Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed late Diamond Legend came on strongly near the outside after switching off from a wide gate to get up 30m out for the win despite a tendency to lay in under pressure. He had put the writing on the wall at his final start last season and looks to have more wins to come. He'll get further as well. Argentum was held up for a run until switching out at the 150m following a patient run third from the rear and finished well to make it close. He should have gone close to winning and will be hard to beat over a longer trip next time out. I'm The Won For U stayed on well to place after having to duck inside the tiring Massive Move at the 150m following a speed-chasing run. It was a vastly-improved run on the turf following a stable change but he's clearly a better prospect on the dirt. Specked late, Forever Posh ran on steadily from midfield to photo out Massive Move for fourth. This was one of his better runs on the turf but he's not genuine.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (65) - BEGONIA HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

WORLD CITY lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and missed the start.

ARGENTUM began awkwardly and made contact with the inside of its barrier.

GENEROUS BOBO shifted in soon after the start and made contact with FOREVER POSH.

From a wide barrier, DIAMOND LEGEND was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, LOOK ERAS was steadied when tightened for room between MASSIVE MOVE and JUNGLE KING, both of which shifted ground.

At the 1100 Metres, ARGENTUM, which was being steadied to obtain cover, was inconvenienced by GENEROUS BOBO which shifted out.

Approaching the first turn near the 1000 Metres, JUNGLE KING shifted out slightly and made contact with the hindquarters of MASSIVE MOVE.

As a consequence of the contact on its hindquarters, MASSIVE MOVE became unbalanced and then shifted in abruptly despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in JUNGLE KING being crowded and severely checked which in turn caused GENEROUS BOBO to be taken in onto the heels of FOREVER POSH.

In this incident, GENEROUS BOBO clipped the heels of FOREVER POSH and blundered badly.

As the Stewards were satisfied that the incident was not due to any carelessness exhibited by any rider, no further action was taken.

RUGBY DIAMOND and MASSIVE MOVE travelled wide and without cover until approaching the 600 Metres.

At the entrance to the Straight, ARGENTUM was steadied away from the heels of WORLD CITY and then shifted to the inside of that horse to obtain clear running.

At the 150 Metres, THE LEGEND was steadied when disappointed for running between RUGBY DIAMOND and I'M THE WON FOR U.

After passing the 100 Metres, GENEROUS BOBO and REGENCY HONEY brushed which resulted in both horses becoming unbalanced.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of U Rispoli (FOREVER POSH), 4th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horse's finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

A veterinary inspection of JUNGLE KING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of WORLD CITY immediately following the race confirmed the horse to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

LOOK ERAS, DIAMOND LEGEND and ARGENTUM were sent for sampling.
