Recap by phillip woo

Best-backed late, Zezao settled worse than midfield an on the stands side, revved up at the 500m, powered to the lead at the 150m and drew clear for a convincing win with a step back to the straight 1,000m. He's now won three of five after a stable change and appears to have room to head higher. Diamond Knight was handy near the centre of the course outside Lifeline Elite, narrowly hit the front at the 300m and kept on well to finish up a distant second. D Day Super travelled three off the stands side in fourth and kept plugging away. King Pendragon was prominently ridden along the stands side after jumping alertly, was under a hustling ride at the 400m and made a steady bid to finish just outside the placings. Lifeline Elite was asked for an effort under the left whip and made only mild progress off a big weight. He'll need apprentice relief. In a race with no true leader, Lucky Red emerged to lead at the 600m from an inside gate, was under pressure at the 300m and gave way over the final 150m. Favourite Magician Code failed to respond when asked to pick up at the 300m and was giving way over the final 100m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (498) - PORT SHELTER HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Meters After being loaded, HAPPY HOMING and LIVERPOOL LAD became fractious.

Before being allowed to race again, both horses will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

HAPPY WISDOM began awkwardly.

KIMBER FORTUNE and D DAY SUPER bumped at the start.

Shortly after the start, PETIT PRINCE was crowded for room between LIFELINE ELITE which began awkwardly and LIVERPOOL LAD which, after shifting out of its own accord, was then taken out by NOBLE SAIL.

In this incident, both PETIT PRINCE and LIVERPOOL LAD became unbalanced.

After the 100 Metres, LIFELINE ELITE shifted in and inconvenienced MAGICIAN CODE.

When questioned regarding his riding after the 600 Metres, B Prebble (KING PENDRAGON) stated that his mount, whilst racing outside HAPPY HOMING, travelled well on the outside fence.

He said that approaching the 500 Metres HAPPY HOMING commenced to give ground and at this time KING PENDRAGON came off the bridle and was inclined to shift in.

He said in an endeavour to have KING PENDRAGON race more competitively, he elected to shift his mount in towards D DAY SUPER in an attempt to elicit a response from KING PENDRAGON.

He said however that KING PENDRAGON did not quicken at this time and despite being ridden along gave ground over the final 200 Metres.

He added at the time of making his decision to shift in towards D DAY SUPER, he was unaware the eventual winner, ZEZAO was travelling behind him and that the sole reason for shifting KING PENDRAGON in at this time of the race was to have the horse race more competitively.

A veterinary inspection of MAGICIAN CODE after the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, MAGICIAN CODE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

MAGICIAN CODE, ZEZAO and DIAMOND KNIGHT were sent for sampling.
