Recap by phillip woo

Raging favourite Country Star edged clear 150m out following a box-seat run to make it back-to-back wins from three outings despite a rise in grade. There's more improvement to come. Little Bird grudgingly gave way after leading from a wide gate. It was a good run on the back of some bad pre-race antics and he should be able to get away with a race shortly. Grade One found a couple of youngsters too good after stalking the leader one off the fence. He goes well on both surfaces and course and appears from this run to have the tools to step up in Class Three this term. Super Leader finished nicely down the outside to snatch fourth settling second last from a tricky gate. He'll be hard to keep out of the finish if he can draw a gate. Fantastic Feeling kept on all right sitting fore of midfield with cover from a wide gate. It was another honest effort carrying top weight. Navas ran on late from the back. He'll be hard to beat with a return to Class Four.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (108) - WARATAH HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

When proceeding into the Parade Ring, LITTLE BIRD bumped a gate.

LITTLE BIRD was examined by the Veterinary Officer and passed suitable to race.

On jumping, NAVAS and BUOYANT BOY were crowded for room between SUPER LEADER and GOLDEN SUN, both of which shifted ground.

From a wide barrier, BEAUTY TIME was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 100 Metres, NAVAS was shifted to the inside of TOP SCORE after being disappointed for running between BUOYANT BOY and TOP SCORE which shifted out under pressure.

Then over the concluding stages, NAVAS was awkwardly placed inside the heels of TOP SCORE (M L Yeung) which shifted back in under pressure.

As a consequence could not be ridden all the way to the end of the race.

M L Yeung was advised that in similar circumstances he would be expected to make more effort to keep his mounts straight.

Over the final 100 Metres, SUPER LEADER hung in under pressure and proved difficult to ride.

Throughout the race, BUOYANT BOY travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of BUOYANT BOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

COUNTRY STAR and LITTLE BIRD were sent for sampling.
