Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, Wild West Wing just wore down Super Commander after recovering from a tardy break to settle one-off in midfield for a third course and distance win at this level. He thrives in Class Four over this Valley trip. Super Commander did everything but get the win after briefly finding the front 150m out following a box-seat run. He's a winner waiting to happen over this course and distance. Faribault came from last to fill a placing close to home. He did produce a better effort. My My My was short of room late along the inside travelling behind midfield on the fence after a tardy break. He's flashed ability in three of his five starts but is still a work in progress. Happily Friends ran on without menacing settling second last from a wide draw. He rarely produces a bad run but may lack the desire to win races. Early favourite Packing Champion was on his tippy toes 150m out after working to the lead 650m out from a middle draw. He failed to build on a frontrunning third last start. Late-fancied favourite Whiskey Neat was struggling 200m out after being ridden along to hold a position one-off in second or third. He's had a lot of racing and appears to need a break.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of WHISKEY NEAT, J Moreira stated that he had to ride his mount along for a considerable distance to obtain a forward position.

He said he attempted to cross SUPER COMMANDER in the early stages and lead as instructed, however, WHISKEY NEAT, which was coming back in distance tonight, did not show sufficient speed to be able to cross SUPER COMMANDER and WHISKEY NEAT was required to race outside that horse.

He said WHISKEY NEAT did not travel well at any stage of the race and came under pressure after the 500 Metres to hold its positon.

He added after riding his mount vigorously rounding the Home Turn, WHISKEY NEAT did not respond to his riding and then was disappointing in the manner in which it weakened out of the race in the Straight.
