Recap by phillip woo

Dragon Bachelor mustered well from a wide gate to clear for the lead 1,300m out, straightened two lengths clear and kept up a good gallop to just hold favourite Redwood Baby by a nose with a tonne of money for him late. Redwood Baby was ridden early on to hold a position in midfield, shifted near four deep upon straightening and finished well to make it close in the end. He'll be winning if he can stay in this grade and tackles 1,800m. Noble De Man stayed on well with three wider out following a one-out, one-back run to finish a distant third. Gold Talent had every chance three deep following a box-seat run and just held on for a Quartet spot. Blazing Pass was getting going nicely near six deep in the stretch drive after a patient ride near the rear from a wide gate to nearly add some spice to the Quartet in an improved performance. Winning Mascot made some ground without menacing near the inside after settling fourth from the rear from an outside gate. King Bountiful was getting going late when the race was all but over after straightening one from the rear. Punted late, Penglai Xianzi got over from a wide gate to sit one off in second, at the 1,300m, straightened four deep with every chance and was stopping 150m out. Endorsing came up empty following a one-off run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (164)-PLOVER COVE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Metres

HEART WOOD was withdrawn on 10.11.15 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left front foot) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter DRAGON BACHELOR (B Prebble).

ENDORSING, which was fractious in the barriers, began only fairly and shortly after the start was crowded for room between SOUTHERN SPRINGS and ONE OF A KIND which shifted in.

BLAZING PASS was hampered shortly after the start as a result of WINNING MASCOT shifting out when being steadied in the early stages to obtain a position with cover from its wide barrier.

From a wide barrier, TRUE COMMENT was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, GOLD TALENT and NOBLE DE MAN momentarily raced in restricted room inside SOUTHERN SPRINGS which got its head on the side and shifted in away from DRAGON BACHELOR.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, SOUTHERN SPRINGS was momentarily steadied away from the heels of DRAGON BACHELOR which shifted in when just clear.

After this, SOUTHERN SPRINGS was left racing wide and without cover.

Approaching the 250 Metres, REDWOOD BABY had difficulty obtaining clear running between PENGLAI XIANZI and GOLD TALENT.

In the Straight, ENDORSING (D Whyte) lay in under pressure.

D Whyte dropped his whip near the 100 Metres.

Near the 50 Metres, TRUE COMMENT was shifted to the inside of KING BOUNTIFUL and PENGLAI XIANZI to continue improving.

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

DRAGON BACHELOR and REDWOOD BABY were sent for sampling.
