Recap by phillip woo

Post-time favourite Spontaneous took control 150m out after tracking the speed one-off the fence from a wide gate carrying top weight for a third win from four starts this term. Colonel found one too good after working to the lead along the inside 250m out following a box-seat run. He's always a chance over this Valley trip from a low draw. Moonluck closed off well to grab a placing in deep stretch after a rails run in midfield. He's heading in the right direction following placings in his past two of four starts. Ourgoldenrules was doing some nice work late down the centre of the track to just miss a placing after biding his time fourth last on the fence. He had shown a bit more spark in his past two starts. Good Shot ran on late without menacing settling four back and one-off the fence from a tricky gate. He wasn't suited by the muddling pace. Sunny And Gold was stopping 100m out after getting his own way in front. He might not be far off a bottom. Newcomer Shenron ran on without menacing after biding his time third last from an awkward gate as the early favourite. It wasn't a bad effort but he'll need more time and experience.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (587) - LARCH HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

CORDYCEPS TWO began awkwardly and lost ground on jumping.

VIVA CHEF shifted in at the start, resulting in COLONEL, OURGOLDENRULES and MOONLUCK all being hampered.

DAY DAY RICH shifted in at the start and bumped SHENRON.

After this, DAY DAY RICH was bumped by SHENRON which shifted out when being steadied to obtain cover.

SUNNY AND GOLD and GOOD SHOT bumped at the start.

From the outside barrier, MASTER ALBERT was shifted across behind runners to obtain cover in the early stages.

Near the 1050 Metres, COLONEL became unbalanced when being steadied to obtain cover behind SUNNY AND GOLD.

After the 900 Metres, OURGOLDENRULES commenced to travel very keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MOONLUCK.

OURGOLDENRULES, which continued to race keenly, was then checked away from the heels of MOONLUCK passing the 800 Metres.

Approaching the 300 Metres, THE MINT was shifted in away from the heels of GOOD SHOT which shifted out.

Passing the 200 Metres, VIVA CHEF momentarily raced in restricted room inside DAY DAY RICH which shifted in before being corrected by its rider.

Throughout the race, DAY DAY RICH travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding his riding of SUNNY AND GOLD after the 600 Metres, J Moreira stated that after leading, his mount changed stride passing the 600 Metres and then made the turn after the 600 Metres awkwardly and shifted out about half a horse.

He said he was able to shift SUNNY AND GOLD back towards the rail approaching the 500 Metres, however, after coming under pressure passing the 500 Metres, his mount again got its head on the side and lay out.

He said he turned the horse's head inwards and attempted to have SUNNY AND GOLD rail, however, it continued to lay out away from the rail and in particular lay out rounding the Home Turn which provided COLONEL the opportunity to improve to its inside rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight.

When SUNNY AND GOLD lay out after the 600 Metres, SPONTANEOUS was inconvenienced.

A veterinary inspection of SHENRON and VIVA CHEF immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SPONTANEOUS and COLONEL were sent for sampling.
