Recap by phillip woo

Master Gunner settled in midfield and on the fence, straightened three deep in a bit of a jam, found a gap at the 100m to hit the lead 30m out and kept on well for the win from a biased inside draw on the evening. Star Of Fame travelled third from the rear along the rails, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished strongly to just snare second in a blanket for the minors with late-market support. Yue Lue Treasure hit the line with plenty of purpose to just miss second by a stride. Favourite Moneymaker enjoyed a soft run in fifth along the fence behind the Loads Of Joy and Master Rio, kept to the rails upon straightening and was pipped by a nose for a placing. Many Gains tracked the leaders in third and one off the fence after breaking alertly, straightened four deep and kept on evenly over the last 100m. Island Super was unlucky not to have gone close to placing when held-up for a clear shot behind Moneymaker with a good dash late. Well-punted late, Master Rio hit the lead 250m out and was a beaten runner at the 120m. Finn Maccool travelled three deep ahead of midfield and was struggling with two wider out at the 150m. Surfer Boy was handy in the run three or four deep with cover, cornered in five deep, poked his head in front at the 200m and was stopping over the final 100m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (070) - D'AGUILAR PEAK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters FINN MACCOOL was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, ANCIENT KINGDOM and ISLAND SUPER were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, STAR OF FAME was steadied when crowded for room between MASTER GUNNER and MY HOME TOWN which was taken in by MONEYMAKER which shifted in despite the efforts of its rider.

In this incident, MASTER GUNNER became unbalanced when bumped by STAR OF FAME.

After being steadied to obtain a position with cover approaching the 1000 Metres, SURFER BOY was left racing wide and without cover when MY HOME TOWN improved its position to its inside after the 1000 Metres.

Then after the 700 Metres, SURFER BOY remained racing wide and without cover.

Rounding the Home Turn, STAR OF FAME was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FINN MACCOOL when being shifted to the outside of that horse.

ISLAND SUPER had difficulty obtaining clear running over the final 200 Metres.

Near the 150 Metres, MANY GAINS was hampered by SURFER BOY which shifted in when commencing to give ground.

When being corrected, SURFER BOY shifted out, resulting in ANCIENT KINGDOM being checked out away from the heels of that horse.

In the Straight, MY HOME TOWN got its head on the side and lay out.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that ISLAND SUPER had lost its left front plate.

A veterinary inspection of FINN MACCOOL after the race revealed the horse to have blood at the right nostril, however, an endoscopic examination confirmed that FINN MACCOOL had not bled.

MONEYMAKER, MASTER GUNNER and STAR OF FAME were sent for sampling.
