Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Diamond Friends got shuffled back to have two behind him at the 600m but finished strongly down the outside to mow down Equity Doctrine 40m out for the win. He was attractively rated following a stable change and can win his way out of this class. Well-backed late, Equity Doctrine wouldn't go away without a fight after assuming the lead 100m out following a deep run without cover travelling fore of midfield. It was a good effort in defeat and he'll be winning shortly on this surface. Jimson The Famous kept on gamely for a placing after getting pestered for the lead by Faithful Boy and then Happy Beauty. He's always a chance at this level. Double Point came on well from behind midfield to fill a quartet spot. He's not reliable but appears to handle both surfaces. Specked late, top-weighted Best Tango was given a lovely ride to find the fence in midfield from a wide gate but only plodded when push came to shove.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (39) - LARK HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

RHODE ASSASSIN began only fairly.

From the outside barrier, BEST TANGO was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Shortly after the start, HAPPY BEAUTY (Apprentice H T Mo), which was being ridden along in an attempt to obtain a forward position, raced tight between DRAGON BACHELOR and DOUBLE POINT which shifted in.

After this, HAPPY BEAUTY continued to be hard ridden, however, failed to muster speed in the early stages and then travelled wide and without cover until after the 900 Metres at which time the horse was able to shift in to race outside the lead.

After the race, Apprentice Mo reported that the horse weakened noticeably in the Straight after having to do a considerable amount of work to obtain a forward position as instructed.

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

FAITHFUL BOY was also ridden along in the early stages to take up a forward position, however, was slow to muster speed and travelled wide and without cover until passing the 1000 Metres.

Making the first turn after the winning post on the first occasion, DIAMOND FRIENDS was momentarily awkwardly placed between AMRITSARIA and EQUITY DOCTRINE.

After the 900 Metres, EQUITY DOCTRINE was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 250 Metres, BEST TANGO and RHODE ASSASSIN raced tight.

Passing the 100 Metres, DIAMOND FRIENDS shifted in and bumped EQUITY DOCTRINE.

B Prebble, the rider of AMRITSARIA, which was having its first start on the All Weather surface, stated that after being crossed by FAITHFUL BOY passing the 1000 Metres, AMRITSARIA became unbalanced in its action and he felt that the horse may have gone amiss.

He said however that AMRITSARIA quickly recovered and therefore he continued to ride AMRITSARIA along, however, the horse, despite being ridden along, gave ground from this point onwards.

He added, in his opinion, AMRITSARIA did not appreciate racing on the surface today at its first time of asking.

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

The performance of AMRITSARIA, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

DIAMOND FRIENDS and EQUITY DOCTRINE were sent for sampling.
