Recap by phillip woo

Post-time favourite Mordicus never looked back after being hustled to lead from gate two. He's always promised and appears from this run to be over his soundness issues. Specked late, Money Winner closed off well near the inside to grab second in the late stages after travelling fourth from the rear in his best performance from four starts. He's returned looking a more complete runner and might be able to get away with a race soon. Early favourite None Other only plodded to just hold third after a box-seat run. Hopefully, the old-timer can come on for this run. Rewarding Flyer made some ground after settling behind midfield from a wide gate to just miss placing. He's gone well in both starts this term but doesn't have much upside off his current mark. Indigenous Star made a mild bid from the rear of the field. He needs a longer trip.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (37) - CUCKOO HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

LIGHTNING MISSILE, which proved difficult to load, will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test before being allowed to race again.

MY HONEY was crowded for room on jumping between MORDICUS which was taken out by NONE OTHER and MONEY WINNER which shifted in.

In this incident, MONEY WINNER became unbalanced after being bumped by MY HONEY.

When MONEY WINNER became unbalanced, it shifted out, resulting in LIGHTNING MISSILE being momentarily crowded for room inside THE LEGEND.

From wide barriers, INDIGENOUS STAR and JOYFUL FOREVER were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1100 Metres, MY HONEY shifted out after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of NONE OTHER which resulted in MONEY WINNER and LIGHTNING MISSILE being inconvenienced.

Near the 850 Metres, INDIGENOUS STAR, which was ridden to maintain its position, was checked when briefly crowded for room inside MONEY WINNER which, after initially getting its head on the side and shifting in away from REWARDING FLYER (T Berry), was then taken in by that horse which shifted in momentarily before being directed back out.

T Berry was advised that the evidence before the Stewards was that there were a number of factors associated with this incident, however, in the opinion of the Stewards, he did allow his mount to shift in briefly inside the line of three wide and therefore he was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room for runners on his inside in future.

Passing the 800 Metres, NONE OTHER got its head up when racing close to the heels of MORDICUS.

Passing the 250 Metres, INDIGENOUS STAR was shifted out away from the heels of MY HONEY to obtain clear running after initially being disappointed for a run inside that horse.

In the Straight, MONEY WINNER raced with its head on the side when under pressure.

For the majority of the race, JOYFUL FOREVER travelled wide and without cover.

MORDICUS and MONEY WINNER were sent for sampling.
