Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Idyllic Wind settled fourth along the rails, straightened three deep and closed off well to make it two on the trot 50m out. Class dropper Giddy Giddy easily secured the lead, cornered near two lengths on top and just held off the late surge of Delight Fortune for second. Delight Fortune came on strongly wides out after a deep run with cover in midfield from an awkward gate. Specked late, Sky Full Of Stars made progress late near the inside after saving ground worse than midfield in an improved effort with a drop in grade. He's looking for a longer trip. Glory Boy ran on steadily four deep without menacing after making his run fifth from the back. Our Honour only plodded following rail's run in midfield. Forever Fun gave way 150m out after tracking the speed three deep without cover from an awful gate. He's one to keep safe from a better draw. Fotogenic failed to lift with two wider out upon straightening following a handy run with cover. Perfect Smart was stopping 200m out after staking the leader one off the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (122)-WA MEI SHAN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Metres

EAGLE KING was crowded for room on jumping between IDYLLIC WIND and GIDDY GIDDY which shifted in.

THE PALADIN was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, GLORY BOY and DRAGON ENERGY were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 900 Metres, OUR HONOUR shifted out marginally and bumped DELIGHT FORTUNE, causing both horses to become badly unbalanced and for DELIGHT FORTUNE to be taken out onto FOREVER FUN.

After this, OUR HONOUR proved difficult to settle when being steadied to obtain cover.

Near the 550 Metres, SKY FULL OF STARS momentarily raced tight inside OUR HONOUR which shifted in after making contact with DELIGHT FORTUNE.

Passing the 500 Metres, IDYLLIC WIND raced in restricted room inside PERFECT SMART which lay in despite the efforts of its rider.

Shortly after straightening, PERFECT SMART became unbalanced after being bumped by FOREVER FUN which shifted in.

Approaching and passing the 200 Metres, GLORY BOY had difficulty obtaining clear running behind FOREVER FUN and inside FOTOGENIC.

Close to the finishing line, SKY FULL OF STARS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GIDDY GIDDY and consequently was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

Throughout the race, FOREVER FUN travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, Z Purton was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of FOTOGENIC.

He said the horse travelled satisfactorily, however, when placed under pressure in the Straight did not respond to his riding and gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of FOTOGENIC immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of PERFECT SMART immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

IDYLLIC WIND and GIDDY GIDDY were sent for sampling.
