Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Transcendent won going away passing the 80m after barging his way into the open near the 200m following a rails run in midfield. The return to a claimer worked the oracle after putting the writing on the wall in his opening two starts this term. Winning Method ran on well for second after a one-off trip in midfield. He's always a chance over this course and distance and relished a return to Class Three. Classic Posh just outdashed newcomer Nearly Fine for third after a patient ride third last near the inside from a tricky gate. Nearly Fine ran on nicely down the outside to just miss a placing after settling second last from a wide draw. It was a fine performance first up and he'll appreciate a longer trip. Kinda Cool ran on steadily to pick up a pay slip after making his run two deep behind midfield. He'll likely come on for this run. Goodluck Goodluck peaked on his run 100m out following a prominent run one off the fence. He's not easy to get right. Plunged late Rhapsody failed to recover after copping a check along the inside near the 200m following a rail run four back. Colonel was stopping 100m out after easily finding the lead from gate eight. He couldn't back-up a near win last month.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (82) - GLOUCESTER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

On arrival at the Start, A Badel expressed concern regarding the action of JOLLY GOOD HEART.

JOLLY GOOD HEART was examined by the Veterinary Officer who, after the necessary consultations, said the horse was suitable to race.

JOLLY GOOD HEART lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and consequently began only fairly.

RHAPSODY began only fairly and then when being steadied to obtain cover in the early stages was steadied away from the heels of KINDA COOL after travelling a short distance which was taken out by WINNING METHOD.

NEARLY FINE shifted out at the start, resulting in AMARA WIN becoming unbalanced and then being crowded for room inside SMILING CITY.

This resulted in AMARA WIN losing ground.

AMARA WIN was then shifted across behind runners in the early stages from a wide barrier.

SMILING CITY lay out making the turn after the 1000 Metres and then after the 900 Metres was left racing wide and without cover.

After the 650 Metres, RHAPSODY commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed behind TRANSCENDENT.

Passing the 300 Metres, TRANSCENDENT got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of GOODLUCK GOODLUCK when being shifted out from behind that horse to obtain clear running.

After the 300 Metres, AMARA WIN was shifted to the outside of CLASSIC POSH after being disappointed for running between that horse and RHAPSODY.

Approaching the 200 Metres, TRANSCENDENT and WINNING METHOD bumped.

RHAPSODY was held up for clear running from approaching the 150 Metres until passing the 100 Metres.

After the race, L Ferraris reported that SPONTANEOUS would not relax outside the lead and, in his opinion, this accounted for the horse's failure to be able to close off the race over the concluding stages.

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

A veterinary inspection of SMILING CITY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

TRANSCENDENT and WINNING METHOD were sent for sampling.
