Recap by phillip woo

Pearl Win was gifted the front to himself with Sparkling Sword missing the kick, cornered two lengths on top and kept finding to land a betting plunge. Massive Power pressed forward from a wide gate to sit second in the run, straightened three deep and stayed on gamely to just hold Leowl for second. Leowl had his chance following a boxseat run. He needs a claimer's allowance. Laughing Lord stayed on a non-threatening fourth following a one-out, one-back run. Hit A Home Run was the best of the backmarkers when making ground three deep after travelling third from the rear. The pace was too slow. Gold Talent made some ground widest out without threatening following a one-off run travelling worse than midfield. Pompadour only held his ground following a rails run in midfield. Favourite Apache Spirit was left without cover the entire trip settling fore of midfield, swung the final bend with one wider out and was only one-paced. Griffindor made only a mild bid after switch into the open with one wider out at the 250m following a slow break. Sparkling Sword was a non-factor travelling second from the rear after a tardy break. Precisioncraftsman was withdrawn at the gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (576)-MORRISON HILL ROAD HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

After being loaded, PRECISIONCRAFTSMAN became very fractious, reared and then lunged at the front gates.

PRECISIONCRAFTSMAN was removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said the horse had sustained a wound to the outside of the left front cannon and as such was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, PRECISIONCRAFTSMAN was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, PRECISIONCRAFTSMAN will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

As the start was effected, GRIFFINDOR became very fractious, resulting in the horse being slow to begin.

Before being allowed to race again, GRIFFINDOR will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

POMPADOUR was crowded for room on jumping between GOLD TALENT and LEOWL which shifted out.

From a wide barrier, GOOD CHOICE was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

At the 1100 Metres, GOLD TALENT was checked away from the heels of LAUGHING LORD which got its head up and proved difficult to settle when awkwardly placed behind MASSIVE POWER.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, APACHE SPIRIT was steadied away from the heels of LAUGHING LORD which shifted out momentarily when continuing to prove difficult to settle.

Apprentice K K Chiong (SPARKLING SWORD) advised that it had been intended for the horse to be ridden in a forward position.

She said SPARKLING SWORD was standing well in the barriers until the hood was removed at which time the horse became fractious and as the start was effected sat back, resulting in it being slow to begin.

She said as there were a considerable number of horses in advance of SPARKLING SWORD which was racing to the inside of GRIFFINDOR, it was not available for her to recover lost ground and consequently SPARKLING SWORD was obliged to race back in the field.

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

When questioned, N Rawiller stated that after being left racing wide and without cover near the 1200 Metres, he considered allowing APACHE SPIRIT to improve its position near the 1100 Metres.

He said however that shortly after the 1100 Metres LAUGHING LORD, which was racing inside and in advance of APACHE SPIRIT, commenced to prove difficult to settle and momentarily shifted away from the heels of MASSIVE POWER.

He said at this time he felt that LAUGHING LORD would shift in to a three wide positon due to the manner in which it was travelling which would allow APACHE SPIRIT the opportunity to obtain cover behind that horse and therefore he elected not to allow APACHE SPIRIT to stride forward.

He said however that LAUGHING LORD was able to shift back in behind MASSIVE POWER near the 1000 Metres which left his mount again racing three wide and without cover.

He added at this time the tempo commenced to increase and he felt that the opportunity to go forward had passed and therefore he elected to keep APACHE SPIRIT balanced albeit that the horse was required to continue racing wide and without cover.

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

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

APACHE SPIRIT, PEARL WIN and MASSIVE POWER were sent for sampling.
