Recap by phillip woo

Super Euro Star was beautifully rated in front and never looked backed for a third career win. He had been racing reasonably well and relished a return to Class Five. Wellbacked late Royal Chocolate kept on well for second after getting posted deep without cover near the speed early on. He's made a good impression in both Class Five starts this term. Post-time favourite The Show had to switch off the heels of Royal Chocolate at the 150m following a handy run which likely cost him second. Early favourite Raichu was only grinding away to finish a non-threatening fourth following a prominent run. First Beaut kept on all right tracking the winner. He's given a better sight in his past two starts. Diamond Legend made some ground late form near the back. He's naturally coming to hand this season. Sensationally-backed Richcity Fortune came up flat following a midfield run. The quick back-up from a weekend run didn't work.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (228) - UNITED KINGDOM HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Meters

WINGOLD was withdrawn on 3.12.18 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (blood abnormality) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter KEEP GOING.

THE SHOW shifted out at the start and bumped SUPER EURO STAR.

Shortly after the start, RAICHU raced tight between RICHCITY FORTUNE and FIRST BEAUT which shifted out.

From the outside barriers, NEVER BETTER, THE HAPPY BUNCH and KEEP GOING were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 900 Metres, THE HAPPY BUNCH travelled keenly and was awkwardly placed behind HAPPY HAPPY.

After the 800 Metres, HAPPY HAPPY was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 700 Metres, NEVER BETTER momentarily raced tight inside the heels of DIAMOND LEGEND which shifted in momentarily.

In the middle stages, KEEP GOING travelled keenly and proved difficult to shift in behind HAPPY HAPPY to obtain cover.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, HAPPY HAPPY raced tight outside RICHCITY FORTUNE which improved to the outside of RAICHU.

Passing the 300 Metres, THE SHOW raced tight inside RAICHU.

Passing the 150 Metres, A Badel (RICHCITY FORTUNE) dropped his whip.

A veterinary inspection of PEACE ON EARTH immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.
