Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite True Grit had nothing go right, including a bad squeeze at the start, but still let down strongly after switching into the open 150m out to just collar Universal Go Go for back-to-back wins. Universal Go Go did everything right to hit the front near the 100m out following a box-seat run but get the win. He's racing well this season. Flame Lily just held on for third after leading from the widest gate in his initial run over this course. Electric Lightning kept on well after taking off from near the back to sit outside the leader 650m out. He can bob up at any moment. Perfect To Play stayed on all right following a midfield run on the fence. He doesn't have much upside off his current mark following a win in March. My Family came up flat inside the last 100m after finding a spot one-out one-back from a wide gate. Mr Darthvegar faded after going forward to eventually sit behind the leader from a wide gate. He's better ridden held up for a run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (663) - FRANCE GALOP MEMBERS' DEPARTMENT HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Meters

TRUE GRIT began awkwardly and made heavy contact with UNIVERSAL GO GO which then became unbalanced and shifted out, resulting in TRUE GRIT losing ground when badly crowded for room between UNIVERSAL GO GO and THE JOY OF GIVING which shifted in marginally.

In this incident, THE JOY OF GIVING became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by TRUE GRIT.

ELECTRIC LIGHTNING was crowded for room on jumping between LE PANACHE and HAPPY HOUR, both of which shifted ground.

From a wide barrier, GOLD VELVET was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, MEDIC DRAGON was steadied away from the heels of HAPPY HOUR.

Near the 1300 Metres, HAPPY HOUR commenced to travel keenly and raced tight inside MY FAMILY.

At the 1200 Metres, MEDIC DRAGON was left racing wide and without cover.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, ELECTRIC LIGHTNING was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GOLD VELVET.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, HAPPY HOUR, which continued to travel keenly, shifted out away from the heels of MY FAMILY and then after being shifted back in behind that horse had to be checked away from the heels of MY FAMILY passing the 900 Metres.

When HAPPY HOUR was checked away from the heels of MY FAMILY, THE JOY OF GIVING, which was following, was steadied away from the heels of that horse.

GOLD VELVET, which was following THE JOY OF GIVING, shifted out away from the heels of that horse in consequence, resulting in ELECTRIC LIGHTNING being taken wider.

After this, ELECTRIC LIGHTNING, when racing very wide, was allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead near the 600 Metres.

Approaching the 850 Metres, TRUE GRIT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PERFECT TO PLAY.

Passing the 800 Metres, HAPPY HOUR, which continued to prove difficult to settle, shifted in abruptly away from the heels of MY FAMILY and inconvenienced TRUE GRIT.

At the 600 Metres, THE JOY OF GIVING became unbalanced when racing tight between HAPPY HOUR and GOLD VELVET.

Near the 450 Metres, GOLD VELVET shifted out when being checked away from the heels of MEDIC DRAGON.

At the 250 Metres, MR DARTHVEGAR jumped a mark on the track.

Near the 150 Metres, HAPPY HOUR was momentarily eased away from the heels of TRUE GRIT which shifted out to obtain clear running.
