Recap by phillip woo

Firming late to jump favourite, Quantum Power settled in fifth and two deep with cover, swung the final bend five wide and overpowered early public-choice Royal Doctor 60m out for an overdue win with a switch to the dirt. Royal Doctor slotted outside the leader Rumba King from a wide gate, assumed the lead 250m out and kept on gamely, despite the rise in weight. Well-punted late, Rumba King cleared from gate seven to dictate the running, straightened narrowly on top and gave way over the final 100m. Smart Kids settled behind midfield and two deep, swung the final bend six wide and ran on well to fill the frame in fourth. Sunny Fay travelled on the rails in fourth, cornered in four deep and kept on one-paced without threatening. Dream Builder made his run at the rear and ran on OK for his new trainer. Century Super Star settled midfield and on the rails, straightened a bit short of room and kept on evenly. Master Rio settled behind midfield and three deep to the outside of Smart Kids, hit the final bend with two wider out and never got in to the race.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (320) - COWDRAY PARK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters QUANTUM POWER was crowded for room at the start between CENTURY SUPER STAR and SMART KIDS.

From the outside barrier, DREAM BUILDER was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1100 Metres, SMART KIDS was steadied away from the heels of QUANTUM POWER which shifted out.

Near the 500 Metres, CHATER DCAT was steadied away from the heels of CENTURY SUPER STAR.

Near the 100 Metres, ROYAL DOCTOR got its head on the side and shifted out.

Throughout the race, NEEDLES AND THREAD and CLYDESIDER travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of MASTER RIO, O Doleuze stated that his mount normally travels well in the early stages.

He said today however that he had to make considerable use of MASTER RIO in the early stages to have it obtain a forward position, however, despite his efforts MASTER RIO was obliged to race further back in the field than had been intended.

He added after the 1000 Metres he shifted MASTER RIO across to follow the eventual winner, QUANTUM POWER, however, MASTER RIO travelled only fairly and when QUANTUM POWER quickened after the 500 Metres MASTER RIO did not show a similar turn of foot.

He said he placed MASTER RIO under pressure in the Straight, however, the horse did not respond to his riding and was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race.

When questioned regarding the performance of LOADS OF JOY, Z Purton stated that he had been riding the horse in some of its work in the lead up to todays race and, in his opinion, this work had only been fair.

He said in the early stages LOADS OF JOY did not show its customary early speed and as he would have been obliged to ride the horse along to maintain the lead, he elected to allow RUMBA KING to cross.

He said LOADS OF JOY travelled only fairly throughout the race and came under pressure rounding the Home Turn.

He said after this LOADS OF JOY was disappointing.

A veterinary inspection of MASTER RIO and LOADS OF JOY after the race did not show any significant findings.

QUANTUM POWER and ROYAL DOCTOR were sent for sampling.
