RACE 1: Host­win Supreme – be­gan awk­wardly. A post race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Golden Shoul­der – slow to be­gin. Star­dome – slow to be­gin and then was crowded on jump­ing be­tween Golden Shoul­der and Host­win Supreme, both of which shifted ground. When ques­tioned, H Bow­man, rider of Star­dome, which was hav­ing its first race start to­day, ex­plained that af­ter be­gin­ning only fairly, his mount was un­able to match the early speed of the race and set­tled some lengths be­hind field. He said that Star­dome came un­der pres­sure ap­proach­ing the 600m, and whilst the colt did not ini­tially re­spond to his rid­ing, Star­dome com­menced im­prove grad­u­ally ap­proach­ing and round­ing the home turn. H Bow­man added that whilst Star­dome was some­what one paced in the early part of the straight, the colt, when un­der pres­sure closed

race off sat­is­fac­to­rily and in the cir­cum­stances, he was pleased with Star­dome’s per­for­mance to­day. Trainer Mr C Waller said that the colt’s green­ness and lack of race ex­pe­ri­ence were fac­tors that lead to Star­dome trav­el­ling at the rear of the field, adding that he was more than sat­is­fied with the colt’s per­for­mance to­day. Pass­ing 100m, Star­dome was shifted out to avoid heels of Host­win Supreme, which was tir­ing. A post race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. RACE 2: Ze­nar­dini – the Stew­ards per­mit­ted T Clark to ride filly half a kilo­gram over its al­lot­ted weight of 53kg. Ze­nar­dini was slow to be­gin. Ranier – slow to be­gin.

Kold­ing then shifted out and made con­tact with Ma­towi, which re­sulted in that horse trav­el­ling wide with­out cover there­after. Af­ter the 700m, Kold­ing was left rac­ing wide and with­out cover. Over the fi­nal 100m, Kold­ing laid in un­der pres­sure. Select Royal – af­ter the 400m, com­menced to hang, shifted out, in­con­ve­nienc­ing Kold­ing and Ma­towi. Ma­towi then shifted out away from Kold­ing on the point of the turn bumped Ranier, which be­came un­bal­anced. A post race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

Kold­ing then shifted in away from Ma­towi, re­sult­ing in Nordic Lover hav­ing to be checked when crowded onto the hindquar­ters of Ze­nar­dini, which it­self be­came un­bal­anced. As the Stew­ards were sat­is­fied that H Bow­man had made suf­fi­cient ef­fort to cor­rect his mount, the Stew­ards did not pro­ceed with any ac­tion other than bring the rac­ing man­ners of Ma­towi to at­ten­tion of trainer Mr C Waller. Na­keeta Jane – when un­der pres­sure af­ter the 200m, com­menced to race greenly and shift in. RACE 3 – TAB Re­wards Plate 1100m Re­pute slow be­gin. Re­pute hung in in the straight.

An­other Snappy – through­out the early and mid­dle stages, raced fiercely, got its head up on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions and proved re­luc­tant to set­tle for its rider, K Adams. Takew­ing – K Adams (An­other Snappy) pleaded guilty to a charge of care­less rid­ing un­der AR137(a) in that leav­ing the straight on the first oc­ca­sion, she per­mit­ted her mount to shift in at an acute an­gle when not clear of Takew­ing caus­ing that geld­ing lose the run­ning to which it was right­fully en­ti­tled and hav­ing to be stead­ied.

Near the 850m, Moc­casin Miss was in­con­ve­nienced by Ko­pite, which af­ter be­ing ini­tially taken in slightly by Jen Rules, shifted in de­spite the ef­forts of its rider. When Jen Rules shifted out to al­le­vi­ate the tight­en­ing, O’ So Hazy, which was fol­low­ing, was ham­pered as a con­se­quence. Moc­casin Miss had dif­fi­culty ob­tain­ing clear run­ning un­til ap­proach­ing the 200m whereby it shifted to the out­side of In­vic­tum Dom­ina. Ve­locita – slow to be­gin.

O’ So Hazy – when ques­tioned, App B McDougall ex­plained that he had been asked to ride the horse con­ser­va­tively to­day. He added ad­vised by the trainer that the horse, at its most re­cent start af­ter be­gin­ning well, raced too keenly in the lead. He said that in or­der to have O’ So Hazy fin­ish its race off to­day, it was de­cided to ride the horse with cover. App McDougall said, how­ever that dur­ing the early and mid­dle stages, due to com­po­si­tion of the field, he was un­able to se­cure a po­si­tion close to the run­ning rail and af­ter 600m, left rac­ing wide with­out cover and fur­ther back in the field than an­tic­i­pated. A post race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr S Spack­man con­firmed the in­struc­tions is­sued. He said it was not the in­ten­tion to have O’ So Hazy lead at its most re­cent start, and he had hoped to­day that the filly might be able to set­tle be­hind lead­ers. Mr Spack­man was re­minded of his obli­ga­tions no­tify the Stew­ards any change of rid­ing tac­tics in fu­ture. Lit­tle Red Shoes – when ques­tioned, App P Scorse ex­plained that he had an­tic­i­pated rac­ing promi­nently, how­ever he had been un­der ex­plicit in­struc­tions by the trainer to achieve this with­out mak­ing use of the mare. He added that it was an­tic­i­pated that Lit­tle Red Shoes would its nat­u­ral gate speed to race near the lead. He added that in the early stages, Lit­tle Red Shoes did not show its cus­tom­ary early speed and hav­ing re­gard to his in­struc­tions, he

pres­sure Lit­tle Red Shoes and as the filly was un­able muster it set­tled fur­ther back than in­tended. Trainer Mr J Coyle con­firmed the in­struc­tions is­sued to App Scorse. He said he was dis­ap­pointed that Lit­tle Red Shoes was un­able to muster in the early stages and hav­ing re­gard to its fail­ure to travel promi­nently, he would now spell the mare. Ridicule – App S Weather­ley ex­plained that af­ter ap­proach­ing 200m, the mare com­menced to hang in whilst rac­ing be­hind El­lie’s En­core. He said that ap­proach­ing and round­ing the home turn, the de­gree to which Ridicule was hang­ing in­creased. He said that af­ter straight­en­ing, he be­came con­cerned with the ac­tion of Ridicule and for this rea­son, he eased the mare out of the race over fi­nal 200m. Trainer Mr B Wid­dup stated that there had been no ad­verse is­sues with Ridicule in the lead up to to­day’s race and he ex­pressed con­cern with the man­ner which Ridicule weak­ened over the fi­nal stages of the event. A post race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed that mare was mildly lame (1 out of 5) in the off fore leg. The Stew­ards deemed per­for­mance to be un­ac­cept­able and ad­vised Mr Wid­dup that be­fore Ridicule be per­mit­ted to race again, the mare must per­form sat­is­fac­to­rily in an of­fi­cial bar­rier trial and a ve­teri­nary clear­ance be pro­duced. RACE 6: Esper­ance – slow to be­gin Chalk – slow to be­gin. Shortly af­ter the start, Chalk was ham­pered by Rafha’s Choice and as a re­sult was taken out and made con­tact with Sausal­ito. Chalk, in the early part of the straight, raced re­stricted room to in­side of San­glier. Then for some dis­tance ap­proach­ing the 200m, raced tight be­tween San­glier and Our Dasha, which shifted out away from Su­per Ex. Our Dasha – raced wide with­out cover through­out the event. Inanup – was held up on the heels of Su­per Ex un­til ap­proach­ing 200m.

Su­per Ex – ap­proach­ing the win­ning post, be­came awk­wardly placed close to the heels of Chabreet, which was lay­ing out un­der pres­sure and shifted out slightly. As a re­sult, Su­per Ex not rid­den to the fin­ish of the race. Mil­i­tary Ma­chine – when ques­tioned, rider B Av­dulla said that whilst he was un­der no spe­cific in­struc­tions, did an­tic­i­pate trav­el­ling in a mid­field po­si­tion. He said Mil­i­tary Ma­chine be­gan sat­is­fac­to­rily and when the race was run at a gen­uine tempo, he elected to take up po­si­tion be­hind

even­tual win­ner, Esper­ance. B Av­dulla added that Mil­i­tary Ma­chine, af­ter shift­ing to the out­side of that horse in the straight, failed to close the race off. San­glier – a post race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the colt to be slow to re­cover.

Smart Ain’t He – made the cross­ing very awk­wardly at the 1400m, got its head on the side and shifted out mak­ing con­tact with Hirokin, tak­ing that horse wider for a short dis­tance. B Av­dulla said that his mount, which was step­ping up in dis­tance to­day, raced too keenly through­out the early and mid­dle stages whilst lead­ing event and he ex­pressed

view that the geld­ing re­sented the Nor­ton Bit. A post race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Co-trainer Mr E Cum­mings un­der­took to re­move the Nor­ton Bit af­ter con­cur­ring with views of B Av­dulla and ad­vised that it will be his in­ten­tion to race the geld­ing over a shorter dis­tance at its next start. Although there was no ve­teri­nary is­sues with Smart Ain’t He, hav­ing re­gard to the man­ner in which the geld­ing com­pounded over the fi­nal 200m, Mr Cum­mings was ad­vised that a ve­teri­nary clear­ance would be re­quired be­fore Smart Ain’t He per­mit­ted to race again. Cam­bage – raced un­gen­er­ously for some dis­tance af­ter the 1200m and was in­clined to travel keenly.

Mag­i­caz – bumped on jump­ing by High­way, which shifted out. Mag­i­caz raced wide and with­out cover through­out. Desert Lord – slow to be­gin. Ap­proach­ing the 1200m, Desert Lord got its head up, proved dif­fi­cult to set­tle when be­ing re­strained off the heels of Aqua D’Iv­ina and con­tin­ued to race in this man­ner through­out mid­dle stages. Aqua D’Iv­ina –on straight­en­ing, Spring Char­lie shifted out briefly and in do­ing so, caused Aqua D’Iv­ina to be car­ried wider. D’Iv­ina then shifted out of its own ac­cord away from Spring Char­lie. Smooth Whiskey – trav­elled keenly for a short dis­tance af­ter the 900m when rac­ing close to the heels of Spring Char­lie. A post race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Golden Hits – when ques­tioned, T Ang­land ex­plained he had been asked to ride the horse in a mid­field po­si­tion to­day if pos­si­ble. He said that Golden Hits, af­ter be­gin­ning well, was po­si­tioned wide and with­out cover. He said in an en­deav­our to take up a po­si­tion closer to the run­ning rail, he al­lowed Golden Hits grad­u­ally im­prove and ul­ti­mately he set­tled promi­nently in the early stages. He said that he was able to achieve this po­si­tion with­out hav­ing make use of the geld­ing and when rid­den in man­ner, Golden Hits fin­ished the race off strongly. Spring Creek Star – when ques­tioned, R King ex­plained that as is cus­tom­ary, she was asked to lead on the geld­ing. She said, how­ever through­out mid­dle stages, the horse raced keenly de­spite her ef­forts to have it set­tle. R King stated that although, in the cir­cum­stances, she was en­deav­our­ing to rate the geld­ing at a more even tempo, Spring Creek Star set much faster tempo than was de­sir­able. An­daz – when ques­tioned, H Bow­man stated that An­daz did not feel en­tirely com­fort­able rac­ing be­tween run­ners dur­ing the early and mid­dle stages. He said that although he had a favourable trail­ing po­si­tion be­hind Aqua D’Ivinia, the geld­ing per­formed be­low ex­pec­ta­tions to­day when fail­ing to re­spond to his urg­ings in the home straight. A post race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties.
