PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Pearly Treasure stayed on a clear-cut C&D second behind the exciting Refined Treasure latest after hints of ability in three Valley sprints. He's ready to go one better. Goodluck Goodluck didn't stop all that badly after travelling keenly on the lead in his debut over this C&D and since strode out nicely in two trials. He's a likely improver. Nice Fandango has dropped off in his past two starts but had kept on to light the board in four prior 1,200m starts on both surfaces, including a dirt win, and remains a pace factor with the claim well utilised. Just Not Listening hasn't had luck in his past two after opening with a debut C&D fifth to Complacency and is drawn to be out of traffic on the far side. He can place.

TROUBLE IN RUNNING

MIGHTY MAVERICK (V150)near the 800M lost ground when momentarily crowded for room - Race 548 GOODLUCK GOODLUCK (B188)at the start shifted out and bumped a runner Throughout the race, particularly in the early and middle stages, raced greenly and hung out - Race 466 SHIMMER AND SHINE (B080)prior to the start when the front gates of the other stalls opened, became fractious and reared before a short time later momentarily sat down Was removed from the barriers and examined by the vet who said it was suitable to race Began only fairly In the early stages became detached from the field and subsequently finished at the rear of the field After the race was reported by the vet who said the horse to be lame in its left hind leg - Race 347 NICE FANDANGO (A209)after the race, rider stated that the middle stages of the race were run at a tempo which did not suit the horse and resulted in it being off the bridle earlier than he had hoped He said because of that the horse was then not able to finish off the race - Race 569 JUST NOT LISTENING (B192)near the 200M was checked when crowded for room - Race 548 PEARLY TREASURE (B117)at the start shifted out and bumped a runner - Race 521 CURLING LUXURY (A083)passing the 100M was taken out - Race 552 LUCKY KINGDOM (V420)when questioned, rider stated that he was asked to obtain a forward position from the outside barrier He said in accordance with the instructions he rode his mount along in the early stages and making the turn after the 1000M was racing in a three wide position He said he had intended to improve forward of a runner on entering the Back Straight, however, that runner was travelling strongly and he felt that to improve sufficiently to clear that runner and race outside the eventual winner, he would have had to make too much use of his mount which was having its first start six months ago He said that resulted in his mount racing in a three wide position without cover in the early and middle stages He added his mount came under heavy pressure after the 600M and then gave ground in the Straight - Race 560
