Recap by phillip woo

Terrific Master settled behind midfield and one off the rails after a sluggish break, copped a bump while swinging the final bend with one wider out and rallied nicely to wear down Spirit Soaring in the final few metres for a maiden win at his sixth start. He's still green and should be a nice staying type for next season. Spirit Soaring stalked the leader Precious Gem, advanced to the front 350m out and kept up a solid gallop, despite shifting out mid-straight under pressure. China Delight wasn't suited by the even pace at the tail of the field, pushed into the clear with one wider out at the 250m and finished nicely to grab third in the closing stages. Plunged to jump favourite Malayan Pearl settled three back along the rails, moved to third at the 100m and lost a placing late. Happy Centenary settled worse than midfield and ran on without menacing with two wider out. Thanksgiving enjoyed the box-seat run after jumping best, straightened three deep and had little to offer. He's looked weak at the end of his races of late and may be looking forward to the summer recess. Early favourite Oxford Charley made no impression in the straight drive after a one-out, one-back run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (667)-SILVERSTRAND HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Metres

After being loaded, MARTIAL KING became fractious and reared.

Before being allowed to race again, MARTIAL KING will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

TERRIFIC MASTER was slow to begin.

From a wide barrier, HAPPY CENTENARY was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 1700 Metres, HOLY MAC was momentarily steadied away from the heels of TERRIFIC MASTER which was taken in by OXFORD CHARLEY (H Bowman).

H Bowman was advised to exercise more care.

Near the 1400 Metres, TERRIFIC MASTER was hampered after attempting to improve its position between MALAYAN PEARL and HAPPY CENTENARY which was being shifted in.

As the Stewards were satisfied that TERRIFIC MASTER and HAPPY CENTENARY made contact as both horses were attempting to obtain the same position simultaneously, no further action was taken.

Passing the 900 Metres, MARTIAL KING got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of TERRIFIC MASTER.

At the 200 Metres, TERRIFIC MASTER, which was shifting in, became unbalanced after being directed out away from SPIRIT SOARING which shifted out under pressure.

Over the concluding stage, MALAYAN PEARL was awkwardly placed inside the heels of SPIRIT SOARING.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of OXFORD CHARLEY, H Bowman stated that his mount was able to take up a good position when the pace of the race in the early stages was moderate.

He said after PRECIOUS GEM obtained the lead, the pace of the race became more genuine and after the 1400 Metres he became concerned with the manner in which OXFORD CHARLEY was travelling.

He said he had to ride his mount along after the 800 Metres to prevent THANKSGIVING from shifting out to its inside as having in mind that OXFORD CHARLEY was not travelling well and he did not want the horse to cover unnecessary ground.

He said as he had to continue to vigorously ride OXFORD CHARLEY along in an attempt to prevent THANKSGIVING from shifting out, this resulted in THANKSGIVING and OXFORD CHARLEY racing tight for some distance after the 700 Metres.

He added OXFORD CHARLEY commenced to give ground in the early part of the Straight and, in his opinion, was disappointing.

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

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

MALAYAN PEARL, TERRIFIC MASTER and SPIRIT SOARING were sent for sampling.
