Recap by phillip woo

Jun Dao jumped nicely from gate 10 to lead one off the stands side, drew a length clear at the 400m and kept finding to score a second win from three starts over this trip this season. Nightlign was handy in the run in the middle of the course from gate one and kept up a good gallop to overhaul Well Fi t in the final few strides for second. Well Fit was up vying for the lead from gate two and kept on gamely. Vintage Hussler was battling for the lead outside Well Fit and was yielding ground over the last 150m. Specked late, Diamond Knight travelled on the back of the leaders, loomed a chance at the 200m and blew up over the last 100m. Great Alexander recovered to settle midfield and on the grandstand side after sitting down at the jump, came two off the outside fence at the 600m and kept on well over the final 100m as the well-fancied favourite in his debut. He'll come on for this run and looks one that will want a further trip. Expedite missed the kick and made some late ground. Tayside boiled over before the start after antics at the gate and was struggling a long way out. He'll need more education.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (132) - LINK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Meters After being loaded, TAYSIDE became fractious and momentarily got its right hind leg on the platform.

TAYSIDE was removed from the stalls and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

Before being allowed to race again, TAYSIDE will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial.

ALL LUCKY began awkwardly, shifted out and in doing so made contact with DIAMOND KNIGHT which became unbalanced.

GREAT ALEXANDER was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, EXPEDITE was steadied when crowded for room between INVINCIBLE HEART and TEAM WORK which was taken out by WELL FIT.

When questioned regarding the performance of GREAT ALEXANDER, which was having its first race start today, B Prebble stated that unlike in its trial, GREAT ALEXANDER was hesitant to begin after standing in the barriers for some time whilst TAYSIDE underwent a veterinary examination.

He said because of the manner in which GREAT ALEXANDER began, he had to make some use of the horse in the early and middle stages to have it obtain a more forward position.

He said whilst over the concluding stages GREAT ALEXANDER weakened on its run, he believed that the horse's performance today could be attributed to the manner in which it began.

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

A veterinary inspection of TAYSIDE after the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had sustained a minor abrasion to the right hock.

GREAT ALEXANDER, JUN DAO and NIGHTLIGN were sent for sampling.
