Recap by phillip woo

G Unit won eased down after bursting to the front near the 150m sitting one off in third for maiden win after showing some ability in four prior starts. Mehboob finished nicely from behind midfield to grab second 50m out. He was suited by the pace of the race but appears to have improved during the break. Happy Good Guys stayed on well for a placing after getting posted three-deep until slotting one off better than midfield 800m out. Demons Rock ran on well after settling second from the back in his return to the races. He's not far off a bottom. Winning Ways made some ground without menacing travelling one-off behind midfield. He's not genuine. Favourite Best Smile was taken on for the lead carrying a big weight and couldn't turn it up another gear in the straight drive. He did have an excuse. You can ignore Prawn Yeah Yeah's run, he was all dressed up with nowhere to go following a prominent run on the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (98) - PLOVER COVE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Meters

As the start was effected, BEST SMILE became fractious and lunged at the front gates, resulting in the gate opening marginally prior to the remaining gates.

As the Stewards were satisfied that BEST SMILE had not gained an advantage as a result of the gate being forced opened fractionally prior to the other starting gates, no further action was taken.

VEGA RHYTHM was checked on jumping when crowded for room between E GENERATION and MEHBOOB which shifted in.

In this incident, MEHBOOB became unbalanced as a result of bumping VEGA RHYTHM.

TANG TREASURE got its head up on jumping when being steadied to obtain cover.

DEMONS ROCK and HAPPY GOOD GUYS bumped at the start.

After this, DEMONS ROCK was steadied to obtain cover.

When being ridden along in the early stages, SAM'S LOVE shifted out a short distance after the start and made contact with PRAWN YEAH YEAH.

TANG TREASURE travelled keenly for some distance after the 900 Metres when being steadied to obtain cover.

Then making the turn after the 600 Metres, TANG TREASURE was bumped by MEHBOOB and shifted out, resulting in DEMONS ROCK being hampered and taken wider.

Passing the 300 Metres, MEHBOOB was shifted out away from the heels of HAPPY GOOD GUYS to obtain clear running.

PRAWN YEAH YEAH was held up for clear running from after the 250 Metres until approaching the winning post and consequently was not able to be properly tested.

Approaching the 100 Metres, WINNING WAYS raced tight outside MEHBOOB.

SAM'S LOVE had difficulty obtaining clear running passing the 100 Metres and consequently was not ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

A veterinary inspection of BEST SMILE immediately following the race found that horse to be lame in its right front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, BEST SMILE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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

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

BEST SMILE, G UNIT and MEHBOOB were sent for sampling.
