Recap by phillip woo

Dragon Bachelor travelled without cover passing the 600m in midfield, swung the final bend five deep and got up 150m out for the win. Late-fancied favourite, High Speed Metro hugged the rails behind midfield, rounded the final bend four deep and closed off well to grab second 50m out. Zachary settled one out and one back, was shuffled back to midfield coming to the final bend, peeled into the clear with three wider out upon straightening and finished well for a placing. Everspring bided his time at the tail of the field from a wide gate, pushed widest out soon after straightening and edged early favourite Sure Champ for a Quartet spot. Sure Champ got shuffled back to travel second from the rear and one off the fence, angled into the open with three wider out at the 300m and closed off reasonably well. Good Thinker was never able to find cover while travelling third behind the leader New Pet, straightened three deep and kept on evenly over the final 150m. New Pet worked to the lead at the 1,500m from a wide gate, cornered near two lengths on top and was stopping 100m out. Zero Energy Act was one wide out upon straightening after getting posted three deep with cover worse than midfield at the 600m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (590)-HERON HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

HIGH SPEED METRO began awkwardly and lost ground.

SUPER HORSE was slow to begin.

SURE CHAMP began only fairly.

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

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, ZACHARY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of NEW PET.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, DRAGON BACHELOR was steadied away from the heels of GOOD THINKER which shifted in.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, ZACHARY lost its right front plate and NEW PET lost its right hind plate.

In the early stages, GOOD THINKER was left racing wide and without cover and near the 800 Metres was allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead.

Passing the 800 Metres, ZACHARY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GLORIOUS VICTORY after being disappointed for running to the outside of that horse and inside DRAGON BACHELOR.

Near the 650 Metres, ZACHARY and ZERO ENERGY ACT raced tight as ZACHARY attempted to improve between GLORIOUS VICTORY and ZERO ENERGY ACT.

Passing the 600 Metres, ZACHARY was then awkwardly placed close to the heels of GLORIOUS VICTORY and shifted in, resulting in SURE CHAMP being momentarily tightened.

Approaching the 400 Metres, HIGH SPEED METRO was held up for clear running behind LITTLE RAINFOREST.

DRAGON BACHELOR lost its right front plate after the winning post.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that ZACHARY had sustained a wound to the right hind fetlock.

A veterinary inspection of ZERO ENERGY ACT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

DRAGON BACHELOR and HIGH SPEED METRO were sent for sampling.
