Recap by phillip woo

In a blow-out result, London City just held on for the win after working to the lead 200m out following a lovely run fourth along the fence. He's not easy to get right but all credit to David Ferraris who's only had him for two outings. Diamond Mysterious woke up with blinkers to come on strongly two from the right after travelling fourth from the rear to make it close on the wire. Chalk his improved performance to the gear change. Orionids grudgingly gave way after being softened on the lead to his outside by Richcity Fortune. He makes his own luck on the speed but isn't anything special. Laugh Out Loud came on strongly wide out from the rear of the field to just miss a placing. It was his best run in a while and he'll need to prove it was no fluke. Compassion Star stayed on all right following a handy run. He's shown some ability in his two outings but likely needs a bit more time. Contribution continued his disappointing form over this course when coming up flat in midfield. Favourite Vital Spring peaked on his run 150m out after getting going 600m out from beyond midfield. He did have to cover a bit of ground but still appears raw and will need to strengthen up. Gracious Ryder never really picked up near the inside.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (522)-GLENEALY HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

ROBUST MOMENTUM began only fairly.

KEEP MOVING shifted out abruptly at the start, resulting in GRACIOUS RYDER being checked and DIAMOND MYSTERIOUS being badly hampered when bumped heavily by GRACIOUS RYDER.

Shortly after the start, PERFECT TOUCH and SUPER TALENT bumped, resulting in PERFECT TOUCH becoming badly unbalanced.

Also shortly after the start, LONDON CITY and SKY TREASURE bumped.

Passing the 1100 Metres, SKY TREASURE shifted in and bumped LONDON CITY.

Near the 1000 Metres, SKY TREASURE (Apprentice H N Wong) lost ground after shifting in away from COMPASSION STAR and being awkwardly placed outside the heels of LONDON CITY which became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by SKY TREASURE.

When SKY TREASURE lost ground, PERFECT TOUCH, which was following, was checked away from the heels of that horse.

GRACIOUS RYDER, which was following PERFECT TOUCH, was shifted out away from the heels of that horse in consequence, resulting in SUPER TALENT being hampered when bumped by GRACIOUS RYDER.

As Apprentice Wong attempted to shift SKY TREASURE out to relieve the tightening to PERFECT TOUCH, VITAL SPRING, which was racing to the outside of SKY TREASURE, was checked out away from the heels of that horse, resulting in DIAMOND MYSTERIOUS also being hampered.

Passing the 1100 Metres, KEEP MOVING was awkwardly placed inside the heels of RICHCITY FORTUNE (Apprentice M F Poon) which shifted in at an acute angle before being straightened.

Apprentice Poon will be warned against the practice of shifting his mounts in too abruptly.

Approaching and passing the 800 Metres, GRACIOUS RYDER got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed behind PERFECT TOUCH.

After the 800 Metres, SKY TREASURE was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 650 Metres, PERFECT TOUCH and VITAL SPRING bumped.

Passing the 600 Metres, PERFECT TOUCH was steadied away from the heels of COMPASSION STAR.

RICHCITY FORTUNE got its head on the side and lay out rounding the Home Turn.

The performance of PERFECT TOUCH, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, PERFECT TOUCH will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned regarding the performance of VITAL SPRING, J Moreira stated that his mount was obliged to race further back in the field that had been anticipated as it did not show sufficient early speed to be able to clear runners to its inside and obtain a more forward position.

He said although VITAL SPRING was hampered near the 1000 Metres, the horse subsequently travelled satisfactorily, however, came under pressure rounding the Home Turn and then, despite being ridden out, did not close off the race and was disappointing.

After the race, A veterinary inspection of VITAL SPRING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of KEEP MOVING and GRACIOUS RYDER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
