Recap by phillip woo

Post-time favourite Smart Union was given a magical ride by Joao Moreira to quickly land a spot with cover in midfield from a wide gate, straightened four deep and ran down the uncontested leader Fresh And Fresh 50m out for a maiden win at his 17th outing. Fresh And Fresh was well rated on the lead, turned the final bend a length on top and went down fighting. High Speed Metro popped out for a clear run five deep at the 180m following a rail's run behind midfield and closed nicely to finish a clear-cut third. Glorious Victory kept on reasonably well despite being held up early straight following a handy run along the rails to edge out Little Rainforest for a Quartet spot. Little Rainforest came up flat in the final 150m after going forward to sit one off in second at the 1,500m. Sweet Bean kept plugging away without menacing one off the fence following a box-seat run. Super Strike ran on without threatening with one wider out after making his run one off with cover fourth from the rear. Early favourite Lightning And Gold failed to let down from the back after missing the kick with first-time blinkers.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (047)-VERBENA HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

LIGHTNING AND GOLD lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and was slow to begin.

Then shortly after the start, LIGHTNING AND GOLD was crowded for room between HIGH SPEED METRO which began very awkwardly and shifted out and GLORIOUS VICTORY which also began awkwardly and shifted in abruptly.

Then a short distance after the start, HIGH SPEED METRO became unbalanced after being bumped heavily by GLORIOUS VICTORY.

From wide barriers, SMART PLANET and LET'S GOAL were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1600 Metres, LIGHTNING AND GOLD raced in restricted room between HIGH SPEED METRO and SMART PLANET which got its head on the side and shifted in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SUPER STRIKE.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, SMART GUY was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 900 Metres, LIGHTNING AND GOLD travelled keenly.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, SUPER STRIKE and LET'S GOAL raced tight.

Approaching the 200 Metres, GLORIOUS VICTORY and SWEET BEAN raced tight inside LITTLE RAINFOREST which shifted in.

Passing the 200 Metres, SWEET BEAN was crowded for room between LITTLE RAINFOREST and FRESH AND FRESH which shifted out.

After this, SWEET BEAN raced tight inside LITTLE RAINFOREST and on a number of occasions brushed GLORIOUS VICTORY which was racing to its inside.

As a consequence, both GLORIOUS VICTORY and SWEET BEAN were not able to be fully tested.

A veterinary inspection of LIGHTNING AND GOLD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SMART UNION and FRESH AND FRESH were sent for sampling.
