Recap by phillip woo

Gallant Crown came with a bold move to collar Tempest Express 20m out from behind midfield for an upset win. He proved a last start third over this trip was not a fluke. Tempest Express did everything right but get the win after moving to the front 100m out following a rails run in midfield. It was his best run in a while with a return to blinkers. Late-fancied Encountered kept on well for a placing after a pace-stalking run. He was able to build on an upset win on closing day. Circuit Stellar grudgingly gave way after straightening a length on top dictating the run from a middle draw. He rarely produces a bad run. Punted late Beauty Champ produced an even effort travelling one-off better than midfield. He's still acclimatising but is heading in the right direction. Captain Win ran on without menacing near the outside after making his run third last from a wide draw. Lucky Gold just held his ground after a prominent run one off the fence. Prefer him in Class Four. Lightning Bolt made up heaps of ground late settling last from the widest gate. It was a positive performance with a return to the turf and step up to 1,400m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (10) - SUNSET PEAK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Meters

BEAUTY CHAMP shifted out at the start and bumped GALLANT CROWN which in turn shifted out, resulting in PRECISE EXPRESS striking the heels of GALLANT CROWN and stumbling shortly after the start.

ENCOUNTERED shifted out on jumping and inconvenienced NEVER TOO SOON.

After this, NEVER TOO SOON was shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

STORM LEGEND and TEXAS MOON bumped at the start.

TEXAS MOON, CAPTAIN WIN and LIGHTNING BOLT were all steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover from wide barriers.

After travelling a short distance, TEMPEST EXPRESS was momentarily crowded for room inside HAPPY DAILY which was bumped by BEAUTY CHAMP which shifted in when proving difficult to settle.

After the 1000 Metres, STORM LEGEND was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 850 Metres, KING'S CAPITAL was awkwardly placed behind GALLANT CROWN.

Passing the 500 Metres, KING'S CAPITAL raced tight outside NEVER TOO SOON which improved to be racing outside PRECISE EXPRESS.

Passing the 350 Metres, NEVER TOO SOON and PRECISE EXPRESS bumped.

Approaching the 150 Metres, TEMPEST EXPRESS shifted in and bumped ENCOUNTERED.

TEMPEST EXPRESS was then directed out to relieve the crowding to ENCOUNTERED.

After the 100 Metres, KING'S CAPITAL was awkwardly placed inside the heels of CAPTAIN WIN which shifted in.

HAPPY DAILY was unable to obtain clear running at any stage of the Straight and because of this was not able to be tested.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of NEVER TOO SOON, Z Purton stated that his mount travelled strongly into the Home Straight and he anticipated that it would finish the race off well.

He said in the early part of the Straight he had some difficulty obtaining clear running and it was not until GALLANT CROWN quickened near the 300 Metres that he was able to obtain clear running.

He said after this NEVER TOO SOON did not quicken as it did at its most recent start last season when successful, however, he was of the opinion that the horse would benefit from today's race given that it did not barrier trial in the lead up to the race.

A veterinary inspection of NEVER TOO SOON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of PRECISE EXPRESS and TEXAS MOON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
