Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Grace Heart stalked the leader Regency Honey and took control 260m out to notch a second win from his past three starts. The 10-pound claim was gold and he'll likely find it harder up in class. Planet Star flashed home after travelling fourth from the rear following a sluggish break to grab second in deep stretch. He's shown some potential to earn cheques in four of five starts and will be saluting shortly or early next season. Starlight came on nicely after travelling at the rear from a wide gate to edge out Super Form for a placing. He isn't far off another win if he can draw a proper gate. Super Form stayed on well from midfield to just miss a placing following a nice break over an unsuitable trip. He'll need to be kept safe when next stepping out over longer at this track. Plunged late, Salsa Brothers had his chance following a one-out, one-back run. He doesn't have many points in hand following a win two starts back. Regency Honey knocked up badly final 50m after dictating the run. He's still needs some work. Sky Treasure never ran on under the whip after a patient ride near the back from a wide gate. He'll likely be in Class Five after this run where he can show his true colours.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (764)-SHAM CHUNG HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

REGENCY HONEY shifted in at the start and bumped FOREVER FUN.

Shortly after the start, when being ridden along, SIGHT SEEING (B Prebble) shifted out, resulting in SALSA BROTHERS being crowded for room inside OTOUTO and causing SIGHT SEEING, SALSA BROTHERS and OTOUTO to become unbalanced.

B Prebble was advised to exercise more care than he did on this occasion in similar circumstances.

From wide barriers, PLANET STAR, OUR HONOUR and STARLIGHT were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 1100 Metres, SKY TREASURE was left racing very wide and was steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain a position with cover closer to the rail.

For some distance after this, SKY TREASURE proved difficult to settle.

Passing the 800 Metres, after being crossed by SALSA BROTHERS, SCARBOROUGH FAIR commenced to over-race and got its head up when being checked away from the heels of that horse until the 700 Metres.

SIGHT SEEING, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

Then making the turn near the 600 Metres, SCARBOROUGH FAIR again commenced to prove difficult to settle and got its head up when being checked away from the heels of SALSA BROTHERS.

Passing the 600 Metres, STARLIGHT raced tight inside OUR HONOUR which was taken in by SKY TREASURE which shifted in marginally before being shifted back out to relieve the tightening to the runners to its inside.

Passing the 300 Metres, SUPER FORM was shifted out away from the heels of FOREVER FUN.

Also passing the 300 Metres, SKY TREASURE got its head up when being directed out away from SIGHT SEEING.

Close to the finishing line, SUPER FORM was bumped by STARLIGHT which shifted in after initially being brushed by REGENCY HONEY.

Throughout the race, OTOUTO travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of OTOUTO and SKY TREASURE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GRACE HEART and PLANET STAR were sent for sampling.
