Recap by phillip woo

Little Dreams was well-rated along the rails in midfield, stayed to the rails upon straightening, swept to the front 100m out and kept on gamely to make it consecutive course-and-distance wins. Albiceleste was switched off at the back from a wide gate, straightened two off and finished up willingly to run down Bullish Boy for second. Outdoor Pegasus enjoyed a dream run on the back of the speed, shifted three deep upon straightening and came up flat when asked for a response. It Has To Be You was taken back from a wide gate to settle third from the rear and one off the rails, pushed into the clear with two wider out at the 250m and ran on nicely to just miss a First-4 spot under top weight. He'll come on for this run. Jolly Fine had to steady between runners seven deep at the 250m and ran on steadily without menacing soon after with clear running. Specked late, Flying Unicorn was prominent in the run with cover, was under the pump coming to the final bend, straightened four deep and only held his ground. He needs a return to Class Three. Familists travelled outside Little Dreams in the run, rounded the final bend with three wider out and only held his ground over the final 200m. Favourite Pleasure Gains was posted without cover in midfield, worked his way to fourth at the 500m, swung the final bend six deep and came up flat 150m out. He had excuses.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (182)-SUTHERLAND HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650Metres

CHATER WAY was withdrawn on 19.11.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter SHINY DAY (T H So).

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

TRAVEL BRAND and PLEASURE GAINS bumped at the start.

From wide barriers, IT HAS TO BE YOU, ALBICELESTE and VANILLA were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, FLYING UNICORN got its head on the side, shifted in and bumped OUTDOOR PEGASUS.

Near the 1600 Metres, FAMILISTS shifted in slightly and bumped FLYING UNICORN which became unbalanced and in turn shifted in and made contact with OUTDOOR PEGASUS.

Shortly after the entering the Straight, FLYING UNICORN was shifted to the inside of SHINY DAY after being disappointed for running between that horse and PLEASURE GAINS.

For some distance approaching the 250 Metres, JOLLY FINE was held up for clear running between PLEASURE GAIN and FAMILISTS.

IT HAS TO BE YOU got its head on the side, hung in under pressure in the Straight and proved difficult to ride.

Over the concluding stages, IT HAS TO BE YOU shifted ground inwards, resulting in its rider, O Doleuze, having to stop riding and straighten his mount.

When questioned, Z Purton said he was not under any specific instructions on how to ride PLEASURE GAINS, however, it was anticipated that that horse may be able to obtain a position in about midfield.

He said it was also anticipated that the race would be run at a strong tempo which would spread the field out in the early stages and it had been hoped that PLEASURE GAINS would be able to obtain a position behind FAMILISTS.

He said he also anticipated that TRAVEL BRAND, which was drawn immediately to the inside of PLEASURE GAINS, would be positioned towards the rear, however, that horse began well and was then ridden along to maintain a position.

He said because of the manner in which the race was run, PLEASURE GAINS was left racing in a three wide position without cover passing the winning post on the first occasion.

He added the race was run at a fair tempo in the middle stages and because of this he did not consider allowing PLEASURE GAINS to stride forward to obtain a position closer to the rail but rather he ensured that the horse remained balanced so that it would be able to then finish off the race.

He said although racing wide and without cover, PLEASURE GAINS travelled comfortably before being placed under pressure rounding the Home Turn.

He said however that PLEASURE GAINS did not show the same turn of foot that it had shown in its previous races and was then disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of PLEASURE GAINS immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

A veterinary inspection of TRAVEL BRAND immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being allowed to race again, TRAVEL BRAND will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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

PLEASURE GAINS, LITTLE DREAMS and ALBICELESTE were sent for sampling.
