Recap by phillip woo

Punted late Forever Fun got up 10m out after enjoying a lovely run one-out, one-back. He has run well in defeat on odd occasions in this grade this term, including a nice effort on the dirt last start, and a victory was no surprise. Double Master kept on gamely with the claim well utilised after getting pressured for the lead by Oriental Fantasia to just hold second. It was a sound effort following a near 11-week break and he can get away with a race before season's end. Oriental Fantasia wouldn't go down without a fight after punching the breeze in second. He rarely throws a bad race sprinting over this course. Favourite Rugby Diamond just failed to get up for a placing after travelling worse than midfield following a slow start. He's certainly capable of winning at this level but his performance is usually dictated by how he jumps. Seven Luck ran on late without menacing straightening third from the rear following a sluggish break. He's sown progress in his past few starts but is likely better suited over the 1,200m. Massive Move was again disappointing following a box-seat run. He's had his chances in two recent starts at this level and is hard to entertain when he next steps out.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (635)-SUFFOLK HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Metres

RUGBY DIAMOND, which was fractious in the barriers, was slow to begin.

PERFECT SMART and SEVEN LUCK began only fairly.

DOUBLE MASTER shifted in at the start and bumped the hindquarters of THE GREATEST which became unbalanced.

Passing the 800 Metres, SPARKLING TALENT raced tight between PERFECT SMART and NOBLE BUDDIES which got its head on the side and hung in despite the efforts of its rider.

NOBLE BUDDIES continued to hang in and making the turn after the 600 Metres shifted in, resulting in MASSIVE MOVE and FOREVER FUN being momentarily crowded for room.

Passing the 150 Metres, RUGBY DIAMOND raced in restricted room inside FOREVER FUN when improving into tight running between that horse and ORIENTAL FANTASIA.

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

RUGBY DIAMOND, FOREVER FUN and DOUBLE MASTER were sent for sampling.
