Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on choice, Gentilis made good use of his natural speed to easily lead from gate three, cornered near three lengths on top and kept on gamely for the win off a light weight. Clever Beaver settled one-out, one-back, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished well to nail Affluence Of Rain close to home for second. Affluence Of Rain took the short route home in midfield and just missed the Quinella spot. Both Sure swung the final bend with one wider out following a one off run in midfield and ran on steadily without threatening in fourth. He'll be hard to keep out of the placings next time out with this run underneath his belt. Photon Willie was posted deep with cover behind midfield, rounded the final bend five deep and was doing some nice work late in an improved performance. Groovy made some ground from the tail of the field after jumping slow. Caga Force weakened in the straight run after enjoying a dream run on the back of the speed. Brave Brother struggled after a no-cover run in midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (099)-EMERALD HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

BRAVE BROTHER and GRAN BOLIVAR made heavy contact at the start.

From wide barriers, PHOTON WILLIE, GROOVY and SNOWHOOVES were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 900 Metres, GRAN BOLIVAR proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

After the 800 Metres, PHOTON WILLIE also commenced to prove very difficult to settle.

Approaching the 700 Metres, SNOWHOOVES got its head up when being shifted in away from the heels of PHOTON WILLIE.

Approaching the 400 Metres, BRAVE BROTHER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CLEVER BEAVER which got its head on the side and shifted out away from the heels of GLORY BOY which was laying out.

Shortly after entering the Straight, AFFLUENCE OF RAIN was shifted in away from the heels of CAGA FORCE which shifted in when giving ground.

Passing the 200 Metres, GERONIMO MEADOW was shifted to the inside of CAGA FORCE to continue improving.

Then passing the 150 Metres, GERONIMO MEADOW raced tight between GROOVY and CAGA FORCE which continued to lay in when giving ground.

Near the 50 Metres, GRAN BOLIVAR was checked away from the heels of CAGA FORCE.

After the race, K Teetan reported that BRAVE BROTHER, which travelled wide and without cover throughout the race, did not feel comfortable in its action.

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

Before being allowed to race again, BRAVE BROTHER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of CAGA FORCE immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and an endoscopic examination also showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.
