Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Perfect To Play kept up a strong galloper after establishing a length lead at the 500m with an early move from near last at the 700m for a second win this campaign. The key was a beautiful ride from premiership leader Zac Purton. Sensationally-backed Polymer Luck came from midfield to grab second 60m out. It was a return to form off a winning mark over this trip in December and he does like a wet track. Smart Rocket kept on well for a placing settling box-seat 1,200m out after easily finding the front early on from a wide gate. Bundle Of Energy ran on to finish a distant fourth near the outside after trying to follow the move of the winner passing the 700m. He might be crying out for the 1,800m on this course. Perfect Buddy just failed to get up for a Quartet spot following a ground-saving run behind midfield. Mister Monte was stopping badly 100m out after rolling forward to lead at the 1,200m. He's hard to get right.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (699) - THE SAUTERNES CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 4 - 1650Meters

PERFECT TO PLAY, which was fractious in the barriers, began only fairly and then was steadied away from the heels of BUNDLE OF ENERGY which shifted in shortly after the start.

PERFECT TO PLAY continued to be awkwardly placed inside the heels of BUNDLE OF ENERGY, resulting in LITTLE ISLAND being inconvenienced passing the 1600 Metres.

SLEEP EDUCATION stumbled at the start.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, WONDER EXPRESS became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by GENTRY.

After passing the winning post on the first occasion, SUN SUN FA FA raced in restricted room inside BUNDLE OF ENERGY which was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PERFECT BUDDY.

Then near the 1300 Metres, SUN SUN FA FA, which was being vigorously ridden to maintain its position inside BUNDLE OF ENERGY, became unbalanced when momentarily crowded for room inside that horse which lay in marginally.

Passing the 900 Metres, SLEEP EDUCATION was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ASSOCIATION FANS which shifted out from behind SMART ROCKET.

From passing the 450 Metres, ASSOCIATION FANS got its head on the side and lay in.

Passing the 450 Metres, LITTLE ISLAND raced tight outside SUN SUN FA FA which raced tight to the outside of PERFECT BUDDY as that horse improved to the outside of POLYMER LUCK.

A veterinary inspection of SLEEP EDUCATION, GENTRY and WONDER EXPRESS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

PERFECT TO PLAY and POLYMER LUCK were sent for sampling.
