Recap by phillip woo

In a blanket finish, Toronado Phantom dashed nicely down the outside to grab victory in the final few metres after a deep run towards the rear. He relished both a step back in distance and downgrade to ring up a second win from five starts. Punted late Shadow Runner was collared late after poking his head in front deep stretch following a prominent run on the fence. He had been building towards a win in his past two starts. Favourite My Ecstatic ran on steadily after a one-off trip in midfield to make it close on the wire. He'll be saluting shortly if he remains in the grade. Xponential was swamped late after moving to the front near the 200m sharing the lead outside Happy Tango 1,000m out from a wide draw. It was another honest performance. Bingo Bingo closed well to just miss the frame after a one-off trip behind midfield. He was able to produce a much better run ridden quietly after folding twice prompting the pace. Hercules came from last near the inside to finish in the mix. He can bob up at any moment. Well-backed Whiskey Neat gradually faded after easing out of an early tussle for the front to take the sit in third. Theta Hedge was restless at the gate and withdrawn by order of the stewards.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (311) - KINGSTON HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

To prevent an unreasonable delay to the start of the race, THETA HEDGE was withdrawn by order of the Stewards when it was unable to be loaded into the barriers.

Having regard to THETA HEDGE's behaviour when attempting to be loaded into the barriers, the Stewards ruled that prior to being permitted to race again, the horse must undergo a series of consecutive barrier trials.

SHADOW RUNNER began awkwardly.

TORONADO PHANTOM (J Moreira) shifted in abruptly at the start and bumped CALL ME LU which became unbalanced when awkwardly placed inside the heels of TORONADO PHANTOM.

After this, TORONADO PHANTOM was ridden along, however, when left racing very wide after the 1100 Metres was steadied to obtain cover towards the rear of the field.

When being steadied, TORONADO PHANTOM travelled keenly approaching the 1000 Metres.

After the race, J Moreira confirmed that it was intended for TORONADO PHANTOM to be ridden in about a midfield position, however, due to the circumstances of the race the horse was required to race further back in the field than had been anticipated to obtain cover.

BINGO BINGO shifted out at the start and was awkwardly placed inside the heels of WHISKEY NEAT which then shifted in, resulting in BINGO BINGO shifting in away from the heels of WHISKEY NEAT and bumping the hindquarters of MASTER AQUA.

MASTER AQUA was then eased away from the heels of WHISKEY NEAT which shifted in a short distance later.

From wide barriers, HERCULES and HAPPY GATHERING were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 1150 Metres, CALL ME LU was inconvenienced when crowded for room between TORONADO PHANTOM and BINGO BINGO which got its head on the side and lay out.

After the 900 Metres, HERCULES got its head on the side and lay in away from the heels of HAPPY GATHERING, resulting in HERCULES being very awkwardly placed close to the heels of CALL ME LU.

Then passing the 850 Metres, HERCULES was bumped by HAPPY GATHERING which shifted in before being bumped by TORONADO PHANTOM.

Approaching the 800 Metres, MASTER AQUA was left racing wide and without cover.

After the 700 Metres, WHISKEY NEAT, which was travelling strongly, was awkwardly placed behind XPONENTIAL.

After the 500 Metres, MASTER AQUA got its head on the side and lay out.

At the entrance to the Straight, HAPPY GATHERING raced tight outside HERCULES which improved to the outside of CALL ME LU.

Then near the 250 Metres, HERCULES and HAPPY GATHERING briefly raced tight.

Passing the 400 Metres, BINGO BINGO was awkwardly placed behind MY ECSTATIC.

HAPPY GATHERING, which was following, was inconvenienced in consequence.

HERCULES had some difficulty obtaining clear running approaching and passing the 100 Metres.

After the race, it was reported that HERCULES had sustained a laceration to the right hind leg.

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