Filly Bon's A Pearla caught the eye on debut over this C&D before failing with excuses in each of her next four starts, including each leg of the four-year-old series, and since trialled well for her new trainer. She's an each-way chance. California Voce has made a good impression late to fill the frame in both local starts over this C&D, including a close second latest behind Brave Dreams on a yielding track. He'll be hard to keep out of the finish. Chiu Chow Spirit has placed in his past two of three C&D runs, including a rallying second to Red Lion and that horse has since won three times. He trialled well and should be fighting out the finish. Noble Win followed up an unlucky sixth second up locally with late-market action over 1,200m with a hard-charging third in that Brave Dreams race. He remains one for short list.


BON'S A PEARLA (G449)jumped only fairly Then in the early stages raced keenly Near the 1800M was steadied when racing tight Near the 1400M got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover - Race 509 CHARITY GRACE (E090)in the middle stages raced fiercely due to the slow early pace and for the majority of the race refused to settle when racing wide and without cover - Race 624 HOSS (H055)passing the 300M improved into a narrow run A short distance later shifted out and bumped a runner - Race 632 WINGS OF WAR (H162)soon after the start was eased when crowded When questioned regarding his riding on the Home Turn, rider stated that after following the eventual winner making the Home Turn, he elected to remain racing behind that runner with a view to following it through as it was the favourite in the event He added that he felt in the circumstances to come wide would not have assisted his horse's chances by having to cover additional ground He said although briefly held up on the Home Turn, when that runner quickened at the top of the Straight, his mount secured clear running and was able to finish the race off well - Race 632 CHIU CHOW SPIRIT (H175)jumped awkwardly - Race 546 MIDORI BEAUTY (G334)in the early stages was shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier - Race 682 STORM LEGEND (G139)in the early stages raced keenly when being shifted across behind runners In the middle stages continued to race keenly and making the turn after the 900M shifted out and made contact with a runner - Race 658 BIG RED (H299)proved difficult to load Has since performed satisfactorily in a stall test After the 900M was left racing wide and without cover - Race 662 NOBLE WIN (H195)when questioned regarding the horse settling back in the field, rider stated that the instructions were to settle his mount where comfortable, but importantly was not to ride it along in the early stages as it was stepping up to 1400M and had raced keenly at its last start over 1200M He said after his mount jumped only fairly, he was reluctant to push his mount in the early stages having regard to the instructions and therefore his mount settled further back in the field than what had been anticipated He added when placed under pressure whilst following a runner near the 600M, his mount was not entirely comfortable on the rain-affected track conditions in the race until such time it was able to secure what he perceived to be better going wider on the track whereby his mount made good ground in the Straight Trainer confirmed the instructions issued - Race 662 SEASONS BLISS (E146)when questioned regarding his riding of the horse, rider stated that from a wide barrier he was instructed to endeavour to take up a position with cover midfield He said after commencing reasonably well, he observed a runner to his inside and had anticipated that runner shifting to the rail to obtain cover He said when that runner maintained its position three wide, that resulted in his mount being four wide without cover and as a result he commenced to restrain his mount in order to comply with the instructions He added when another runner improved to his inside passing the 1200M, that resulted in him having to restrain further to obtain a position with cover behind that runner When questioned if there was an opportunity to go forward and cross the aforementioned runner, rider stated that as the specific instructions were to obtain cover, had he gone forward of that runner, he would have been obliged to race three wide and without cover Trainer confirmed the instructions issued Post-race vet inspection did not show any significant findings - Race 624 ROMAN TURBO (E043)for the majority of the event raced wide and without cover - Race 662 VILLA FIONN (B339)jumped awkwardly - Race 670


Chiu Chow Spirit had plenty in hand when not beaten far in a recent barrier trial.
