Recap by phillip woo

Wind N Grass let down brilliantly to grab victory 20m out after a patient ride third last from a wide gate. He was suited by the race tempo to build on a win last week despite carrying top weight but is likely to find things harder in Class Two now. Well-backed late, Kinda Cool found one too good after hitting the front from towards the rear 40m out. It was a good effort following a short break. Alcari came from last to overhaul raging favourite Capital Star for third. He can bob up now and then. Capital Star was running on empty 50m out after getting pestered for the lead from the jump by California Concord. He had a legitimate excuse. Stanley Park had his chance following a one-out, one-back run. The big weight took its toll in the end. Plunged late, What A Legend stayed on without menacing following a one-off run in midfield. He's a Class Four horse. Startz Hero ran on without menacing after cornering second from the rear from a wide draw. He is an improved runner and will be a force with Class Four looming large.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (496) - BAKER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

K C Leung (MERIDIAN GENIUS) was fined $2,000 for initially presenting himself to be weighed out with the incorrect saddle cloth number.

ALCARI began very awkwardly and from the outside barrier was then steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

SUPER POWER MAN shifted in at the start and hampered FIRST RESPONDER.

From wide barriers, STARZ HERO, WIND N GRASS and KINDA COOL were all steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

WHAT A LEGEND shifted out on jumping and bumped CAPITAL STAR.

Shortly after the start, MERIDIAN GENIUS was bumped by WHAT A LEGEND which shifted in away from CAPITAL STAR.

After the 950 Metres, FIRST RESPONDER and WHAT A LEGEND bumped.

At the entrance to the Straight, WIND N GRASS was shifted out away from the heels of KINDA COOL to obtain clear running.

Also at the entrance to the Straight, MERIDIAN GENIUS became badly unbalanced, resulting in its rider easing the horse down.

A veterinary inspection of MERIDIAN GENIUS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Having regard to the point of the track where this occurred, Club Officials again conducted an inspection of the relevant section which did not identify any areas of concern.

Nonetheless, given that two horses had become unbalanced at or around this point of the track this evening, minor remedial work was undertaken prior to the running of the next race.

Approaching the 200 Metres, KINDA COOL raced tight outside WHAT A LEGEND which shifted out.

After the race, J Moreira stated that, unlike at its last start when the horse was able to obtain an uncontested lead, CAPITAL STAR had CALIFORNIA CONCORD racing directly to its outside throughout the middle stages of tonight's race.

He said after quickening well in the early part of the Straight, it was only over the concluding stages that CAPITAL STAR's run ended and therefore he did not believe that the horse was disappointing in tonight's race.

A veterinary inspection of CAPITAL STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of FIRST RESPONDER immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

CAPITAL STAR, WIND N GRASS and KINDA COOL were sent for sampling.
