Recap by phillip woo

Well Fit went forward from gate six to eventually lead in the centre of the course at the 800m from Hinyuen Paladin, increased his margin to near two lengths at the 600m and kept on gamely to produce an opening-day win for new rider Richard Fourie. Solar Spirit settled midfield and one off the stands side fence from an outside gate and finished up well with some late-market movement. D Day Super was near the speed in the centre of the course and kept on well for a placing. Specked late, Celestialblessings settled fourth from the rear and two off the grandstand side, switched into the clear with only two underneath him at the 400m and stayed on well to finish a closing fourth. He's open to improvement and will be better when stepping up over a longer sprint. Duo Glory travelled on the back of the speed and two off the outside fence, had every chance at the 300m and came up one-paced over the final 150m. Hinyuen Paladin was coming back to the field over the last 400m. Beauty King failed to let down in another disappointing effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (005) - HARCOURT HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Meters At declaration time, B Prebble was declared as the rider of both CELESTIALBLESSINGS and SOLAR SPIRIT It was established that B Prebble had a firm commitment to ride SOLAR SPIRIT.

As such, the Stewards permitted W C Marwing to be substituted as the rider of CELESTIALBLESSINGS.

For this declaration error, B Prebble was fined $2,000.

SAFARI MAGIC, WELL FIT and DUO GLORY all began awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, SHARP PRINT raced in restricted room between CELESTIALBLESSINGS and GRACYTOM which got its head on the side and shifted out away from WELL FIT.

Near the 900 Metres, BEAUTY KING was hampered by SOLAR SPIRIT which shifted in when momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of HINYUEN PALADIN.

SOLAR SPIRIT was not able to obtain clear running until near the 300 Metres.

Passing the 150 Metres, CELESTIALBLESSINGS was shifted to the outside of D DAY SUPER to continue improving.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of JADE CHRISTY, Z Purton stated that he had ridden the horse in a barrier trial in the lead up to todays race with the blinkers applied and, in his opinion, this trial was good.

He said JADE CHRISTY travelled strongly until the 400 Metres, however, came under pressure at this point.

He said in its previous races, JADE CHRISTY had responded well when placed under pressure, however, today did not show any turn of foot and was disappointing in the manner in which it weakened out of the race over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of JADE CHRISTY and SAFARI MAGIC after the race did not show any significant findings.

JADE CHRISTY, WELL FIT and SOLAR SPIRIT were sent for sampling.
