Recap by phillip woo

Ultimate Dream came on well travelling fore of midfield on the fence to take control 50m out for a first win at his 13th start. He had put signs on the wall late last season and should remain competitive in the grade. Favourite All You Know finished nicely following a one-off run in midfield to just overhaul Universal Go Go by a whisker for second. On the back of this run, he might be worth a try over the 1,800m. Universal Go Go was only on his tippy toes in the last 50m after hitting the front 200m out following a box-seat run in his first mile try. Letsgofree came up one-paced following a prominent run. He's run all right in both starts this term but has limited upside off his current mark. Positively High was stopping in the last 100m after leading from a middle gate. It's taken him a while to acclimatise but his was an improved effort following a gear change. Both Charity Wings and the late-fancied Starlit Knight ran on without ever looking a threat.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (85) - DIANTHUS HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Meters

MAGIC POWER began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of POSITIVELY HIGH, resulting in MAGIC POWER losing ground.

ULTIMATE DREAM shifted out at the start and bumped SPEEDY WALLY.

DISTRICT EXPRESS became unbalanced on jumping after bumping STARLIT KNIGHT.

Shortly after the start, CHARITY WINGS and LETSGOFREE bumped.

After this, despite being vigorously ridden along, CHARITY WINGS failed to muster speed.

From the outside barrier, PEARL FURU was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, SPEEDY WALLY got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of ALL YOU KNOW (D Whyte) which shifted in.

D Whyte was reprimanded.

Both U Rispoli (SPEEDY WALLY) and Apprentice M F Poon (PEARL FURU) were warned against the practice of using the whip on a horse out of contention.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that it was intended for STARLIT KNIGHT to be ridden in a midfield position if possible.

He said after riding his mount positively in the early stages, STARLIT KNIGHT became unbalanced after bumping DISTRICT EXPRESS and then did not display as much early speed as he anticipated.

He said when a number of horses were being vigorously ridden to the inside of STARLIT KNIGHT, he did not believe that the horse would have sufficient speed to be able to take up a more forward position and therefore he steadied his mount approaching the winning post on the first occasion to obtain cover.

He said when racing in a three wide position outside SPEEDY WALLY after passing the winning post on the first occasion, STARLIT KNIGHT travelled keenly and it was not until after the 1300 Metres that he was able to shift in to obtain cover behind SPEEDY WALLY.

He added after the tempo of the race slackened in the middle stages, STARLIT KNIGHT initially quickened nicely in the early part of the Straight, however, the horse's run ended at the 200 Metres with it then finishing off the race only one-paced.

A veterinary inspection of STARLIT KNIGHT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of CHARITY WINGS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ULTIMATE DREAM and ALL YOU KNOW were sent for sampling.
