Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed Apache Pass defied a deep run without cover in midfield from the 800m to overhaul True Legend 50m out for a second straight win with a return to the dirt despite a rise in class. He's now put it all together and looks like he can win again on this surface. True Legend found one too smart after straightening two lengths on top clearing to the front from a wide draw 1,100m out. He's always a chance if allowed to get his own way in front. Ultra Express ran on well to grab third close to home after switching inside for a clear run 200m out following a patient ride towards the rear from gate 13. He was able to get on track after an out-of-character effort last start. King's Capital just failed to place after a wide with cover run behind midfield. It was another honest performance but he has trouble winning at this level. Champion Dragon stayed on all right after a rails run better than midfield trying the dirt for the first time. He's finished around the mark in three of four starts but will need to take his game to a new level if he wishes to win. Early favourite Sight Spirit was gone 200m out after chasing the speed two-to-three deep without cover from a tricky gate. He had an excuse but is better on the turf.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (422) - ORCHID HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Meters

Just prior to the start being effected, BEAR SLAM became fractious, resulting in the horse beginning awkwardly and losing ground.

ROYAL PRIDE stumbled at the start.

SIGHT SPIRIT shifted out at the start and brushed KING'S CAPITAL.

SIGHT SPIRIT then became unbalanced as a result of being bumped by ELITE PATCH which shifted out.

TURIN REDSTAR, which was standing awkwardly, lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and consequently lost ground.

Then for the majority of the race, TURIN REDSTAR travelled wide and without cover.

From the outside barriers, AMAZING CHOCOLATE, ULTRA EXPRESS and ROMANTIC COMBO were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

APACHE PASS was left racing wide and without cover near the 900 Metres.

ROYAL PRIDE had some difficulty obtaining clear running passing the 100 Metres.

When questioned, V Borges was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of SIGHT SPIRIT which was having its first race start on the All Weather Surface today.

He said from barrier 8 he was asked to obtain a forward position and try to attempt to obtain a trailing position behind the leaders if possible.

He said in the early stages SIGHT SPIRIT was left racing wide and without cover and for this reason he allowed the horse to improve its position near the 1100 Metres to race outside the lead after the 1000 Metres.

He said in the early and middle stages SIGHT SPIRIT travelled well and he anticipated that the horse would be able to finish the race off strongly, however, passing the 600 Metres he commenced to ride his mount along as SIGHT SPIRIT was not quickening as well as anticipated.

He said APACHE PASS was able to improve its position around SIGHT SPIRIT easily passing the 500 Metres and after this, despite being ridden out in the Straight, SIGHT SPIRIT did not respond to his riding and was very disappointing in the manner in which it weakened out of the race over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of SIGHT SPIRIT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

C L Chau, the rider of ELITE PATCH, which finished tailed out, was not able to offer any explanation for the performance of the horse.

He said ELITE PATCH travelled keenly in the early and middle stages, however, gave ground abruptly after being placed under pressure prior to the Home Turn.

A veterinary inspection of ELITE PATCH immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of ELITE PATCH was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, ELITE PATCH 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 TURIN REDSTAR, BEAR SLAM and ROMANTIC COMBO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

APACHE PASS and TRUE LEGEND were sent for sampling.
