Recap by phillip woo

Diego Costa followed Adventurer over from a wide gate to sit second in the run, took closer order coming to the final bend, claimed the lead 330m out and kept on nicely for a maiden win at his fourth start. He's naturally come to hand and does appear to have more to offer now. Happy Chappy couldn't close the margin on the winner but still did rally to take second after a deep run without cover in midfield. Firming favourite Dancing Flames settled one off the fence in third, peeled four deep upon straightening and was plodding over the final 100m with a step up in distance carrying more weight. Debutant Heavenly Master kept up a reasonable gallop after a prominent run along the fence. Respect made some ground four deep after travelling one off the fence worse than midfield in his first outing. He will come on for this run. Ace King failed to let down following a rail's run behind midfield. Adventurer knocked up badly after leading by four lengths until the 600m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (151)-L'OREAL PARIS HANDICAP - Class 4 (Restricted) - 1200Metres

HECARIM lost ground when crowded for room on jumping between DANCING FLAMES and RESPECT which, after beginning awkwardly, became unbalanced when also crowded for room and taken out by SPEEDY BRAVE which in turn was taken out by LE PEGASE which shifted ground on jumping.

Near the 1050 Metres, RESPECT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of LE PEGASE.

After being ridden along in the early stages to lead from a wide barrier ADVENTURER proved very difficult to settle after the 900 Metres despite the efforts of its rider.

For some distance after the 750 Metres, RACINGFORPLEASURE lost ground and became unbalanced when crowded for room inside HECARIM which got its head on the side and shifted in away from MY FOLKS.

At the 600 Metres, RESPECT became unbalanced when being steadied away from the heels of LE PEGASE.

Near the 550 Metres, DANCING FLAMES shifted out away from the heels of DIEGO KOSTA after getting its head up when awkwardly placed behind that horse.

Passing the 300 Metres, HEAVENLY MASTERS was awkwardly placed inside DANCING FLAMES which shifted in under pressure.

In the Straight, ACE KING lay out.

For the majority of the race, HAPPY CHAPPY travelled wide and without cover.

The performance of SPEEDY BRAVE, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

ACE KING lost its left front plate after the race.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that LE PEGASE had sustained a minor wound over the lateral left hind heel.

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

DANCING FLAMES, DIEGO KOSTA and HAPPY CHAPPY were sent for sampling.
