Recap by phillip woo

Citron Spirit finished strongly after straightening last and widest out to get up 100m out for another win this campaign. He's in the form of his life and was threatening to score in his past three starts. Victory Boys closed nicely when a gap finally opened up between runners approaching the 200m to get up from near last to fill the Quinella spot. He's as honest as the day is long. Insayshable just got up for third after saving ground worse than midfield on the fence. It was another genuine effort but he's likely on or near his mark. Super Chic came up one-paced over the last 100m after making his move one from the outside entering the straight following a midfield run. Like the latter, he might have limited upside off his current mark. Firming favourite Turin Redstar came up flat following a prominent run on the fence. He didn't get the trip. Circuit Glory was only plodding over the final 150m after dictating the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (509) - THE HAPPY VALLEY VASE (HANDICAP) - Class 1 - 1800Meters

CHARITY GO began awkwardly and shortly after the start shifted out and bumped RUTHVEN.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, INSAYSHABLE was steadied away from the heels of TURIN REDSTAR which was racing tight inside CHARITY GO.

INSAYSHABLE was then awkwardly placed behind TURIN REDSTAR for a short distance.

After the 1200 Metres, CHARITY GO got its head up when racing keenly and awkwardly placed behind RUTHVEN.

Approaching the 250 Metres, VICTORY BOYS was momentarily held up for clear running behind RUTHVEN which shifted out marginally when commencing to give ground.

After the race, S de Sousa reported that TURIN REDSTAR travelled satisfactorily in the early stages, however, came under pressure after the 700 Metres at which time he had to ride his mount along with some urgency.

He said TURIN REDSTAR briefly responded to his riding, however, again came under heavy pressure rounding the Home Turn and then was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race.

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

A veterinary inspection of CIRCUIT GLORY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

TURIN REDSTAR, CITRON SPIRIT and VICTORY BOYS were sent for sampling.
