Recap by phillip woo

Well found late in the betting, Intellectualstride was perfectly rated in fourth and one off the fence, swept to the lead five wide at the 200m and held off the late surge of favourite Very Well for the win with a return to Class Four. Very Well settled three back and on the rails, pushed into the clear with three wider out upon straightening and finished up nicely to be a clear second. He won't be far off a win at this level. The Fast Lane settled behind midfield and on the fence, straightened three deep, switched off the heels of Very Well at the 100m and finished up for third 20m out in his Valley debut. Specked late, Sure Champ settled third from the rear along the fence, still had two behind him upon straightening and finished up nicely near the inside to make it close for third. Real Dragon settled one off the fence in second, briefly led three deep at 250m and was swamped late for a placing. Danzulu bided his time second from the wide rear, swung the final bend widest and was running on late without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (272)-URANUS HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1650 Metres RAY'S FAVOURITE lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and then shifted in, resulting in VERY WELL being crowded for room outside FLORA DANICA.

THE FAST LANE began awkwardly.

SURE CHAMP, which was leaning on the outside of its gate, was slow to begin.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, RAY'S FAVOURITE (T Queally) got its head on the side and shifted in away from INTELLECTUALSTRIDE, resulting in VERY WELL being crowded for room.

T Queally was advised to ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, THE FAST LANE was momentarily crowded for room inside HEART OF GRACE which shifted in abruptly when awkwardly placed close to the heels of RAY'S FAVOURITE.

Passing the 1300 Metres, VERY WELL, which was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MERIDIAN TREASURE, raced tight inside RAY'S FAVOURITE which itself was awkwardly placed close to the heels of INTELLECTUALSTRIDE.

HEART OF GRACE, which was following RAY'S FAVOURITE, was shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse and in doing so was checked away from the heels of SUNNY MORE.

Rounding the Home Turn, RAY'S FAVOURITE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of VERY WELL which shifted out.

Approaching the 200 Metres, MERIDIAN TREASURE was steadied when crowded for room between REAL DRAGON and FLORA DANICA (R Fourie) which shifted out when commencing to give ground.

R Fourie was severely reprimanded and told that in similar circumstances he must make more of an effort to prevent his mounts from shifting ground than he did on this occasion.

For some distance after the 100 Metres, MERIDIAN TREASURE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of REAL DRAGON.

Because of this, MERIDIAN TREASURE was not able to be properly ridden out over the concluding stages.

Throughout the race, SUNNY MORE travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of JACKPOT MASCOT after the race found that horse to be lame in its right front leg.

The performance of JACKPOT MASCOT, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

INTELLECTUALSTRIDE and VERY WELL were sent for sampling.
