Recap by phillip woo

Punted late The Runner dashed nicely to get up in the shadows of the post for the win following a rail run behind midfield. He was able to add to a Class Four win in early May following two positive runs at this level. Favourite California Rad found one just too good after slotting one-off in midfield with cover from a wide gate. It was another solid run over this trip. High Rise Soldier dashed well when finally going through a gap between runners near the inside to snare a placing after getting shuffled back to have two behind him at the head of the straight in his initial Valley run. He's a winner waiting to happen. Well-backed late Flying Bonus kept on reasonably to hold a top-four spot after leading at a good pace from a low draw. He went a bit too hard in front. Loriz kept on onepaced after a one-off run in third with money coming for him late. He's earned a deserving rest after a busy but productive campaign. Le Terroir finished off reasonably well.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (825) - MIN FAT HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

LORIZ shifted in at the start and bumped BABY which in turn shifted in and made contact with TAKE WHAT YOU NEED.

LE TERROIR got its head up on jumping.

HIGH RISE SOLDIER began only fairly and then was checked shortly after the start when crowded for room between GOOD FOR YOU which was also hampered when taken in by CALIFORNIA RAD and SPEED VISION (Apprentice C Wong) which shifted out when being ridden along.

Apprentice Wong was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground at the start in similar circumstances.

From the outside barrier, LONDON LUCKYSTAR was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 900 Metres, LE TERROIR was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 900 Metres, THE RUNNER was steadied away from the heels of TAKE WHAT YOU NEED which was racing tight inside LORIZ which in turn was awkwardly placed inside SPEED VISION.

Passing the 700 Metres, HIGH RISE SOLDIER raced tight inside CHIKORITA which was awkwardly placed behind BABY.

After this, HIGH RISE SOLIDER continued to race tight inside CHIKORITA which improved to be racing tight inside the heels of BABY, causing both CHIKORITA and HIGH RISE SOLDIER to be crowded for room near the 500 Metres.

Approaching the 200 Metres, TAKE WHAT YOU NEED and HIGH RISE SOLDIER bumped as a result of TAKE WHAT YOU NEED shifting out marginally and HIGH RISE SOLDIER improving into tight running inside SPEED VISION.

Apprentice C L Chau (GOOD FOR YOU) was reminded of his obligation regarding using the whip on a horse out of contention.

After the race, CALIFORNIA RAD (K Teetan) was found to be marked.

K Teetan was fined the sum of $7,500.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into consideration that K Teetan had previously been penalized this season for a like offence.

A veterinary inspection of GOOD FOR YOU and BABY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of CHIKORITA 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, CHIKORITA will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

THE RUNNER and CALIFORNIA RAD were sent for sampling.
