Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite, Osvaldo was patiently ridden second from the rear and two deep passing the 1,200m behind some nice sectionals, had to steady off a stopping Ride With The Wind at the 500m, switched into the clear widest out passing the 300m and thundered home to get up in the shadows of the post for a third win over this course and distance this season with a drop in grade. Perfect Cheers made his run fourth from the rear and two deep, rounded the final bend widest out, briefly put his lip in front 10m out and found one too good in a thrilling finish. Distill settled behind midfield and on the rails, switched off the heels of Banksters Bonus with two wider out at the 200m and finished up well to snare third from Happy Tumbler in the final few bounds. Happy Tumbler made his run third from the rear and along the inside after breaking from gate 10, rallied five wide upon straightening and found a few too finishing up too fast on his outside to just miss a placing. Late-fancied Emperor Claudius sat on the back of the leader Cartoon Fay Fay, worked to the lead three deep at the 250m and was swamped 20m out for a placing. He may have found the pace too quick tracking the speed. Jolly Good bided his time at the rear from gate 11, switched into the clear four deep upon straightening, loomed at lead a place at the 50m and was overhauled for a placing in the final few metres.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (758) - BULLDOZER HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1800 Meters As the start was effected, PERFECT CHEERS lifted its front feet off the ground and was slow to begin.

OSVALDO and HAPPY TUMBLER were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1100 Metres, PERFECT CHEERS got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of BANKSTERS BONUS which itself was steadied away from the heels of RIO WILLIE.

Near the 600 Metres, RIDE WITH THE WIND commenced to give ground abruptly and finished tailed out.

A veterinary inspection of RIDE WITH THE WIND after the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had sustained a superficial wound to the back of the left hind cannon.

The performance of RIDE WITH THE WIND was considered unacceptable.

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

Near the 500 Metres, OSVALDO was checked away from the heels of the tiring RIDE WITH THE WIND.

Near the 100 Metres, JOLLY GOOD was shifted to the inside of EMPEROR CLAUDIUS to continue improving.

Throughout the race, SPIRIT SOARING travelled wide and without cover.

EMPEROR CLAUDIUS, OSVALDO and PERFECT CHEERS were sent for sampling.


GENERAL : 1.

After the running of Race 1, the track classification was officially changed from Good to Good to Firm.

This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective.

As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 1 being run on a track rated Good to Firm.
