Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Approve set a genuine tempo when hounded at the 1,200m by Regency King, kicked two length on top at the 250m and held on for the win, despite tippy-toeing inside the final 100m for a second straight mile win. He might find things harder off a big weight next time out in this grade. Red Dancer travelled effectively one-out, one-back, rounded the final bend four deep, worked to second at the 150m and couldn't reel in the winner. Green Manner settled third from the rear, peeled into the clear with one wider out at the 350m and ran on all right to claim a placing 100m out. Admiral Lord was at the rear from a wide gate following a sluggish break, rounded the final bend five deep and ran on nicely to snatch a First-4 spot from One Of A Kind, who travelled fifth along the rails, had to shift outside a tiring Sun Pins at the 150m and kept on all right thereafter. Sun Pins took hold at the 1,200m to enjoy the box-seat run, worked to second rounding the final bend and came up flat over the final 150m. He had no excuses. Regency King went forward to tackle the leader at the 1,200m and didn't have much left in the tank over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (263)-THE PEARCE MEMORIAL CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1600Metres

GLORIOUS RYDER was withdrawn on 20.12.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left hind).

CONNOISSEUR'S PICK was also withdrawn on 20.12.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore).

Before being allowed to race again, GLORIOUS RYDER and CONNOISSEUR'S PICK will both be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

As the start was effected, ADMIRAL LORD lifted its front feet off the ground and began only fairly.

ALPINEFIELD and GREEN MANNER were crowded for room at the start between CIRCUIT STAR and RED DANCER, both of which shifted ground.

Approaching the 1400 Metres, CIRCUIT STAR was momentarily crowded for room inside RED DANCER which was taken in by SUN PINS.

For some distance after the 1100 Metres, AXIOM was ridden along to maintain its position behind RED DANCER, however, failed to hold its position which resulted in CIRCUIT STAR being able to shift in in front of AXIOM.

APPROVE and RED DANCER were sent for sampling.
