Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Invictus settled third along the fence, came one off at the 450m, swept to the lead at the 200m and drew clear for a nice win with a step up in distance in his initial run on the dirt. Plot Ratio settled third from rear and two off the fence after a check soon after the start, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished up willingly to easily claim second 50m out. Plunged late to jump favourite, M's Magic settled fourth and one off the fence, worked to sit outside the leader in second at the 900m, briefly hit the front 200m out and found a couple too good. Humongus settled midfield and one off the fence, straightened four deep, switched inside for a clear run at the 150m and ran on steadily along the inside. Mr Marfach swung the final bend six deep and eventually got going in the final 200m when the race was all over to shade Able Dragon for some minor prize money. Able Dragon made his run fourth from the rear along the inside, swung the final bend outside Mr Marfach and made some progress. Winner Smart was coming back to the field over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (361)-ON MING HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650 Metres PLOT RATIO blundered badly at the start, resulting in its rider, H W Lai, becoming badly unbalanced in the saddle and losing the use of his left stirrup iron for a short distance.

MR MARFACH began only fairly.

NEWSWIRE TOO began awkwardly and shortly after the start shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of INVICTUS which became unbalanced.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, HUMONGUS was steadied away from the heels of EUPHEMISM (A Suborics) which shifted in when not properly clear.

A Suborics was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

Near the 500 Metres, MR MARFACH was awkwardly placed close to the heels of EUPHEMISM.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on MS MAGIC at the request of Trainer P Osullivan.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, MS MAGIC will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of ICE FIRE after the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of EUPHEMISM including an endoscopic examination after the race confirmed that horse to be a roarer which had previously been reported.

MS MAGIC, INVICTUS and PLOT RATIO were sent for sampling.
