Recap by phillip woo

Divine Diya settled behind midfield and one off the rails, dashed nicely to find the front four deep at the 150m and just held off the surprisingly late surge of rank outsider Smiling Watch for the win. Smiling Watch switched off at the tail of the field, swung the final bend widest out and let down willingly to make it a bob of heads on the wire. Late-fancied favourite Formula Won never got a clear crack at them until the 120m. He should have won. Sun Pins travelled one-out, one-back, made his move four deep to find the front 400m out and grudgingly gave way after wandering out under pressure over the final 150m. Stay Ahead settled second from the rear, straightened five deep and was getting to the line well. Swift Shadow took the sit in third behind the leader Grimmy, was restricted for racing room one off the fence upon straightening and made a mild bid when a gap finally opened up 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eleven: (500)-PRIMULA HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Metres

GREAT CHARM was withdrawn on 22.3.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetence) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter HELENE FUN STAR.

Before being allowed to race again, GREAT CHARM will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Shortly after the start, BE THERE AHEAD, which began awkwardly, was crowded for room between NICE FOLKS and SUN PINS which shifted out after being bumped by ABSOLUTE FANTASY.

SMILING WATCH was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

From a wide barrier, STAY AHEAD was taken across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 1000 Metres, ST YAZIN, which proved very difficult to settle, was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 1000 Metres, PRINCIPAL improved its position to be racing tight between DIVINE DIYA and ST YAZIN when there was insufficient room.

Then making the turn near the 900 Metres, PRINCIPAL was hampered when crowded for room between ST YAZIN and DIVINE DIYA which was taken out marginally by FORMULA WON.

NICE FOLKS and SMILING WATCH, which were following, were hampered in consequence.

Near the 250 Metres, NICE FOLKS became badly unbalanced after being bumped by BE THERE AHEAD which shifted out marginally.

For some distance after the 200 Metres, NICE FOLKS was awkwardly placed inside the heels of STAY AHEAD which shifted in.

Near the 150 Metres, BE THERE AHEAD was held up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of ABSOLUTE FANTASY.

FORMULA WON was badly held up when unable to obtain clear running until near the 150 Metres.

K Teetan (DIVINE DIYA) was fined $3,000 for improper use of the whip in that he raised weal marks over the horse!|s right hindquarter.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of PRINCIPAL, J Moreira stated that he had been asked to ride the horse in about 4th or 5th position from barrier 11 if possible.

He said PRINCIPAL did not show any early speed and he had to be make considerable use of the horse in the early stages to have it as close as possible to the leaders.

He said, despite being aggressively ridden along, PRINCIPAL was not able to obtain a position closer than midfield in the run to the first turn.

He said making the turn at the 900 Metres PRINCIPAL was crowded for room and after this was able to travel satisfactorily in a position with cover behind ST YAZIN.

He added he placed his mount under pressure to improve around the eventual winner DIVINE DIVA at the 500 Metres and PRINCIPAL initially quickened satisfactorily.

He said however that after the 300 Metres PRINCIPAL came under heavy pressure and lay in and near the 200 Metres had to be checked away from the heels of ST YAZIN.

He said he then continued to place PRINCIPAL under pressure, however, the horse gave ground noticeably over the concluding stages and was very disappointing.

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

The performance of PRINCIPAL was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, PRINCIPAL 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 SWIFT SHADOW immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FORMULA WON, DIVINE DIYA and SMILING WATCH were sent for sampling.
