Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Grand Elite travelled a handy fifth and one off the fence, rallied five wide upon straightening, quickly hit the front 150m out when asked for an effort at the 250m and out-dueled Ray's Favourite over the final 100m to open his win account at this seventh start. Punted late, Ray's Favourite was never better than three deep in the run with cover ahead of midfield from a wide gate, rounded the final bend six wide, drew nearly level at the 100m and couldn't scalp the winner. Go Lucky Go was patiently ridden third from the rear and three deep, moved to midfield at the 500m, pushed into the clear with two wider out at the 250m and finished up nicely to be a distant third off a big weight. Prince Of Sunshine out-battled Juggernaut to finish a distant fourth with a return to his preferred turf surface. Juggernaut sat second in the run behind the leader Fortune Bravo, drew level at the 600m, narrowly hit the front three deep at the 200m and was stopping 100m out. Home With Glory was doing his best work over the final 100m without menacing. Well-punted late, Mount Victory kept on one-paced over the final 100m with every opportunity. Happy Score made his run second from the rear and two deep, rounded the final bend widest out and only kept on passed beaten runners.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (604) - ARC DE TRIOMPHE CHAMPIONSHIPS HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650 Meters RAYS FAVOURITE, which was fractious in the barriers, lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and began awkwardly.

HEI HEI POSH was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, HAPPY SCORE and HOME WITH GLORY were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Soon after the start, CLASSIC AWARDS was steadied away from the heels of GRAND ELITE which shifted out.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, ALMIGHTY WINDPOWER got its head on the side and became unbalanced after shifting in towards the heels of JUGGERNAUT.

Throughout the race, ALMIGHTY WINDPOWER travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of HOME WITH GLORY and MOUNT VICTORY after the race did not show any significant findings.

GRAND ELITE and RAYS FAVOURITE were sent for sampling.
