Recap by phillip woo

Ray Of Gold saved ground behind midfield, angled into the open with three wider out upon straightening and quickened nicely to collar Happy Sound in the final 20m for a third win this term. He should remain competitive next season off a light weight in a higher grade. Happy Sound was pestered on the lead by Happy Century, broke clear by nearly three lengths at the 200m and was out on his feet at the 100m mark in an encouraging first run with a drop in grade. He'll be winning at this level. Fantasticlife came on three deep after settling last from a wide gate to get up 30m out for a placing. Plain Blue Banner improved to travel one off the fence behind midfield coming to the final bend after settling second from the rear, straightened widest out and finished willingly to run down All Times Lucky for a Quartet spot. All Times Lucky travelled effectively one out, one back, moved to second five deep at the 200m and was stopping 80m out. Bernard's Choice made some ground with two wider out after making his run one off the fence worse than midfield. Favourite Good Method came up one-paced over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (774)-MY CHOICE HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

FLYING CAPTAIN began awkwardly and was slow to begin.

PLAIN BLUE BANNER and GOOD LUCK MAN were crowded for room on jumping between ALL TIMES LUCKY which was taken out by MAJOR CONNECTION and SMART GAIN which shifted in.

From the outside barrier, GLORY BOY was steadied in the early stages.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, SPEEDY WALLY was awkwardly placed outside the heels of SMART GAIN.

Near the 1000 Metres, when being steadied to allow ALL TIMES LUCKY (T H So) to cross, MAJOR CONNECTION got its head on the side and shifted out whilst at the same time, ALL TIMES LUCKY shifted in when not quite clear.

T H So was advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground.

Apprentice K K Chiong (HAPPY CENTURY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 800 Metres she permitted her mount to shift in when not clear of GOOD METHOD, resulting in GOOD METHOD being carried in across the rightful running of SMART GAIN which clipped the heels of GOOD METHOD and blundered.

Apprentice Chiong was fined $70,000.

MAJOR CONNECTION, which was following SMART GAIN, was severely checked away from the heels of that horse and shifted out abruptly.

After the race, it was noted that MAJOR CONNECTION had sustained a wound to the left front leg.

Near the 150 Metres, FANTASTICLIFE was shifted in away from the heels of HAPPY CENTURY.

Passing the 100 Metres, GLORY BOY was eased away from the heels of HAPPY CENTURY which shifted out.

SPEEDY WALLY, which was following GLORY BOY, was directed in away from the heels of that horse and over the concluding stages raced with its head on the side.

RAY OF GOLD lay in under pressure in the Straight.

Throughout the race, HAPPY CENTURY travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of GOOD METHOD immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, GOOD METHOD will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of FLYING CAPTAIN immediately following the race found that horse to be lame in its left front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, FLYING CAPTAIN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
