RACE 4: Typhoon Char­lie – slow to be­gin. Ap­proach­ing the home turn was stead­ied avoid the heels of Lucky Leg­end, which taken out slightly by Dream Builder, shifted out to im­prove be­hind Waldo Wal­dorf. Waldo Wal­dorf – trav­elled wide with­out cover for the ma­jor­ity of the event. Lucky Leg­end – a post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Tivoli Street – when ques­tioned, rider H Bowman ex­plained that it had been an­tic­i­pated from its wide bar­rier the geld­ing would race for­ward and if pos­si­ble set­tle out­side the leader and even­tual win­ner Sebrarian. He said his mount be­gan only fairly and when the pace was gen­uine in the early stages Sebrarian and Grasberg im­proved, he did not feel it was detri­men­tal to the geld­ing’s chances to­day on a heavy track set­tle three wide with­out cover. H Bowman fur­ther stated that he was con­tent with this po­si­tion, as Tivoli Street in a good rhythm and he was still con­fi­dent of its chances ap­proach­ing the home turn. He added when the leader, quick­ened round­ing the home turn his mount was un­der heavy pres­sure to im­prove and, when be­ing rid­den out vig­or­ously over the fi­nal 200m, the geld­ing ap­peared to re­sent the use of whip and be­came un­bal­anced near 70m. He said for this rea­son he elected then in cir­cum­stances to ride his mount out as best he was able hands and heels to the win­ning post, whereby the geld­ing fin­ished race off soundly. Trainer Mr C Waller stated that Tivoli Street, with­out hav­ing a favourable run in the race, was some­what dis­ad­van­taged by the leader and ul­ti­mate win­ner SEBRARIAN be­ing able to dic­tate terms in front with its light weight.
