Recap by phillip woo

Cordyceps One came with a withering run near the inside from last to take control 20m out for a first win at his 12th start and third in the grade. He did produce a better run last start and he appreciated both a rise in trip and a wet track. Noble Man did everything but get the win after hitting the front 150m out following a box-seat run. He has been racing better of late. Circuit Elite stayed on well for third after getting held up at stages in the stretch drive following a rails run in midfield. It was his best run to date following a downgrade. Smiling Face ran on well after settling near last from a wide draw to just miss a placing. It was a good run carrying more weight following a win. Garlic Hero ran on steadily from behind midfield to earn a first career pay slip at his 13th start. He likely found the wet ground to his liking. Wonderful Tiger was stopping 100m out after leading 250m out after getting posted three deep chasing the speed without cover 1,000m out. He had an excuse. Sea Monarch ran on without menacing after making his run five back on the fence. This Is Charisma peaked on his run 150m out after improving three deep approaching the final bend following a one-off run in midfield. He's not reliable.

MISTER ARM shifted in at the start and hampered GARLIC HERO.

NOBLE MAN shifted out shortly after the start and inconvenienced THIS IS CHARISMA.

CORDYCEPS ONE, which was leaning on the outside of its stall, began awkwardly and then from a wide barrier was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Also from the outside barrier, SMILING FACE was steadied on jumping to obtain a position closer to the rail.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, SEA MONARCH got its head up on a number of occasions when obtaining a position behind CIRCUIT ELITE.

SEA MONARCH had some difficulty obtaining clear running approaching the 150 Metres and then after the 150 Metres raced tight inside MISTER ARM when improving between that horse and THIS IS CHARISMA.

After the race, J Moreira (DAILY BEAUTY) attributed tonight's disappointing performance to having to race in a three wide position throughout.

He said along the Back Straight DAILY BEAUTY was then required to travel without cover and after being taken out by THIS IS CHARISMA passing the 700 Metres was able to briefly obtain some cover behind that horse, however, continued to travel wide.

He added that DAILY BEAUTY came under heavy pressure prior to the 600 Metres and then gave ground noticeably rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight.

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

Also after the race, Z Purton reported that after travelling well in the early and middle stages, THIS IS CHARISMA improved into the race nicely prior to the Home Turn.

A veterinary inspection of THIS IS CHARISMA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
