Recap by phillip woo

Eastern Prowess finished nicely after travelling one off the fence behind midfield to grab victory 80m out. He's turned the corner in the second half of the season and should remain competitive up in grade off a light weight next season over the mile or 1,800m over this course. Speedy Wally charged home late to make it close on the wire after travelling fourth from the rear in a solid first run following a nose bleed in March. He was suited by the tempo of the race but is always a chance at this level. Atomic Blast was short of room late when coming on nicely following a patient ride third from the rear. He's got points in hand at this level and should get away with at least one victory next term over the mile on either surface. Favourite Gold Talent kept grinding away following a midfield run to only fill a Quartet spot. He's in the right class but the big weights will remain a hurdle. Planet Giant was gassed 50m out after briefly finding the front 120m out following a one-off run on the back of a hot pace from a wide gate. He's run well in victory and defeat from bad gates nearly all season long and should remain a nice money spinner for the yard next term.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (790)-STREET CAT HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

FRIENDS FOREVER shifted in at the start and bumped GOLD TALENT.

PLANET GIANT shifted in at the start and bumped DUTCH WINDMILL.

From wide barriers, LUCKY FRIENDS, SPEEDY WALLY and DUTCH WINDMILL were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

In the middle stages, FRIENDS FOREVER proved difficult to settle in the lead and travelled keenly.

Passing the 1200 Metres, LUCKY FRIENDS got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of ATOMIC BLAST.

After the 800 Metres, SPEEDY WALLY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of EASTERN PROWESS.

Shortly after entering the Straight, ATOMIC BLAST was shifted to the outside of EASTERN PROWESS to obtain clear running and passing the 300 Metres bumped SPEEDY WALLY which became unbalanced.

Approaching the 250 Metres, NOVEL START and PLANET GIANT raced tight due to both horses shifting ground.

Over the concluding stages, ATOMIC BLAST was hampered when awkwardly placed inside SPEEDY WALLY (Z Purton) which shifted in under pressure.

Z Purton was severely reprimanded and advised that in similar circumstances he would be expected to stop riding and straighten his mount.

Also over the concluding stages, LUCKY FRIENDS raced tight between KIM GLORY and NOVEL START which shifted in.

The performance of FRIENDS FOREVER, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, FRIENDS FOREVER will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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