Recap by phillip woo

Unicornbaby fought back doggedly to grab victory near the 100m after getting briefly headed by Flying Sword 250m out finding the front quickly from gate 11. Lucky Gold made it close on the wire after getting held up early straight following a one-off run better than midfield. He relished a downgrade. Punted late Flying Sword finished a head-bob away in third after moving to the lead 250m following a pace-stalking run from a wide draw. It was a return to form after opening with a win and second. Favourite Stunning Impact got going late for fourth without menacing the top three after a wide run towards the rear. He needed the run following a cannon bone injury in November. Royal Pride ran on without menacing after a wide run in midfield. He should be able to find his mark shortly in this grade. King Of The Court got going late down the outside after settling second last from the widest draw. It wasn't a bad effort. Colonel had his chance following a one-out, one-back run. He doesn't run out a strong 1,400m. Super Highway was held up for a good part of the straight after making his run one-off behind midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (587) - STANLEY GAP HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Meters

SUPER HIGHWAY began awkwardly.

SPLENDID STAR shifted out at the start and became unbalanced when awkwardly placed inside BELL OF VICTORY which on jumping was bumped by ROYAL PRIDE which shifted in.

FLYING SWORD and UNICORNBABY bumped on jumping.

From the outside barriers, SWIFT SPIRIT and KING OF THE COURT were steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the 1300 Metres, SPLENDID STAR commenced to travel keenly and got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of ROYAL PRIDE.

In this incident, SPLENDID STAR shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of SUPER HIGHWAY which became unbalanced.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, COLONEL was momentarily steadied away from the heels of FLYING SWORD when being crossed by that horse.

For some distance approaching and passing the 1100 Metres, SUPER HIGHWAY travelled keenly and near the 950 Metres got its head up when very awkwardly placed behind BRILLIANT EIGHT.

After the 1100 Metres, POLARIS WINNER was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 900 Metres, COLONEL got its head up and was shifted out away from the heels of FLYING SWORD which shifted out from behind UNICORNBABY.

LUCKY GOLD, which was following COLONEL, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

SUPER HIGHWAY was held up for clear running rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight until passing the 250 Metres.

LUCKY GOLD had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

When questioned, V Borges stated that he was instructed to take up a forward position on COLONEL in today's race.

He said after riding his mount positively out of the barriers, he felt that both FLYING SWORD and UNICORNBABY were being ridden to obtain forward positions and as COLONEL was racing over 1400 Metres, he elected to take a trailing position rather than ride his mount along to obtain the lead as he felt that this would provide COLONEL with the best opportunity of seeing out the distance of today's race.

A veterinary inspection of BRILLIANT EIGHT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of SWIFT SPIRIT immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.
