Recap by phillip woo

Medallist settled nicely one-out, one-back, cruised to the lead three deep at the 300m and drew clear for a convincing first win with a step up in trip. He remains one to follow. Silver Blaze eventually settled at the rear of the field from the widest gate, swung the final bend widest out and was finishing best of all to be clear second in a huge effort off a long layoff with health issues. Istide settled three back and one-off the fence, rounded the final bend five wide and stayed on well for a placing. Theheroinmyheart settled three back and on the rails, straightened four deep and whacked away with a step up in trip. Perfect Ten made his run second from the rear and hit the final bend with one wider out and ran on OK. Spicy Siam settled behind midfield and on the rails, straightened three deep and kept on evenly at his second start with a step up to the mile. Favourite Ekraar Emperor had to work to lead from gate 11, straightened narrowly on top from Seasons Crest, was headed 300m out and struggling 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (357) - RUSSIAN PEARL HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1600 Meters WINNING MASCOT was withdrawn on 26.1.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore).

Before being allowed to race again, WINNING MASCOT will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

On arrival at the holding area after being transported from the Olympic stable, it was noted that SILVER BLAZE had lost its right hind plate.

This plate was refitted.

SILVER BLAZE was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

T Clark (THEHEROINMYHEART) reported that his saddle shifted back at the start.

SPICY SIAM was crowded for room at the start between ISTIDE and PATRIOCH, both of which shifted ground.

From the outside barrier, SILVER BLAZE was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early and middle stages, KOENIGSBERG travelled wide and without cover.

After the 1000 Metres, ELEPHANT CHEERS raced in restricted room between SPICY SIAM and KOENIGSBERG which shifted in.

In this incident, ELEPHANT CHEERS bumped SPICY SIAM, causing that horse to become unbalanced.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of EKRAAR EMPEROR, M Chadwick stated that he was able to cross to the lead on EKRAAR EMPEROR without having to make any use of the horse.

He said after obtaining the lead, EKRAAR EMPEROR was able to dictate the race at its own tempo, however, the horse came under pressure immediately upon straightening and despite being ridden along did not respond to his riding and was disappointing.

He added that although EKRAAR EMPEROR was not able to obtain a soft lead at its most recent start when another runner improved to its outside, nonetheless, in his opinion, the horse was also disappointing at that start in the manner in which it gave ground in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of EKRAAR EMPEROR after the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that PATRIOCH had bled from both nostrils.

EKRAAR EMPEROR, MEDALLIST and SILVER BLAZE were sent for sampling.
