Recap by phillip woo

Moneymaker settled in midfield and just off the rails, shifted into the clear four deep at the 400m and wore down late-fancied Happy Index in the shadows of the post for a welcome win after four earlier placings. Happy Index went straight to the lead from gate nine, rounded the final bend a length on top and kept on gamely to finish a clear second. Enduring made his run third from the rear and two deep, cornered in five wide, barged his way into the clear with two wider out at the 350m and was doing his best work late to just grab third ahead of favourite Fionn's Treasure in an encouraging debut performance. Fionn's Treasure was sitting prominent on the speed and three deep, copped a check, circled the final bend six wide and kept on late to just miss a placing. He had clear excuses and will improve further from this run. Forest Star had trouble staying in touch with the field, had a ton of work ahead of him while switching widest out at the 400m and was closing the gap to miss out on a placing. Rainbow Fighter moved up to settle fourth from the rear and two deep after breaking awkwardly, rallied four wide upon straightening and kept on well in a pleasing debut. Absolute Fantasy made his run third from the rear and along the inside, stayed one or two off the fence upon straightening and was running on late.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (433) - CITIBANK INSURANCE HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters JUST FOLLOW ME shifted out at the start and hampered FOREST STAR RAINBOW FIGHTER was slow to begin.

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

After being taken across behind runners from a wide barrier in the early stages, SYDNEY POWER proved difficult to settle approaching and passing the 1000 Metres.

After the 1000 Metres, ABSOLUTE FANTASY was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY CERAMIBO.

Making the turn near the 850 Metres, FIONNS TREASURE was severely checked when crowded for room between SHAHJEE which was racing tight to the inside of GIFT IS GIFT and AEROSA which, after being bumped by JUST FOLLOW ME, then got its head on the side and shifted out.

As there was no rider error associated with this incident, no further action was taken.

After the 700 Metres, GREEN ZONE and FIONNS TREASURE raced tight between MONEYMAKER and SHAHJEE.

Near the 650 Metres, FIONNS TREASURE was steadied away from the heels of GIFT IS GIFT.

Near the 500 Metres, GREEN ZONE and FIONNS TREASURE bumped on a number of occasions as FIONNS TREASURE attempted to maintain its position inside SHAHJEE.

GREEN ZONE had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 200 Metres was steadied when disappointed for a run between SHAHJEE which shifted in when giving ground and RAINBOW FIGHTER which shifted out slightly.

Near the 350 Metres, ENDURING (T Clark) shifted out to obtain clear running and in doing so bumped SYDNEY POWER which became unbalanced.

T Clark was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in future.

Passing the 300 Metres, ABSOLUTE FANTASY was shifted to the inside of RAINBOW FIGHTER to obtain clear running.

Throughout the race, GIFT IS GIFT and SHAHJEE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of AEROSA, O Doleuze stated that the horse, which was wearing blinkers for the first time today, raced greenly throughout the race.

He said making the first turn AEROSA shifted ground outwards and then in the early part of the Straight shifted in when GIFT IS GIFT improved to its outside.

He said despite being ridden along AEROSA was reluctant to stretch out and was disappointing in the manner in which it gave ground in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of GIFT IS GIFT and AEROSA after the race did not show any significant findings.

FIONNS TREASURE, MONEYMAKER and HAPPY INDEX were sent for sampling.
