Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed Showina punched the breeze in third early on from a wide gate, assumed the lead 900m out and kept finding to score a maiden win at his third start. It was not a major surprise after going close in his opening two career efforts. Harrier Jet ran on well from behind midfield to easily take second. It was a return to form following a downgrade with his favourite rider back on board. Sun Of Makfi ran on very well to fill a placing carrying a light weight after travelling five back and one off the fence. He continues to knock on the door but requires a longer trip. Noble Desire got going late to fill the frame after biding his time towards the rear from a middle draw. He has been knocking on the door all season long but can't strike gold. Glenealy Generals came up one-paced after settling box-seat from the 900m. He rarely produces a bad run but is limited. E Honey made good ground late without menacing from a detached position. He has shown flashes of potential in his six starts. You can forget the run of Inno Legend, who was strung up in traffic until the 150m travelling midfield on the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (588) - LARCH HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

RAGING BLAZE shifted in at the start and bumped INNO LEGEND.

SHOWINA began very awkwardly, resulting in its rider becoming unbalanced.

SHOWINA then shifted in abruptly despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in EXUBERANT being crowded for room and taken in onto E HONEY which was checked when crowded for room between EXUBERANT and PRINCE OF BON BON which shifted out.

In this incident, PRINCE OF BON BON shifted out further after becoming unbalanced as a result of being bumped on the hindquarters by E HONEY.

After this, from a wide barrier, E HONEY was shifted across behind runners.

After being crossed by GLENEALY GENERALS approaching the 1000 Metres, RAGING BLAZE commenced to prove very difficult to settle and shifted out abruptly away from the heels of that horse and in doing so was checked away from the heels of PRINCE OF BON BON.

HARRIER JET, which was racing outside RAGING BLAZE, was shifted out away from that horse in consequence.

As HARRIER JET was steadied after the 1000 Metres, NOBLE DESIRE, which was following HARRIER JET, was awkwardly placed behind that horse for some distance.

HARRIER JET then travelled without cover until near the 500 Metres.

EXUBERANT was left racing wide and without cover passing the 1000 Metres and passing the 650 Metres was ridden along to improve its position, however, continued to race wide and without cover.

After the 300 Metres, INNO LEGEND raced tight inside RAGING BLAZE which got its head on the side and lay in.

Then passing the 200 Metres, INNO LEGEND again raced in restricted room inside RAGING BLAZE which again got its head on the side and lay in after racing in restricted room between GLENEALY GENERALS and PRINCE OF BON BON, both of which shifted ground.

After this, RAGING BLAZE was directed to the outside of PRINCE OF BON BON.

After the 250 Metres, SUN OF MAKFI and NOBLE DESIRE raced tight.

When questioned, A Badel stated that, in his opinion, the performance of INNO LEGEND tonight was not as disappointing as it first appeared.

He said after obtaining a trailing position behind GLENEALY GENERALS in the early stages, GLENEALY GENERALS then handed up the lead to SHOWINA along the Back Straight which resulted in INNO LEGEND racing slightly further back in the field than had been anticipated.

He said INNO LEGEND did not appear comfortable racing amongst horses and was reluctant to stretch out in the Straight when racing in restricted room inside RAGING BLAZE.

He said whilst INNO LEGEND did not finish off the race as he anticipated, he believed that there were some circumstances in tonight's race which resulted in the horse not being able to close off.

A veterinary inspection of INNO LEGEND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SHOWINA and HARRIER JET were sent for sampling.
