Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed Gift Of Lifeline came on strongly along the inside to overhaul Fast Pace 60m out after a patient ride fourth last to notch a fifth career win. He has good form over this Valley trip and was suited by the strong pace. Early favourite Smoothies finished well near the outside to grab second on the wire after getting shuffled back to midfield rounding the final bend. He's a winner waiting to happen with seconds in back-to-back runs. Fast Pace kept on very well despite getting pestered for the front 600m out by Chevalier Prince leading from a wide gate. He's had a solid campaign and clearly has another win coming if he can draw a gate. Veteran Surrealism came up one-paced after a box-seat run. He proved a near win last start was not a fluke. Right Honourable came from near last to pick up a minor cheque. He was set a harder task carrying more weight following back-to-back wins. Smiling City weakened over the final 100m after chasing the speed one-off from a wide draw. He needs to draw a gate. Chevalier Prince's midrace move to challenge for the lead 600m out didn't pan out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (592) - FOUNTAIN PALM HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Meters

MR ALDAN shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of FANTASTIC SHOW.

PRIME MINISTER was crowded for room on jumping between RIGHT HONOURABLE and FAST PACE, both of which shifted ground.

After this, from wide barriers, RIGHT HONOURABLE and PRIME MINISTER were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Throughout the race, FANTASTIC SHOW travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, J Moreira (CHEVALIER PRINCE) stated that on entering the Back Straight the tempo of the race steadied up and at this stage he was racing three wide following FANTASTIC SHOW which he felt would not be able to take him into the race.

He said when the tempo slowed, he elected to improve his position around FANTASTIC SHOW and had intended to obtain a position outside SMILING CITY forward of FANTASTIC SHOW.

He said when improving past FANTASTIC SHOW, CHEVALIER PRINCE had sufficient momentum to be able to continue forward of SMILING CITY and therefore he elected to allow his mount to obtain that running and sit outside the lead.

He added after steadying CHEVALIER PRINCE outside FAST PACE, CHEVALIER PRINCE came under pressure passing the 500 Metres and after laying out rounding the Home Turn then gave ground in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of CHEVALIER PRINCE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FAST PACE, GIFT OF LIFELINE and SMOOTHIES were sent for sampling.
