Recap by phillip woo

It was a great race to watch with three tactical moves. Golden Sleep was pulling hard sitting second in the run outside the early leader Roundabout, poked his head in front approaching the 100m from Unicorn and just got the bob down when it counted to hold off the late surge of Magical Beauty for the win. He's clearly at his best over this Valley trip. Magical Beauty was roused to get going 600m out in midfield as horses took off around him, challenged four deep coming to the final bend and just failed to get up. He's a winner waiting to happen at this level. Unicorn found a couple too good in the end after taking off 900m from near last to lead 650m out. He's running reasonably well ever since a switch to the Valley. Favourite Land Grant made it close in the end but did have his chance following a handy run carrying a big weight. He's turned the corner in recent runs but might need to go with an apprentice's claim next time out. Ten Flames finished strongly after biding his time at the rear of the field from a wide gate. He rarely runs a bad race over the 1,200m or mile at the Valley and will be hard to beat when he draws a proper alley. Acclaimed Light was badly held up behind the leaders until the final 50m following a midfield run. He should have gone closer.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (604)-BUSAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

ISTANBUL BEY was slow to begin and then was steadied away from the heels of LAND GRANT which shifted out.

NITRO EXPRESS and ENREACHING bumped on jumping.

NITRO EXPRESS then shifted in, resulting in UNICORN being crowded for room outside CITY WINNER.

From a wide barrier, TEN FLAMES was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, HERO LOOK raced tight inside LAND GRANT which got its head on the side and lay in.

ENREACHING lost its left front plate passing the winning post on the first occasion.

ENREACHING travelled wide and without cover in the early stages and passing the 1200 Metres was allowed to stride forward into the lead.

Passing the 1000 Metres, ACCLAIMED LIGHT was steadied away from the heels of HERO LOOK.

CITY WINNER, which was following, was checked away from the heels of ACCLAIMED LIGHT as a consequence.

HERO LOOK lost its right front plate after the 1000 Metres.

After the 1000 Metres, UNICORN was shifted out and allowed to stride forward to obtain the lead passing the 750 Metres.

Passing the 250 Metres, ACCLAIMED LIGHT was disappointed for running between UNICORN which was commencing to give ground and GOLDEN SLEEP which shifted in.

ACCLAIMED LIGHT was then unable to obtain clear running until passing the 100 Metres and consequently was not able to be properly tested.

Approaching the 200 Metres, TEN FLAMES was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of HERO LOOK which shifted out.

Then passing the 150 Metres, TEN FLAMES was steadied when improving into tight running between NITRO EXPRESS and HERO LOOK which shifted out.

In this incident, TEN FLAMES got its head on the side and shifted out marginally, resulting in NITRO EXPRESS racing tight inside ISTANBUL BEY.

In the Straight, LAND GRANT lay in under pressure and proved difficult to ride.

The declaration of weighed-in was deferred whilst Z Purton, the rider of MAGICAL BEAUTY, second placegetter, viewed the photo finish print.

After viewing the photo finish print, The Stewards concurred with the Judge's placings and accordingly weighed-in was notified on the numbers semaphored by the Judge.

A veterinary inspection of NITRO EXPRESS confirmed the horse to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.

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

LAND GRANT, GOLDEN SLEEP and MAGICAL BEAUTY were sent for sampling.
