Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, Multiexpress settled second along the rails after leading early on, reclaimed the front passing the 200m and drew clear to win easily with a gear change to blinkers. Favourite K-Moochi settled third and one off the rails, straightened three deep and went to second 50m out. Power Cool settled midfield and on the fence, straightened four deep and was tending to hang out under pressure over the final 250m. Well-punted late, Namjong Blossoms rushed forward from a wide gate to ensure a good tempo, came to the final bend two lengths on top but was then overhauled. Dragon Keeper enjoyed a soft run along the rails in fourth, straightened one off and was only plodding over the final 200m. Golden Addiction made his run behind midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with one wider out and made some ground late without menacing. Penny Lane settled fifth from the rear and one off the rails, turned the final bend with two wider out and made some progress late in an improved effort with the tongue-tie on off a light weight.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (076)-FA PO HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

AFFECTION was withdrawn on 11.10.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter MISTER MARC (W M Lai).

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

Whilst in the Parade Ring, it was noted that MISTER MARC had lost its right front plate.

This plate was refitted.

MISTER MARC was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

ROBUST MOMENTUM was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, GOLDEN ADDICTION was bumped by NAMJONG BLOSSOMS which shifted out after beginning awkwardly.

From a wide barrier, PHANMA was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early part of the Straight, CHARTER VICTORIA lay in behind GOLDEN ADDICTION.

Passing the 300 Metres, POWER COOL shifted out abruptly.

Throughout the race, HIGH RETURN travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the improved performance of MULTIEXPRESS, Trainer A S Cruz stated that the horse has had some feet issues throughout its career which had often been difficult to manage.

He said at its first up run this season the horse appeared disinterested and after being required to barrier trial satisfactorily before being passed to race again, he decided to apply blinkers to the horse in an attempt to have it concentrate more.

He said after having the blinkers applied, MULTIEXPRESS trialed well and based on this he believed the application of the blinkers was the principal reason behind the horses improved performance.

He added with the blinkers applied, MULTIEXPRESS was able to race on the speed and then closed off the race well which was in total contrast to its most recent start.

Mr Cruz was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he was reminded of the need for horses to race consistently wherever circumstances permit.

MULTIEXPRESS and K-MOOCHI were sent for sampling.
