Recap by phillip woo

Pakistan Friend dashed clear for an upset win after hitting the front 350m out following a one-out, one-back run. He did produce a better run last start. Shadow Breaker stuck on well for second after a handy run. Ezra came on well to fill a placing after settling third last from the widest draw. He had returned to form last month with a second on the dirt. Well-backed late, Smart Cousin got going late to fill the frame after making his run fourth from the rear It was a positive performance with a return to Class Four following a Valley win over this trip. Favourite Family Leader made ground from behind midfield to finish a non-threatening fifth. It was another honest effort. Punted late, Bundle Of Delight stayed on one-paced travelling worse than midfield. The big weight didn't help his chances after a tardy break. Yes We Can ran on late after making his run second from the rear. The return to Class Four was too much to handle.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (365) - GIANT TREASURE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Meters

From wide barriers, EZRA and YES WE CAN were shifted across behind runners soon after the start.

In the early part of the Straight, LIGHT MY DAY was awkwardly placed behind HAPPY FORTUNE which came under heavy pressure.

YES WE CAN was held up for clear running approaching and passing the 200 Metres.

YES WE CAN was then inclined to lay in when placed under pressure.

For the majority of the race, FORTUNE TRIPLE travelled wide and without cover.

The Stewards deferred the declaration of weighed-in whilst they considered if RAINBOW LIGHT had been afforded a fair start.

Evidence was taken from Jockey C Soumillon and Starter, Mr A Speechley.

After taking evidence from both parties and after viewing the official videos, it was established that as the start was effected RAINBOW LIGHT reared simultaneously and consequently missed the start by a considerable margin.

As the Stewards were satisfied that RAINBOW LIGHT had caused its own problem and had not had an unfair start, the horse was deemed to be a runner.

C Soumillon reported that the effort taken for RAINBOW LIGHT to make up lost ground in the early and middle stages then took its toll on the horse's finishing effort.

Before being allowed to race again, RAINBOW LIGHT will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial.

A veterinary inspection of RAINBOW LIGHT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse was noted to have blood in its mouth.

When questioned, A Hamelin stated that the only reason he could offer for the disappointing performance of RED ELYSEES was that the horse began only fairly and he was therefore obliged to ride it along for some distance in the early stages to take up a forward position as instructed.

He said it was not until approaching the 1200 Metres where he was able to shift in and race outside the leader HAPPY FORTUNE.

He added that RED ELYSEES came off the bridle before straightening and then was disappointing in the manner in which it weakened in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of RED ELYSEES immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on BUNDLE OF DELIGHT at the request of Trainer D J Hall.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, BUNDLE OF DELIGHT will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of LIGHT MY DAY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
