Recap by phillip woo

Perfect Triumph settled one off the fence in midfield, rounded the final bend with three further out and quickened nicely to get up in the final few metres for a second win this season with a move to blinkers. Electronic Gospel rolled forward out deep from a wide gate to sit one off in second, advanced to the front 250m out and again found one better in the end for a second straight run. Very Well sat in the box-seat, was short of room early straight and kept plugging away with clear running to just edge Sure Champ for a placing. Sure Champ travelled behind midfield and one off the rails, angled into the open with three wider out at the 250m and closed off reasonably well thereafter. Sweet Bean was checked passing the post for the first time to a position fourth from the rear along the inside, shifted off heels six deep for a clear run at the 200m and made some progress thereafter. Glorious Victory tended to lay-in while making his run in midfield, straightened four deep and kept on evenly. Favourite Amazing Gift tracked the leader one off in fourth, cornered four deep and only held his ground over the final 150m with a step up in distance. High Speed Metro got going late near the outside without menacing. Mister Marc cornered a length on top and was stopping 120m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (505)-VICTORY HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

SWEET BEAN was slow to begin and shortly after the start was bumped by HIGH SPEED METRO which began awkwardly.

PERFECT TRIUMPH began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, CAPTAIN AMERICA was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 1500 Metres, PERFECT TRIUMPH became unbalanced when momentarily crowded for room between VERY WELL and EVERSPRING which in when proving difficult to settle and when being restrained in an attempt to obtain cover.

In this incident, PERFECT TRIUMPH bumped the hindquarters of VERY WELL, causing that horse to become unbalanced.

Also near the 1500 Metres, SURE CHAMP was steadied away from the heels of GLORIOUS VICTORY (C Y Ho) which shifted in when not properly clear.

C Y Ho was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, GLORIOUS VICTORY took charge of its rider and improved inside the heels of PERFECT TRIUMPH where there was insufficient room which resulted in SWEET BEAN being severely checked.

HIGH SPEED METRO, which was following SWEET BEAN, was also severely checked in consequence.

When HIGH SPEED METRO was severely checked, it shifted out away from the heels of SWEET BEAN, resulting in VIVA GUY being taken wider.

For a short distance after this, GLORIOUS VICTORY continued to be difficult to manage and got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed inside the heels of EVERSPRING.

As the Stewards were satisfied that C Y Ho had made all reasonable endeavours to prevent GLORIOUS VICTORY from improving to the inside of PERFECT TRIUMPH, no action was taken against him.

The Stewards however ruled that prior to being permitted to race again, GLORIOUS VICTORY must barrier trial satisfactorily.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, VERY WELL commenced to prove difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed behind MISTER MARC.

For some distance approaching and passing the 1100 Metres, MISTER MARC travelled keenly in the lead.

Passing the 800 Metres, HIGH SPEED METRO proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when racing close to the heels of SURE CHAMP.

After the 800 Metres, EVERSPRING was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 450 Metres, HIGH SPEED METRO shifted out away from the heels of SURE CHAMP and bumped VIVA GUY, taking that horse wider.

Rounding the Home Turn, SURE CHAMP shifted out and bumped EVERSPRING which became unbalanced.

For some distance in the early part of the Straight, VERY WELL had difficulty obtaining clear running.

A veterinary inspection of AMAZING GIFT, VIVA GUY and EVERSPRING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

AMAZING GIFT, PERFECT TRIUMPH and ELECTRONIC GOSPEL were sent for sampling.
