Recap by phillip woo

Co-favourite Compassion Star made use of a good gate tracking the speed on the fence carrying a light weight to win going away 200m out. He had been racing well and had everything fall into place. Plunged late Wayfoong Charmer stayed on nicely following a handy run to grab second 50m out. He was suited by the step back in distance from a better draw but has the tools to win a race in this grade. Navas ran on steadily from midfield to just get the head down for a placing. He's capable on his day at this level. Noble Desire flashed home to just miss a placing after peeling into the open following a one-off run behind midfield. All Times Grateful gradually faded working hard from a wide gate to eventually sit behind the leaders near the fence. He'll be a force to be reckoned with from a better draw. Punted late Focus lost a placing passing the 100m after pressing forward three-deep from a wide gate to eventually lead 750m out. He had an excuse.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (353) - SHING YIP HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

As the start was effected, EURO LAGO lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently was slow to begin.

NOBLE DESIRE shifted in at the start and bumped the hindquarters of COMPASSION STAR which became unbalanced.

COMPASSION STAR then became unbalanced and shifted out, resulting in NOBLE DESIRE and WAYFOONG CHARMER being crowded for room inside DIAMOND STAR which became badly unbalanced after being bumped by WAYFOONG CHARMER.

SPLENDID TIMING, which was being steadied to obtain cover, was shifted out away from the heels of DIAMOND STAR in consequence.

GENERAL CASTLEDALE and E MASTER were shifted across behind runners from wide barriers in the early stages.

Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, NAVAS and NOBLE DESIRE raced tight inside WAYFOONG CHARMER which got its head on the side and shifted in away from SPARKLING LIFE.

Near the 650 Metres, COMPASSION STAR was momentarily steadied away from the heels of FOCUS (T Piccone) which shifted in when not quite clear when crossing into the lead.

T Piccone was advised to ensure that he provides sufficient clearance when shifting ground.

Making the turn after the 550 Metres, NOBLE DESIRE got its head on the side and lay out.

Rounding the Home Turn, WAYFOONG CHARMER and NAVAS raced tight as NAVAS shifted to the outside of ALL TIMES GRATEFUL into clear running.

Approaching the 200 Metres, E MASTER and SPARKLING LIFE bumped.

EURO LAGO lay in under pressure in the Straight.

For the majority of the race, SPARKLING LIFE travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of E MASTER immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, E MASTER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of DIAMOND STAR and SPARKLING LIFE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

COMPASSION STAR and WAYFOONG CHARMER were sent for sampling.
