Recap by phillip woo

Goldweaver was gifted an uncontested lead, shifted in under pressure after cornering four deep, was briefly headed by Floral Man 300m out and fought back in a thriller to snatch victory on the wire as the late-fancied favourite. Floral Man had every chance after a box-seat run and lost out in a ding-dong battle. It was a ways back to early favourite Triumphant Dragon, who kept on reasonably well after a handy run without cover to grab third from the fast-finishing Optimization Star. The latter settled third from the rear and was finishing full of run with two wider out in the drive. He's back on track and remains a contender when next stepping out over this trip. Triumphant Way made a mild bid five deep in the drive after travelling worse than midfield and one off the rails. Island Spring came up flat over the final 200m after a deep run in midfield with cover. My Cup Overflows was held up briefly upon straightening after travelling behind midfield along the rails and came up one-paced over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (130)-CUCKOO HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Metres

JOYFUL MISSION was slow to begin.

FOREST COLOURS was crowded for room on jumping between VIVA GUY and ISLAND SPRING (C Reith) which shifted in.

C Reith was advised that in similar circumstances he would be expected to make more of an effort to prevent his mount from shifting ground than he did on this occasion.

TAI PO FORTUNE was crowded for room on jumping between SOLAR DRAGON and GOLDWEAVER, both of which shifted ground.

From the outside barrier, IT CAN ONLY BE YOU was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

For some distance in the early stages, SOLAR DRAGON repeatedly got its head in the air when proving very difficult to settle.

After the 700 Metres and particularly rounding the Home Turn, GOLDWEAVER got its head on the side and lay out.

Rounding the Home Turn, OPTIMIZATION STAR was awkwardly placed close to the heels of IT CAN ONLY BE YOU.

Then at the entrance to the Straight, OPTIMIZATION STAR was shifted to the inside of that horse which moved out.

For some distance approaching and passing the 350 Metres, OPTIMIZATION STAR was held up and steadied away from the heels of IT CAN ONLY BE YOU which shifted back in.

OPTIMIZATION STAR was then directed to the outside of IT CAN ONLY BE YOU into clear running passing the 300 Metres.

Throughout the race, TRIUMPHANT DRAGON travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of MY CUP OVERFLOWS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GOLDWEAVER and FLORAL MAN were sent for sampling.
