Recap by phillip woo

Specked late Forever Fun was posted deep without cover near the speed, advanced to the front four deep at the 150m and just held off the luckless Intellectual Glide for a second win this season. Intellectual Glide couldn't obtain a clear run until the 100m following rails run worse than midfield and finished willingly to make it close despite drifting out under pressure. He should have won. Manhattan Striker eased back to travel at the tail of the field from a wide gate, swung the final bend furthest out and closed off nicely to get up for a placing in an improved run with a drop in grade. Ace King finished well along the inside to snatch a Quartet spot after travelling second from the rear. Sea Warrior was given every chance one-out, one-back, eased into the open five deep 250m out and kept up an even gallop despite being forced deep on the track over the final 100m. Firming favourite Giddy Giddy got away with moderate fractions on the lead, cornered a halflength on top and was yielding ground 100m out. Ever Shiny didn't get going after travelling third from the rear. Lucky Ball was held up early straight behind the leaders following a handy run along the inside but found nothing with a clear run over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (765)-BULLDOZER HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

ACE KING and INTELLECTUAL GLIDE began only fairly.

From a wide barrier, MANHATTAN STRIKER was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the turn approaching the 1000 Metres, ACE KING momentarily raced tight inside EVER SHINY which shifted in.

Approaching the 800 Metres, GOLDEN GUNNERS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of REAL FIT.

At the 300 Metres, SEA WARRIOR was eased away from the heels of FOREVER FUN and then leaving the 300 Metres shifted out and brushed GOLDEN GUNNERS which became unbalanced.

For some distance after the 200 Metres, INTELLECTUAL GLIDE and SEA WARRIOR raced tight as INTELLECTUAL GLIDE shifted out to obtain clear running.

Approaching the 150 Metres, ACE KING was shifted in away from the heels of LUCKY BALL to obtain clear running.

Passing the 100 Metres, GOLDEN GUNNERS was steadied away from the heels of SEA WARRIOR which was taken out by INTELLECTUAL GLIDE (Apprentice K K Chiong).

INTELLECTUAL GLIDE then continued to shift out, resulting in SEA WARRIOR being taken wider and NOBLE BUDDIES having to be steadied away from the heels of SEA WARRIOR passing the 50 Metres.

Apprentice Chiong was advised that whilst the Stewards encourage competitive riding, she had allowed her mount to shift out over the concluding stages and accordingly was severely reprimanded and told that in similar circumstances she would be expected to stop riding and straighten her mounts.

Throughout the race, FOREVER FUN travelled wide and without cover.

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