Recap by phillip woo

Legend Express was posted off the course at the rear, swung the final bend widest out and finished up willingly to snatch victory from Thanksgiving and Pleasure Gains in the final few strides with a return to the turf. Thanksgiving settled midfield and one off the rails, rallied four deep upon straightening, wandered about while finishing off nicely to nail Pleasure Gains on the line for second. Early favourite Pleasure Gains settled one off the rails in second, moved to the front at the 400m from Fantasy And Gold and was overhauled in the dying stages. Backstreet Fighter ran on steadily to just get up for fourth after a slugging break. Tarrega enjoyed the gun run in third along the rails, was tight between the leading pair at the 400m and only held his ground over the final 200m. Majestic Anthem lay in under pressure and kept plugging on without menacing. Medic Kingdom failed to lift under a steady whip. Fantasy And Gold was stopping 300m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (660)-THE 18 DISTRICTS CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 4 - 1400Metres

After being saddled, TAI PO FORTUNE stumbled, became unbalanced and fell over in the Parade Ring.

On arrival at the Start, TAI PO FORTUNE was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of TAI PO FORTUNE.

Before being allowed to race again, TAI PO FORTUNE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When being saddled, the crossed nose band, which was to be worn by CRAIGS PRIDE for the first time today, was unable to be applied due to the fractious nature of the horse.

The Stewards approved for CRAIGS PRIDE to race without a crossed nose band.

When being loaded, the breast plate carried by EMPIRE CITY broke.

This piece of equipment required replacing which resulted in a delay to the start of the race.

MEDIC KINGDOM began awkwardly.

BACKSTREET FIGHTER was slow to begin.

Near the 1000 Metres, TRIUMPHANT WAY became unbalanced when being checked away from the heels of MEDIC KINGDOM which was awkwardly placed close to the heels of TARREGA.

At the 1000 Metres, GRACYTOM got its head up on a number of occasions when attempting to shift in and obtain cover behind PLEASURE GAINS.

For a short distance after this, THANKSGIVING raced tight inside GRACYTOM.

After this, GRACYTOM travelled wide and without cover.

After the 700 Metres, MAJESTIC ANTHEM got its head on the side, hung in and proved difficult to ride.

LOVELY PANDA, which was positioned just inside the heels of MAJESTIC ANTHEM, was inconvenienced in consequence.

MAJESTIC ANTHEM continued to get its head on the side and hang in rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight.

In the early part of the Straight, TARREGA was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FANTASY AND GOLD.

The performance of FANTASY AND GOLD, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

A veterinary inspection of MEDIC KINGDOM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MAJESTIC ANTHEM, LEGEND EXPRESS and THANKSGIVING were sent for sampling.
