Recap by phillip woo

Packing Llaregyb strolled forward without cover to settle one off in second at the 1,100m, straightened three deep and wore down Beauty Flame in the shadows of the post for the win. Beauty Flame led easily from gate eight, cornered near two lengths on top and again found one too good for a third time this season. Flame Hero made his run three back and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with three wider out and was closing the gap with every stride to make it close. Mr Gnocchi made his run underneath Flame Hero, straightened two deep and kept plugging away to secure a Quartet spot. Specked late, Enthusiasm eventually settle third and one off the rails, cornered three deep and kept on one-paced over the final 100m. Favourite Khaya settled at the rear of the field after missing the kick, stayed near the inside upon straightening and was doing some nice work late. Kabayan made only a mild bid after travelling fourth from the rear. Let Me Go made a good dash early straight from a position near the rear before peaking on his run 100m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eleven: (121)-SARCAR EXCELLENT HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1600Metres

On jumping, KABAYAN was crowded for room between MR GNOCCHI which was bumped by WINNING LEADER which shifted in and BUSINESS AS USUAL which shifted out.

After the 1000 Metres, KABAYAN raced tight inside WINNING LEADER which was taken in by ASHKIYR which shifted in before being directed out to relieve the tightening to runners to its inside.

Near the 500 Metres, KHAYA was hampered when obtaining a tight run inside KABAYAN.

After the 300 Metres, KABAYAN and WINNING LEADER raced tight.

For some distance after the 200 Metres, KHAYA was held up for clear running behind MR GNOCCHI.

KHAYA was then shifted in after the 100 Metres to obtain clear running.

Over the concluding stages, ENTHUSIASM raced tight outside MR GNOCCHI.

Throughout the race, ASHKIYR and BEAUTY LEAD travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that it had been intended for KHAYA to be ridden in a forward position as it was at its most recent start when successful.

He said after being loaded KHAYA became fractious and was constantly on the move.

He said as the start was effected the horse was leaning on the inside of the barrier and he was unable to get it to stand correctly despite the assistance of a starting gate handler.

He said as the gates opened KHAYA began very awkwardly, resulting in the horse losing ground.

He said he was aware that KHAYA had performed in a similar manner last season.

He added when KHAYA began badly, he did not believe it was in the horse's best interests to then ride it forward as he felt that this would more than likely take too much out of the horse with the consequence of it being unable to finish off the race.

He said therefore he elected to shift KHAYA across behind runners in the early stages and ride it for luck.

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

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

KHAYA, PACKING LLAREGYB and BEAUTY FLAME were sent for sampling.
