Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Hella Hedge took the sit behind the surprise leader Silver Gatsby, came one off soon after straightening, advanced to the front 220m out and kept on gamely for an overdue win from a better draw for a change. Second favourite Golden Chopsticks settled worse than midfield one off the fence, swung the final bend widest out and finished off nicely to grab second 50m out. Who'sthedude ran on well three deep for third following a rail's run in midfield. Tango Fire rounded the final bend with one wider out after making his run one off the fence in midfield and closed off reasonably well to just miss a placing. Red Marvel enjoyed a lovely in the box-seat, was under the pump coming to the final bend, peeled four deep upon straightening and only plugged on one-paced over the final 150m. He had no excuse. Bossiee made some ground without menacing after travelling behind Golden Chopsticks on the fence with late-market support. Bright Star only got by a few after travelling fourth from the rear. Silver Gatsby cleared Hella Hedge for the lead 700m out, straightened a length on top and was giving ground 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (256)-ALBATROSS HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

FLYING MACHINE began very awkwardly and when being steadied in order to be shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier was bumped shortly after the start by SUPER SWEET ORANGE which shifted in when also being steadied to be taken across behind the field.

Near the 1100 Metres, BRIGHT STAR got its head up on a number of occasions when being steadied to allow RED MARVEL to cross.

After this, BRIGHT STAR continued to get its head up on a number of occasions when proving difficult to settle.

Near the 850 Metres, SUPER SWEET ORANGE got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed behind BRIGHT STAR.

Approaching the 600 Metres, WHO'STHEDUDE lay in and became unbalanced after making contact with the running rail.

Passing the 600 Metres, RED MARVEL got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of HELLA HEDGE.

For a short distance at the entrance to the Straight, WHO'STHEDUDE raced tight inside RED MARVEL.

When questioned, D Whyte stated it had been hoped that BOSSIEE would be able to race in about 4th or 5th position, however, after the horse began only fairly and other horses drawn more favourably began well, he shifted BOSSIEE across to obtain a position closer to the rail.

He said this resulted in BOSSIEE racing further back in the field than had been intended.

He said after the 1000 Metres he had to ride BOSSIEE along for some distance as the horse was reluctant to maintain its position inside BRIGHT STAR.

He said approaching the 700 Metres BOSSIEE was able to improve its position to be racing inside GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS and BOSSIEE was again reluctant to maintain its position inside that horse which was shifting ground.

He added however that approaching the Home Turn BOSSIEE commenced to race more genuinely when GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS shifted out and the horse subsequently finished off the race satisfactorily.

HELLA HEDGE and GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS were sent for sampling.
