Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Kim Glory handed up the lead soon after the break, reclaimed the front 800m out, cornered a length on top and kept plugging away to remain unbeaten in two starts this season after removing the blinkers. Happy Homing had all before him with three wider out when straightening after going back from a wide gate and ran down Massive for second. Massive straightened five deep after travelling one-out, one-back and kept on reasonably well. Sir John gave up the front at the 800m, was under pressure round the final bend three deep and lost a placing late. No Ties settled behind midfield along the fence, angled five deep at the 250m and dived late to grab the luckless Positive Energy for a minor payout. Positive Energy found a nice spot in fifth and one off the rails from the widest gate, loomed a winning chance until copping a check by the eventual winner 70m out. Captain America was travelling along the fence in fourth when balked by Positive Energy inside the 100m. Wine Lovers made some ground from the back. PJ Hall enjoyed a lovely run along the rails in midfield and held his ground.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (122)-BEECH HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

WINE LOVERS was crowded for room on jumping between SIR JOHN and KIM GLORY which shifted in.

KING OF SMARTS began awkwardly and shortly after the start shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of CAPTAIN AMERICA, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

From wide barriers, SEA SMOKE and HAPPY HOMING were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

NO TIES was also shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

At the 900 Metres, KING OF SMARTS shifted in abruptly towards the heels of P J HALL, resulting in KING OF SMARTS being checked.

NO TIES, which was following, was checked in consequence after also being crowded for room inside SKY FIRE which shifted in abruptly.

No action was taken.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, P J HALL lost ground after becoming unbalanced when reluctant to maintain its position inside POSITIVE ENERGY.

At the 400 Metres, HAPPY HOMING was held up when racing in restricted room between WINE LOVERS and SKY FIRE which shifted in marginally when giving ground.

Near the 150 Metres, KIM GLORY shifted out marginally under pressure.

POSITIVE ENERGY, which was following KIM GLORY, was ridden to improve inside KIM GLORY.

Then passing the 100 Metres, CAPTAIN AMERICA was checked when crowded for room inside POSITIVE ENERGY which was also checked when disappointed for running inside KIM GLORY (T H So) which shifted in.

P J HALL, which was following, was inconvenienced.

As the Stewards were satisfied that POSITIVE ENERGY had not properly established running to the inside of KIM GLORY at the time that that horse shifted back in, no further action was taken other than to advise T H So to ensure that he makes every endeavour to keep his mounts on a straight course.

Over the concluding stages, POSITIVE ENERGY and SIR JOHN raced tight.

KIM GLORY and HAPPY HOMING were sent for sampling.
