Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Ice Fire travelled behind midfield and on the rails, rallied four deep upon straightening and finished up nicely to take control 20m out for an overdue win after knocking on the door on a number of earlier mile efforts on this surface. Punted late, Gorgeous Ruler settled one off the fence and nearly two lengths off the leader M's Magic, rushed to the lead 150m out and found one too good in the end. Real Dragon was prominently ridden one off the fence in fourth, rounded the final bend four deep and was grinding away to nip M's Magic in the final bob in a blanket finish for third. M's Magic was bowling along on the front, cornered nearly two lengths on top after setting honest fractions and y gave way with some late-market support. Watch First made a nice late bid to make it close for a placing. Danesouth just kept whacking away, while Fantastisch and Sparkling were never a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (743) - PILKEM HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800 Meters BEST NOODLE was withdrawn on 7.7.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter GORGEOUS RULER (T H So).

Before being allowed to race again, BEST NOODLE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GORGEOUS RULER began awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, OREILLY MAGIC raced in restricted room between GORGEOUS RULER and EAST OCEAN.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, ALICE TOO failed to muster speed.

In the Straight, WATCH FIRST got its head on the side, hung in and proved difficult to ride.

Over the concluding stages, WATCH FIRST shifted in and raced tight outside REAL DRAGON.

Because of this, WATCH FIRST was not able to be fully tested.

Throughout the race, EAST OCEAN travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of EAST OCEAN after the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

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

The performances of EAST OCEAN and ALICE TOO, which both finished tailed out, were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, EAST OCEAN and ALICE TOO 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 SPARKLING, D Whyte stated that his mount travelled satisfactorily in the early stages but came under pressure to maintain its position travelling along the Back Straight.

He said after this, despite being ridden along, SPARKLING gave ground and was disappointing.

He did say that the track surface, following the rain which fell just prior to the race, may have resulted in the horse not performing as expected.

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

The performance of SPARKLING, a last start winner on the surface, was considered unacceptable.

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

ICE FIRE and GORGEOUS RULER were sent for sampling.
