Recap by phillip woo

Seasons King had the speed to suit and came from near last to deliver an overdue win after putting the writing on the wall late last season. He should be able to double up off a light weight in a higher grade. Raging favourite Happy Sound went too quickly on the lead after travelling keenly. He won't be far off a win. Thumped late in betting, Natural Friendship produced a vastly improved run to fill a placing following a prominent run. A light weight with the blinkers off was the right tonic but he might be able to get away with a race in this grade over possibly 1,400m. Lucky Place was another to turn things around when running on nicely along the inside to give the Quartet value. He was favoured by the pace. The drop in grade failed to help Free November who only plodded in midfield. He'll need further relief in the handicap and lighter weight. Old-timer Real Supreme had his chance in the box-seat. Gold Precious didn't fire after going back.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (001)-TIM MEI HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

HAPPY THREE began very awkwardly and lost ground and in doing so shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of NO LAUGHING MATTER which became unbalanced.

Shortly after the start, BE THERE AHEAD was crowded for room between HAPPY SOUND and FRIENDS FOREVER, both of which shifted ground.

SEASONS KING was steadied shortly after the start and shifted across behind runners.

From the outside barrier, LUCKY PLACE was steadied and shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the first turn, NO LAUGHING MATTER got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FREE NOVEMBER.

NATURAL FRIENDSHIP lost its left front plate at the 800 Metres.

Near the 150 Metres, REAL SUPREME shifted out away from the heels of FRIENDS FOREVER which raced tight outside SEASONS KING.

In the Straight, NO LAUGHING MATTER hung in under pressure and proved difficult to ride.

Throughout the race, SILVER GATSBY travelled wide and without cover.

For the majority of the race, CHANS DELIGHT also travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, Z Purton stated that, despite being aggressively ridden in the early and middle stages, GOLD PRECIOUS did not show any early speed.

A veterinary inspection of GOLD PRECIOUS immediately following the race confirmed the horse to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.

SEASONS KING and HAPPY SOUND were sent for sampling.
