Recap by phillip woo

Sensationally plunged in the betting, Berio sat outside the leader Bould Mover in second from a wide gate, drew level at the 450m, went two lengths clear at the 200m and held off the late-surge of early favourite Finezza for the win off a light weight. Finezza bided his time third from the rear and three deep, swung the final bend widest out and was rocketing home to make it tight at the finish, nailing Dan Excel in the dying stages for second. Dan Excel was posted three deep in midfield, rounded the final bend five wide and stayed on well to make it interesting in an encouraging debut performance. Carthage eventually settled at the rear and three deep, was still at the tail upon straightening with one wider out and ran on nicely to finish a distant fourth. Flying Supreme was rated in fifth and one off the fence, worked to second three deep at the 200m and run peaked 100m out. Turf Express was a prominent fourth in the run two-to-three deep, cornered in four wide and kept away one-paced over the last 100m. Euro Swiftly settled between runners third or fourth from the rear, rounded the final bend with three wider out and made some early ground before coming up empty 200m out with some late-market support. Dominant settled behind midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend four deep and failed to let down under an aggressive ride. Cheers Joy inched forward to hold the box-seat at the 1,000m, straightened one off the fence and found little over the last 250m in a surprisingly flat debut performance. Bould Mover went a decent clip on the speed and was stopping badly in the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (380) - AMBER HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1600 Meters DOMINANT, which was leaning on the inside of its barrier stall, began very awkwardly and for a short distance after the start raced tight between FINEZZA and DAN EXCEL, both of which shifted ground.

CARTHAGE and TRAVEL BRAND were slow to begin.

After the 1400 Metres, TURF EXPRESS was shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING SUPREME.

After this, TURF EXPRESS travelled wide and without cover until near the 800 Metres.

After TURF EXPRESS shifted in, DAN EXCEL was left racing wide and without cover.

For some distance approaching and passing the 1200 Metres, DOMINANT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING SUPREME.

Near the 1100 Metres, FINEZZA got its head up and shifted out away from the heels of DAN EXCEL when proving difficult to settle.

When FINEZZA shifted out, CARTHAGE was hampered.

Near the 850 Metres, DOMINANT, which continued to be awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING SUPREME, was steadied after momentarily improving to the inside of that horses heels where there was insufficient room.

Also near the 850 Metres, TRAVEL BRAND was steadied away from the heels of CHEERS JOY.

For some distance approaching the 300 Metres, THE UNTOUCHABLELAD was held up for clear running behind CHEERS JOY which was giving ground.

Close to the finishing line, MARK UP was steadied away from the heels of CARTHAGE which got its head on the side and shifted in.

Because of this, MARK UP was not able to be ridden out to the end of the race as it normally would be.

When questioned, M Guyon stated that he had been instructed to ride AMITYSHIP positively in the early stages, from barrier 13, and to place the horse in 4th or 5th position if possible.

He said after beginning awkwardly AMITYSHIP was beaten for speed in the early stages and rather than make too much use of the horse he elected to shift AMITYSHIP across in the hope of obtaining cover behind TURF EXPRESS.

He said however that after the 1400 Metres he had to steady away from the heels of that horse when TURF EXPRESS shifted out.

He added after this AMITYSHIP was left racing wide and without cover throughout the remainder of the race and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of CHEERS JOY, DOMINANT and EURO SWIFTLY after the race did not show any significant findings.

BERIO and FINEZZA were sent for sampling.
