Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Lucky Profit got up in the final few metres following a rails run in fourth. He appears to have another win in him. Diamond Master went forward three deep from a tricky gate to lead 750m out, built a three-length advantage rounding the final bend and found one smarter on the day. Well-fancied late, Never Better finished well with three wider out after travelling outside the favourite to grab a placing 20m out. Speedy Sandy took the sit after leading early on, came one off upon straightening and only plodded over the final 100m with every chance. Geronimo Meadow made up a good deal of ground after travelling second from the rear. Mr Kool settled one off in third, straightened four deep and only held his ground over the final 150m. Winning Boy got going late down the outside without ever looking a chance.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (412)-THE ROTARY CENTENARY CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

LUCKY PROFIT shifted out at the start and bumped NEVER BETTER.

NEVER BETTER then shifted out further, resulting in MASTER COMMANDER being steadied away from the heels of NEVER BETTER.

From wide barriers, WINNING TALENT, GERONIMO MEADOW and WINNING BOY were all steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Making the first turn near the 1150 Metres, MASTER COMMANDER (B Prebble) commenced to prove difficult to settle, got its head up and shifted out when awkwardly placed inside the heels of LUCKY PROFIT (J Moreira) which initially shifted in and then was racing tight inside NEVER BETTER (D Whyte).

In this incident, MASTER COMMANDER lost ground and shifted out abruptly, resulting in STRATUM POWER, WINNING TALENT and WINNING BOY all being hampered in consequence.

The Stewards accepted B Prebble's evidence that his horse's racing manners had largely caused the incident, but nonetheless J Moreira was advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear of runners when shifting ground.

D Whyte was also advised to ensure that there is comfortable racing room for runners to his inside.

After the 850 Metres, MASTER COMMANDER got its head up when proving difficult to settle.

After the 800 Metres, GERONIMO MEADOW raced tight inside STRATUM POWER which got its head on the side and shifted in away from WINNING TALENT which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of STEP FASTER which shifted in.

WINNING BOY, which was following, was shifted out away from the heels of STRATUM POWER in consequence.

Rounding the Home Turn, WINNING TALENT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of REWARDING FLYER.

For the majority of the race, STEP FASTER travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, K C Ng stated that he was asked to attempt to have MR KOOL begin well, however, as the horse had on occasions been tardy at the start, if it again did not jump well, he should obtain a position with cover.

He said MR KOOL began well tonight and therefore he rode it along in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

When questioned regarding his riding of GERONIMO MEADOW after the 600 Metres, N Rawiller stated that the pace of the race at this time was quite fast.

He said GERONIMO MEADOW was resuming tonight from an injury and he was reluctant to ride his mount along vigorously at this time given the tempo of the race and that he wanted to ensure that GERONIMO MEADOW would be able to finish off the race.

He added in the early part of the Straight he balanced GERONIMO MEADOW up before placing the horse under pressure and it then finished off the race well.

N Rawiller was advised to ensure that he rides his mounts in such a manner so as to ensure that they do not get too far out of their ground.

He was further advised to ensure that he places his mounts under pressure at an appropriate stage of the race to ensure that they are able to finish off their races as best as they are able.

LUCKY PROFIT and DIAMOND MASTER were sent for sampling.
