Recap by phillip woo

The well-backed Everyone's Delight just won a thriller over Soulmate after settling effectively one-out, one-back for a fifth career win. He was suited by the light weight with a rise in class but did put the writing on the wall with a near win over this trip in March before misfiring on the dirt. Favourite Soulmate had his chance but found one too good in a pace-stalking role. He's had a terrific campaign and has the tools to pick up a win shortly in this grade. Telecom Fighters just held on for third after getting his own way in front from the widest draw. The big weight took its toll in the end but he rarely produces a bad run over this Valley trip. Gorytus ran on steadily to nearly place after travelling midfield on the fence. He required a faster pace but it was nevertheless a good run in his first outing in Class Two. Fa Fa ran on without menacing from near last in the seven-horse field. He needed the outing following a lengthy break. Apache Pass never got into the act travelling one from the rear. The combination of a rise in class and a switch to the turf worked against him. Savaquin didn't have much left in the tank 200m out after taking off from last at the 550m. It was an out-of-character performance.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (695) - CASTLE PEAK BAY HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650Meters

When being steadied to obtain cover, FA FA got its head up on jumping and then was brushed by EVERYONE'S DELIGHT which shifted out.

A short distance after the start, FA FA was bumped by SAVAQUIN which shifted in after being bumped by TELECOM FIGHTERS which shifted in and then became unbalanced after making contact with SAVAQUIN.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, GORYTUS briefly raced in restricted room inside EVERYONE'S DELIGHT which got its head on the side and lay in.

In the Straight, GORYTUS lay out and near the 125 Metres was awkwardly placed inside the heels of TELECOM FIGHTERS.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SAVAQUIN, J Moreira stated that after obtaining a rearward position in the early stages, his mount commenced to lay out after entering the Back Straight.

He said SAVAQUIN continued to lay out and would not maintain its position behind APACHE PASS.

He said as he believed that APACHE PASS was not a horse that would likely take SAVAQUIN into the race, he elected to improve his position forward of that horse approaching the 600 Metres as SAVAQUIN continued to lay out.

He added that making the turns SAVAQUIN continued to shift out from other runners and after giving him a limited response rounding the Home Turn was then disappointing in its failure to finish the race off.

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

EVERYONE'S DELIGHT and SOULMATE were sent for sampling.
