Recap by phillip woo

Unicron Jewellery just got up in the last stride to snatch victory from Not Usual Talent after slotting in one-off in midfield at the 1,200m. He had been knocking on the door in his past six starts so victory was not a surprise with Zac Purton steering for the first time. Not Usual Talent just lost out after hitting the front 100m out following a deep run beyond midfield. He'll be scoring shortly after seconds in back-to-back runs over this trip. Earth Trilogy came home a close third after copping a bad check when trying to go underneath leader Cordyceps at the 200m following a midfield run. Witness Hunter just failed to place following a prominent run on the fence. It was a better effort at his third run in the grade and there's likely more to come from the three-year-old. Beauty Spirit grudgingly gave way after prompting the pace from a wide gate. Cordyceps knocked up 50m out after rolling forward from a wide gate to eventually lead approaching the 1,100m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eleven: (488) - PRIMULA HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600Meters

SUPER GIANT shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of GREAT TREASURE.

When being steadied to be shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier, SUPER HERO was directed away from the heels of BEAUTY SPIRIT on jumping when that horse was taken out by CORDYCEPS.

From the outside barrier, HOME RUN was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, NOT USUAL TALENT got its head up and became badly unbalanced when bumped by SMART PATCH which shifted out marginally.

After the 1100 Metres, EVER LAUGH was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 1000 Metres, SMART PATCH and NOT USUAL TALENT raced tight.

After the 500 Metres, EARTH TRILOGY got its head up when very awkwardly placed behind WITNESS HUNTER.

EARTH TRILOGY was then shifted out to obtain clear running in the early part of the Straight and after the 400 Metres was shifted to the inside of WITNESS HUNTER to continue improving.

Then near the 200 Metres, EARTH TRILOGY was checked when disappointed for running inside CORDYCEPS.

Near the 150 Metres, EVER LAUGH was awkwardly placed outside the heels of BEAUTY SPIRIT which shifted out under pressure.

Close to the finishing line, CORDYCEPS got its head on the side and lay out towards WITNESS HUNTER and consequently was not able to be fully ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

A veterinary inspection of XIANG BAI QI and CORDYCEPS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

CORDYCEPS, UNICRON JEWELLERY and NOT USUAL TALENT were sent for sampling.

6 March 2019 Happy Valley Racemeeting a.

Race 4 (473) The Stewards today interviewed S de Sousa regarding the injury which led to him being stood down from riding at the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 6 March 2019 after Race 4.

S de Sousa stated that in Race 2 he became unbalanced after ALL BEST FRIENDS was bumped heavily by HERO TIME.

He said after this he felt some minor discomfort but was able to continue riding.

He said in this race when MR DARTHVEGAR began very awkwardly, it resulted in him again feeling some further discomfort during the race but nothing which restricted him in his riding out of that horse.

He said MR DARTHVEGAR experienced difficulty obtaining clear running for the majority of the Straight when he attempted to improve inside CURLING LUXURY where there was tight room.

He said although he was not able to test MR DARTHVEGAR in the Straight, this was not due to the subsequent lower back pain that he experienced on pulling up on MR DARTHVEGAR after the race.

B.

Race 6 (475) When questioned regarding his riding of YOU HAVE MY WORD in the Straight, T H So stated that at the entrance to the Straight he shifted YOU HAVE MY WORD in to follow HELENE CHARISMA through as he expected this horse would finish off the race.

He said after riding his mount hard after the 200 Metres, YOU HAVE MY WORD commenced to shift out towards RED ELYSEES which was positioned to the outside of YOU HAVE MY WORD.

He said for this reason he put the whip away on YOU HAVE MY WORD and straightened his mount before resuming riding it out over the final 100 Metres.
