Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite Athena Baby settled ahead of midfield along the rails, came one off upon straightening and got up in the final 20m for a maiden win at only his fourth start. He has more to come. Sunny Pearl settled second behind Dashing Fortune after jumping alertly, reclaimed the front rounding the final bend and grudgingly gave way late. King Of Reason settled fourth along the paint, rallied four deep and stayed on well to make it close. He's near a bottom. Early favourite Penny Lane settled three back and one off the rails, swung the final bend five deep and kept on rather one-paced. G-One Bo Bo was ridden for luck third from the rear from a wide gate, swung the final bend six deep and was getting going late. He's crying out for a mile. Well-punted late, Fire Starter made some ground near the inside after completely bombing the start by near five lengths. He's an interesting prospect with Class Five on the horizon. Great Toplight made some progress without menacing down the outside from near last.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (443)-FRIENDSHIP BRIDGE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Metres

On arrival at the Start, N Callan expressed concern regarding KING OF REASON's action.

KING OF REASON was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said, after the necessary consultations, the horse was suitable to race.

Also on arrival at the Start, it was noted GLORY BOY had blood in its mouth.

GLORY BOY was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said it had sustained a laceration to the tongue, however, was suitable to race.

As the start was effected, FIRE STARTER stood flat-footed and lost a considerable amount of ground.

Before being allowed to race again, FIRE STARTER will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial.

CITY POWER began awkwardly, resulting in its rider, Apprentice H N Wong, momentarily losing the use of his left stirrup iron.

From the outside barriers, GREAT TOPLIGHT and G-ONE BO BO were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1300 Metres, ATHENA BABY was momentarily crowded for room between DASHING FORTUNE and JET SET DRAGON which shifted in marginally.

Passing the 1100 Metres, VICTOR EMPEROR commenced to race keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PENNY LANE.

SUNNY PEARL lay out making the Home Turn.

Rounding the Home Turn, G-ONE BO BO was held up and unable to improve and shortly after entering the Straight was shifted to the inside of GLORY BOY to obtain clear running.

Passing the 200 Metres, G-ONE BO BO shifted in under pressure and bumped PENNY LANE.

Over the concluding stages, KING OF REASON raced tight outside SUNNY PEARL.

Throughout the race, GLORY BOY and CITY POWER travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, Z Purton (DASHING FORTUNE) stated that after having to work in the early stages to obtain a forward position, his mount did not feel comfortable in its action in the early part of the Straight and felt to him like it may have been experiencing some internal problems.

He said because of this he eased the horse down in the Straight.

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

The performance of DASHING FORTUNE, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, DASHING FORTUNE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

ATHENA BABY and SUNNY PEARL were sent for sampling.
