Recap by phillip woo

Firming late in betting, Safari Magic came on nicely after shifting off the fence into a four-deep position worse than midfield at the 250m to run down outsider Golden Choice close to home for the win following a step back in distance under the incomparable Joao Moreira. Golden Choice flew out of the gates, cornered near two lengths on top and kept on gamely for second in a vastly-improved run. Specked late, Lucky Profit was ridden quietly at the rear of the field from a wide gate, straightened near the inside and finished soundly to snatch third in the final 20m. He's gone nicely in both Class Five this term and will be winning a race soon. Glory Boy tracked the leader along the fence, straightened three deep and only held his ground over the last 100m as the favourite. Our Honour made good ground down the outside to just miss a Quartet spot after travelling second from the rear from a wide gate. Chans Delight ran on steadily five deep after settling one off the fence in fourth. Delight Fortune failed to turn it up another gear after swinging the final bend with three wider out after a handy run along the rails.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (161)-ABERDEEN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Metres

LUCKY PROFIT began only fairly and shortly after the start was shifted across behind runners.

CHANS DELIGHT and FOREVER FUN bumped on jumping.

CHANS DELIGHT then shifted in, resulting in COPY STAR being inconvenienced.

From the outside barrier, OUR HONOUR was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 800 Metres, CHANS DELIGHT momentarily raced tight between DELIGHT FORTUNE and FOREVER FUN which shifted in before being directed out to relieve the tightening to CHANS DELIGHT.

Near the 450 Metres, DELIGHT FORTUNE and COPY STAR bumped.

At the 400 Metres, OUR HONOUR was awkwardly placed close to the heels of DELIGHT FORTUNE.

At the entrance to the Straight, CHANS DELIGHT was shifted out across the heels of FOREVER FUN to obtain clear running.

Near the 250 Metres, SAFARI MAGIC was shifted out away from the heels of FOREVER FUN.

Approaching the 200 Metres, JADE PIPPO was shifted out away from the heels of COPY STAR which was taken out by OUR HONOUR.

Close to the finishing line, SAFARI MAGIC shifted in and bumped GOLDEN CHOICE.

This resulted in LUCKY PROFIT being awkwardly placed inside the heels of GOLDEN CHOICE passing the winning post.

For the majority of the race, FOREVER FUN and JADE PIPPO travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, Apprentice H N Wong (PERFECT SMART) stated that he had been instructed to go forward as had been the case in a number of its previous starts.

He said PERFECT SMART began satisfactorily, however, despite being ridden along in the early stages, failed to show early speed, He said he rode PERFECT SMART along in the early stages to see if it would respond to his riding, however, it soon became apparent to him that horses drawn immediately to the inside of PERFECT SMART were showing superior speed and therefore he shifted his mount across behind runners after travelling a short distance to obtain a position with cover.

GLORY BOY, SAFARI MAGIC and GOLDEN CHOICE were sent for sampling.
