Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, Rulership jumped well and enjoyed the box-seat run, darted to the front at the 400m and coasted home well in hand. Thumbs Up made his run third from the rear and two deep, turned the final bend with one wider out and finished off willingly to collar favourite Sweet Orange in the final few metres for second. Sweet Orange settled behind midfield and on the rails, straightened three deep and ran on nicely to lost second in the late stages. He's certainly versatile, but may be at his best over a mile. Zaidan travelled midfield and on the rails, cornered in two deep and kept on well to hold fourth in a big effort off the lowest rating. California Memory was running on late without menacing. He needs a break. Pure Champion travelled a handy fourth and one off the fence, straightened five wide and kept on one-paced over the final 200m. Irian settled behind midfield and three deep, cornered in with two wider out and made a lively bid until peaking 100m out. Fay Fay pressed forward to lead rounding the first bend from an outside gate and was stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (579) - THE AUDEMARS PIGUET QEII CUP - Group One - 2000 Meters RULERSHIP began awkwardly.

VISCOUNT NELSON was slow to begin.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, MR MEDICI and IRIAN raced tight as IRIAN was steadied away from the heels of RULERSHIP.

Passing the 1700 Metres, SWEET ORANGE momentarily raced tight inside ZAIDAN which shifted in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of RULERSHIP.

After the 200 Metres, SWEET ORANGE got its head on the side and shifted out under pressure.

Throughout the race, COLLECTION travelled wide and without cover and then in the Straight tailed out.

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

The performance of COLLECTION was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, COLLECTION will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of FAY FAY, D Whyte stated that his mount travelled well after obtaining an uncontested lead.

He said however that making the turn after the 800 Metres FAY FAY got on its wrong lead leg and shifted out.

He said he attempted to correct the horse, however, the more he endeavoured to shift the horse back to the fence, the more FAY FAY was inclined to fight against him.

He said for this reason after the 600 Metres he allowed FAY FAY to remain racing in a one-off position.

He added FAY FAY continued to lead with its wrong leg until well into the Home Straight.

He said after being placed under pressure, FAY FAY, whilst not giving ground abruptly, did not finish off the race and, in his opinion, had come to the end of its preparation.

A veterinary inspection of FAY FAY after the race revealed that the horse had sustained a cut to the inside of the left front heel.

A veterinary inspection of TREASURE BEACH after the race did not show any significant findings.

SWEET ORANGE, RULERSHIP and THUMBS UP were sent for sampling.
