Recap by phillip woo

Imperial Champion settled one off the fence ahead of midfield, rallied five deep when straightening and got up 80m out for the win. Super Abundante was effectively in the one-out, one-back spot, made his move coming into the final bend, hit the front 150m out and found one too good on the evening. General Iron eased back after going forward early on from a wide gate to travel deep with cover in midfield, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished well for a placing. He'll be winning soon. Favourite Shadowfaxe was only good enough for fourth following a handy run along the rails. Thor The Greatest gradually faded after stalking the leader Brillante along the inside. It was an improved run by Argentum, who made some ground five deep in the drive after travelling second from the rear. Late-fancied newcomer Both Lucky made a mild bid near the inside after a one-off run worse than midfield. Seasons Star made some ground out wide without menacing after travelling at the tail of the field from a wide gate. Brillante faded 100m out after setting a genuine pace. Smart Declaration covered ground from a tricky gate near the back and was never a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six:( 668)-THE CRICKET CLUB VALLEY STAKES (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1000Metres

FAST MARVEL began awkwardly and lost ground.

ARGENTUM began only fairly.

SUPER ABUNDANTE and SHADOWFAXE were crowded for room on jumping between IMPERIAL CHAMPION and THOR THE GREATEST which shifted out.

SMART DECLARATION began awkwardly, shifted in abruptly and made heavy contact with BOTH LUCKY, causing that horse to be hampered.

Near the 800 Metres, SHADOWFAXE, which was being shifted across to obtain a trailing position behind SUPER ABUNDANTE, was checked as a result of SUPER ABUNDANTE shifting out marginally when being steadied to allow BRILLANTE to cross.

FAST MARVEL, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

Throughout the race, FREE NOVEMBER travelled wide and without cover and made the first turn after the 600 Metres awkwardly.

Approaching the 50 Metres, BOTH LUCKY, which was closing off the race well, was obliged to shift to the inside of the heels of THOR THE GREATEST, however, approaching and passing the finishing line was steadied due to THOR THE GREATEST shifting in marginally.

When questioned, A Suborics stated that, as opposed to recent starts when SMART DECLARATION had drawn favourably, from its awkward barrier tonight, he had been asked to ride the horse more conservatively as it was anticipated that the race would be run at a fast tempo in the early stages.

He said after settling behind midfield in a three wide position with cover, SMART DECLARATION did not respond to his riding and proved disappointing.

He further stated that, in his opinion, SMART DECLARATION appeared to be better suited when ridden nearer to the speed.

A veterinary inspection of SMART DECLARATION immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of FREE NOVEMBER and BRILLANTE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SHADOWFAXE, IMPERIAL CHAMPION and SUPER ABUNDANTE were sent for sampling.
