Recap by phillip woo

Medic Champion dictated a dawdling pace after easily clearing to lead from gate six, was under pressure at the 600m, cornered a half-length on top and kept on gamely to just hold Supreme Tycoon for the win. Supreme Tycoon cornered in five wide and stayed on well to make it tight at the finish. Mega Castle settled fourth and one off the fence in the run, peeled into the clear with one wider out soon after straightening and finished will to make it close at the wire in third. Mirage R settled along the fence in fifth, stayed pinned to the rails upon straightening and was in a barging match over the final 100m with Mount Victory to just hold that rival in a bob of heads for fourth. Firming second pick, Mount Victory settled behind midfield and on the rails, straightened three-to-four deep, shifted one off over the last 150m and was getting closer with each stride while laying onto Mirage R. Euphemism sat on the back of the leader one off the fence, straightened three deep with every chance and gave up the chase in the last 100m. Favourite Top Power sat on the back of the speed in third along the fence, stayed near the inside upon straightening and was whacking on evenly without threatening over the last 200m in a disappointing effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (197) - SAPPORO HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800 Meters ABLE DRAGON and MEGA CASTLE bumped at the start.

FORTUNE COOKIE was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, SUPREME TYCOON was crowded for room between EUPHEMISM and HUMONGUS which shifted in.

After this, HUMONGUS was taken across behind runners.

Near the 1600 Metres, FORTUNE COOKIE shifted in when proving difficult to settle and in doing so bumped ABLE DRAGON which became unbalanced.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, TOP POWER was checked away from the heels of MEDIC CHAMPION (U Rispoli) which shifted in when not sufficiently clear.

U Rispoli was reprimanded and advised to ensure he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

MIRAGE R, which was following TOP POWER, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

Passing the 200 Metres, MOUNT VICTORY and MIRAGE R bumped as MOUNT VICTORY was shifted in in an attempt to obtain clear running.

As a result of this contact, both horses became unbalanced.

For the remainder of the race, MIRAGE R and MOUNT VICTORY raced tight as MOUNT VICTORY continued to attempt to improve into tight running inside MEDIC CHAMPION which shifted in under pressure.

In this incident, MIRAGE R was bumped on a number of occasions by MOUNT VICTORY when being taken in.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of TOP POWER, B Prebble stated that his mount was not able to quicken when the tempo increased after the 700 Metres.

He said after this TOP POWER came off the bridle and despite being ridden out in the Straight weakened over the final 200 Metres.

He added that although TOP POWER had raced well at its last start over the course and distance, he felt that the horse may be better suited to races that are run at a more genuine tempo than tonight's race.

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

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

TOP POWER, MEDIC CHAMPION and SUPREME TYCOON were sent for sampling.
