Recap by phillip woo

Gorgeous Debut pinged straight to the front, cornered just over a length on top and drew clear for a second straight win and third from seven starts, despite a step up in grade. Sparkling B settled behind midfield along the rails, straightened two off the rails in search of a run and dashed nicely when finding a gap 150m out to get up for second. Favourite My Little Friend settled three deep with cover in midfield, rounded the final bend five deep and ran on steadily to just miss second. Owners' Pride made his run behind midfield and two off the rails with cover, swung the final bend widest out and ran on well to finish just outside the placings. G-One Leader bided his time at the rear from the widest gate, straightened three-to-four deep and was doing some nice work late. Baltic Warrior travelled one off underneath Owners' Pride, swung the final end with three wider out and kept on all right, despite having to check 100m out in a pleasing debut effort. Beauty Journey settled midfield and one off the rails, rallied five deep and never properly tested over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (517)-THE SKOL CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

On arrival at the Start, the tongue tie applied to SPARKLING B was refitted.

From wide barriers, G-ONE LEADER, BEAUTY AHEAD and GLORY OF LONGWAH were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

CLANCY AVENUE lost its right hind plate after the 1000 Metres.

After being crossed by GORGEOUS DEBUT near the 800 Metres, CLANCY AVENUE got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse.

BRAVE BROTHER lost its left front plate at the 300 Metres.

SPARKLING B was badly held up for clear running until passing the 300 Metres.

Passing the 300 Metres, BEAUTY JOURNEY was inconvenienced when SPARKLING B shifted out to obtain clear running.

Then near the 150 Metres, BEAUTY JOURNEY was steadied when unable to improve between BRAVE BROTHER and MY LITTLE FRIEND where there was insufficient room.

After this, BEAUTY JOURNTY was badly held up for clear running and consequently was unable to be tested for the remainder of the race.

When held up for clear running, BEAUTY JOURNEY shifted out and bumped BALTIC WARRIOR near the 100 Metres which then was directed out across the heels of OWNERS' PRIDE into clear running.

Near the 250 Metres, BEAUTY AHEAD was checked away from the heels of BOULD MOVER which was giving ground.

Passing the 200 Metres, G-ONE LEADER was awkwardly placed behind ABLE WARRIOR when attempting to obtain clear running.

Then passing the 100 Metres, G-ONE LEADER was shifted in away from the heels of SPARKLING B.

For the majority of the race, BOULD MOVER travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, K Teetan stated that after having to ride his mount along in the early stages, BRAVE BROTHER was left racing in a three wide position outside ABLE WARRIOR in the run to the first turn.

He said after the 900 Metres he looked to his inside to establish whether he was clear of ABLE WARRIOR with a view to shifting in to a position one horse off the fence.

He said he had another look to his inside passing the 800 Metres and established that he was not sufficiently clear of ABLE WARRIOR to shift in.

He said he did consider riding BRAVE BROTHER along at this time in an endeavour to clear ABLE WARRIOR, however, he was of the opinion that ABLE WARRIOR would be ridden to maintain its position inside BRAVE BROTHER and therefore no advantage would be gained by having to ride his mount along after the 800 Metres.

He added he felt it was in the best interests of BRAVE BROTHER to have the horse balanced albeit in the three wide position without cover.
