Recap by phillip woo

Newcomer Simply The Best led and kept up a strong gallop to comfortably win with plenty in hand. He lived up to his trials but clearly has talent. Sky Darci came on well three from the right after settling fifth last and nearly three-deep to grab second in the final strides. Good View Clarico kept on reasonably well after stalking the speed. He did have the benefit of a run but appears to have some raw ability. Momentum Happy stayed on without menacing travelling better than midfield. He's shown a tinge of ability in his four starts but is still a work in progress. King Dragon finished well near the inside after settling amongst the backmarkers. Specked late United We Stand came up onepaced over the final 100m following a box-seat run. He needed the outing. Judy's Star made only a mild bid from behind midfield after a sluggish start. He hasn't disgraced without failing to build on some promising griffin form in his two starts this term.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (160) - PANASHOP HANDICAP - Class 4R - 1200Meters

UNITED WE STAND began awkwardly.

KING DRAGON and TOUCH OF FAITH began only fairly.

JUDY'S STAR, which began only fairly, was bumped and crowded for room shortly after the start between MOMENTUM HAPPY and WILLFUL which was carried in by SKY DARCI which got its head on the side and shifted in despite the efforts of its rider.

After this, SKY DARCI continued to race with its head on the side and lay in despite the continued efforts of its rider.

Then approaching the 900 Metres, when continuing to lay in, SKY DARCI became unbalanced.

At this stage, JUDY'S STAR raced tight inside SKY DARCI.

APOLAR WARRIOR began awkwardly and then was bumped by VICTORY MASTERY which was taken out by GOOD VIEW CLARICO.

When being steadied to obtain cover in the early stages, RICH AND LUCKY travelled keenly.

TARGET FINDER also travelled keenly after the 1100 Metres when being steadied to obtain cover.

VICTORY MASTERY lost its left front plate in the early stages.

APOLAR WARRIOR made the turn after the 900 Metres awkwardly and then was left racing wide and without cover.

After the 800 Metres, UNITED WE STAND was awkwardly placed behind SIMPLY THE BEST (J Moreira) which, after crossing UNITED WE STAND when only just clear, was then steadied in the lead.

J Moreira was advised to ensure that he does not ease his mounts in such a manner that horses racing behind are awkwardly placed.

At the 500 Metres, APOLAR WARRIOR shifted out away from TARGET FINDER.

RICH AND LUCKY, which was following, was shifted out away from the heels of that horse in consequence and was forced wider.

Passing the 100 Metres, LUCKY MISSILE was shifted out away from the heels of UNITED WE STAND.

Throughout the race, VICTORY MASTERY travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, Z Purton was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of JUDY'S STAR.

He said JUDY'S STAR was obliged to race slightly further back in the field than had been anticipated after being hampered at the start.

He said JUDY'S STAR appeared to travel satisfactorily in the middle stages but then did not finish off the race after obtaining clear running prior to the 300 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of JUDY'S STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

JUDY'S STAR, SIMPLY THE BEST and SKY DARCI were sent for sampling.
