Recap by phillip woo

Rolled-up in betting, Principal handed up to settle in the box-seat when Universal Union went forward to lead at the 950m, responded three deep to reclaim the lead 160m out and just held on for the win. Universal Union went forward from a wide alley to lead at the 950m, cornered a length on top and grudgingly gave way. Plunged late, Celestial Smile settled two off the rails with cover in midfield, swung the final bend six deep and finished nicely under a light weight to make it a blanket finish despite a rise in grade. He remains one to follow but is likely crying out for a mile. Jung Gong made his run three deep with cover behind midfield, swung the final bend with three wider out and ran on all right to inject some value into the Quartet despite an unfavourable pace. Wah May Baby plugged away four deep without menacing after making his run effectively one-out, one-back. Marvel Tribe was yielding ground 200m out after going forward to park second in the run from a wide gate. He's better ridden with patience. Archippus and Ultimate Glory were never factors after being forced very wide at the 600m by Comeback Kid, who clipped heels and hit the turf.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (139)-WOODPECKER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Metres

After being loaded, MODERN TSAR became fractious.

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

COMEBACK KID ran out abruptly at the start, resulting in ARCHIPPUS being checked and bumping heavily with UNIVERSAL UNION which shifted out, resulting in JUN GONG and ULTIMATE GLORY being hampered.

THE SYLPH was hampered and lost ground on jumping due to MODERN TSAR shifting out despite the efforts of its rider.

Shortly after the start, HO LEE HORSE and MODERN TSAR bumped.

From the outside barrier, GREAT STORM was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1250 Metres, CELESTIAL SMILE became unbalanced after being bumped by BOTH SURE which shifted out.

Making the turn near the 900 Metres, COMEBACK KID was bumped by THE SYLPH which got it head up when proving very difficult to settle and racing close to the heels of HO LEE HORSE.

For some distance after this, THE SYLPH continued to prove very difficult to settle and near the 800 Metres raced in restricted room between HO LEE HORSE and COMEBACK KID after improving into tight running between those horses.

When proving very difficult to settle, MODERN TSAR shifted out when being checked away from the heels of WAH MAY BABY passing the 800 Metres.

Near the 750 Metres, JUN GONG had to be shifted out abruptly away from behind CELESTIAL SMILE after racing very close to the heels of that horse.

GREAT STORM, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

Approaching the 700 Metres, ARCHIPPUS got its head up when being checked away from the heels of THE SYLPH.

Near the 300 Metres, BOTH SURE was steadied away from the heels of CELESTIAL SMILE (J Moreira) which shifted in.

J Moreira was advised to exercise more care.

Over the final 100 Metres, THE SYLPH lay out under pressure.

Over the concluding stages, PRINCIPAL and CELESTIAL SMILE raced tight.

Throughout the race, BOTH SURE travelled wide and without cover.

The Stewards adjourned an inquiry into the reason for COMEBACK KID (A Suborics) falling near the 650 Metres until a time and date to be finalised due to A Suborics being transported to hospital.

When COMEBACK KID fell, ARCHIPPUS and ULTIMATE GLORY were both severely hampered in consequence.

A veterinary inspection of COMEBACK KID immediately following the race revealed the horse had bled from both nostrils.

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

CELESTIAL SMILE, PRINCIPAL and UNIVERSAL UNION were sent for sampling.
