Recap by phillip woo

Celestial Smile slotted in three deep with cover in midfield, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished willingly to wear down Apollo's Choice in the final few strides for a second-straight win. Favourite Apollo's Choice travelled fore of midfield one off the fence, rounded the final bend five deep, swept to the lead 200m out and just lost out in a ding-dong finish. Plunged late, Sichuan Dar was sent forward from a wide gate to punch the breeze in second, advanced to the front 350m out and grudgingly gave way in the last 100m. Circuit Land settled one off the fence in midfield, rallied six deep and ran on steadily to just miss a placing while edging out Fantastic Kaka for a Quartet spot. Fantastic Kaka was left without cover in a prominent spot at the 1,000m, ranged up on the leader at the 250m and kept on reasonably well. Newcomer Basic Trilogy had to switch inside off heels at the 250m after straightening four deep following a handy run along the fence and kept on evenly over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (319)-BEAS RIVER HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1600Metres

GORGEOUS KING was slow to begin.

GREEN DISPATCH, which was leaning on the outside of its gate as the start was effected, began awkwardly.

GREEN DISPATCH was then shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, FANTASTIC KAKA failed to muster speed and after the 1000 Metres was left racing wide and without cover.

BRILLIANT SHINE was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

After the 1500 Metres, OBLITERATOR got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FRIENDS OF KA YING.

Near the 1100 Metres, GREEN DISPATCH became unbalanced when racing greenly and awkwardly placed outside the heels of FANTASTIC KAKA which shifted out marginally.

Near the 950 Metres, FRIENDS OF KA YING raced tight inside CIRCUIT LAND which lay in.

Then passing the 900 Metres, FRIENDS OF KA YING lost ground when crowded for room inside CIRCUIT LAND which got its head on the side and shifted in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of APOLLO'S CHOICE.

OBLITERATOR, which was following, was checked in consequence.

As there was no rider error involved in this incident, no further action was taken.

Approaching and passing the 900 Metres, BRILLIANT SHINE proved difficult to settle.

Passing the 900 Metres, APOLLO'S CHOICE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SICHUAN DAR.

Passing the 700 Metres, FRIENDS OF KA YING was steadied away from the heels of BASIC TRILOGY which was awkwardly placed behind WONDERFUL MOMENTS.

For some distance approaching the 300 Metres, FRIENDS OF KA YING raced in restricted room between LITTLE ISLAND and WONDERFUL MOMENTS when improving into tight running between those horses.

After the 300 Metres, OBLITERATOR was shifted out abruptly away from the heels of FRIENDS OF KA YING to obtain clear running.

Near the 250 Metres, BASIC TRILOGY was steadied when disappointed for running between FANTASTIC KAKA and SICHUAN DAR which shifted out marginally.

BASIC TRILOGY was then shifted to the inside of SICHUAN DAR in an attempt to obtain clear running, however, became awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse passing the 150 Metres.

Passing the 150 Metres, FRIENDS OF KA YING was disappointed for running between LITTLE ISLAND and BASIC TRILOGY as a result of BASIC TRILOGY shifting in away from the heels of SICHUAN DAR.

A veterinary inspection of FRIENDS OF KA YING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

CELESTIAL SMILE and APOLLO'S CHOICE were sent for sampling.
