Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Hang's Decision travelling fore of midfield and one off the fence, rounded the final bend four deep and quickened nicely to get up in the final 10m for a maiden win at his seventh start. Lyric Ace enjoyed an easy time on the lead, turned the final bend two lengths on top and was out on his feet in the last 50m. Modern Fortune ran on nicely with two wider out after a one-off run worse than midfield to grab a placing 50m out despite a return to the turf. Multiexpress kept plugging away after enjoying a box-seat run to edge France Valour for a Quartet spot. France Valour rallied reasonably well four deep on straightening after a rail's run travelling behind midfield in a pleasing effort with blinkers. He's crying out for a longer trip. Argentum travelled third from the rear, swung the final bend six deep and ran on steadily despite drifting out under pressure. Spitfire was handy in the run without cover, rounded the final bend near six deep and was only one-paced over the final 150m. Happy Champion only got by a few runners after making his run second from the rear. Peace Combination was stopping 250m out after stalking the speed one off the fence in second.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (322)-PERCIVAL HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

STRATUM POWER began only fairly.

FRANCE VALOUR was crowded for room on jumping between LYRIC ACE and HANG'S DECISION which shifted out.

From the outside barriers, ARGENTUM and HAPPY CHAMPION were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

At the 900 Metres, after initially being awkwardly placed close to the heels of SGT ROCK which shifted in, ARGENTUM then got its head on the side and shifted in abruptly away from that horse, resulting in STRATUM POWER losing ground when crowded for room.

Approaching the 400 Metres, PLENTY OF SPEED shifted in away from HANG'S DECISION, brushed the running rail and became unbalanced.

Approaching the 200 Metres, ARGENTUM was shifted out away from the heels of PEACE COMBINATION which was giving ground.

Passing the winning post, HANG'S DECISION shifted in abruptly.

Throughout the race, SPITFIRE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of PEACE COMBINATION, N Callan stated that his mount became stirred up behind the barriers and then on jumping lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently began only fairly.

He said however that PEACE COMBINATION was able to recover lost ground in the early stages without having to be ridden along and he was able to shift in to race just behind the lead shortly after entering the Back Straight.

He said PEACE COMBINATION travelled fairly until placed under pressure approaching the 400 Metres.

He said after giving a limited response rounding the Home Turn, PEACE COMBINATION then gave ground noticeably in the Straight and was disappointing in the manner in which it weakened out of the race.

He added after the race PEACE COMBINATION appeared sound in its action.

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

The performance of PEACE COMBINATION, a favourite for tonight's race, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, PEACE COMBINATION will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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