Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite New Asia Sunrise settled fore of midfield and one off the rails, pulled into the open five deep at the 250m and finished well when balancing up to run down leader Circuit King 20m out to remain unbeaten in two starts. Circuit King went to the front from gate 10 with Dragon Harmony parked to his outside, cornered a half-length on top and kept up a good gallop to just miss for a third straight run. Happy Chappy was in the box-seat early on, got shuffled back to midfield at the 900m, straightened one off the fence and closed off well to grab a placing 50m out. Dragon Harmony stalked the speed until peaking on his run 100m out in an improved effort with a tongue-tie. Newcomer Diego Costa stayed to the inside upon straightening after finding a box-seat position from an awkward gate and only held his ground over the final 150m. Solar Kid was posted three deep without cover near the speed and couldn't stay in touch with two wider out at the 150m. Debutant Leading Horse was still last upon straightening and made some ground with one wider out.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (736)-ONE COUNTRY, TWO SYSTEMS PLATE - Griffin Race - 1200Metres

After being loaded, CLEVER SPIRIT became fractious and reared on a number of occasions.

TRIPLE KING began awkwardly and lost ground.

LEADING HORSE was crowded for room on jumping between NEW ASIA SUNRISE which shifted out after being bumped by TRIPLE KING and CLEVER SPIRIT which shifted in.

From the outside barrier, GOOD FOR YOU was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 900 Metres, CLEVER SPIRIT proved very difficult to settle, took charge of its rider and shifted in abruptly when being checked away from the heels of NEW ASIA SUNRISE, which was awkwardly placed behind DRAGON HARMONY, and in doing so made significant contact with the hindquarters of JIMSON THE FAMOUS which became badly unbalanced.

LEADING HORSE and TRIPLE KING, which were following, were checked in consequence.

After this, JIMSON THE FAMOUS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY CHAPPY and blundered.

The racing manners of CLEVER SPIRIT were considered unacceptable.

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

Also approaching the 900 Metres, HAPPY CHAPPY was steadied away from the heels of DIEGO KOSTA which was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CIRCUIT KING (N Callan) which, after obtaining the lead, was then steadied.

N Callan was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he does not excessively slacken the tempo of races.

Approaching and rounding the Home Turn, CIRCUIT KING got its head on the side and lay out and in the Straight hung out under pressure.

In the early part of the Straight, NEW ASIA SUNRISE hung in and proved difficult to shift to the outside of DRAGON HARMONY.

Approaching the 50 Metres, DRAGON HARMONY was steadied away from the heels of CIRCUIT KING which continued to shift out.

N Callan was reprimanded and advised that in similar circumstances he would be expected to stop riding and straighten his mounts.

Throughout the race, SOLAR KID travelled wide and without cover.

B Prebble (NEW ASIA SUNRISE) was fined $5,000 for improper use of the whip in that he raised weal marks over the horse's right flank.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into consideration that B Prebble had previously been penalized for a like offence.

N Callan was fined $3,000 for improper use of the whip in that he raised weal marks over the horse's left flank.

NEW ASIA SUNRISE and CIRCUIT KING were sent for sampling.
