Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Go-Getter travelled one off the fence beyond midfield, swung the final bend with one wider out and let down well to run down Who'sthedude in the final few metres for a second win from 20 starts. Who'sthedude enjoyed a lovely run in the box seat, swept to the front four deep at the 180m and found one too good in the end. Baltic Warrior bided his time second from the rear after a slow break from a wide gate, rounded the final bend six deep and finished nicely to grab a placing. He can win if he lands a proper draw. Late-fancied favourite Massive Power settled between runners in midfield, rounded the final bend with two wider out and plugged on reasonably well to just fill a Quartet spot. Argentum made some ground near the inside following a rails run in midfield to just miss a Quartet spot. Real Generous settled third from the rear, eased into the open with three wider out at the 220m and closed off okay without menacing. He's better over the 1,800m at this track. Yourthewonforme was stopping 100m out after hitting the front from Gold Precious 400m out following a pace-stalking run. Fairy Eagle only held his ground travelling behind midfield after a slow break.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (500)-HOLLY HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

FAIRY EAGLE began awkwardly and shifted in towards the heels of ARGENTUM, resulting in the horse losing ground.

REAL GENEROUS began only fairly.

When being restrained shortly after leaving the barriers, GOLD TALENT turned its head towards MASSIVE POWER.

BALTIC WARRIOR was slow to begin and, from the outside barrier, was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1500 Metres, REAL GENEROUS raced tight inside GOLD TALENT which was then shifted out to relieve the tightening to REAL GENEROUS.

After this, GOLD TALENT was steadied to obtain cover.

At the entrance to the Straight, DUTCH WINDMILL was awkwardly placed behind WHO'STHEDUDE due to both horses shifting ground.

Passing the 300 Metres, FAIRY EAGLE was shifted out away from the heels of ARGENTUM.

For the majority of the race, SPICY DOUBLE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, Y T Cheng stated that it was felt that, from barrier 11, GOLD PRECIOUS would be able to obtain the lead with relative ease.

He said however that after beginning well, he had to ride GOLD PRECIOUS along for a considerable distance to clear runners to its inside as GOLD PRECIOUS took some time to muster speed.

He said near the 1200 Metres he was able to shift GOLD PRECIOUS in to race on the rail and he immediately commenced to steady the tempo on the horse.

He said however that after being ridden along in the early stages, GOLD PRECIOUS proved difficult to settle and near the 1100 Metres he had to take another hold of GOLD PRECIOUS in an endeavour to have it travel at a more steady tempo.

He added despite this GOLD PRECIOUS continued to race keenly and he was not able to restrain the horse further, resulting in it running quicker than had been anticipated.

A veterinary inspection of GOLD TALENT immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

MASSIVE POWER, GO-GETTER and WHO'STHEDUDE were sent for sampling.
