Recap by phillip woo

Unicornbaby led from a wide draw, built a three-length advantage mid-straight and kept up a strong gallop to land a betting move. He struck a leader's track but had been knocking on the door in two prior starts. Late-fancied favourite Dragon Fortune rallied well to finish a clear-cut second after settling three wide with cover behind midfield from an outside draw. He seemed to enjoy a rise in trip. Zone D finished well to fill a placing after biding his time fourth last from a wide draw. He continues to race well after a win two starts back and might be crying out for a longer trip. Early favourite So Awesome had his chance yet again following a prominent run. He rarely produces a bad run but has proven costly for those seeking a win from him. Charge On got going late down the outside to pick up a minor cheque. He got too far back from a wide draw and requires a stronger pace. Speedy Fay Fay came up one-paced travelling one off the fence better than midfield. He requires a stronger rider. Superb Daddy ran on without threatening from the rear of the field. He gave them too much of a head start.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (601) - KENT HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Meters

FARM BUMPER and MERCURIAL began only fairly.

FOCUS shifted out at the start and bumped SUPERB DADDY which in turn bumped DRAGON FORTUNE, causing that horse to become unbalanced.

After this, SUPERB DADDY was steadied to obtain cover.

CHARGE ON bumped the hindquarters of ZONE D on jumping, resulting in ZONE D becoming unbalanced.

After this, from a wide barrier, CHARGE ON was shifted across behind runners.

From the outside barrier, RUN DES RUN was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

After travelling a short distance, AMAZING KNIGHT was crowded for room between SPEED FAY FAY and IRON KING which got its head on the side and lay in away from SO AWESOME.

Approaching the 900 Metres, FARM BUMPER was crowded for room inside SPEED FAY FAY which got its head on the side and lay in away from the heels of SO AWESOME.

AMAZING KNIGHT, which was following FARM BUMPER, was awkwardly placed behind that horse in consequence and shifted out, resulting in FLYING SWORD being crowded for room inside IRON KING.

Passing the 900 Metres, IRON KING was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 850 Metres, CHARGE ON shifted out away from the heels of ZONE D.

CHARGE ON then raced in restricted room between ZONE D which shifted out and RUN DES RUN near the 750 Metres.

Passing the 650 Metres, IRON KING and SPEED FAY FAY raced tight as SPEED FAY FAY attempted to improve outside SO AWESOME.

Then passing the 600 Metres, SPEED FAY FAY was steadied away from the heels of SO AWESOME when unable to improve outside that horse.

FARM BUMPER had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Passing the 400 Metres, AMAZING KNIGHT was steadied after racing in restricted room between SPEED FAY FAY and FARM BUMPER which, after shifting to the outside of FOCUS, then had difficulty obtaining clear running.
