Recap by phillip woo

Lotus Breeze took control 150m out after a prominent run along the fence to notch a second win from his past three starts. He's turned a new lease on life following a drop back to sprinting but he might find it harder near the top of the grade when next stepping out. Travel Datuk closed off nicely to grab second 20m out after angling into the open 200m out following a one-off run in midfield. The better draw was the key to his improved run. Red Kylin stayed on well for a placing following a one-out, one-back run. He's not a prolific winner but has been in the thick of the finish in his past two starts following a fivemonth absence from the tracks. Extremely Fun was headed late for a placing after dictating the run. He likely needed the run following a setback with lameness in January and should give a better sight next time out. Breeders' Star covered ground to get to second at the 500m from a wide gate and came up one-paced over the last 150m. He doesn't appear to be finished yet at this level following a Class Four win in January but needs a barrier. Favourite Wayfoong Vinnie got too far back and did have to switch off heels approaching the 100m. He's capable of better.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (623)-SWIFTLET HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

SUNNY DRAGON lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and lost ground.

Shortly after the start, MALMSTEEN and MORETHANLUCKY bumped.

From wide barriers, GRANITE BELT, WAYFOONG VINNIE and PEARL WARM WARM were all steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

When being steadied to obtain cover approaching the 1100 Metres, MALMSTEEN got its head up on a number of occasions.

Passing the 1000 Metres, MALMSTEEN commenced to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up when being checked away from the heels of MORETHANLUKCY.

For a considerable distance in the middle stages, GRANITE BELT hung in and proved difficult to ride.

BREEDERS' STAR travelled wide and without cover until near the 500 Metres.

Passing the 300 Metres, LOTUS BREEZE raced tight inside BREEDERS' STAR which shifted in marginally.

Near the 250 Metres, MALMSTEEN was checked away from the heels of TRAVEL DATUK which, when improving into tight running between MALMSTEEN and MORETHANLUCKY, was taken out by MORETHANLUCKY which got its head on the side and lay out under pressure.

As the Stewards were satisfied that TRAVEL DATUK was committed to the run outside of MORETHANLUCKY at the time that horse shifted out, no further action was taken.

Passing the 100 Metres, WAYFOONG VINNIE was shifted in away from the heels of BREEDERS' STAR to obtain clear running after being awkwardly placed behind that horse.

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

A veterinary inspection of MALMSTEEN immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, MALMSTEEN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of GRANITE BELT and WAYFOONG VINNIE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
