Recap by phillip woo

Raging favourite Able Friend was untouched the entire way and easily picked them up after travelling second from the rear to take control 100m out to make it six from seven over this course and distance. This superstar will be hard to beat over a mile anywhere on this planet. Beauty Flame was well rated on the front and found one much too classy in the end despite 22-point swing in the ratings. Rewarding Hero was handily-ridden along the rails in fifth, angled into the clear five deep at the 300m and just out-dashed Blazing Speed for third. Blazing Speed settle one off in fourth, rallied four deep upon straightening and stayed on reasonably well. He's better over a longer trip. Ambitious Dragon settled behind midfield along the rails, straightened five deep and made some ground without menacing. Gold-Fun travelled keenly on the back of the speed, had every chance along the inside upon straightening and was yielding ground 100m out in a disappointing performance. Glorious Days did have to steady from Rewarding Hero at the 300m following a one-off run in midfield and kept on evenly thereafter. All You Wish never made a bid from the back.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (344)-THE STEWARDS' CUP - Group One - 1600Metres

ALL YOU WISH was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, GOLD-FUN shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of GLORIOUS DAYS.

Near the 1500 Metres, ALL YOU WISH was momentarily crowded for room between AMBITIOUS DRAGON and ABLE FRIEND (J Moreira) which shifted in.

J Moreira was advised to exercise more care.

After the 1300 Metres, ABLE FRIEND was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GLORIOUS DAYS (M Demuro) which shifted in after being awkwardly placed outside the heels of BLAZING SPEED.

M Demuro was also advised to exercise more care.

ALL YOU WISH, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

After the 1200 Metres, REWARDING HERO was steadied away from the heels of GOLD-FUN (D Whyte) which shifted in when not properly clear.

D Whyte was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground.

Making the turn after the 900 Metres, AMBITIOUS DRAGON got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of GLORIOUS DAYS.

Near the 300 Metres, GLORIOUS DAYS was steadied away from the heels of REWARDING HERO which shifted out to obtain clear running.

Near the 100 Metres, GOLD-FUN was awkwardly placed inside the heels of BEAUTY FLAME.

Near the 50 Metres, AMBITIOUS DRAGON got its head on the side and lay in and was awkwardly placed outside the heels of BLAZING SPEED over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of GOLD-FUN immediately following the race revealed the horse to have sustained a cut to the right hind leg.

Before being allowed to race again, GOLD-FUN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

ABLE FRIEND and BEAUTY FLAME were sent for sampling.
