Recap by phillip woo

Free Judgement was ridden quietly at the tail, had one behind him coming to the final bend widest out and finished willingly to grab Approve in the final few strides for the win. Well-punted late, Approve stalked the leader, advanced to the front three deep at the 200m and went down fighting in another dead-game effort, despite the switch to dirt. Hypersonic settled behind midfield and three deep with cover, rounded the final bend with one wider out, worked to second at the 100m and came up flat final 50m. Perfect Cheers settled fourth along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept plugging away to inject value into the First-4. Let Me Handle It made his run third from the rear and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with three wider out and ran on steadily to edge out Great Spirit for fifth prize money. Great Spirit worked to third at the 200m and knocked up final 150m. He didn't see out the trip. Favourite Eagle Power was handy in the run and one off the rails, shuffled back to a position behind midfield coming to the final bend, straightened four-to-five deep and only held his ground in the drive.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (508)-DIAMOND HILL HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650Metres

After leaving the Parade Ring and prior to entering the track, WIRE TO WIRE became fractious and made heavy contact with a rail, resulting in Y T Cheng, its rider, being dislodged.

The Veterinary Officer reported that WIRE TO WIRE had sustained a wound to the right hind leg.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of WIRE TO WIRE.
