Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Domineer was gifted an uncontested lead following the tardy break of Happy Yeah Yeah and coasted home well in hand to notch a third win from five starts over this Valley trip. Best Eleven just held off the late-fancied Smart Man by a whisker following a box-seat run for second. Smart Man settled three back and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with three wider out and finished up reasonably well. Great Spirit made his run second from the rear from a wide gate, made his move 600m out and kept up a good gallop widest out. Ensemble settled one off in second from a wide gate, cornered four deep and only held his ground over the final 150m. Jazzy Feeling settled behind midfield along the rails after jumping away slow, stayed near the inside upon straightening and plugged on without menacing. Penglai Xianzi kept on evenly under the whip following a midfield run. Happy Yeah Yeah was never a factor out back after jumping tardily. My Name Is Bond settled one off in midfield, swung the final bend with one wider out and lost every chance when laying in under pressure.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (193)-THE ST ANDREW'S CHALLENGE QUAICH (HANDICAP) - Class 2 - 1200Metres

JAZZY FEELING was slow to begin.

HAPPY YEAH YEAH began only fairly and shortly after the start was severely checked when badly crowded for room between SILLY BUDDIES which on jumping was bumped on the hindquarters by RAINBOW FIGHTER which shifted out and GREAT SPIRIT which was taken in by ENSEMBLE which shifted in after beginning awkwardly.

As a result of this crowding, HAPPY YEAH YEAH raced back in the field.

DOMINEER and PENGLAI XIANZI bumped at the start.

RAINBOW FIGHTER was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 950 Metres, MY NAME IS BOND was momentarily crowded for room between SILLY BUDDIES and PENGLAI XIANZI which got its head on the side and shifted out.

For some distance approaching and passing the 800 Metres, MY NAME IS BOND proved very difficult to settle and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SMART MAN.

Making the turn near the 550 Metres, HAPPY YEAH YEAH was momentarily crowded for inside RAINBOW FIGHTER which was racing tight inside SILLY BUDDIES which lay in.

RAINBOW FIGHTER lost its right front plate passing the 300 Metres.

Passing the 200 Metres, MY NAME IS BOND, which was hanging in and proving difficult to ride, was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of SMART MAN which shifted out.

After this, MY NAME IS BOND gave ground.

Over the concluding stages, PENGLAI XIANZI was held up for clear running when racing close to the heels of BEST ELEVEN and consequently was not able to be properly tested all the way to the end of the race.

For the majority of the race, SILLY BUDDIES travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground..

A veterinary inspection of MY NAME IS BOND and HAPPY YEAH YEAH immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

DOMINEER and BEST ELEVEN were sent for sampling.
