Recap by phillip woo

Backed late Little Fantasy got the better of favourite Bonito 150m out for just a second career win after taking off 600m out after a no-cover run the entire trip travelling worse than midfield. He had been knocking on the door all season long. Bonito wouldn't go down without a fight after working hard from a wide gate to lead 1,500m. He's really come into his own of late and remains one to follow. Open House came on nicely widest out travelling two from the back to finish a close third. He was suited by the return to the Valley at his second outing in Class Five. Gobi Storm kept on one-paced tracking the speed in the box-seat. He's racing better of late but is limited. Master Bernini stayed on without menacing after being cast three deep racing fourth from the back. He hasn't been beaten as far in recent runs and might be near a bottom. Seize The Spirit failed to fire from behind midfield despite a favourable pace up front in his first start in Class Five.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (676) - CORNWALL HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

MASTER BERNIINI and BONITO bumped at the start.

BONITO then shifted out, resulting in OPEN HOUSE becoming unbalanced and WICKER being inconvenienced.

After this, WICKER and OPEN HOUSE were steadied and shifted across behind runners.

Also from a wide barrier, WONDERFUL TIGER was steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Despite being vigorously ridden for some distance in the early stages, COME ON WONGCHOY was slow to muster speed.

After travelling a short distance, SEIZE THE SPIRIT shifted out and bumped MASTER BERNINI.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, WONDERFUL TIGER momentarily raced in restricted room inside MASTER BERNINI.

Passing the 1300 Metres, LETSGOFREE and OPEN HOUSE raced tight inside LITTLE FANTASY.

Near the 950 Metres, WONDERFUL TIGER got its head up when awkwardly placed behind OPEN HOUSE.

After the 600 Metres, LETSGOFREE got its head up when awkwardly placed behind SHINING BRIGHT.

After the 500 Metres, WONDERFUL TIGER commenced to lay in and then in the Straight hung in badly and proved very difficult to ride.

The racing manners of WONDERFUL TIGER were considered unacceptable.

Having regard to the fact that WONDERFUL TIGER had previously been barred for performing in a similar manner, the Stewards ruled that that horse must undergo a series of satisfactory consecutive barrier trials around a bend before being permitted to race again.

Throughout the race, LITTLE FANTASY travelled wide and without cover.

MASTER BERNINI lost its right front plate after the race.

A veterinary inspection of SEIZE THE SPIRIT and MEGATRON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LITTLE FANTASY and BONITO were sent for sampling.
