Recap by phillip woo

Wonder Win got up when it counted most for a maiden win at his 12th start after peeling five deep rounding the final bend following a one-out, one-back run. It was his best run to date with a step-up to the 1,800m for the first time. Socket Elite was just denied after hitting the front close to home following a box-seat run. He proved a long-priced second last start was no fluke. Go Ballistic ran on well with one wider out to finish a close third following a one-off run behind midfield. He relished a return to the Valley for his second run in the grade. Favourite Treasure Chest grudgingly gave way after getting attacked for the lead first by President Star and then Salto Olimpico. He's a winner waiting to happen but likely over a shorter trip. Even Keel made some ground without menacing along the inside after recovering from a slow start to travel third from the rear. You Have My Word ran on down the outside without menacing after a patient ride.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (232) - O'BRIEN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Meters

ROCKET HAMMER began only fairly.

EVEN KEEL, which was standing awkwardly as the start was effected, lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently was slow to begin.

THE JOY OF GIVING shifted in at the start and brushed SALTO OLIMPICO.

From the outside barrier, STAR WIN was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Rounding the Home Turn, JOLLY FOREVER was inconvenienced by EVEN KEEL which shifted in away from the heels of SALTO OLIMPICO.

At the entrance to the Straight, PRESIDENT STAR and WONDER WIN brushed.

Passing the 300 Metres, EVEN KEEL was shifted in from behind SOCKET ELITE to obtain clear running.

Passing the 250 Metres, PRESIDENT STAR was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SALTO OLIMPICO which was awkwardly placed outside SOCKET ELITE.

When questioned, A Badel (GO BALLISTIC) stated that passing the 700 Metres he commenced to shift out to follow WONDER WIN as that horse improved into a three wide position.

He said he felt that at this time WONDER WIN was travelling well and would take him into the race.

He said as he shifted out behind WONDER WIN, that horse was taken wider by PRESIDENT STAR which shifted to the outside of SALTO OLIMPICO.

He said when WONDER WIN was taken into a four wide position, he intended to improve to the inside of that horse, however, EVEN KEEL improved its position quickly into tight running between GO BALLISTIC and JOLLY FOREVER and for this reason he was not able to shift in.

He added GO BALLISTIC was then left flat-footed passing the 500 Metres, however, after shifting to the outside of runners rounding the Home Turn finished off the race satisfactorily.

A veterinary inspection of JOLLY FOREVER and YOU HAVE MY WORD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

TREASURE CHEST, WONDER WIN and SOCKET ELITE were sent for sampling.
