Recap by phillip woo

Specked late at long odds Meridian Treasure settled fourth along the rails, peeled off a tiring Roman Legend three deep at the 350m and wore down Pretty One 50m out for an upset win. Pretty One settled fifth and one off the rails, bumped Silly Buddies when pulling into the clear with three wider at the 400m, worked to the front 150m out and plugged on nicely to hold hot favourite Silly Buddies for second. Odds-on favourite Silly Buddies settled three back and two off the rails with cover, badly lost his balance when making contact with one wider out and was pulling back the margin over the late stages to come out a clear third. Smart Forever was keen travelling behind midfield and one off the rails, then had to start-and-stop for most the straight before getting going nicely for fourth. He's a winner waiting to happen. Clancy Avenue settled three back and one off the rails, straightened two-to-three deep and stayed on all right in a much-improved effort. Roman Legend travelled one off in second behind The Prince, poked his head in front at the 200m and was giving ground 100m out. Real Treat went better, despite having tice to check in the straight drive after making his run near the back.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (321)-THE POK OI CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

SIR JOHN began awkwardly.

THE WAY FOR ALL began awkwardly and shifted out and shortly after the start struck the heels of SEMPITERNAL and blundered.

After this, THE WAY FOR ALL was taken across behind runners.

Passing the 1000 Metres, SMART FORWARD momentarily raced tight between CLANCY AVENUE and SILLY BUDDIES which shifted in.

Approaching the 500 Metres, PSYCHOLOGIST and SMART FORWARD raced tight.

A short distance later, PSYCHOLOGIST shifted out abruptly away from the heels of SILLY BUDDIES.

At the entrance to the Straight, SILLY BUDDIES was bumped by PRETTY ONE which got its head on the side and shifted out.

PSYCHOLOGIST, which was following SILLY BUDDIES, was shifted out away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

After this, SILLY BUDDIES got its head on the side and lay in for some distance, resulting in its rider, T Angland, changing its whip into his right hand passing the 300 Metres.

SILLY BUDDIES continued to lay in and near the 100 Metres was awkwardly placed outside PRETTY ONE which shifted out marginally.

After the race, T Angland reported that SILLY BUDDIES was reluctant to improve past PRETTY ONE in the Straight.

REAL TREAT had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Passing the 300 Metres, THE WAY FOR ALL was shifted in away from the heels of GLACIER BLUE which was giving ground.

After the 200 Metres, SMART FORWARD, which had difficulty obtaining clear running at times in the Straight, was shifted in after being disappointed for running between SILLY BUDDIES and PRETTY ONE.

Near the 150 Metres, CLANCY AVENUE was shifted in away from the heels of ROMAN LEGEND to obtain clear running.

After the 100 Metres, THE WAY FOR ALL, which was closing off the race strongly, was shifted in away from behind SMART FORWARD.

Throughout the race, GLACIER BLUE travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

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

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

SILLY BUDDIES, MERIDIAN TREASURE and PRETTY ONE were sent for sampling.
