Metres, OUR FOLKS was directed out away from the heels of BOBO DRAGON which, after being brushed by ENSEMBLE, then got its head on the side and shifted out away from that horse.

Approaching the 200 Metres, GREAT SPIRIT was checked away from the heels of ENSEMBLE which was giving ground.

Passing the 100 Metres, KEY WITNESS shifted out abruptly, resulting in its rider, D Whyte, having to stop riding and straighten his mount.

For the majority of the race, ETON BLITZ travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, Apprentice C Y Lui (GREAT SPIRIT) reported that his saddle shifted in the middle stages.

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

KEY WITNESS, BERLINSKI and IMPERIAL CHAMPION were sent for sampling.
