Recap by phillip woo

Resolute edged clear after hitting the front 250m out following a prominent run on the fence for a second win this season. He had been racing well of late and made full use of gate one. Happy Tango defied a tough run sharing the lead three deep without cover to finish a clear-cut second. He's avoided a future in Class Five with two solid performances back-to-back and can break through at any moment. Thou Shall Sing ran on steadily from better than midfield to comfortably take third. It was an improved run with a return to Class Four but the big weight didn't help. Lumen Baba got going late to fill the frame after settling four back along the fence. It was a much better effort following a gear change. Sea Monarch ran on without menacing from behind midfield. He was in need of the run following a lengthy break. Firming into ridiculously short odds, Untold Riches was retreating 250m out after prompting the pace between runners. He hasn't raced since an eye-catching debut effort in September but a solid trial doesn't necessarily show up on raceday, especially as an odds-on pick.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (441) - GOLD-FUN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

THOU SHALL SING stumbled at the start.

LUMEN BABA shifted in at the start and bumped HEY PAL.

After this, LUMEN BABA was steadied to obtain cover.

A short distance after the start, UNTOLD RICHES raced tight outside HARD PROMISE which shifted out.

From wide barriers, SEA MONARCH, AMAZING KNIGHT and FA FA were all steadied to obtain cover in the early stages.

Despite being ridden along for a considerable distance in the early stages, CALIFORNIA GUNGHO failed to muster speed.

Making the first turn near the 700 Metres, HARD PROMISE, which was being vigorously ridden to maintain its position, was steadied away from the heels of UNTOLD RICHES which was racing tight inside HAPPY TANGO (J Moreira).

J Moreira was told to ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room for runners to his inside in similar circumstances.

FA FA made the turn after the 700 Metres awkwardly.

For the majority of the race, H Z TOURBILLON travelled wide and without cover and near the 500 Metres was shifted out away from the heels of HARD PROMISE as a result of that horse shifting out.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of UNTOLD RICHES, Z Purton stated that he had ridden the horse in its two barrier trials in the lead up to today's race and he was satisfied with the manner in which it finished off those trials.

He said at its most recent trial UNTOLD RICHES was inclined to lay in, but this did not cause him any concern.

He said after beginning only fairly today, he rode his mount along in the early stages and UNTOLD RICHES was able to take up a forward position.

He said whilst the race was run at a good tempo, RESOLUTE and HAPPY TANGO, which were racing to the inside and outside of UNTOLD RICHES respectively in the middle stages, were able to finish off their races, however, UNTOLD RICHES came under pressure passing the 400 Metres and then was inclined to lay in behind RESOLUTE.

He said UNTOLD RICHES then commenced to give ground and when RESOLUTE was no longer racing to the inside of his mount, UNTOLD RICHES lay in badly.

He added UNTOLD RICHES, when continuing to hang in, gave ground noticeably over the latter stages.

He said whilst UNTOLD RICHES felt comfortable in its action and that the horse's condition gave out shortly after entering the Straight, having had so long between races, he felt that the horse was disappointing in the fact that it gave ground at the entrance to the Straight.

He said after the race he could not detect any abnormalities with the horse and it appeared sound.

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

The performance of UNTOLD RICHES, favourite for today's race, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, UNTOLD RICHES 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 HARD PROMISE immediately following the race found that horse to have bled from both nostrils.

A veterinary inspection of HEY PAL immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being allowed to race again, HEY PAL will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

UNTOLD RICHES, RESOLUTE and HAPPY TANGO were sent for sampling.
