was rep­ri­manded un­der LR70. Be­gan awk­wardly. Hung out un­der pres­sure in the straight as it gave ground. Mis­ter Mar­malade – slow to be­gin. Last Try Wins – jumped awk­wardly and de­spite be­ing rid­den along in the early stages, failed to muster speed and be­came de­tached from the field. Valknut – raced fiercely in the early and mid­dle stages. Su­per Star Bob – laid un­der pres­sure in the straight. Collins Creek near the 250m was in­con­ve­nienced when crowded be­tween Su­per Star Bob and Bon­s­ley, which shifted out. Snow­brook – near the 200m was ham­pered when crowded be­tween Count Cu­mani and Sched­ule, which shifted out when be­ing stead­ied away from the heels of Collins Creek. Makfi Lass – near the 200m was stead­ied and shifted to the out­side of My Tago­son find clear run­ning. – near the 200m had to al­ter course to the in­side of Mis­ter Mar­malade to find clear run­ning. Sched­ule – when ques­tioned re­gard­ing his riding in the straight, K McEvoy stated with the strong early tempo he had an­tic­i­pated the lead­ing divi­sion giv­ing ground and ac­cord­ingly he elected to at­tempt to find a run out wide. He said on straight­en­ing he ini­tially looked to the in­side to as­cer­tain if there was clear run­ning and when he did not iden­tify a run to take elected to shift out in or­der to fol­low Su­per Star Bob. K McEvoy added, as he com­menced to shift to fol­low that run­ner, both Su­per Star Bob and Collins Creek shifted in in ad­vance of him and he was then obliged to check his mount to avoid the heels of Collins Creek and shift out to se­cure clear run­ning in­side the 200m. He said once bal­anced up in the straight Sched­ule found

line strongly. K McEvoy agreed with Stew­ards that in ret­ro­spect his best op­tion the straight would have been to shift to the in­side of Collins Creek find clear run­ning.

RACE 5: Su­per Too – trainer Mr M Con­ners ad­vised the mare had sus­tained bruis­ing to its off-fore­leg overnight whilst in the sta­bles and con­se­quently was with­drawn from to­day’s event. Mr Con­ners was asked to pro­vide a vet­eri­nary clear­ance for Su­per Too prior its next race start. Spi­eth – af­ter be­ing slow to be­gin, was crowded shortly af­ter be­tween Ni­eta and The Mon­star, which shifted out. Com­menced to race keenly in the mid­dle stages, whereby it was then in­clined to lay out un­til ap­proach­ing the home turn. Over the fi­nal 200m was in­clined to lay in. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the horse to have blood in one nos­tril and to be dis­play­ing a poor post-race re­cov­ery and res­pi­ra­tory dis­tress. Trainer Mr B Heys ad­vised Stew­ards Spi­eth had not dis­played any res­pi­ra­tory is­sue in its pre­vi­ous race starts and had been sub­ject to an en­do­scopic ex­am­i­na­tion post-race in the New­mar­ket Hand­i­cap on 11 March 2017 where no ab­nor­mal­i­ties were de­tected. Mr Heys was ad­vised that prior to the horse racing again it would be re­quired to ei­ther gal­lop over 1000m in the pres­ence of the Stew­ards or bar­rier trial to sat­is­fac­tion of Stew­ards and a sat­is­fac­tory en­do­scopic ex­am­i­na­tion would also be re­quired. An

per­formed by the sta­ble vet­eri­nar­ian on re­turn to Mr Heys’ sta­ble did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties, how­ever Spi­eth was found to be suf­fer­ing from bruis­ing its eye.

RACE 6: Whis­pered Se­cret – slow to be­gin. Sean­nie

Over­raced in the early and mid­dle stages. I Am Ex­cited – mak­ing the home turn was ham­pered and taken wider when Al­izee shifted out to im­prove to the out­side of For­mal­ity. For­mal­ity – over the fi­nal 50m was in­clined to lay out un­der pres­sure. Cham­pagne Cud­dles – laid out un­der pres­sure in the straight. When ques­tioned re­gard­ing the filly set­tling at the tail of field, T Ang­land stated he was is­sued with no spe­cific in­struc­tions, but from his wide draw there was al­ways a risk of be­ing caught

with­out cover. He said, af­ter his mount com­menced well, he looked to his in­side to see if there was an op­por­tu­nity to sit in be­hind the lead­ers, how­ever when I Am Ex­cited held its po­si­tion to his in­side, he elected al­low mount to drift back to­wards the rear of the field. He added that when Sean­nie held its po­si­tion to his in­side he was obliged then to re­strain his mount take up a po­si­tion be­hind that run­ner in or­der to ob­tain cover. T Ang­land fur­ther stated, with the mod­er­ate early tempo, he elected to com­mence to ride his mount along from the 450m, whereby Cham­pagne Cud­dles ran on strongly. Af­ter con­sid­er­ing his ex­pla­na­tion, Stew­ards deemed his de­ci­sion to go back to the tail of the field was rea­son­able in

cir­cum­stances given that he would be obliged to race three wide with­out cover had

not done so. Joy­fil­lly Ours – a post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

RACE 7: An­to­nio Guiseppe – slow to be­gin. Raced keenly through­out when caught wide with­out cover. Li­bran – shortly af­ter the start was crowded slightly be­tween Las­queti Spirit and Cho­cante. Briefly held up mak­ing the home turn. Sar­rasin – for some dis­tance passing 1200m when racing keenly was stead­ied when awk­wardly placed on the heels of Winx. Sta­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mr C Duck­worth re­ported that Sar­rasin was found to have bled from one nos­tril on re­turn to the sta­ble. Mr Duck­worth was ad­vised that Sar­rasin would be re­quired to ei­ther gal­lop over 1000m in the pres­ence of the Stew­ards or bar­rier trial to the sat­is­fac­tion of Stew­ards and a sat­is­fac­tory en­do­scopic ex­am­i­na­tion would also be re­quired prior to racing again. Winx – ap­proach­ing the 200m rider H Bow­man ac­ci­den­tally dropped his whip. H Bow­man was fined $300 un­der AR137(c) for mak­ing a cel­e­bra­tory ges­ture prior to the win­ning post.

RACE 8: Heav­ens Above – slow to be­gin. Mau­rus – shortly af­ter the start was stead­ied and shifted in be­hind run­ners to ob­tain cover. Tom Mel­bourne – over­raced in the early and mid­dle stages when obliged to race wide with­out cover. Laid in in the straight. In­vin­ci­ble Gem – af­ter be­ing crossed by Ecuador near the 1000m, en­deav­oured to ob­tain a po­si­tion to the out­side of that run­ner, but was pre­vented from do­ing so when G Schofield, rider of The Vir­ginian, shifted in to take up that po­si­tion out­side Ecuador. In this in­ci­dent In­vin­ci­ble Gem was stead­ied to take a po­si­tion be­hind Ecuador. On straight­en­ing In­vin­ci­ble Gem im­proved into a nar­row run be­tween Ecuador and The Vir­ginian, re­sult­ing in In­vin­ci­ble Gem and The Vir­ginian mak­ing contact both run­ners be­came un­bal­anced. Mack­in­tosh – in­clined to lay in in the early part of the straight and as a re­sult was re­luc­tant to shift to the out­side of Heav­ens Above for some dis­tance in the early part the straight to se­cure clear run­ning. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the geld­ing to be lame in near-fore­leg. Trainer Mr C Waller was ad­vised a vet­eri­nary clear­ance would be re­quired prior to Mack­in­tosh racing again. Zan­bagh – near the 200m was stead­ied when dis­ap­pointed for clear run­ning be­tween McCreery and The Vir­ginian, which shifted out and away from In­vin­ci­ble Gem. Zan­bagh was then held up for clear run­ning un­til near the 100m.

RACE 9: Marenos­tro – be­gan awk­wardly. When ques­tioned re­gard­ing his riding round­ing the home turn, App. B McDougall stated that his mount com­menced to tire and dur­ing this time shifted out slightly round­ing the home turn, which ul­ti­mately pro­vided room for even­tual win­ner Wash­ing­ton Heights be­ing able to pur­sue a nar­row run his in­side. B McDougall was ad­vised that he should en­sure that wher­ever pos­si­ble he rides his mounts in a com­pet­i­tive man­ner. Free Stand­ing – slow to be­gin. Over­raced badly through­out the early and mid­dle stages. My Nordic Hero – slow to be­gin. Berry De­li­cious stead­ied and shifted in shortly af­ter the start to ob­tain cover. Over­raced in the early and mid­dle stages. Near the 250m was in­con­ve­nienced when crowded by Dawn Wall (C Brown) and My Nordic Hero (M Walker), which was in­clined to lay out away from Ve­ladero. Both C Brown and M Walker were ad­vised to ex­er­cise more care. Dawn Wall – stead­ied and shifted in shortly af­ter the start to ob­tain cover. Ve­ladero – rider G Schofield stated he was in­structed to take up a for­ward po­si­tion and, af­ter jump­ing well, he fol­lowed Rocket Com­man­der across in the early stages. He said he ex­pected Rocket Com­man­der to cross Marenos­tro to the lead, but when Marenos­tro held its po­si­tion in front he was left three wide with­out cover for the re­main­der of the event. A pos­trace vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Rocket Com­man­der – in­clined to lay in un­der pres­sure in the straight, re­sult­ing in T Clark shift­ing his weight on two oc­ca­sions to as­sist straight­en­ing mount.
