Recap by phillip woo

Prosperity was well-rated on the front by Darren Beadman after clearing for the lead approaching the first bend, cornered nearly a length and a half on top and kept up a solid gallop to the line for the win with money coming on late. Suisse D'Or led early before enjoyed the sit in second and one off the fence approaching the first bend, ranged up on the leader at the 450m, straightened four deep and kept on well without threatening the winner. Great Show stayed to the inside upon straightening and made steady ground late to make it close for second. Winning Pal ran on all right to fill the frame in fourth. Perfect Ten made his run second from the rear and three deep after getting squeezed out at the start, was slightly short of room three-to-four deep at the 300m and made some ground late under the whip without threatening. Vilasol made his run third from the rear and two deep after fading back from a wide gate, was back to last at the 600m and made some ground three deep upon straightening. He's better over the mile at this level. Something Special made his run in midfield and two deep, straightened with two wider out and failed to quicken. Victory Ide Say was struggling four deep at the 200m. Bullish Power was a handy fourth in the run along the rails, straightened three deep and was coming back to the field at the 250m with some late-market support.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (290) - LAMBETH HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800 Meters SUISSE DOR began awkwardly.

PERFECT TEN was checked when crowded for room at the start between GREAT SHOW and PROSPERITY which shifted in.

Shortly after the start, WINNING PAL was steadied when crowded for room between TELECOM SUPREMO and SOMETHING SPECIAL, both of which shifted ground.

At the entrance to the Straight, PERFECT TEN raced tight between TELECOM SUPREMO and VILASOL which shifted out.

Then passing the 200 Metres, PERFECT TEN was shifted in away from the heels of BULLISH POWER which was commencing to give ground and in doing so bumped VILASOL.

When questioned, G Cheyne stated that he had been instructed to lead on SUISSE DOR, however, if another runner was intent on leading, he should hand up and allow that horse to cross.

He said in the early stages he allowed SUISSE DOR to obtain a forward position with PROSPERITY to its outside.

He said approaching the winning post on the first occasion he formed the view that PROSPERITY was being ridden along to obtain the lead and as he thought the tempo of the race at this stage was fair, he elected to allow PROSPERITY to cross to the lead before shifting to the outside of that horses heels near the 1200 Metres.

When questioned, M Guyon stated that he had been asked to allow MARK GOOD to begin and have the horse racing where it was comfortable.

He said it was explained to him that MARK GOOD is somewhat one-paced and if he was able to obtain a forward position on MARK GOOD without having to make too much use of the horse, he should do so.

He said after beginning well he allowed MARK GOOD to improve into a forward position, however, he was not able to shift in to a position closer than three wide with cover due to SUISSE DOR shifting to the outside of PROSPERITY near the 1200 Metres.

He added after travelling wide and without cover, MARK GOOD gave ground in the Straight.

The performance of MARK GOOD, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, MARK GOOD will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of PERFECT TEN after the race did not show any significant findings.

PERFECT TEN, PROSPERITY and SUISSE DOR were sent for sampling.
