Recap by phillip woo

In a thrilling finish, favourite Andoyas out-duelled Happy Contender over the last 100m with a move from behind midfield to get the whisker in for a first win from 15 starts. He's always promised and the step up in distance and strong pace played into his hand. He can ring up another when next stepping out over 1,800m to 2,200m. Happy Contender came from last to poke his head in front 150m out but found one just too good in the end to notch an eighth-placing without winning from 20 starts. He's overdue and is always a chance over 1,800m and further. Industrialist Way stayed on well following a midfield trip along the fence to easily take third. He's appears from his past two start on both surfaces to be near a bottom. Sharp Sailor closed off well after travelling third from the rear to fill a Quartet spot. He only tips the scales at just over 1,000m pound so the rise in weight for a last-start win did take its toll. Easy Hedge was gassed when copping a sharp bump 130m out following a box-seat run after finding the early lead from a wide gate. He's better over the 1,800m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (364)-MURRAY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 2200Metres

SHARP SAILOR, ACCLAIMED LIGHT and HAPPY CONTENDER were all steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the 1800 Metres, INDUSTRIALIST WAY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of EASY HEDGE which got its head up when being steadied in the lead.

After the 1600 Metres, JOLLY GENE was left racing wide and without cover and was allowed to improve its position outside the lead after the 1200 Metres.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, ISTANBUL BEY and JOLLY GENE raced tight as ISTANBUL BEY shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of CLOUD NINE.

Near the 950 Metres, ACCLAIMED LIGHT and HAPPY CONTENDER bumped heavily as HAPPY CONTENDER shifted out when being checked away from the heels of ANDOYAS.

Rounding the Home Turn, ANDOYAS raced tight between SHARP SAILOR and INDUSTRIALIST WAY which was shifted away from the heels of LITTERATEUR which was giving ground.

At the entrance to the Straight, SHARP SAILOR shifted out and bumped ISTANBUL BEY which became unbalanced.

Approaching the 200 Metres, INDUSTRIALIST WAY raced in restricted room inside the heels of CLOUD NINE.

Passing the 200 Metres, EASY HEDGE shifted out and made heavy contact with ANDOYAS, causing both horses to become badly unbalanced and for EASY HEDGE to be taken in onto CLOUD NINE which was checked when crowded for room.

As the Stewards were satisfied that there was no carelessness exhibited by any rider in this incident, no further action was taken.

A veterinary inspection of EASY HEDGE and ACCLAIMED LIGHT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ANDOYAS and HAPPY CONTENDER were sent for sampling.
