Recap by phillip woo

Beauty Spark took the short route home to claim victory 80m out after enjoying a lovely run better than midfield on the fence. Favourite Californiadeepshot came on well from midfield to grab second in deep stretch. He's clearly building towards another win after winning his debut three runs back. Shouson was touched off late for second after a boxseat run. It was another honest effort. Punted late Victory In Hand was swamped late for a placing after straightening three lengths on top. He has found things a touch harder in his past three runs in this grade. Wind N Grass ran on late near the inside to finish a nonthreatening fifth following a patient ride third from the back. He might need a longer trip now. Whiskey Neat made some ground without menacing from the back. It was a better performance with a switch to the Valley. Most Beautiful came up flat with every chance in midfield. Age has got the better of him this season.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (579) - CYPRESS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

SHINING GEM was withdrawn on 14.4.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter BIG BANG BONG (M L Yeung).

Before being allowed to race again, SHINING GEM will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

VICTORY IN HAND shifted in abruptly at the start and bumped CHARIZARD.

CHIKORITA began only fairly and then shortly after the start was shifted across behind runners.

CALIFORNIADEEPSHOT began only fairly and then, despite being ridden along for some distance in the early stages, was slow to muster speed.

From the outside barriers, BIG BANG BONG and WHISKEY NEAT were steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Making the turn near the 1050 Metres, HOME MADE (M F Poon) was checked after shifting out across the heels of WIND N GRASS.

M F Poon reported that after this incident HOME MADE lay out during the race.

WHISKEY NEAT travelled wide and without cover until near the 600 Metres.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, SHOUSON raced tight inside VERY RICH MAN which got its head on the side and lay in, requiring its rider to direct VERY RICH MAN out on a number of occasions to relieve the tightening to SHOUSON.

After the 300 Metres, VERY RICH MAN was shifted out away from the heels of SHOUSON (Z Purton) which shifted out to obtain clear running to the outside of VICTORY IN HAND.

Z Purton was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

A veterinary inspection of MOST BEAUTIFUL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BEAUTY SPARK and CALIFORNIADEEPSHOT were sent for sampling.
