Recap by phillip woo

La Cote De Bleu settled fifth or sixth along the rails at the back from a wide gate, pushed into the open with two wider out upon straightening and let down strongly to get up 30m out for an overdue win in his initial appearance on dirt. Mister Marc was able to get away with slow early fractions on the lead, built a nearly two length lead at the 200m and found one too smart in the end. Follow The Wind made his run three back along the fence, angled out coming to the final bend, straightened six deep and stayed on well to just miss second. Outsider My Cup Overflows moved to second four deep at the 200m after peeling out 350m out following a box-seat run and was swamped late for a placing. Glorious Avenue ran on reasonably well after being briefly held up early straight five deep after travelling behind midfield and one off the rails. The Only Kid saved ground worse than midfield and made some ground without threatening. High Speed Metro bided his time third from the rear and was making ground late.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (337)-THE LION HERALD HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

CARE FREE ELEGANCE and MIZZEN GREY bumped on jumping.

From wide barriers, LA COTE DE BLEU, HIGH SPEED METRO and SWEET BEAN were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Also from a wide barrier, SOLAR DRAGON proved difficult to settle when being shifted across behind runners in the early stages and then travelled wide and without cover throughout the race.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, HIGH SPEED METRO got its head up when awkwardly placed outside the heels of MIZZEN GREY.

After the 1200 Metres, MISTER MARC travelled keenly in the lead.

Approaching the 300 Metres, GLORIOUS AVENUE was shifted in away from the heels of COLOURFUL PROFIT.

A short distance later, GLORIOUS AVENUE was bumped by COLOURFUL PROFIT which got its head on the side and hung in towards the heels of MY CUP OVERFLOWS.

Passing the 200 Metres, GLORIOUS AVENUE was bumped by THE ONLY KID which shifted to the outside of SOLAR BOY which was commencing to give ground.

Also passing the 200 Metres, CARE FREE ELEGANCE, which was giving ground, was steadied away from the heels of MIZZEN GREY (M Demuro) which shifted out to obtain clear running.

M Demuro was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Over the concluding stages, THE ONLY KID was unable to improve into restricted room between MISTER MARC and MY CUP OVERFLOWS.

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

GLORIOUS AVENUE, LA COTE DE BLEU and MISTER MARC were sent for sampling.
