Recap by phillip woo

Well-punted late, Forever Fun enjoyed a lovely run in the box seat, swept to the lead three deep at the 150m and kept on gamely for a first win at his 20th start. Whistle Blower settled midfield along the fence, rounded the final bend four deep and finished well to grab second 20m out. Favourite A Fast One emerged the leader from a middle gate, cornered a length on top and was out on his feet late. He had no excuse. King's Steed settled one off the fence in midfield, straightened three deep and kept grinding away to finish a non-threatening fourth. Easy Ahead travelled third from the rear, turned the final bend near four deep and ran on reasonably well to just miss a Quartet spot. Happy Homing peaked on his run 150m out after he got going fourth from the rear. O'Socoole never lifted when asked for an effort following a handy run with cover. Specked late, Spurs On gave way after a no-cover run near the speed from an awkward gate. All Times Lucky eased back to travel three deep with cover beyond midfield, swung the final bend with three wider out and never ran on when asked for an effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (464)-LUARD HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

WHISTLE BLOWER began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of O'SOCOOLE which became unbalanced.

EASY AHEAD shifted in and bumped ALL TIMES LUCKY on jumping.

Shortly after the start, ALWAYS WONGCHOY and HAPPY HOMING bumped.

From a wide barrier, ALL IS WELL was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 650 Metres, ALL TIMES LUCKY momentarily raced tight inside SPURS ON which was steadied to allow SURREAL to cross.

After this, ALL TIMES LUCKY got its head up when proving difficult to settle.

Making the turn after the 650 Metres, KING'S STEED got its head on the side and lay in, resulting in WHISTLE BLOWER being momentarily crowded for room.

SURREAL travelled wide and without cover until near the 650 Metres.

Approaching the 400 Metres, O'SOCOOLE shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SURREAL which shifted out under pressure.

Then passing the 400 Metres, KING'S STEED, which improved into tight running between WHISTLE BLOWER and O'SOCOOLE (C Y Ho), was steadied when O'SOCOOLE shifted back in.

C Y Ho was severely reprimanded and advised that he has an obligation to be clear of other runners when shifting back in to resume his position in similar circumstances.

Over about the last 75 Metres, ALWAYS WONGCHOY got its head on the side and lay in towards the heels of HAPPY HOMING, resulting in that horse being awkwardly placed over the concluding stages.

For the majority of the race, SPURS ON travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of ALL TIMES LUCKY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A FAST ONE, FOREVER FUN and WHISTLE BLOWER were sent for sampling.
