Recap by phillip woo

Specked late Dances With Dragon drew clear to win in convincing fashion after hitting the front 300m out travelling fore of midfield. He's finally showing his true abilities to win four of his past six starts after joining the Caspar Fownes yard. Helene Leadingstar came from near last to snatch second in deep stretch. His form prior to coming away lame last start had been very good and he remains one to follow at 1,800m and further next season. Early favourite Furore found a couple too good after a one-out, one-back run. He wasn't good enough to give the Quinella pair 13 pounds each. Preciousship just failed to get up for a placing after a patient ride at the rear of the field. It was a good run in defeat. Southern Legend came up one-paced over the last 100m after holding the lead until the 1,150m. The big weight took its toll. Late-fancied favourite More than This had little left over the last 150m after driving forward to lead near the 1,100m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (756) - THE PREMIER PLATE (HANDICAP) - Class G3 - 1800Meters

HELENE LEADINGSTAR began awkwardly and then despite being ridden along in the early stages failed to muster speed.

From the outside barrier, HARMONY VICTORY was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Approaching and passing the 900 Metres, FURORE and SOUTHERN LEGEND raced tight.

Near the 50 Metres, SAVVY NINE was awkwardly placed outside the heels of MORE THAN THIS which shifted out.

M L Yeung (DANCES WITH DRAGON) was spoken to regarding using the whip over the concluding stages on a horse which was clearly winning.

After the race, Z Purton stated that it was intended for MORE THAN THIS to take up a more prominent position if the horse began well due to an anticipated lack of speed, however, it was not intended for MORE THAN THIS to lead.

He said MORE THAN THIS began well and he was able to take up a forward position without having to make use of his horse, however, when FURORE maintained its position inside MORE THAN THIS in the early stages, he was required to allow his mount to stride forward of that horse and into the lead after the 1200 Metres rather than covering unnecessary ground.

A veterinary inspection of SOUTHERN LEGEND, MORE THAN THIS and SAVVY NINE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
