Recap by phillip woo

Methane kept on gamely after rushing to the lead 250m out following a well-executed run one-off in midfield from a tricky gate. He had shown some promise and was suited by the step up in distance. Early favourite Let's Take It Easy closed well after settling just behind the winner in the run. He's back on track in recent runs and can win shortly. Harrier Jet just got up for third following a one-out, one-back run. He's well rated. Enjoy Life sustained a move from near the back at the 450m to just miss a placing. Supreme Plus kept on for a minor cheque without threatening the placegetters following a boxseat run. Prefer him in Class Five. Plunged to jump favourite Polymer Luck didn't find much after stalking the genuine pace of Circuit Number One to his outside. He doesn't have much upside off his current mark after a last-start win. Villa Fionn was badly held up behind the tiring leaders until the 100m when trying to wind up from behind midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (393) - THE CRAIGENGOWER CRICKET CLUB CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 4 - 1650Meters

PLAY WISE shifted in at the start and bumped LET'S TAKE IT EASY.

After this, PLAY WISE, from a wide barrier, was shifted across behind runners.

CITY LEGEND shifted out at the start and bumped ENJOY LIFE.

From the outside barriers, CITY LEGEND, ENJOY LIFE and PERFECT TO PLAY were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, SUPREME PLUS became unbalanced when crowded for room between CIRCUIT NUMBER ONE and HARRIET JET which initially got its head on the side and shifted in away from POLYMER LUCK and then was taken in marginally by that horse.

When taken in by POLYMER LUCK, HARRIER JET was bumped and taken in which resulted in SUPREME PLUS being further crowded for room.

POLYMER LUCK was then shifted out to relieve the tightening to SUPREME PLUS and HARRIER JET.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, PERFECT TO PLAY shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of PLAY WISE.

When being shifted to the inside of SUPREME PLUS passing the 250 Metres, CITY LEGEND raced tight inside the heels of that horse which shifted in, resulting in CITY LEGEND shifting in and bumping VILLA FIONN near the 200 Metres which was then awkwardly placed close to the heels of CIRCUIT NUMBER ONE.

VILLA FIONN and CITY LEGEND consequently raced tight when attempting to improve between SUPREME PLUS and CIRCUIT NUMBER ONE which near the 150 Metres got its head on the side and lay out when commencing to give ground.

This resulted in VILLA FIONN racing in restricted room between CIRCUIT NUMBER ONE and CITY LEGEND which was awkwardly placed close to the heels of POLYMER LUCK.

Over the concluding stages, VILLA FIONN was then awkwardly placed close to the heels of POLYMER LUCK and consequently was not able to be fully tested.

PLAY WISE had difficulty obtaining clear running from the 250 Metres until passing the 200 Metres.

Close to the finishing line, PLAY WISE raced tight outside SUPREME PLUS.

A veterinary inspection of CIRCUIT NUMBER ONE 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 POLYMER LUCK immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

POLYMER LUCK, METHANE and LET'S TAKE IT EASY were sent for sampling.
