Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed late Cordyceps overhauled long-time leader Beauty Day near the 100m sitting one off in second carrying top weight to ring up a second win from his past three starts. Punted late Beauty Day did everything right but get the win with the claim well utilised. He rarely produces a bad run. Defining Moment just held on for third after a boxseat run from a good draw. He's not genuine. Packing Warrior closed well when gaining a clear run near the outside 200m out travelling behind midfield after jumping slowly.. Cot Campbell was caught up in traffic until the 200m following a midfield run on the fence and should have finished closer. Post-time favourite Bellagio came up flat over the last 150m after a tough run three deep without cover better than midfield for the most part from the widest gate. He had a legitimate excuse. Smart Patch ran on without menacing travelling three from the back. It wasn't a bad effort after winning two on the trot.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (149) - LA ESTEPHE HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600Meters

PACKING WARRIOR was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, JIMMU and VINCY were steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Despite being hard ridden for some distance in the early stages, UNICRON JEWELLERY failed to muster speed.

Passing the 700 Metres, SMART PATCH raced tight between VINCY and PACKING WARRIOR which commenced to shift out.

At the 400 Metres, SMART PATCH was bumped by PACKING WARRIOR which was held up for clear running behind CHAMPION SUPREME.

PACKING WARRIOR was then shifted to the outside of CHAMPION SUPREME passing the 350 Metres.

When questioned regarding the performance of CHAMPION SUPREME, Z Purton stated that he was able to obtain a midfield position on the horse without having to make any use of it and the horse travelled satisfactorily in the early and middle stages.

He said after shifting CHAMPION SUPREME to the outside of BELLAGIO at the entrance to the Straight, CHAMPION SUPREME did not quicken as he expected and then was disappointing in the manner in which it did not finish off the race.

He added the only explanation he could offer for CHAMPION SUPREME's disappointing run was that the horse may be better suited by being ridden from back in the field as it had previously finished off its race strongly in those circumstances.

Following the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on CHAMPION SUPREME at the request of Trainer J Moore.

The Veterinary Surgeon reported that this examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

After the race, B Shinn stated that, in his opinion, COOL TEAM did not see out the distance of today's race.

Also after the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that BEAUTY DAY had sustained a minor laceration to the right hind pastern whilst the Veterinary Surgeon reported that SMILING PRIDE was mildly lame in its right hind leg with a haematoma over its right shoulder.

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

A veterinary inspection of UNICRON JEWELLERY immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being allowed to race again, UNICRON JEWELLERY will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

BELLAGIO, CORDYCEPS and BEAUTY DAY were sent for sampling.
