Recap by phillip woo

Smiling Watch settled one-out, one-back, worked to the lead soon after straightening and punched clear for an impressive win with money coming on late. Supreme Essence was a handy fifth in the run and one off the rails, dashed to second four deep at the 250m and was no match for the winner in his dirt debut. Double Glory was scrubbed along behind midfield and one off the rails from the widest gate, swung the final bend with three deeper out and was eating up the ground late for third. Follow The Wind rounded the final bend deepest out and finished up willingly to grab fourth from Holy Mac, who travelled prominently along the rails in fourth, but only kept on evenly over the final 100m with every chance. Admiral Lord bided his time second from the rear and near the inside, came one off at the 250m and ran on steadily without menacing. Favourite Invictus was caught deep until finding a spot one off in second from Glamorous Honour, narrowly led entering the straight and was struggling 200m out. Specked late, Born To Win still had plenty to do straightening three deep and only held his ground under a persistent whip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (126)-PARROT HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

After being loaded, BORN TO WIN became fractious and then began awkwardly.

Before being allowed to race again, BORN TO WIN will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

Just prior to the start being effected, DOUBLE GLORY became fractious and as the start was effected began only fairly.

DOUBLE GLORY was then ridden along in the early stages.

FOLLOW THE WIND was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, ADMIRAL LORD and XILAI XIANZI were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the 1100 Metres, DOUBLE GLORY was crowded for room inside EVERSPRING which, after shifting in momentarily, was then shifted out abruptly to relieve the tightening to DOUBLE GLORY.

FIGHTING BOY, which was following EVERSPRING, was hampered in consequence.

Passing the 300 Metres, PLENTIFUL was shifted out away from the heels of EVERSPRING which was giving ground.

The performance of GLAMOROUS HONOUR, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

O Doleuze (SUPREME ESSENCE) was fined a sum of $2,000 for raising his whip arm above shoulder height in the Straight.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of INVICTUS, W C Marwing stated that INVICTUS did not show great early pace in the race and took some time to clear runners to its inside and obtain a forward position outside the leader GLAMOROUS HONOUR.

He said although it did take some time to obtain this position, he did not have to ride the horse vigorously to do so.

He said after obtaining the position outside GLAMOROUS HONOUR, INVICTUS travelled well and when GLAMOROUS HONOUR commenced to give ground, INVICTUS was able to improve its position into the lead passing the 500 Metres.

He added however that INVICTUS came under pressure rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, but did not quicken as he expected, rather the horse stayed on one-paced in the Straight.

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

INVICTUS, SMILING WATCH and SUPREME ESSENCE were sent for sampling.
