Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Zone D let down strongly to overhaul Soulmate 50m out after a patient ride fourth last from gate one. He had been knocking on the door in his opening four runs at both tracks. Soulmate kept on gamely for second after straightening near two lengths on top leading from gate 10. He's racing well. Early favourite Maldives kept grinding away to just hold third after a one-off run with cover in midfield. It was another honest effort to earn a minor placing for a third straight time but did have every chance and he might be on or close to his mark. Presence closed off reasonably well to just miss a placing after a rails run worse than midfield. He's close to a win. Veteran Surrealism nearly got up to fill the frame after making his run one off behind midfield. It was a better effort following a stable change but he is a well-exposed type. Decrypt had his chance after a rails run in midfield but came up one-paced over the last 100m. It was a slightly better effort following a downgrade. Plunged late Blastoise had his chance after a box-seat run. He was stepping out for a new stable and is better suited over a longer trip.

Race Nine: (404) - HUNG TO HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Meters

PRESENCE shifted out at the start and bumped MALDIVES.

SOULMATE began awkwardly, shifted in and inconvenienced VICTORY PARK.

After this, VICTORY PARK was steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

From the outside barrier, BEAUTY GLORY was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

In the early stages, WIN WIN FIGHTER was shifted across behind runners to obtain a position closer to the rail.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, PRESENCE raced tight inside MALDIVES which was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SMOOTHIES.

Near the 1400 Metres, SMOOTHIES momentarily raced tight inside FAST PACE which was shifted out abruptly to relieve the crowding to SMOOTHIES.

MALDIVES, which was following SMOOTHIES, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse in consequence.

Passing the 700 Metres, VICTORY PARK raced in restricted room inside BEAUTY GLORY which shifted in.

VICTORY PARK was then hampered when racing close to the heels of BEAUTY GLORY which came under pressure after the 600 Metres and commenced to give ground.

The performance of BEAUTY GLORY, which continued to give ground and which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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