Recap by phillip woo

Great Toplight handed up the front to travel third along the rails at the 900m out, stayed to the inside upon straightening, narrowly reclaimed the lead 150m out and just held off the late surge of outsider Go-Getter for a maiden win with a key step up in distance. Go-Getter made his run just beyond midfield along the rails, caused interference to a couple of horses when angling out four deep at the 150m and finished to make it close on the wire in an improved effort. Winning Mascot was taken back to last from a wide gate, swung the final bend widest out and rattled home late to nail Flying Chaparral for a placing. Flying Chaparral pressed forward to assume the lead at the 900m, cornered narrowly on top and kept plugging away to just hold a First-4 spot. Heart Wood drove forward without cover to punch the breeze in second at the 850m, poked his head in front four deep at the 200m and grudgingly gave way over the last 100m. Cheers Joy bided his time third from the rear and three deep with cover, swung the final bend with one wider out and ran on. Hey Cheers lost every chance when he hit the brakes at the 150m after a slow start. Heavenisaracehorse had to steady five deep at the 150m after a rails run. Plain Blue Banner had a deep run without cover from behind midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (331)-PERCIVAL HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Metres

On arrival at the Start, the tongue tie applied to HEY CHEERS was refitted.

HEY CHEERS, which was leaning on the outside of its stall, began awkwardly, shifted in and was steadied away from the heels of GREAT TOPLIGHT, resulting in HEY CHEERS losing ground.

SURE PEACE lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected, began awkwardly and bumped the hindquarters of CHEERS JOY which became unbalanced.

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

For some distance approaching and passing the winning post on the first occasion, HAPPY CHAMPION got its head up and raced keenly when being steadied to obtain cover behind GREAT TOPLIGHT.

Passing the 1300 Metres, HEY CHEERS got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of GO-GETTER.

For some distance after the 1300 Metres, KITAYA got its head up when proving difficult to settle and awkwardly placed behind HAPPY CHAMPION.

HEART WOOD travelled wide and without cover until after the 900 Metres at which time the horse was able to shift in to race outside the leader.

Approaching the 800 Metres, PLAIN BLUE BANNER was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, KITAYA shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY CHAMPION and bumped CHEERS JOY.

WINNING MASCOT, which was following, was inconvenienced in consequence.

Passing the 200 Metres, KITAYA was checked when disappointed for running between SURE PEACE and PLAIN BLUE BANNER.

KITAYA was then awkwardly placed close to the heels of PLAIN BLUE BANNER for some distance.

Passing the 150 Metres, HEY CHEERS was steadied when awkwardly placed outside the heels of GO-GETTER when attempting to improve to the outside of that horse which shifted out.

Passing the 100 Metres, SURE PEACE raced in restricted room inside PLAIN BLUE BANNER.

Also passing the 100 Metres, FLYING CHAPARRAL and HEART WOOD raced tight.

Near the 75 Metres, HEAVENISARACEHORSE, which shifted in marginally, was steadied away from the heels of GO-GETTER (K Teetan) which continued to shift out.

K Teetan was advised to exercise more care.

Close to the finishing line, HEY CHEERS and HEAVENISARACEHORSE bumped.

A veterinary inspection of PLAIN BLUE BANNER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GREAT TOPLIGHT and GO-GETTER were sent for sampling.
