Recap by phillip woo

Lady First responded well to win going away 150m out after a perfectly positioned run one off in fourth for a first local win at his 37th start. He relished a switch to the dirt after numerous top-four finishes on the turf. Early favourite So Awesome kept on gamely for second after driving forward to eventually lead one off the fence at the 800m from Skyey Supreme in a pleasing first run on the surface. He's a winner waiting to happen on either surface. Double Take ran on well to fill a placing after settling six back on the fence. It was another fine effort following a last-start win. Crown Avenue held his ground after a speed-chasing run. It was another honest effort. Red Elysees ran on steadily to finish next best without menacing the top-four following a rail run in midfield. He has the tools to win a race at this level. Post-time favourite King's Race just held his ground after travelling one-off the fence better than midfield. He's limited.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (348) - SPOONBILL HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Meters

LUMEN BABA was crowded for room on jumping between SKYEY SUPREME and KING'S RACE, both of which shifted ground.

From wide barriers, IMPECCABLE FELLOW, WEALTHY EMPLOYEE, SUN SUN FA FA and EL VALIENTE were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After being left racing wide and without cover at the 1300 Metres, SO AWESOME was allowed to improve its position to obtain the lead after the 800 Metres.

Rounding the Home Turn, DOUBLE TAKE was held up for a short distance behind RED ELYSEES.

After the 200 Metres, LONDON LUCKYSTAR was directed back to the inside of KING'S RACE when unable to improve due to that horse shifting out under pressure.

The performance of IMPECCABLE FELLOW, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

After the race, N Callan voiced concern regarding the action of LONDON LUCKYSTAR.

A veterinary inspection of LONDON LUCKYSTAR immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

A veterinary inspection of SKYEY SUPREME immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of KING'S RACE immediately following the race found that horse to have bled from both nostrils and also confirmed it to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

KING'S RACE, LADY FIRST and SO AWESOME were sent for sampling.
