Recap by phillip woo

Plunged to start favourite, Good Companion got the win 150m out following a box-seat run at only his third outing after putting the writing on the wall a start earlier over the same trip. He's still open to improvement and can win another in the grade. Destin came on nicely after steadying approaching the 200m to get the bob down in a blanket finish for the minors following a midfield run in a very promising debut. He'll be winning races. Ambitious Heart stayed on well after travelling fore of midfield to get the lip down for third to continue his positive run of form despite a switch to the Valley. He's a winner waiting to happen. Speedy Achiever was held up early straight after travelling fourth from the rear and ducking underneath runners for a clear run at the 150m to just miss a placing. He should have at least placed with unimpeded running. Golden Deer finished solidly from behind midfield. He's starting to find his feet again after dropping a tonne in the ratings. Gracydad was swamped late for a placing after copping a sharp bump when nearly drawing level for the front 250m out. He continues to knock on the door over this trip. Early favourite Cheer Win ran on without menacing near the inside after travelling second from the rear. The wide gate cost him.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (367)-CLUB STREET HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

From wide barriers, CHEER WIN and SPEEDY ACHIEVER were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

GOLDEN DEER shifted in at the start and bumped AMBITIOUS HEART.

JUMBO HAPPINESS and STARLOT bumped at the start.

JUMBO HAPPINESS then shifted in and crowded DESTIN.

In this incident, JUMBO HAPPINESS became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by DESTIN and shifted in further, resulting in DESTIN being steadied when crowded for room.

After being ridden along in the early stages, UNIQUE JOYFUL got its head on the side and shifted in.

UNIQUE JOYFUL was the steadied when racing wide and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, DESTIN got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of GOLDEN DEER.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, DESTIN again lay out towards the heels of AMBITIOUS HEART.

GOLDEN DEER, which was racing to the outside of DESTIN, was inconvenienced.

Also making the turn after the 600 Metres, CHEER WIN shifted out and raced tight inside the heels of JUMBO HAPPINESS.

Rounding the Home Turn, SPEEDY ACHIEVER became unbalanced after brushing the running rail.

Passing the 300 Metres, YO-YO DA (O Murphy) shifted in, resulting in GOOD COMPANION being momentarily crowded for room.

Then, near the 250 Metres, O Murphy directed YO-YO DA out to relieve the tightening to GOOD COMPANION, resulting in YO-YO DA bumping heavily with VERY RICH MAN which became badly unbalanced when crowded onto GRACYDAD which also became unbalanced when bumped by VERY RICH MAN.

DESTIN, which was following GRACYDAD, was hampered when shifting out away from the heels of GRACYDAD and making contact with AMBITIOUS HEART.

O Murphy was advised that whilst the Stewards acknowledged that the shift out from YO-YO DA was as a result of him correcting the horse so as to prevent causing interference to GOOD COMPANION, nonetheless he was advised to make every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground and causing interference.

SPEEDY ACHIEVER was held up for clear running from approaching the 200 Metres until approaching the 150 Metres.

CHEER WIN momentarily raced tight inside SPEEDY ACHIEVER near the 150 Metres.

Approaching the 100 Metres, SPEEDY ACHIEVER shifted out and brushed YO-YO DA which in turn was taken out onto VERY RICH MAN.

Over the concluding stages, SPEEDY ACHIEVER and GRACYDAD raced tight.

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

A veterinary inspection of VERY RICH MAN and YO-YO DA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GOOD COMPANION and DESTIN were sent for sampling.
