Recap by phillip woo

Popping Candy led from a middle gate, straightened near two lengths on top and edged clear for a second win from six starts this term. Honest Horse rushed forward after a flat-footed start to track the leader one off the fence, straightened three deep with every chance and found one too smart as the short-priced favourite. Penang Hall closed off reasonably well four deep following a one-off run in midfield to grab a placing. Our Folks travelled fourth along the fence, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept grinding away to just hold onto a Quartet spot. Ruby Coast was held up until the last 150m after travelling at the tail of the field from a wide gate and finished off nicely thereafter. Nitro Express rallied reasonably well.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (283)-PAK TAM AU HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

ALWAYS WIN began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of PENANG HALL which became unbalanced.

GORGEOUS LEGEND shifted in shortly after the start and bumped IRON BOY.

Shortly after the start, NITRO EXPRESS was steadied away from the heels of FOREVER POSH which shifted out.

From wide barriers, TURF SPRINT, A BEAUTIFUL and RUBY COAST were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1000 Metres, FOREVER POSH shifted out and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HONEST HORSE.

Also passing the 1000 Metres, TURF SPRINT got its head up when racing close to the heels of GORGEOUS LEGEND.

Approaching the 200 Metres, HONEST HORSE raced with its head on the side and passing the 200 Metres lay in, resulting in its rider having to change his whip into his right hand.

RUBY COAST was held up for clear running passing the 200 Metres.

Approaching the 100 Metres, NITRO EXPRESS got its head on the side, shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of A BEAUTIFUL.

Passing the 100 Metres, ABLE DEED, which was giving ground, was checked when crowded for room between NOBLE DE BOY which shifted out and RUBY COAST which, when improving into tight running between ABLE DEED and FOREVER POSH, shifted in after being brushed by FOREVER POSH which shifted in marginally.

As the Stewards were satisfied that this incident was not attributable to any rider error, no further action was taken.

Throughout the race, ABLE DEED travelled wide and without cover.

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

POPPING CANDY and HONEST HORSE were sent for sampling.
