Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Sparkling Sword stalked the leader Spirit Soaring one off the fence, wore that one down to lead 100m out and just held off the late surge of Kitaya for the win. Kitaya was posted without cover in third for a majority of the race from a wide gate and kept on nicely five deep to make it a thriller on the line. He'll be winning shortly. Rock The Tree settled one off the fence in fifth, swung the final bend with two wider out and ran down Spirit Soaring in deep stretch for a placing. Spirit Soaring set a steady clip on the lead, cornered nearly a length on top and grudgingly gave way in the run to the wire. Oxford Charley travelled with cover three deep in midfield, peeled widest upon straightening and ran on steadily without menacing. Go-Getter was only one-paced four deep in the drive to the wire following a box-seat run. Backbench Blues was only plodding after travelling behind midfield and one off the fence. Telephatia switched into the clear with one wider out after travelling fourth from the rear and only held his ground when asked for an effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (049)-MAGNOLIA HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Metres

TRIPLE KING began only fairly.

From wide barriers, MEDIC MASTER and NEW SPEED AHEAD were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

GO-GETTER shifted out at the start and bumped TELEPHATIA.

Near the 1150 Metres, TRIPLE KING shifted out and was awkwardly placed inside the heels of ROCK THE TREE.

KITAYA travelled wide and without cover until the 600 Metres.

KITAYA lost its left front plate at the entrance to the Straight.

K C Leung was fined $5,000 for breaching Stewards' Instruction 22(3) in that he used his whip to excess on MEDIC MASTER when that horse was clearly out of contention A veterinary inspection of TELEPHATIA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SPARKLING SWORD and KITAYA were sent for sampling.
