Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on Exultant drove forward to sit outside the leader Time Warp at the 1,200m, advanced to the front 350m out and had enough left in the tank to hold off stablemate Furore to add the prestigious QE II Cup to his sterling resume. Punted late Furore finished nicely after a prominent run to make it close in the end. He's an improved runner after joining the Tony Cruz yard. Eagle Way came from near the back down the outside to fill a placing but was well behind the top pair. It was a good effort but he's beyond his better days. Well-backed late Playa Del Puente came from last against six others to fill the frame. It wasn't a bad performance against the top middle-distance performers at set weights. Time Warp was stopping 200m out after getting a relatively easy time in front. He was likely over the top after stealing the Gold Cup last time out. Glorious Dragon was disappointing after a one-out, one-back run. He's at his best when ridden for luck.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (609) - THE FWD QEII CUP - Class G1 - 2000Meters

From the outside barrier, PLAYA DEL PUENTE was steadied and shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Rounding the Home Turn, TIME WARP shifted out and bumped EXULTANT.

Passing the 200 Metres, PLAYA DEL PUENTE was shifted out away from the heels of TIME WARP which was giving ground.

For the majority of the race, ELUSIVE STATE travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, J Moreira (TIME WARP) stated that after being pressured by EXULTANT in the middle stages, he then had to ride his mount aggressively from the 600 Metres to maintain his position inside EXULTANT.

He said rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight TIME WARP was able to maintain its position, however, commenced to weaken passing the 300 Metres and then gave ground over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of TIME WARP immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

EXULTANT and FURORE were sent for sampling.
