Recap by phillip woo

Firming late Dragon Pins enjoyed the box-seat run, rounded the final bend four deep and wore down leader Better Announce 50m out, despite shifting a bit under pressure, for a second win from three starts this term. Better Announce got away with an uncontested lead, upped the tempo coming to the final bend, straightened near two lengths on top and found one better on the evening. Panther Run made his run behind midfield along the paint, rounded the final bend four-to-five deep and ran on nicely to overhaul Mobile King in the final few strides for a placing. Mobile King travelled effectively one-out, one-back in the run, straightened three deep and came up one-paced in the last 100m with every chance. Favourite Owners' Glory settled three back along the rails, straightened one off and ran on steadily without menacing. He had no excuses. Well-fancied Malayan Pearl broke well to settle second in the run and one off the rails, despite being restless in the stalls, turned the final bend five deep and only plodded to the line. Navel Orange settled third from the rear along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and made some ground late without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (234)-MOUNT GOUGH HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Metres

After being loaded, MALAYAN PEARL became fractious and put its head down on a number of occasions.

Before being allowed to race again, MALAYAN PEARL will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

NAVEL ORANGE was slow to begin.

EAGLE SPIRIT began awkwardly.

From the outside barriers, JOLLY GOOD and ABLE MAGIC were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, MOBILE KING, which began awkwardly, was crowded for room between WINNING ADVANTAGE and BETTER ANNOUNCE which shifted out abruptly after beginning awkwardly.

When being steadied in an attempt to obtain a position with cover after the 1700 Metres, WINNING ADVANTAGE travelled keenly.

Passing the 1600 Metres, FLYING IN lost its right hind plate.

ABLE MAGIC proved very difficult to settle in the early stages and got its head up on a number of occasions when being checked away from the heels of FLYING IN.

Then for some distance in the early and middle stages, ABLE MAGIC continued to prove difficult to settle.

For some distance approaching the 1000 Metres, EAGLE SPIRIT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MOBILE KING and passing the 1000 Metres was shifted to the outside of that horse.

After this, EAGLE SPIRIT travelled wide and without cover.

After the 500 Metres, JOLLY GOOD was taken wider by WINNING ADVANTAGE which, when giving ground, got its head on the side and hung out.

Approaching and passing the 200 Metres, OWNERS' GLORY and MOBILE KING raced tight.

Over the concluding stages, NAVEL ORANGE was steadied to avoid the heels of OWNERS' GLORY which shifted in.

For the majority of the race, WINNING ADVANTAGE travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on WINNING ADVANTAGE at the request of Trainer A T Millard.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

Also after the race, B Prebble reported that BETTER ANNOUNCE was making a respiratory noise on pulling up.

An endoscopic examination of BETTER ANNOUNCE did not reveal any significant findings.

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

OWNERS' GLORY, DRAGON PINS and BETTER ANNOUNCE were sent for sampling.
