Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite, All Great Friends enjoyed a lovely run along the rails in fourth, rallied three deep upon straightening and finished nicely to take control 150m out for back-to-back wins despite a return to Class Three. Gentilis set a good tempo after crossing to lead from a wide gate, swung the final bend a length on top and found one too good in the end. Grimmy just held off the late surge of Kirov for a placing after moving to third near the inside at the 150m following a one off run fore of midfield. Kirov angled into the clear with three wider out at the 300m after travelling near the back and darted late to make it interesting. Peace On Earth settled fourth from the rear from a tricky draw, cornered five deep and made some ground late. Geronimo Meadow made some ground near the inside without ever looking a threat following a rail's run in midfield. Lovely Boy gradually gave way following prominent run with cover. All Win Boy was always covering ground behind midfield and was beaten a long way out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (157)-WONG CHUK HANG HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

KERKENI began awkwardly and then shortly after the start was bumped by GERONIMO MEADOW.

YOUNG RANGER was crowded for room at the start between ALL WIN BOY and LOVELY BOY, both of which shifted ground.

From a wide barrier, KIROV was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 200 Metres, ALL WIN BOY became unbalanced after being bumped by KERKENI which got its head on the side and shifted out marginally.

Close to the finishing line, APOLLO CAVALIER, which was giving ground, was steadied away from the heels of PEACE ON EARTH which shifted out.

For the majority of the race, ALL WIN BOY travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, M Demuro stated that, from the wide barrier, he had been asked to shift LONDON WALK across behind runners in the early stages as the horse had performed well in the past when ridden by him from towards the rear of the field.

He said he had hoped to make his run in between horses in the Straight if possible as this had been the scenario when he had ridden the horse to success previously.

He said in the early and middle stages LONDON WALK got out of its ground due to the good tempo of the race and he was obliged to improve around YOUNG RANGER along the Back Straight in order to take closer order to the body of the field.

He said making the turn at the 1000 Metres he noted that LONDON WALK lost its left hind plate.

He said making the turn after the 600 Metres he did not believe that it was going to be available to take inside runs as there were a number of horses in advance of LONDON WALK and therefore he elected to shift LONDON WALK to the outside of KIROV after the 500 Metres.

He added in the early part of the Straight he balanced up LONDON WALK and shifted it to the outside of ALL WIN BOY, however, approaching the 200 Metres was hampered and taken wider due to a shift out from his inside.

He said he commenced to ride LONDON WALK out with the whip in the left hand, however, near the 100 Metres when being fully tested LONDON WALK shifted in under pressure, therefore he elected to put the whip away and continued to ride it out to the end of the race hands and heels.

M Demuro was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must ensure that he ride his mounts out with sufficient vigour so as to leave no room for query.

A veterinary inspection of LOVELY BOY and APOLLO CAVALIER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ALL GREAT FRIENDS and GENTILIS were sent for sampling.
