Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Riyadh was ridden along following a sluggish break to eventually settle fourth from the rear and near the rails, improved his position to settle behind midfield and two off at the 800m, swung the final bend widest out and finished up willingly to take control 100m out for back-to-back wins. Zachary travelled behind midfield and one off the rails, shifted into the clear five deep at the 200m and ran on nicely to wear down Safari Magic close to home for second with a gear change to blinkers. Safari Magic settled effectively one-out, one-back, worked to the front four deep at the 200m and kept on gamely to hold a spot in the exotics. Winning Mascot turned the final bend four deep at the tail of the field and was doing some nice work to snatch fourth ahead of Good Thinker, who was handy in the run and one off the rails and stayed on reasonably well six deep in the straight drive. He appreciated the claimer's allowance and may be near a rating bottom. Beauty King drove forward from a wide gate to eventually lead 1,200m out, cornered near two lengths on top and was stopping 100m out. King Haradasun was never on the course in midfield, was under the pump 450m out, swung the final bend with two wider out and was one-paced over the final 200m. Cool Bean settled behind midfield along the rails, came one off upon straightening and failed to lift under pressure at the 250m in another disappointing performance. Bolero settled fourth along the rails and gave way soon after straightening. Fancied late, Win It made his run at the tail of the field and never was a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (178)-MORSE HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

RIYADH began only fairly.

From wide barriers, WINNING MASCOT, EURO SWIFTLY and WIN IT were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

When being steadied in the early stages, ZACHARY got its head up and shortly afterwards was bumped by SAFARI MAGIC which shifted out.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, WINNING MASCOT got its head up and shifted out, resulting in EURO SWIFTLY being crowded for room inside WIN IT.

Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, HURRY HURRY UP commenced to prove difficult to settle and shifted out away from the heels of BEAUTY KING, resulting in SAFARI MAGIC being taken wider.

After the 900 Metres, ZACHARY was steadied away from the heels of GOOD THINKER which shifted in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SAFARI MAGIC which was being steadied to obtain a trailing position behind HURRY HURRY UP.

WINNING MASCOT, which was following ZACHARY, got its head up on a number of occasions when being steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

After the 500 Metres, COOL BEAN was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BOLERO and tight inside GOOD THINKER which lay in.

Shortly after straightening, HURRY HURRY UP was inconvenienced when disappointed for running between BEAUTY KING and SAFARI MAGIC which shifted in.

After the 300 Metres, EURO SWIFTLY was momentarily crowded for room inside COOL BEAN which was shifted in in an attempt to obtain clear running to the inside of BOLERO.

A short distance later, COOL BEAN was directed out away from the heels of BOLERO which shifted in.

EURO SWIFTLY was not able to obtain clear running over the final 200 Metres and consequently was not able to be tested.

Over the concluding stages, COOL BEAN was awkwardly placed when racing in restricted room between HURRY HURRY UP and BEAUTY KING which shifted in.

For the majority of the race, KING HARADASUN travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of COOL BEAN, WIN IT and BOLERO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

RIYADH and ZACHARY were sent for sampling.
