RACE 1: Regi­nae – as T Clark was du­ally en­gaged, Stew­ards per­mit­ted C Brown to be sub­sti­tuted the rider of the filly when San­gita, the sec­ond emer­gency, gained a start in event. Con­demned – be­gan awk­wardly and then was ham­pered on jump­ing by More Sun­days, which shifted in. Ap­proach­ing the 150m stead­ied when dis­ap­pointed for run­ning be­tween More Sun­days and Symi, which shifted out.

Near the 100m was ham­pered when crowded by Symi (T Berry), which shifted out. T Berry ad­vised to ex­er­cise more care. then con­tin­ued to lay out over the con­clud­ing stages, plac­ing More Sun­days in re­stricted room. Rider K McEvoy stated that the colt was in­clined to race keenly out­side leader Symi through­out the early and mid­dle stages and in his view was not en­tirely com­fort­able rac­ing in a clock­wise di­rec­tion. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Co-trainer Mr B Hayes con­curred with the view of K McEvoy and ad­vised sta­ble was dis­ap­pointed with to­day’s per­for­mance. He in­di­cated to the Stew­ards that More Sun­days had pleased the sta­ble since its strong bar­rier trial at Rose­hill on 20 Au­gust 2018. Mr Hayes ad­vised that the geld­ing would most prob­a­bly now re­turn to the Vic­to­rian sta­ble and un­der­took re­port back if there is anything amiss with colt in the days sub­se­quent. Aris­to­cratic Miss – be­gan only fairly. Raced keenly in the mid­dle stages and a short dis­tance later near the 800m was re­strained from the heels of More Sun­days.

When com­menc­ing to make ground in­side the 200m was stead­ied ini­tially when held up on the heels of Ranier and soon af­ter was again when crowded be­tween Per­fect Pitch More Sun­days. Quack­er­jack was then checked from the heels of More Sun­days near the 100m and fol­low­ing this in­ci­dent could not be tested when placed close to heels of Ranier. Ligu­late – from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners shortly af­ter the start. Kanavu – from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners shortly af­ter the start. San­gita – af­ter be­ing crossed by Regi­nae near the 1000m had to be stead­ied from the heels of that run­ner for some dis­tance. Held up for clear run­ning in the early part the straight and near 300m was checked when dis­ap­pointed for clear run­ning be­tween Ranier and More Sun­days, which shifted out slightly. San­gita was then to the in­side of More Sun­days, but again had to be checked when dis­ap­pointed be­tween

Sun­days and Con­demned. San­gita then was not tested over the fi­nal 150m. Per­fect Pitch – fi­nal 200m was not able to be when ini­tially held up on the heels of Ranier and then over the fi­nal 100m placed in re­stricted room be­tween Aris­to­cratic Miss ( M Walker), which shifted in, and Quack­er­jack. M Walker was ad­vised to ex­er­cise more care. Ranier – raced wide with­out cover through­out the event. RACE 2: Souchez – as the start was ef­fected be­came frac­tious, made con­tact with the near­side of its bar­rier and as a re­sult lost ground (3L). Jake’s Hill – slow to be­gin. Near the 200m was stead­ied when crowded be­tween Faroli­tos and In­stant De Reve, which taken out by Streets Of Avalon (App. F Ker­s­ley). App. Ker­s­ley was rep­ri­manded and ad­vised he must stop rid­ing straighten his mounts when they com­mence to shift ground whilst not clear. Ab­don – slow to be­gin. Raced keenly in the mid­dle stages. Un­der pres­sure straight was in­clined to lay in and proved dif­fi­cult to ride out. Good­fella – hung out on the home turn.

In­stant De Reve – held up for clear run­ning in the early part of the straight and near 200m was ham­pered when crowded be­tween Faroli­tos and Streets Of Avalon. In­stant De Reve then did not ob­tain clear run­ning from this point. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Naval War­fare – when ques­tioned re­gard­ing the geld­ing rac­ing back in the field to­day, rider App. J Van Over­meire stated his in­struc­tions were to take up a mid­field po­si­tion with the em­pha­sis on en­sur­ing that the geld­ing ob­tained cover. He said from his wide bar­rier Naval War­fare com­menced well and in an at­tempt to ob­tain cover he rode his mount neg­a­tively in or­der to com­ply with his in­struc­tions. He added that when caught wide was obliged ease his mount in the early stages in or­der to ob­tain cover and as a con­se­quence set­tled fur­ther back than in­tended. Streets Of Avalon – rider App. F Ker­s­ley re­ported that the geld­ing was able to dic­tate terms at a gen­uine tempo and leav­ing the 600m he en­deav­oured ride the geld­ing along to in­crease the tempo. He said that mak­ing the home turn Streets Of Avalon be­came un­bal­anced and in the straight, when placed un­der pres­sure, he felt his mount was still some­what un­bal­anced and failed to re­spond to his rid­ing. He added that rac­ing in a clock­wise di­rec­tion on the first oc­ca­sion was the only ex­pla­na­tion he could of­fer for dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr S Ni­chols ad­vised that the geld­ing had pleased the sta­ble lead­ing into to­day’s race and he agreed with ex­pla­na­tion from rider App. F Ker­s­ley in that the geld­ing may not have been suited by rac­ing the clock­wise way of go­ing for

first oc­ca­sion. Mr Ni­chols un­der­took to re­port back on the progress Streets Of Avalon in days sub­se­quent.

When ques­tioned re­gard­ing his rid­ing in the early part of the straight and as to whether there was an opportunity se­cure clear run­ning be­tween Arugula and Atho­nis sooner than he did, rider App. B Ryan stated, af­ter fol­low­ing Dy­lan’s Deeva into the straight, im­proved to that run­ner’s out­side with a view se­cur­ing a run be­tween Dy­lan’s Deeva and Arugula. He said when Arugula shifted in he was awk­wardly placed close to the heels of that run­ner for some dis­tance and as a con­se­quence was not able im­me­di­ately take ad­van­tage of a run that had de­vel­oped be­tween Arugula and Atho­nis, which had shifted out. He added, once clear to shift, he at­tempted to ob­tain run­ning be­tween Arugula and Atho­nis, but as his mount took some time to im­prove into this po­si­tion he was dis­ap­pointed for run when Atho­nis shifted back in at the 200m. App. Ryan fur­ther stated, af­ter switch­ing to the out­side of Atho­nis near the 150m, he was again dis­ap­pointed for clear run­ning be­tween and Lethal Dream and went to the fin­ish with­out be­ing fully tested. Pomme La Belle - slow to be­gin then shortly af­ter the start was bumped by Blinkin Fast. Not Bossy – from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners shortly af­ter the start. Atho­nis – in the mid­dle stages raced keenly and near 600m was checked to avoid heels of Arugula. In this in­ci­dent Atho­nis shifted out, re­sult­ing in Lethal Dream hav­ing to be checked from that run­ner’s heels. Lethal Dream – raced wide and with­out cover through­out the event. Rider M Walker re­ported geld­ing hung in for the ma­jor­ity of

RACE 4: Brimham Rocks – the geld­ing, which made con­tact with front gates of its bar­rier, was ex­am­ined by Club’s Ve­teri­nary Of­fi­cer and deemed suit­able to race. Bumped on jump­ing Quick De­fence, which be­gan awk­wardly and shifted out. Quick De­fence – be­gan awk­wardly. Just Shine – slow to be­gin. When ques­tioned re­gard­ing the dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance, T Clark ad­vised that the geld­ing was able to have a com­fort­able run through­out the event, but was one-paced in the straight and was dis­ap­point­ing. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Ms C Cun­ning­ham ad­vised she was dis­ap­pointed with the per­for­mance of the geld­ing and un­der­took to re­port back re­sults of a ve­teri­nary in­spec­tion con­ducted on Just Shine in the days sub­se­quent. All Too Soon – when ques­tioned re­gard­ing the per­for­mance, rider T Ang­land ad­vised that the mare was caught rac­ing three wide and with­out cover for the ma­jor­ity of the event, par­tic­u­larly in back straight rac­ing into a strong head wind. He added, with a gen­uine early tempo and An­other Snappy es­tab­lish­ing a size­able lead in the mid­dle stages, he was obliged to make use of All Too Soon much sooner than he had in­tended when the main body of the field com­menced to im­prove into the event from the 800m. He said that given

cir­cum­stances he was not too dis­ap­pointed with the mare’s run, par­tic­u­larly when it was back­ing up from its last start at Rose­hill Gar­dens on Satur­day, 25 Au­gust 2018. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the mare to be dis­play­ing the thumps. Trafal­gar – a post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

RACE 6: Dixie Blos­soms - Stew­ards con­sid­ered an ob­jec­tion lodged by C Reith, rider of 3rd placeget­ter Dixie Blos­soms against Comin’ Through (M Walker) be­ing de­clared the win­ner, al­leg­ing in­ter­fer­ence soon af­ter straight­en­ing. Af­ter con­sid­er­ing all ev­i­dence, Stew­ards found that Comin’ Through shifted out near the 400m and made con­tact with Dixie Blos­soms, re­sult­ing in Dixie Blos­soms be­ing forced wider. Af­ter con­sid­er­ing in par­tic­u­lar the man­ner in which both horses fin­ished race off over the fi­nal 200m, Stew­ards could not be com­fort­ably sat­is­fied that had the in­ter­fer­ence not oc­curred Dixie Blos­soms would have fin­ished in ad­vance of Comin’ Through and there­fore the ob­jec­tion was dis­missed. At a sub­se­quent in­quiry M Walker pleaded guilty to a charge of care­less rid­ing un­der AR137(a) in that he per­mit­ted his mount shift out near the 400m, re­sult­ing in Comin’ Through mak­ing con­tact with Dixie Blos­soms, which was forced across the run­ning of Duca Valenti­nois, which had to be checked. M Walker’s li­cence to ride in races was sus­pended for a pe­riod

com­mence on Sun­day, 2 Septem­ber 2018 and to ex­pire Thur­day, 13 Septem­ber 2018, which day he may ride. Net­toyer – shortly af­ter the start was badly crowded for room be­tween Egg Tart and Comin’ Through, which shifted out. In this in­ci­dent both Egg Tart and Comin’ Through were con­tacted on the hindquar­ter and be­came un­bal­anced. Tom Mel­bourne – raced keenly in early and mid­dle stages and re­fused to set­tle. Egg Tart the mid­dle stages. Near the 200m was stead­ied when dis­ap­pointed for clear run­ning be­tween Le Ro­main and Comin’ Through, which shifted in. Egg Tart was then shifted to the out­side of

but was un­able to se­cure clear run­ning over fi­nal 200m when awk­wardly placed be­tween Dixie Blos­soms and Comin’ Through, which shifted out slightly. Le Ro­main – raced wide and with­out cover through­out the event. Comin’ Through laid in un­der pres­sure for some dis­tance ap­proach­ing the 100m. Duca Valenti­nois – a post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties Lan­ci­ato rider T Berry re­ported that his mount was un­suited by the mod­er­ate tempo in the early and mid­dle stages and, as his mount com­menced to make ground, was in­con­ve­nienced at the 400m when Duca Valenti­nois was checked. He said de­spite this in­ci­dent Lan­ci­ato was still some­what dis­ap­point­ing in its fail­ure to fin­ish the race off. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr M Newn­ham said that in his view the geld­ing was not suited by the slow tempo through­out the early and mid­dle stages and, hav­ing re­gard to the pat­tern of rac­ing, which ap­peared to favour on pace run­ners, he was not too dis­ap­pointed with the per­for­mance of Lan­ci­ato to­day. Youngstar – when ques­tioned re­gard­ing his rid­ing from the 700m and as to whether there was an opportunity im­prove to be rac­ing close to the back of Comin’ Through, K McEvoy stated that the mare, which was first up to­day, trav­elled com­fort­ably through­out the early and mid­dle stages. He added that near the 800m he al­lowed his mount to im­prove through to the in­side of Net­toyer and when Net­toyer then shifted in slightly he was re­luc­tant to pro­ceed forward for a short dis­tance in case his mount re­ceived in­ter­fer­ence. He said from the 600m he com­menced to ride forward and felt had he placed his mount un­der full pres­sure at this stage it would not have been able to fin­ish the race off given the stage of its prepa­ra­tion.

RACE 7: Mr Moon­light Magic – be­gan awk­wardly and then was crowded by Un­for­got­ten, which shifted in. In­con­ve­nienced at the 150m when Al­ler­gic shifted in. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed horse to be 3/5 lame in the off-fore­leg. Sta­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mr D Bead­man was ad­vised a ve­teri­nary clear­ance would be re­quired prior to

Moon­light Magic’s next start. Ace High – raced wide and with­out cover in the early and mid­dle stages. Red Ex­cite­ment pulled hard in the mid­dle stages and mak­ing the turn near the 900m shifted out when be­ing re­strained from the heels of Prized Icon, re­sult­ing in it mak­ing con­tact with Ace High, which was forced wider on the track. Red Ex­cite­ment then raced wide and with­out cover for some dis­tance there­after. Satono Rasen – rider K McEvoy stated that ap­proach­ing the 600m he elected to steady his mount when un­able hold a po­si­tion be­tween Ace High and It’s Some­what, which was taken out slightly by One Foot In Heaven. He said in this in­ci­dent Satono Rasen bumped on the hindquar­ter by Al­ler­gic, which re­sulted in be­ing in­con­ve­nienced fur­ther. Un­for­got­ten – held up for clear run­ning un­til the 200m. Li­bran – over the fi­nal 200m laid out un­der pres­sure. Al­ler­gic – briefly held up in the early part of straight. When mak­ing ground near the 150m was shifted to the in­side Cabeza De Vaca to se­cure clear run­ning, how­ever then held up on the heels of Religify over the fi­nal 50m where it could not be fully tested. One Foot In Heaven – ap­proach­ing 100m was stead­ied to avoid the heels of Prized Icon (T Berry), which shifted out. T Berry ad­vised ex­er­cise more care. Sin­gle Gaze – rider K O’Hara re­ported that her mount failed to show any early speed de­spite her ef­forts and set­tled much fur­ther back than an­tic­i­pated. She said in the straight Sin­gle Gaze was most dis­ap­point­ing in its fail­ure to re­spond to her rid­ing. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the mare to be 2/5 lame in the near fore-leg. Sta­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mr C Duck­worth was ad­vised a ve­teri­nary clear­ance would be re­quired prior to the mare rac­ing again. Cabeza De Vaca – rider J Parr stated that in his view geld­ing is bet­ter suited when be­ing able to dic­tate terms and opin­ion, when the race de­vel­oped into a sprint home, Cabeza De Vaca was left flat-footed and did not re­spond to his rid­ing. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. It’s Some­what – rider C Brown re­ported that he was obliged to ride his mount along through­out the early and mid­dle stages to main­tain a mid­field po­si­tion. He said in the straight, when ini­tially placed un­der pres­sure, It’s Some­what was slightly in­con­ve­nienced when Un­for­got­ten shifted in, how­ever, over the fi­nal 100m worked to the line in a sat­is­fac­tory man­ner. He added that, due to his ef­forts in hav­ing to con­tin­u­ally ride

mount along in the early and mid­dle stages, he rode his mount out to the best of his abil­ity in the straight, al­beit he was some­what re­stricted hav­ing re­gard to the cir­cum­stances of the early part of race.

RACE 8: Oo­hood – slow to be­gin. Fi­esta – slow to be­gin and then from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages.

RACE 9: Sam­bro - near the 350m had to be stead­ied when dis­ap­pointed for run­ning to the in­side of Show A Star. Sam­bro was then com­menc­ing to shift to the out­side of Show A Star near the 300m, how­ever rider H Bow­man was obliged to dis­con­tinue this ma­noeu­vre when not clear of Insen­sata and as a con­se­quence Sam­bro was badly held up on the heels Show A Star un­til in­side 200m.
