Recap by phillip woo

Bright Star settled fourth from the rear and one off the rails, had only one to his outside at the 300m and quickened nicely to get up in the shadows of the post for the win. Favourite Sea Ruby settled midfield along the rails, stayed to the fence upon straightening and finished nicely to make it close on the wire. Plunged late, Spurs On was ridden to share the lead along the fence with Forever Accurate, opened up a length upon straightening and was swamped in the final few strides. Flying Red settle one off midfield, swung the final bend with three wider out and ran on reasonably well to just miss a placing in a photo. Lucky Scepter made his run third from the rear and split runners four deep upon straightening to get up for a minor cheque. Silver Dragon had to steady briefly at the 100m when making a nice bid from last at the top of the straight. Laughing Lord did not lift following a handy run along the rails. A Fast One made a mild bid without ever looking a threat after travelling deep with cover behind midfield. Second favourite Forever Accurate had to steady 100m out when giving ground after vying for the lead in a weak effort with a switch to the Valley.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (367)-HUNG TO HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

SEA RUBY, which was fractious in the Parade Ring, made contact with a rail on entering the track.

On arrival at the Start, SEA RUBY was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

SEA RUBY proved difficult load and after being loaded became fractious.

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

SEA RUBY shifted in abruptly at the start and bumped LUCKY SCEPTER.

SILVER DRAGON shifted out at the start and bumped FLYING RED.

Shortly after the start, SUM WIN DRAGON was steadied away from the heels of SPEEDY LONGWAH which shifted out.

Also shortly after the start, A FAST ONE became unbalanced after being bumped by SILVER DRAGON.

A short distance later, SILVER DRAGON was steadied when crowded for room between FLYING RED and A FAST ONE which shifted out when unbalanced.

Passing the 1000 Metres, BRIGHT STAR was steadied away from the heels of FLYING RED which shifted in.

MY LEGEND lost its right hind plate passing the 900 Metres.

Approaching the 600 Metres, LUCKY SCEPTER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING RED.

At the 300 Metres, SILVER DRAGON was shifted in after being disappointed for running between A FAST ONE and BRIGHT STAR which shifted out.

Near the 250 Metres, SEA RUBY raced tight inside LAUGHING LORD which shifted to the inside of FOREVER ACCURATE.

For a short distance after this, SEA RUBY continued to race in restricted room inside LAUGHING LORD which was racing tight inside FOREVER ACCURATE.

Passing the 100 Metres, SPEEDY LONGWAH raced in restricted room between LUCKY SCEPTER and FLYING RED which shifted in marginally.

Near the 75 Metres, FOREVER ACCURATE was checked when crowded for room between LUCKY SCEPTER which shifted in after being bumped on the hindquarters by FOREVER ACCURATE and LAUGHING LORD which, after initially getting its head on the side and shifting out of its own accord, then raced tight outside SEA RUBY which was shifted to the outside of SPURS ON.

SUM WIN DRAGON, which was following FOREVER ACCURATE, was checked in consequence.

Whilst the check to FOREVER ACCURATE was one of some significance, the Stewards found that crowding was due to minimal shifts from LUCKY SCEPTER and LAUGHING LORD and that in both cases there was no carelessness exhibited by their respective riders.

Accordingly, no further action was taken.

Near the 25 Metres, LAUGHING LORD was steadied away from the heels of SEA RUBY due to both horses shifting ground.

Close to the finishing line, SEA RUBY shifted in and raced tight outside SPURS ON.

Also close to the finishing line, LUCKY SCEPTER raced tight inside FLYING RED which shifted in.

Throughout the race, MY LEGEND travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that LUCKY SCEPTER was found to be distressed.

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

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

BRIGHT STAR and SEA RUBY were sent for sampling.
