Recap by phillip woo

Great Treasure came from second last and widest out at the top of the straight to grab victory 120m out. He had been off his game of late but was suited by the race tempo to notch a fifth career win over this trip. Chiu Chow Kid rattled home late after straightening last to grab second in deep stretch to cap a huge Quinella pay out. He's had a good campaign and enjoyed a short little break. Gift Of Lifeline went to the line nicely to fill a placing despite a handy run without cover the entire trip. He's lived up to some good Valley form and has room to head higher. Newcomer King's Race stayed on well near the inside to inject further value into the Quartet following a midfield run. Intrepic peaked on his move 100m out from near the back. It was another honest effort. Care Free Prince faded 100m out after rolling forward to lead 1,200m out from a wide gate. Irish Vega wasn't properly tested over the final 150n following a deep run with cover in midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (746) - ON LAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Meters

VICTORY IN HAND began very awkwardly and made contact with IRISH VEGA.

INTREPIC began only fairly and then along with GREAT TREASURE were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1200 Metres, RELENTLESS ME was steadied away from the heels of FLYING TIGER HERO which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of VICTORY IN HAND.

At the 1100 Metres, KING'S RACE was hampered when momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of FLYING TIGER HERO.

On the first turn near the 900 Metres, ONE STEP AHEAD got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of KING'S RACE.

BEAUTY LOYAL, which was following and travelling keenly, was checked in consequence.

GIFT OF LIFELINE was left racing wide and without cover at the 850 Metres.

Approaching the 600 Metres, BEAUTY LOYAL commenced to prove difficult to settle and was severely checked away from the heels of ONE STEP AHEAD.

RELENTLESS ME had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Over the final 200 Metres, VICTORY IN HAND hung in under pressure and proved difficult to ride.

Over the concluding stages, IRISH VEGA was awkwardly placed inside the heels of INTREPIC and as a consequence was not able to be ridden out all the way to the finishing line.

The Stewards deferred the declaration of weighed-in whilst they considered if BEAUTY LOYAL had been afforded a fair start.

Evidence was taken from Jockey Z Purton and Starter, Mr A Speechley.

After taking evidence from both parties and after viewing the official videos, it was established that after being one of the last horses loaded into the barriers, BEAUTY LOYAL was assisted by a starting gate handler at its head and also by another attendant who assisted by giving the horse a tail and stood satisfactorily.

It was further established that as the start was effected, BEAUTY LOYAL became fractious and consequently was slow to begin.

As the Stewards formed the opinion that BEAUTY LOYAL had not had an unfair start, the horse was deemed to be a runner.

Nonetheless the Stewards will establish the reasons for BEAUTY LOYAL being assisted by a starting gate handler at the horse's tail when this was not as had been requested by Trainer A S Cruz.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that after missing the start, BEAUTY LOYAL was able to make up some ground and settled just behind midfield in the early stages.

He said when the tempo slowed on the first turn near the 900 Metres, BEAUTY LOYAL was checked away from the heels of ONE STEP AHEAD and then approaching the 600 Metres reacted adversely to the slowing of the tempo and was again severely checked away from the heels of ONE STEP AHEAD.

He said after shifting BEAUTY LOYAL out in the early part of the Straight, he noted there was an opportunity to improve to the inside of THE CREATETH, however, after improving inside that horse by the 300 Metres, there was no run which then presented itself in advance of BEAUTY LOYAL.

He said as he was well-established inside THE CREATETH, it was too late a stage to restrain his mount and shift to the outside of that horse.

He added as BEAUTY LOYAL was not stretching out comfortably and as BEAUTY LOYAL was well out of contention, he eased it down over the latter stages.

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

A veterinary inspection of THE CREATETH and RELENTLESS ME immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BEAUTY LOYAL, GREAT TREASURE and CHIU CHOW KID were sent for sampling.
