Recap by phillip woo

Well-prepared So Fast showed gate speed to dictate the running, cornered narrowly on top from Ten Flames and drew clear for a convincing debut win. He's got room to head a lot higher. Favourite Regency Darling settled three back along the rails, pulled off heels five deep at the 300m and ran on steadily to just out bob Ten Flames for second. Ten Flames jumped better with the blinkers to settle one off with cover in third, ranged up to draw nearly level four deep and grudgingly gave way. Winner St Paul's travelled fourth from the rear and one off the rails, rounded the final bend four deep and finished well to edge Diamond Master for a quartet spot. Diamond Master was only plodding under a big weight following a prominent run along the fence. How Speedy made some ground from beyond midfield without menacing. Faithful Boy was never a factor widest out upon straightening after a deep run ahead of midfield with some cover from a wide gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (710)-LEVADE HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

When leaving the Parade Ring, LUCKY PROFIT lost its left front plate.

After the plate was refitted, LUCKY PROFIT was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

LUCKY PROFIT again lost its left front plate passing the 400 Metres.

ULTIMATE WINNERS began only fairly and shortly after the start was shifted across behind runners.

HOW SPEEDY began only fairly and shortly after the start raced in restricted room between TEN FLAMES and REGENCY DARLING which got its head on the side and shifted out.

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

For some distance after the 1000 Metres, DIAMOND MASTER proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when being checked away from the heels of SO FAST.

After the 600 Metres, DIAMOND MASTER again was steadied away from the heels of SO FAST when over-racing.

Near the 500 Metres, REGENCY DARLING got its head on the side and lay out towards the heels of GLORY SUNSHINE.

Near the 50 Metres, TEN FLAMES and REGENCY DARLING raced tight.

Over the concluding stages, FAITHFUL BOY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HOW SPEEDY which shifted out.

The performance of RISING FAST, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

When questioned, W M Lai stated that it had been agreed that GLORY SUNSHINE should be ridden in a forward position.

He said in accordance with his instructions, he rode his mount aggressively in the early stages, however, TEN FLAMES was also vigorously ridden to maintain its position to the inside of GLORY SUNSHINE.

He said he continued to ride GLORY SUNSHINE along, however, the horse showed insufficient pace to be able to establish a margin over TEN FLAMES and therefore after the 1000 Metres he desisted in riding his mount along as he believed that he would have had to make too much use of GLORY SUNSHINE to attempt to obtain the lead when the horse was not showing sufficient natural speed.

He said this resulted in GLORY SUNSHINE racing in a three wide position without cover throughout the race outside TEN FLAMES.

SO FAST and REGENCY DARLING were sent for sampling.
