Recap by phillip woo

Hit A Home Run peeled into the open rounding the final bend rated behind midfield and finished willingly to pick off Unique Joyful in deep stretch for a sixth career win. He was pretty well rated and appreciated the step back to a mile at his third run in this class. Stable apprentice Matthew Poon Ming-fai's 10-pound claim might give him a chance up in class off a feather weight. Post-time favourite Unique Joyful was given a lovely ride in the box seat by Zac Purton to claim the front 300m out and was on his tippy toes late. He's a winner waiting to happen at 1,400m. Early favourite Cash Courier just out-finished Fortune Giggles two from the right to finish a distant third after travelling fourth from the rear from a wide gate. He'll be winning shortly in this grade over a mile or possibly 1,800m and does handle both tracks. Fortune Giggles ran on steadily from midfield. He's seems more effective nowadays over a longer trip. Yourthewonforme didn't finish all that far back after a tough run. He isn't far off a winning run but needs to draw a gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (625)-BERING SEA HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1600Metres

SUPERNATURAL was withdrawn on 6.5.17 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter FUN MANAGER (H Bowman).

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

On arrival at the Start, it was noted that BONITO had blood at its mouth.

BONITO was examined by the Veterinary Officer and passed suitable to race.

YOURTHEONEFORME shifted in at the start and bumped FANTASTICLIFE.

A short distance after the start, FANTASTICLIFE was awkwardly placed outside the heels of LIGHTNING AND GOLD.

Shortly after the start, BONITO was steadied away from the heels of KING OF SMARTS which shifted in.

In this incident, KING OF SMARTS got its head on the side and shifted in further after being bumped on the hindquarters by BONITO.

From wide barriers, LUCKY FRIENDS and EQUITY DOCTRINE were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

After the 800 Metres, AH BO raced with its head on the side and near the 650 Metres hung out onto the heels of LIGHTNING AND GOLD, resulting in AH BO being steadied and losing ground.

At the entrance to the Straight, FORTUNE GIGGLES was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BONITO.

Approaching the 200 Metres, FUN MANAGER momentarily raced tight between KING OF SMARTS which was giving ground abruptly and FORTUNE GIGGLES which shifted in after racing tight inside BONITO.

LUCKY FRIENDS lay in under pressure in the Home Straight.

Throughout the race, YOURTHEWONFORME travelled wide and without cover.

HIT A HOME RUN and UNIQUE JOYFUL were sent for sampling.
