Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed late, Coolceleb drew clear for a convincing win after showing a nice spring in his foot to quickly lead from gate six. He relished a return to the dirt and is now unbeaten in two rides under Zac Purton. Newcomer Winning Brew was no match for the winner but closed well travelling one off in midfield after a sluggish start to grab second near the 100m. It was a smart debut and he appears to have a nice future ahead of him. Little Thunder stayed on well for a placing after having to switch off the heels of Blotting Paper for a clear run 200m out following a rail run in midfield. Sam's Love finished nicely down the outside to fill the frame after being hard ridden and under the whip to stay in touch at the rear. Blotting Paper only plodded following a prominent run on the fence. It was a better run following a downgrade and switch to the dirt at his seventh start. Yichun Blitz made some ground without menacing after a patient ride second from the rear.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (690) - SHEARWATER HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

GRACIOUS RYDER and WINNING BREW were crowded for room on jumping between YICHUN BLITZ and BLOTTING PAPER, both of which shifted ground.

LITTLE THUNDER shifted out at the start and bumped PRECIOUS SWEETIE.

KING'S TROOPER was crowded for room on jumping between DOLLAR REWARD and FOR FUN'S SAKE which shifted out.

GOLDEN MISSION stumbled at the start.

Near the 750 Metres, KING'S TROOPER was steadied away from the heels of FOR FUN'S SAKE (V Borges) which shifted in when not quite clear.

V Borges was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

At the entrance to the Straight, GRACIOUS RYDER was brushed by YICHUN BLITZ which shifted to the outside of DOLLAR REWARD.

For a short distance after this, YICHUN BLITZ and GRACIOUS RYDER raced tight.

Close to the finishing line, A Hamelin (SAM'S LOVE) lost the use of his whip.

After passing the winning post, COOLCELEB became unbalanced in its action.

A veterinary inspection of COOLCELEB immediately following the race found that horse to be distressed and unbalanced behind.

Before being allowed to race again, COOLCELEB will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Throughout the race, DOLLAR REWARD travelled wide and without cover.

The performance of KING'S TROOPER, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, KING'S TROOPER will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of C Schofield (YICHUN BLITZ), 6th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horse's finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels all the way to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

When questioned, Apprentice C Wong stated that after riding his mount along in the early stages to take up a forward position, LITTLE THUNDER travelled only fairly.

He said approaching the 700 Metres LITTLE THUNDER was racing between BLOTTING PAPER and KING'S TROOPER and making the turn near the 650 Metres LITTLE THUNDER was reluctant to maintain its position between those horses which resulted in it losing ground and KING'S TROOPER being able to shift in from a three wide position to be racing in front of LITTLE THUNDER.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that YICHUN BLITZ had bled from both nostrils.

Also after the race, the Veterinary Surgeon reported that when being walked back to the stabling area, GRACIOUS RYDER became distressed.

Before being allowed to race again, GRACIOUS RYDER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

COOLCELEB and WINNING BREW were sent for sampling.
