Recap by phillip woo

Elusive State circled the field from last to eyeball the favourite and leader 850m out, worked to the lead 350m out and edged clear for a dominant win. He got in nicely at the weights and it was a superb rid by Joao Moreira. Encore Boy came on nicely from midfield to finish a clear-cut second. It was a solid performance at his first run over the trip. Red Desert kept on well for a placing after chasing the leader on the fence. He rarely produces a bad run on this surface. Glorious Artist got going to finish a distant fourth after making his run second from the rear. He might be on his mark after back-to-back wins. Raging favourite Kings Shield had nothing left in the tank 350m out after getting pestered for the front from the 850m. The big weight took its toll. Green Luck was gone a long way out after a handy run one off the fence. He resents the dirt. Circuit Glory faded after a box-seat run. He's not good enough at this level.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (347) - EGRET HANDICAP - Class 1 - 1650Meters

ELUSIVE STATE began awkwardly.

Approaching the 800 Metres, GLORIOUS ARTIST was left racing wide and without cover.

GLORIOUS ARTIST then lay out and made the Home Turn awkwardly.

When questioned regarding the performance of KINGS SHIELD, Z Purton stated that the horse did not stretch out today and felt stiff in its action.

He said mid-race he was concerned that the horse would not close off the race given the manner in which it was travelling and, when placed under pressure well before the Home Turn, KINGS SHIELD failed to respond to his riding and was particularly disappointing.

Trainer F C Lor advised the Stewards the only excuse he could offer was that the horse may have taken some harm from its last start where it struck interference on the Home Turn.

He added however that KINGS SHIELD had appeared to come out of that race without any particular issue and had worked and done well leading into today's event.

A veterinary inspection of KINGS SHIELD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of KINGS SHIELD, favourite for today's race, was considered unacceptable.

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

A veterinary inspection of CIRCUIT GLORY immediately following the race found that horse to have bled from both nostrils.

KINGS SHIELD, ELUSIVE STATE and ENCORE BOY were sent for sampling.
