Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Sunny Boy found just enough after building a near two-length margin at the 300m rolling to the front at the 1,000m to open his win account following a good debut effort last month. It was a big run carrying top weight and he has the tools to head higher. Ambitious Heart couldn't quite cut down the winner after coming to roll him at the 150m following a prominent run on the fence. He's quite an honest performer up to 1,400m. Californiagoldrush came from midfield to edge Forza Angel for a placing in a pleasing debut. He's got more improvement up his sleeve and is bred to handle a longer trip. Forza Angel made it close for a placing racing handy one off the fence in his best run to date. He's shown hints of ability and may have appreciated the wet going. Magnificent stayed on without menacing following a midfield run. He's very hard to get right.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (631) - THE PURVES QUAICH (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1200Meters

PRINCE HARMONY began only fairly and then, despite being ridden along in the early stages, took some time to muster speed.

CALIFORNIAGOLDRUSH was crowded for room on jumping between MAGNIFICENT which shifted out marginally and LEAN AMBASSADOR which shifted in.

In this incident, MAGNIFICENT became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by CALIFORNIAGOLDRUSH.

DECISIVE ACTION shifted in at the start and bumped FORZA ANGEL.

Approaching the 900 Metres, DECISIVE ACTION got its head on the side and lay in away from FAIRY TWINS.

Then passing the 900 Metres, DECISIVE ACTION was severely checked when crowded for room between FAIRY TWINS and CALIFORNIAGOLDRUSH (C Y Ho) which shifted out marginally away from the heels of AMBITIOUS HEART before getting its head on the side and shifting out further.

LEAN AMBASSADOR, which was following DECISIVE ACTION, was checked away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

C Y Ho was reprimanded and advised that whilst there were some circumstances to this incident, nonetheless he must ensure that he is properly clear of other runners when shifting ground.

Passing the 850 Metres, FAIRY TWINS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PRINCE HARMONY.

At the 250 Metres, FAIRY TWINS was shifted out away from the heels of PRINCE HARMONY which shifted out away from CALIFORNIAGOLDRUSH.

Throughout the race, WINNING SUPREME travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, it was reported that LEAN AMBASSADOR had bled from both nostrils.

As this was the third occasion that LEAN AMBASSADOR had been found to have bled during a race, the horse will be compulsorily retired.

A veterinary inspection of FAIRY TWINS immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

SUNNY BOY and AMBITIOUS HEART were sent for sampling.
