Recap by phillip woo

California Aspar took the sit behind the speed, hit the front 200m out and had just enough left in the tank to hold off Showing Character for a first win at his 13th outing. It wasn't a strong race and he'll find it harder if tossed into Class Three. Showing Character flashed home one from the right after a deep run travelling worse than midfield. It was his first run of the campaign and must be considered when next stepping out. Plunged late Our Honour peaked on his run 50m out after coming to win the race at the 200m following a prominent run along the fence. He's doesn't have many points in hand after a win three back in Class Five. Applause finished well down the outside after settling third from the rear from a wide gate to give the Quartet some value. It was his best run to date but he didn't beat much. Junzi was briefly held up at the 200m but didn't seem to run out a strong 1,200m following a rail run behind midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (211) - HAMILTON HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

NATURAL FLARE was slow to begin.

FANTASTIC FABIO shifted out at the start and bumped THE FULL BLOOM.

THE FULL BLOOM then became unbalanced when buffeted between FANTASTIC FABIO and PEACE COMBINATION which became unbalanced after being bumped by THE FULL BLOOM.

From wide barriers, JUNZI, NOBLE STAR and SHOWING CHARACTER were all steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, NATURAL FLARE and NOBLE STAR bumped.

Rounding the Home Turn, CALIFORNIA ASPAR and FANTASTIC FABIO bumped.

Shortly after entering the Straight, OUR HONOUR was shifted to the inside of CALIFORNIA ASPAR to obtain clear running.

After the 300 Metres, MEGA TREASURE was shifted in away from the heels of GRAND HARBOUR and then was awkwardly placed between that horse and JUNZI until near the 200 Metres.

THE FULL BLOOM was unable to obtain clear running from approaching the 200 Metres until after the 100 Metres and consequently was not able to be properly tested.

For the majority of the race, PEACE COMBINATION travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of GRAND HARBOUR and THE FULL BLOOM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
