Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Victory Boys won with something in hand after taking off 500m out following a patient ride near the back to take control 150m out for a third win from his past four starts despite an unfavourable place. He remains a winning chance off a lightweight in the next class. Newswire Free circled the field 700m out to poke his head in front 200m out after travelling fourth from the rear but was no match for the winner. He continues to knock on the door with placings in five of 16 starts. Pearl Furu lived up to a pleasing first-up run when rallying well from midfield to snatch a placing from Mr Kool and might want 1,800m now. Mr Kool looks a winner waiting to happen if he can get a drop into Class Five following a game pace-stalking effort. Soul Achiever was only onepaced when hampered 150m out following a box-seat run. Great Toplight is better when ridden with a bit of patience instead of dictating the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (081)-KC.

CHINALINK BUS HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

RICHCITY FORTUNE shifted out abruptly at the start, resulting in GOOD CHOICE being badly hampered when taken out.

From the outside barriers, RICHCITY FORTUNE and GOOD CHOICE were then shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

BEST TANGO began only fairly.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, PEARL FURU commenced to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up when being checked away from the heels of SOUL ACHIEVER after racing tight inside CIRCUIT FORTUNE which was taken in by BEST TANGO which in turn was taken in by GLORY STAR (C Schofield).

C Schofield was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room to runners on his inside.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, NEWSWIRE FREE became unbalanced when awkwardly placed close to the heels of CIRCUIT FORTUNE.

Passing the 1300 Metres, SOUL ACHIEVER raced tight inside MR KOOL which got its head on the side and hung in away from GREAT TOPLIGHT.

Near the 450 Metres, BEST TANGO was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MR KOOL.

Passing the 300 Metres, GLORY STAR, which was giving ground, was steadied away from the heels of MR KOOL (M Chadwick) which got its head on the side and hung in.

MR KOOL continued to hang in passing the 250 Metres and bumped SOUL ACHIEVER.

Approaching the 150 Metres, SOUL ACHIEVER was momentarily steadied when crowded for room inside MR KOOL which continued to hang in and proved difficult to ride.

Approaching the 100 Metres, NEWSWIRE FREE got its head on the side, shifted in and bumped MR KOOL which, when continuing to hang in, shifted in, resulting in SOUL ACHIEVER being tightened onto GREAT TOPLIGHT and close to the finishing line being steadied.

M Chadwick was advised that whilst the Stewards accepted that MR KOOL was hanging in and proving very difficult to ride, nonetheless he must make every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground even in difficult circumstances.

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

A veterinary inspection of GLORY STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.
