Recap by phillip woo

Fortune Winner was given an uncontested lead, cornered in nearly two lengths on top and kept finding to score rather cozily. Plunged late, Absolute Fantasy sat on the back of the speed in second and one off the fence, straightened three deep and kept plugging away to maintain his position passed the line. Hammered late to nearly jump favourite, Noble De Best settled midfield and on the fence, peeled into the clear four deep upon straightening and stayed on well to be a clear third. Forgive And Forget made his run behind midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend six deep and made a steady bid late to edge Always Something for fourth. It was a decent effort in defeat, despite a switch to the city venue and step up to the mile and will be winning races next season. Always Something was patiently ridden at the rear and three deep from gate 12, swung the final bend widest out and was hitting the line with purpose to miss fourth in a bob of heads. Noble Deluxe settled second from the rear and along the inside, stayed to the fence upon straightening and made some progress late without menacing. Jumbo Gold enjoyed the box-seat run, straightened two deep under a hustling ride and was coming back to the field quickly over the final 200m to continue his dull run of form this season. Favourite Agiaal was struggling 250m out in a surprisingly empty performance after an eye-catching debut effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (755) - MAVERICK STAR HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650 Meters At declaration time, W Pike was declared as the rider of both PERFECT MOMENT and ABSOLUTE FANTASY.

It was established that W Pike had a firm commitment to ride PERFECT MOMENT.

As such, the Stewards permitted M L Yeung to be substituted as the rider of ABSOLUTE FANTASY.

For this declaration error, W Pike was fined $2,000.

On arrival at the Start, it was noted that FORTUNE WINNER had lost its right front plate.

After being replated, FORTUNE WINNER was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

NOBLE DE BEST began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, NOBLE DELUXE and ALWAYS SOMETHING were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, TRAVEL BRAND failed to muster pace.

When being steadied to obtain cover approaching the winning post on the first occasion, FORGIVE AND FORGET got its head up on a number of occasions.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, AMBITIOUS TREASURE got its head on the side and lay in towards the hindquarters of PERFECT MOMENT, resulting in FORGIVE AND FORGET and TRAVEL BRAND being crowded for room.

AMBITIOUS TREASURE made the Home Turn awkwardly.

When questioned, T Clark stated that he had been instructed to ride AGIAAL in about a midfield position if possible.

He said prior to the race AGIAAL became quite stirred up and sweated up whilst parading behind the barriers.

He said in the early stages he was racing to the outside of FORGIVE AND FORGET and when that horse maintained its position to his inside, AGIAAL was not able to obtain a position closer than three wide.

He said near the 1300 Metres AGIAAL was left racing wide and without cover.

He said when left racing without cover, AGIAAL was inclined to travel keenly.

He added after the 500 Metres AGIAAL came under pressure to maintain its position and rounding the Home Turn was bumped by PERFECT MOMENT which shifted out.

He said after being placed under pressure in the Straight, AGIAAL did not respond to his riding and weakened out of the race.

He said, in his opinion, the horses performance tonight could be attributed to the fact that it was not able to obtain cover and the manner in which it became worked up prior to the race.

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

A veterinary inspection of JUMBO GOLD after the race found that horse had bled from its right nostril.

The Veterinary Officer said an endoscopic examination confirmed the horse to be a bleeder.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that FORTUNE WINNER had lost its left front plate.

AGIAAL, FORTUNE WINNER and ABSOLUTE FANTASY were sent for sampling.
