Recap by phillip woo

Victory Magic settled fourth from the rear as the race changed complexion mid-race, swung the final bend with one wider out and let down nicely to take control 250m out for an overdue win in record time after six minor placings. Ambitious Champion just outfinished Mr Gnocchi five deep to finish a distant second after travelling third from the rear. Mr Gnocchi finished nicely widest out after travelling second from the rear and three deep. Basic Trilogy plugged on following a one-off run settling fore of midfield to grab a Quartet spot. Renaissance Art found a prominent spot along the fence when Savvy Nature strode to the front 1,100m, straightened three deep and kept grinding away without menacing. Favourite Giovanni Caneletto was in traffic and never properly tested in the straight drive following a rails run in midfield. Bubble Chic led at one point until handing up to Savvy Nature, reclaimed the front soon after straightening and was plodding over the final 200m. Savvy Nature had nothing left in the tank at the 250m after clearing to the front 1,100m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (534)-GUILDFORD HANDICAP - Class 2 - 2200Metres

On entering the track, RENAISSANCE ART made contact with a rail.

On arrival at the Start, RENAISSANCE ART was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said that after the necessary consultations the horse was suitable to race.

ENSURING and RENAISSANCE ART were crowded for room on jumping between VICTORY MAGIC and SAVVY NATURE which shifted out.

From the outside barrier, MR GNOCCHI was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, AMBITIOUS CHAMPION was slow to muster speed.

Approaching the 1700 Metres, BASIC TRILOGY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of RENAISSANCE ART.

After the 1500 Metres, AMBITIOUS CHAMPION commenced to prove difficult to settle and got its head up for some distance when awkwardly placed close to the heels of GIOVANNI CANALETTO.

After being left racing wide and without cover after the 1500 Metres, SAVVY NATURE (M Chadwick) was allowed to improve its position into the lead.

After the race, M Chadwick stated that his saddle shifted forward prior to the 1500 Metres and for this reason he allowed the horse to improve.

After the 1200 Metres, ENSURING was left racing wide and without cover.

AMBITIOUS CHAMPION was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

HARBOUR MASTER was unable to obtain clear running until prior to the 200 Metres and then after the 100 Metres was unable to continue improving when racing behind RENAISSANCE ART and between BUBBLE CHIC and GIOVANNI CANALETTO.

Close to the finishing line, GIOVANNI CANALETTO was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BASIC TRILOGY.

After the race, J Moreira stated that he had to niggle at GIOVANNI CANALETTO in the middle stages to maintain its position when it was racing on the rail onside other runners.

He said in the Straight GIOVANNI CANALETTO finished off the race only one-paced and, in his opinion, was disappointing.

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

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