Recap by phillip woo

Metrevelli travelled worse than midfield and on the rails, straightened four deep, switched off heels into the clear at the 250m and let down nicely to take control 20m out with good market support. Rocket Proud settled fifth and two deep, turned the final bend four wide, worked to a narrow lead at the 100m and found the winner too good. He can win at this level. Thanksgiving settled three back and on the rails, straightened three deep, pushed into the clear five wide at the 100m and overhauled Gorgeous Life 50m out for a placing. Sparkling swung the final bend with three wider out and finished up well to snare a First-4 spot in the final bound. Favourite Gorgeous Life was caught three deep without cover near the speed and was running on empty in the final 50m. Dragon Choice dictated the running along the inside and was stopping 250m out.

Before being allowed to race again, SUN DRAGON will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

MERACUS was crowded for room at the start between EPATANT and THANKSGIVING which got its head on the side and shifted out.

FULL VALUE was steadied shortly after the start when crowded for room between ROCKET PROUD and GORGEOUS LIFE which, after initially being taken in by DRAGON CHOICE, then shifted in of its own accord after becoming unbalanced.

From wide barriers, NEWSWIRE TOO, GOOD JOB and CHINA DRAGON were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the 800 Metres and again near the 700 Metres, GOOD JOB was steadied away from the heels of CHINA DRAGON.

Passing the 200 Metres, THANKSGIVING was shifted out after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of ROCKET PROUD when held up for clear running behind that horse.

Near the 150 Metres, ROCKET PROUD shifted in and bumped GORGEOUS LIFE.

Throughout the race, GORGEOUS LIFE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of NEWSWIRE TOO, A Suborics stated that his mount travelled strongly until rounding the Home Turn at which point it came under pressure.

He said NEWSWIRE TOO did not quicken at all today and after being ridden in a similar manner in the Straight as it was at its last start when successful, NEWSWIRE TOO was disappointing in its failure to respond to his riding.
