Recap by phillip woo

Firming short-priced favourite, Fay Fay eventually crossed from gate 14 to settle worse than midfield and with cover two to three deep, hit the straight with one wider out, powered to the lead 100m out and came home with something up his sleeves. He remains one to follow. Fionn's Dragon bided his time second from the rear, swung the final bend widest out and finished off willingly to overcome Talley Close in the final 20m for second. Talley Close went a good clip on the speed, straightened nearly five lengths on top and was stopping inside the final 100m. Quantum Power travelled in midfield and on the rails, had no luck when straightening in a jam and finished off strongly when finding clear running 200m out. He can be forgiven for this run. Gene Power made his run third from the rear and two deep, straightened a length behind Fay Fay and was closing the gap before coming up one-paced 100m out. Costa Del Sol was posted deep three deep near the speed without cover, straightened four deep and only held his ground over the final 100m, while Diligent III saved ground in fourth, straightened with every chance near the inside and failed to quicken. Everybody Sings found a nice spot in midfield and one off the fence with cover, improved his position four wide entering the straight and was struggling 250m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (099) - SOIN D'EAU HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400 Meters DILIGENT III was slow to begin.

PERFECT CHEERS jumped awkwardly, shifted out and bumped TALLEY CLOSE.

From a wide barrier, FIONN'S DRAGON was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1100 Metres, QUANTUM POWER was awkwardly placed inside the heels of ALL FRIENDS which got its head on the side and shifted in.

After the 900 Metres, FIONN'S DRAGON proved very difficult to settle, got its head on the side and lay in towards the heels of GRAND DANCER.

Near the 600 Metres, ABSOLUTE FANTASY was steadied after racing in restricted room between ALL FRIENDS and COSTA DEL SOL.

After the 400 Metres, QUANTUM POWER was checked away from the heels of SUPER BROTHER when attempting a run between that horse and DILIGENT III where there was insufficient room.

After this, QUANTUM POWER had difficulty obtaining clear running until near the 200 Metres.

For some distance approaching the 200 Metres, SICHUAN LEGEND had difficulty obtaining clear running.

In the Straight, FIONN'S DRAGON got its head on the side and hung in.

Throughout the race, COSTA DEL SOL travelled wide and without cover.

Following the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on TALLEY CLOSE at the request of Trainer A T Millard.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that GRAND DANCER had lost its left front plate.

A veterinary inspection of EVERYBODY SINGS after the race did not show any significant findings.

FAY FAY and FIONN'S DRAGON were sent for sampling.
