Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Jolly Amber had first crack at the leaders following a prominent run and took control approaching the 150m to open his win account with an important rise in trip. Post-time favourite Aeroluminance stayed on well from midfield to finish a non-threatening second. He was giving the winner too much of an advantage in the weights and is clearly a winner waiting to happen in this grade. Penzance closed well settling ahead of midfield following a slow break to fill a placing 20m out. He's shown a bit more spark in his past two following a downgrade and might be able to get away with a race. The Joy Of Giving finished up nicely travelling worse than midfield on the fence. He too has improved in his past two of three following a drop in class sporting blinkers and the future doesn't look as bleak anymore. Celebration lost a placing 100m out after working hard from a wide gate to sit outside the leader at the 1,400m. He must be kept safe.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (668) - FRANCE GALOP OWNERS DEPARTMENT HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Meters

CLEMENT LEGEND was slow to begin.

PENZANCE began very awkwardly and shifted out, resulting in THE JOY OF GIVING being crowded for room inside AEROLUMINANCE which became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by THE JOY OF GIVING.

Shortly after the start, FRUITFUL LIFE shifted out and bumped FAITHFUL BOY.

From wide barriers, BEST JADE TRIUMPH and LOADED were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1600 Metres, CLEMENT LEGEND was momentarily crowded for room inside THE JOY OF GIVING (O Doleuze) which shifted in.

O Doleuze was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground.

In the middle stages, FAITHFUL BOY travelled keenly in the lead.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, CLEMENT LEGEND was momentarily steadied away from the heels of SWEET BEAN which was steadied after attempting to improve into tight running between THE JOY OF GIVING and WEALTHY FORTUNE which got its head on the side and lay in.

Close to the finishing line, FAITHFUL BOY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CELEBRATION.

In the Straight, JOLLY AMBER shifted ground on a number of occasions under pressure.

A veterinary inspection of SWEET BEAN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

JOLLY AMBER and AEROLUMINANCE were sent for sampling.
