Recap by phillip woo

Highland Dragon easily cleared for the lead from gate 12, straightened nearly two lengths on top and kept on gamely to just hold on for the win with the key being a return to Class Five. Bornfree settled behind midfield and one off the rails, cornered four deep and finished well to make it close and snatch second on the wire. Favourite Trillion Treasure settled fifth and one off the rails after jumping tardily, swung the final bend with three wider out and finished off nicely to make it a blanket finish on the wire. Idyllic Wind covered ground in midfield from a tricky gate, turned the final bend with two wider out and ran on well to just miss a placing in his first run following an injury-induced break. Copy Star kept plugging away following a rail's run fore of midfield. Mr Award travelled without cover near the speed, straightened three deep and was running on empty 100m out. Natural Eight didn't find much in the run to the wire following a box-seat run. China Good travelled one off second from the back after missing the kick and never was a factor. Diamond Angel didn't do much widest out upon straightening after travelling at the tail of the field.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (205)-ASTER HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Metres

Just prior to the start being effected, TRILLION TREASURE put its head down and was then slow to begin.

A short distance later, TRILLION TREASURE was hampered when crowded for room between SUPER TORNADO and MR AWARD which shifted in.

As the start was effected, CHINA GOOD reared, resulting in its rider, H W Lai, becoming unbalanced and causing CHINA GOOD to lose ground.

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

Passing the 900 Metres, IDYLLIC WIND, which was over-racing, was momentarily steadied away from the heels of HIGHLAND DRAGON which shifted in.

Approaching the 500 Metres, NATURAL EIGHT and SUPER TORNADO were briefly crowded for room inside MR AWARD (U Rispoli) which shifted in before being directed out to relieve the tightening.

U Rispoli was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, ALLEY-OOP got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of BORNFREE.

NATURAL EIGHT became unbalanced rounding the Home Turn.

Passing the 300 Metres, IDYLLIC WIND was shifted out away from the heels of TRILLION TREASURE after being awkwardly placed behind that horse.

Passing the 50 Metres, GRACYTOM got its head on the side and shifted in.

A veterinary inspection of CHINA GOOD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
