Recap by phillip woo

Specked late Buddies was perfectly rated in front by Mathew Chadwick and kept kicking after straightening two lengths on top to score an upset win. He goes well second-up and performs best over this trip. Well-backed Tourbillon Diamond stayed on nicely to finish a close second after a box-seat run. He was badly handicapped but relished a step up to 1,400m off a light weight after a pleasing run on opening day over the 1,200m. Joao Moreira's choice of sticking to an inside run on the odds-on favourite Sky Darci after a rail run travelling towards the rear cost him any chance of winning as he was held up at crucial stages. He should remain a force in Group races at 1,400m and further this season. Duke Wai kept on one-paced over the last 100m tracking the leader from a tricky gate. It wasn't a bad effort up in class over a longer trip. Champion's Way got going late from near last to finish next best without menacing the top-four. He needs a stronger pace. Southern Legend came up one-paced travelling one off in midfield. He needed this run and was giving away plenty of weight all around. Might Giant faded badly after rolling forward out deep to sit second 800m out after a slow start.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (61) - THE CELEBRATION CUP (HANDICAP) - Class G3 - 1400Meters

CHAMPION'S WAY shifted out at the start and hampered RUSSIAN EMPEROR.

After this, from the outside barriers, CHAMPION'S WAY and RUSSIAN EMPEROR were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Shortly after the start, DECRYPT shifted out and brushed SKY DARCI.

After this, SKY DARCI was awkwardly placed outside the heels of DECRYPT.

Despite being aggressively ridden for a considerable distance in the early stages, MIGHTY GIANT was very slow to muster speed and then in the Straight gave ground.

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

DUKE WAI travelled keenly approaching and passing the 1200 Metres when being steadied to obtain cover.

After the 300 Metres, DUKE WAI lay in under pressure, resulting in DECRYPT being momentarily steadied away from the heels of that horse passing the 250 Metres.

Passing the 100 Metres, SKY DARCI was unable to improve into tight running between TOURBILLON DIAMOND and BUDDIES.

A veterinary inspection of SOUTHERN LEGEND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SKY DARCI, BUDDIES and TOURBILLON DIAMOND were sent for sampling.
