Recap by phillip woo

Thanksgiving handed up the front to Silver Dragon 1,200m out, reclaimed the front at the 200m and kept finding to just prevail. Silver Dragon went forward from a middle gate to lead 1,200m out, cornered a half-length on top and went down fighting. Gold Talent kept on four deep with every chance following a one-out, one-back run for a minor placing. Late-fancied favourite Spinning Dancer weaved a run near the inside after travelling at the tail of the field to just miss a placing. Strathearn was short of room along the inside in the final 100m following a rail's run in midfield. Griffindor made a steady bid three deep after going back from a wide gate to eventually settle behind midfield along the rail. Owners' Glory only held his ground with one wider out following a one-off run worse than midfield. Rock The Tree made only a mild bid after easing back to travel second from the rear. He wasn't suited by the pace and needs at least 1,800m. Early favourite Axiom never fired a shot widest out after travelling third from the rear from a wide gate. He's not reliable. Mi Savvy Boy faded after a hard run without cover fore of midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (087)-BIRCH HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

OWNERS' GLORY lost ground when crowded for room on jumping between ROCK THE TREE and GOLD TALENT which was taken out by THANKSGIVING.

From the outside barriers, SPINNING DANCER, AXIOM and GRIFFINDOR were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 1300 Metres, MI SAVVY BOY was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, TRIBAL GLORY proved difficult to settle when being steadied to allow THANKSGIVING to cross.

After the 1100 Metres, STRATHEARN got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of TRIBAL GLORY.

Making the turn near the 550 Metres, GOLD TALENT raced tight inside MI SAVVY BOY which lay in.

Approaching the 400 Metres, GRIFFINDOR and STRATHEARN raced tight as GRIFFINDOR improved into tight running between OWNERS' GLORY and STRATHEARN which was attempting to shift to the outside of TRIBAL GLORY which was commencing to give ground At the entrance to the Straight, SPINNING DANCER shifted in away from the heels of initially GRIFFINDOR and then TRIBAL GLORY to obtain clear running.

After the 100 Metres, STRATHEARN was shifted out away from the heels of SILVER DRAGON after being awkwardly placed behind that horse.

Then over the concluding stages, STRATHEARN was held up for clear running behind THANKSGIVING and because of this was not able to be properly tested.

When questioned regarding the performance of AXIOM, J Moreira stated that, from the wide barrier, he was unable to obtain a position closer than three wide throughout the race.

He said whilst AXIOM had cover, it was provided by MI SAVVY BOY which raced a fair distance in advance of AXIOM.

He said after the 800 Metres he niggled his mount along in an attempt to obtain a closer position behind MI SAVVY BOY, however, he was unable to make up the ground prior to OWNERS' GLORY shifting out near the 600 Metres.

He added he placed AXIOM under full pressure leaving the 500 Metres and the horse did not show any turn of foot, rather it closed off the race only one-paced.

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

A veterinary inspection of ROCK THE TREE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SPINNING DANCER, THANKSGIVING and SILVER DRAGON were sent for sampling.
