Recap by phillip woo

Lucky Hammer tracked the leader Thanksgiving one off from gate seven, advanced to the front five deep at the 200m and kept up a good gallop for a first win at his seventh start with a move to blinkers, step up in distance and drop in grade. Mazandaran travelled three back along the rails, peeled four deep upon straightening and stay on well to just hold favourite Navel Orange for second. Naval Orange made his run early on at the back following a sluggish break, took closer order just behind midfield at the 800m, made his move when flushed out four deep at the 450m, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished up reasonably well. Well-punted late, Thanksgiving eventually cleared 1,400m to lead from a wide gate, cornered a length on top and just held fourth, despite yielding ground 150m out. Rising Power lost ground and only had two behind him when having to steady off heels when the pace slackened 1,000m out, cornered one off and ran on steadily to just miss a First-4 spot. Fortune Bravo was able to slot in from a wide gate one off in fifth, copped a bump six deep at the 200m and stayed on reasonably well thereafter. He won't be far off a win.

On arrival at the barriers, it was noted that MAZANDARAN had lost its left front plate, resulting in the horse having to be replated.

MAZANDARAN was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

NAVEL ORANGE was slow to begin.

MAZANDARAN and UWILLBEGLORIOUS bumped at the start.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, MAZANDARAN lost its left front plate.

When the pace slackened after the 1200 Metres, LORD DRAGON proved very difficult to settle and was checked away from the heels of THANKSGIVING for some distance.

Near the 1100 Metres, MAZANDARAN, which was following LORD DRAGON, was checked away from that horse??s heels and FUN HEROES, which was following, was also checked.

RISING POWER and LIFE OF BEAUTY were also checked in consequence.

Passing the 900 Metres, NAVEL ORANGE shifted out away from the heels of UWILLBEGLORIOUS which was checked away from the heels of FIGHTING BOY.

NAVEL ORANGE then travelled wide and without cover for the remainder of the race.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, NAVEL ORANGE was awkwardly placed outside FIGHTING BOY which shifted out.

Approaching the 400 Metres, FIGHTING BOY raced tight between NAVEL ORANGE and FORTUNE BRAVO which shifted to the outside of LUCKY HAMMER.

Approaching the 200 Metres, FORTUNE BRAVO was hampered when racing tight between NAVEL ORANGE and LUCKY HAMMER which shifted out marginally.

Approaching the 150 Metres, Z Purton (LUCKY HAMMER) dropped his left rein.
