Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Sledge Hammer travelled fourth along the rails, worked to the front three deep at the 250m and drew clear for a maiden win at his 17 start following a positive run on the weekend. Good Times Roll travelled at the rear along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and got going late under vigourous riding to grab second in the final few metres. Palepale was ridden along to obtain a spot third and one off the rails, worked to second four deep at the 100m and soon flattened out thereafter. Daily Double settled midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and ran on steadily to edge Solar Boy in the shadows of the post for fourth. Solar Boy was hard ridden to eventually share the lead underneath Prosperity Aethon, was an outright leader soon after straightening and was giving ground 100m out. Gracytom settled fourth from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out and was doing his best work late. Brilliant Light was one off early on, before being posted three deep without cover in midfield at the 600m, swung the final bend with three wider out and failed to threaten. Croatia settled second from the rear, swung the final bend widest out and was never a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (695)-ORCHID HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

TAKE THE RAP was withdrawn on raceday afternoon by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore).

Before being allowed to race again, TAKE THE RAP will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

BRILLIANT LIGHT shifted out and bumped BORNFREE at the start.

On jumping, DIAMOND ANGEL (Apprentice C Y Lui) shifted out and bumped GRACYTOM.

In this incident, Apprentice Lui lost the use of his right stirrup iron for some distance and then was not able to properly correct his foot in the iron until near the 600 Metres.

From the outside barrier, GRACYTOM was taken across behind runners in the early stages.

GOOD TIMES ROLL was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 700 Metres, BRILLIANT LIGHT was left racing wide and without cover.

In the Straight, SOLAR BOY lay out under pressure.

When questioned, O Doleuze stated that, despite riding his mount vigorously throughout the race, CROATIA did not travel at any stage.

He said he shifted his mount to the outside of runners in the middle stages to see whether CROATIA might commence to travel better, however, the horse continued to prove reluctant to race.

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

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that BORNFREE had bled from both nostrils.

SLEDGE HAMMER and GOOD TIMES ROLL were sent for sampling.
