Recap by phillip woo

Dark Secret settled worse than midfield and between runners, was held up for a clear run four deep upon straightening, switched outside Mizzen Grey for a clear run at the 200m and wore that rival in the dying stages for a maiden victory at his 26 th start. Early favourite Mizzen Grey was nicely rated in fifth and one off the rails, worked to the front five deep at the 100m and found one too smart in the end. He was definitely suited by a return to Class Five. Well-punted late, Humongus travelled along the rails in midfield and had to duck-and-weave for a run over the final 200m to get up in the final few metres for third. Mirage R settled on the back of the speed in third and fourth after leading early on, straightened one off, worked to the front at the 150m and grudgingly gave way late. Supreme Tycoon was hard ridden from gate nine to eventually lead passing the winning post for the first time, was headed by China Delight at the 800m, straightened three deep and lost a placing 100m out. Flying Keeper swung the final bend with one wider out and made some ground late without menacing. Sunseeker made his run at the rear and along the rails when failing to muster, hampered by the fallen horse Mr Marfach coming to the 1,000m and kept on passed beaten rivals.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (744)-ORCHID HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

From wide barriers, HOLLYWOOD KISS and SABINA were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the 1600 Metres, FLYING KEEPER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MIZZEN GREY.

The Stewards adjourned an inquiry into the reason for G Mossé being dislodged from MR MARFACH passing the 1100 Metres due to G Mossé being transported to hospital.

When G Mossé was dislodged from MR MARFACH, MR MARFACH shifted out and made heavy contact with the hindquarters of SABINA which became badly unbalanced.

SUNSEEKER, which was following MR MARFACH, was checked and lost ground and HOLLYWOOD KISS, which was also following MR MARFACH, was severely checked and lost a considerable amount of ground.

Near the 900 Metres, SUNSEEKER was checked and lost ground when crowded for room inside the riderless MR MARFACH.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, HOLLYWOOD KISS and SUNSEEKER were further inconvenienced when taken wider by the riderless horse.

Near the 250 Metres, DARK SECRET was checked and shifted to the outside of MIZZEN GREY when disappointed for running between that horse and SABINA which shifted out under pressure.

As the Stewards were of the opinion that DARK SECRET had not established running between SABINA and MIZZEN GREY, no further action was taken.

HUMONGUS was badly held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 200 Metres was shifted to the inside of the heels of SUPREME TYCOON to obtain clear running.

Approaching the 250 Metres, A Suborics (CHINA DELIGHT) dropped his whip.

A Suborics was advised of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels all the way to the finish where circumstances permit.

Throughout the race, LUCKY ARMY travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of HOLLYWOOD KISS and MR MARFACH immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HOLLYWOOD KISS, DARK SECRET and MIZZEN GREY were sent for sampling.
