Recap by phillip woo

Natural Champion enjoyed the box-seat run, came one off upon straightening and ran down Infinite Courage 200m out for a maiden win at his 14th start. Infinite Courage dictated the running from gate nine, cornered near two lengths on top and kept on gamely when headed. Mizzen Grey settled three back along the paint, peeled into the clear four deep upon straightening, worked to third at the 250m and just held off Prince Of Sunshine for a placing. Prince Of Sunshine swung the final bend with two wider out and was doing some nice work late. Favourite at the jump, Secretary Of State settled third from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out and was getting going late without menacing. All My Benefit travelled fourth and one off the rails, cornered four deep and was yielding ground 200m out. Malhechor Gold cornered widest out and never was a danger. Suisse D'Or prompted the pace, cornered three deep and was stopping badly at the 200m. Favourite Cruise Control was withdrawn.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (456)-BOAT QUAY HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

On arrival at the Start, it was noted ABLE DRAGON had a superficial wound over the right hip.

An examination of ABLE DRAGON by the Veterinary Officer found that horse suitable to race.

After being loaded, ALL MY BENEFIT became fractious.

ALL MY BENEFIT was removed from the stalls and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

Whilst ALL MY BENEFIT was undergoing its veterinary examination, CRUISE CONTROL also became very fractious and made contract with the front of the gates before sitting down.

CRUISE CONTROL was removed from the stalls and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said, in his opinion, it was not suitable to race having sustained a wound over the right elbow.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of CRUISE CONTROL.

Before being allowed to race again, ALL MY BENEFIT will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test whilst CRUISE CONTROL will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

MIZZEN GREY began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, MALHECHOR GOLD, JOLLY GOOD and SECRETARY OF STATE were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, EASY AHEAD failed to muster speed.

For the majority of the race, PRINCE OF SUNSHINE travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, Z Purton stated that SUISSE D'OR came under heavy pressure to maintain its position outside INFINITE COURAGE prior to the 500 Metres.

He said when under pressure early in the Straight SUISSE D'OR became unbalanced in its action and gave him the feel of a horse that may have gone amiss and for this reason after testing his mount in the early stages of the Straight he eased it down over the final 200 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of SUISSE D'OR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of SUISSE D'OR was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, SUISSE D'OR will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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

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

A veterinary inspection of ALL MY BENEFIT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of SECRETARY OF STATE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

SECRETARY OF STATE, NATURAL CHAMPION and INFINITE COURAGE were sent for sampling.
