Recap by phillip woo

Punted late to jump a clear second favourite, Celestial Smile drove forward from a wide gate to sit second outside the leader Happy Summer at the 1,050m, straightened three deep and got up 160m out for the win with a suitable step up to the mile. Favourite Ishvara travelled one off the rails in fourth, swung the final bend five deep and got going late to just nip outsider Happy Summer for second. Happy Summer rolled forward to lead 1,200m out through moderate fractions, cornered a length on top and grudgingly gave way late in a much-improved run with a step up to the mile. Faster More rallied near the rails from behind midfield to finish a non-threatening fourth. Hit A Home Run travelled one off in midfield, swung the final bend with three wider out and made a mild bid without menacing with a step up in class and a gear change. Terrific Master sat box-seat after leading early on, loomed a chance one off at the 300m and peaked on his run 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (202)-CHEVALIER LIFTS & ESCALATORS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600Metres

WIRE TO WIRE was slow to begin.

ARCHIPPUS and ENSURING bumped heavily at the start.

WINNING INSTINCT was checked on jumping after becoming badly unbalanced when bumped by MODERN TSAR which shifted out abruptly.

After this incident, WINNING INSTINCT was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

On jumping, FASTER MORE got its head up and then was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

AMBER DRAGON, which was drawn outside FASTER MORE, was also shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching and passing the 1100 Metres, ARCHIPPUS and WINNING INSTINCT raced tight as WINNING INSTINCT attempted to shift in to obtain cover.

Passing the 1100 Metres, FASTER MORE got its head up when proving difficult to settle and awkwardly placed behind WIRE TO WIRE.

At the 400 Metres, CELESTIAL SMILE was bumped by TERRIFIC MASTER which shifted out to obtain clear running.

Near the 350 Metres, TERRIFIC MASTER and CELESTIAL SMILE again made contact due to TERRIFIC MASTER shifting out.

For the majority of the race, ENSURING and WINNING INSTINCT travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, M Chadwick stated that due to the anticipated slow tempo of the race, he had been asked to obtain a handier position than is usual on TERRIFIC MASTER but not to ride it along aggressively to do so.

He said TERRIFIC MASTER was able to obtain a forward position without having to be aggressively ridden and then travelled well with cover behind the leader HAPPY SUMMER.

CELESTIAL SMILE and ISHVARA were sent for sampling.
