Recap by phillip woo

Speedygonzalez was beautifully positioned one off ahead of midfield with cover on the back of a good pace, rounded the final bend with two wider out and let down willingly to win going away 70m out with a return to his preferred Valley course. St Yazin bided his time near the back from the widest gate, came deepest out upon straightening and finished strongly to get the final stride in for second. Winfull Patrol made his run one-out, one-back, straightened four deep and kept up a sound gallop to the wire. Brilliant Proposal was in a duel for the front with Triumphant Jewel to his outside, shot a length clear approaching the 200m and only succumbed for a placing 50m out. It was a big effort in defeat and he won't be far off a winning run. Atacx made his run one off behind midfield, cornered five deep and ran on steadily without menacing. Favourite Ensemble handed up the front to settle in the box-seat, stayed to the rail upon straightening and only held his ground under the pump carrying top weight. Plunged late, Triumphant Jewel weakened 150m out after attacking the leader through good sections. Multiexpress didn't lift after a rail's run behind midfield. Touch Go was stopping badly passing the 200m following a three-back run along the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (226)-ASIA HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

FLYING CAPTAIN was slow to begin and shortly after the start was crowded for room between ALBICELESTE and SPEEDYGONZALEZ which shifted out after being brushed by BRILLIANT PROPOSAL.

From the outside barrier, ST YAZIN was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 750 Metres, TOUCH GO was steadied away from the heels of ENSEMBLE (J Moreira) which got its head on the side and shifted in.

J Moreira was advised to ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting in in similar circumstances.

Making the turn near the 550 Metres, FLYING CAPTAIN got its head on the side and hung out.

After the 550 Metres, SPITFIRE was left racing wide and without cover.

In the early part of the Straight, ENSEMBLE got its head on the side and lay in.

Approaching the 200 Metres, ATACX (N Callan) shifted out and bumped SPITFIRE which also shifted in slightly.

N Callan was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in future.

Over the final 150 Metres, ENSEMBLE was unable to obtain clear running inside BRILLIANT PROPOSAL and consequently was not able to be fully tested.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that he had hoped to be able to shift ENSEMBLE out at the top of the Straight, however, TRIUMPHANT JEWEL and WINFULL PATROL were racing immediately to his outside, therefore he was not able to shift his horse out.

He said as a result he elected to attempt to obtain clear running inside BRILLIANT PROPOSAL, however, he was not able to do so when awkwardly placed inside the heels of that horse.

A veterinary inspection of ENSEMBLE immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

A veterinary inspection of TOUCH GO and TRIUMPHANT JEWEL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ENSEMBLE, SPEEDYGONZALEZ and ST YAZIN were sent for sampling.
