Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Beauty Applause held off Super Wealthy for the win after hitting the front 350m out travelling nicely one off in third for a fourth win from seven starts. He'll remain in the grade off a big weight and can win again. Super Wealthy charged home late to make it close on the wire after making his run three deep with cover behind midfield. Diamond Brilliant battled on well chasing the leader Prince Of Gems on the fence. He's quite honest and it was a much better effort second-up this term. Be Ready closed off reasonably well after angling out for a clear run 250m following a midfield run on the fence. Prince Of Gems faded in front to finish next best. He's been in the mix in his three starts this term but connections should consider the Valley where his speed will be best utilized. Reel Bizzy was never a threat but was making good ground down the outside from the rear of the field. He might be looking forward to 1,400m now.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (229) - ABLE FRIEND HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

On arrival at the Start, it was noted that BEAUTY APPLAUSE had lost its left front plate.

After this plate was refitted, BEAUTY APPLAUSE was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

SUPER WEALTHY lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and then was bumped by ARDENODE which shifted out.

MAGIC SUPREME began awkwardly.

In the early stages, SHINING GEM was steadied to obtain cover from a wide barrier.

After the 1100 Metres, SUPER WEALTHY travelled keenly and was awkwardly placed outside the heels of ARDENODE when being steadied to obtain cover behind that horse.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, MAGIC SUPREME was crowded for room between ELIGERE and BLOTTING PAPER which shifted in.

After the 1000 Metres, ARDENODE got its head up on a number of occasions and travelled keenly when being steadied to obtain cover behind BEAUTY APPLAUSE.

Approaching the 900 Metres, ARDENODE got its head on the side and lay in away from the heels of BEAUTY APPLAUSE, resulting in BE READY momentarily racing in restricted room.

When being steadied to obtain cover passing the 900 Metres, SHINING GEM was awkwardly placed outside the heels of SUPER WEALTHY which shifted out away from the heels of ELIGERE.

As SHINING GEM was being shifted in, HIGH RISE SOLDIER improved quickly to be racing to the inside of that horse, resulting in HIGH RISE SOLDIER being momentarily tightened before SHINING GEM was directed back out to relieve the tightening to HIGH RISE SOLDIER.

Approaching the 250 Metres, MAGIC SUPREME, which was commencing to give ground, was steadied when crowded for room between BLOTTING PAPER and ARDENODE which got its head on the side and lay out away from BE READY.

Passing the 200 Metres, ARDENODE raced tight outside BE READY as that horse shifted out to obtain clear running.

Close to the finishing line, HIGH RISE SOLDIER was steadied away from the heels of SHINING GEM (G van Niekerk) which shifted in under pressure.

G van Niekerk was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

Also close to the finishing line, BE READY raced tight outside DIAMOND BRILLIANT.

For the majority of the race, MAGIC SUPREME travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, U Rispoli expressed concern regarding the action of ANONYMA.

A subsequent veterinary examination of that horse revealed no significant findings.

When questioned, G van Niekerk stated that after having a wide run throughout the race, he elected to balance up SHINING GEM at the top of the Straight in the hope that it would quicken well as it did at its last start when successful for him.

He said SHINING GEM did not show the same turn of foot as that of last start and for this reason he was required to commence to ride the horse along more vigorously approaching the 350 Metres.

He added SHINING GEM then finished off the race fairly.

A veterinary inspection of MAGIC SUPREME and HIGH RISE SOLDIER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BEAUTY APPLAUSE and SUPER WEALTHY were sent for sampling.
