He said that it was an­tic­i­pated that Se­cret Leg­end would race out­side Host­win Supreme, how­ever hav­ing re­gard to the horse’s in­ex­pe­ri­ence, he should not make too much use of Se­cret Leg­end to race out­side the an­tic­i­pated leader, Host­win Supreme. He said that Se­cret Leg­end be­gan very awk­wardly and in the mid­dle stages, he iden­ti­fied an op­por­tu­nity to im­prove, how­ever when he en­deav­oured do so, Se­cret Leg­end did not quicken as he had an­tic­i­pated and there­fore elected to steady his mount in the hope of ob­tain­ing a po­si­tion be­hind Brazil­ica. He said, how­ever, that after the 800m, when Brazil­ica shifted to out­side of Host­win Supreme, he was un­able to take up a po­si­tion be­hind that run­ner which ul­ti­mately re­sulted in Se­cret Leg­end rac­ing wide and with­out cover through­out the event.

He said that for a short dis­tance early in the straight, he was un­able to place Nai’a un­der ap­pro­pri­ate pres­sure as he was en­deav­our­ing to se­cure a clear pas­sage, which ul­ti­mately he was able to do between Dolly’s Due and Pen­fold near the 300m. Sec­ond Is­land – through­out the early and mid­dle stages, raced fiercely, got its head up on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions when the rider was en­deav­our­ing to ob­tain cover.

Lady Eve­lyn was then, near the 1100m, car­ried into a po­si­tion be­hind Zatopaz. J Col­lett was ad­vised that whilst Stew­ards ap­pre­ci­ate com­pet­i­tive rid­ing, he should none­the­less de­ploy these ma­noeu­vres with due care to his fel­low riders. Near the 500m, Lady Eve­lyn was crowded for room and made con­tact with the tir­ing Zatopaz when Keep Up rolled in mo­men­tar­ily.

RACE 7: Thy King­dom Come – after be­ing loaded into the bar­ri­ers, be­came frac­tious and got its near hind leg cast on the bar­rier par­ti­tion. The geld­ing was re­moved from the bar­ri­ers, ex­am­ined by the Club’s ve­teri­nary of­fi­cer and deemed un­suit­able to race. As such Thy King­dom Come was de­clared a late with­drawal at 4.57pm on ve­teri­nary ad­vice. The Stew­ards ruled that all monies in­vested on Thy King­dom Come be re­funded in full and that all suc­cess­ful wa­gers made prior to 4.57pm be sub­ject to the fol­low­ing de­duc­tions in the face value of each ticket. 1st Chapelco 3 cents win, 4 cents place 2nd Bravis­simo place 3rd Re­gent 5 cents place Trainer Mr J Thomp­son was ad­vised that a warn­ing would be placed on Thy King­dom Come and that a ve­teri­nary clear­ance would be re­quired prior to King­dom

rac­ing again. Bringagem – slow to be­gin. Bringagem, whilst trav­el­ling wide and with­out cover, raced keenly dur­ing the early and mid­dle stages. Gi­tan – near

1100m, com­menced to race fiercely and got its head up when be­ing re­strained from the heels of Bravis­simo. Me­ta­mor­phic – when trav­el­ling wide and with­out cover, was re­strained in an en­deav­our to ob­tain a po­si­tion be­hind Bringagem, which it was ul­ti­mately able to achieve near the 700m. Re­gent – when ques­tioned, J Col­lett ex­plained that he was asked to ride horse con­ser­va­tively to­day if pos­si­ble. He said al­though Re­gent be­gan well, he elected to al­low his mount to drift back in the field in an en­deav­our take up a po­si­tion close the run­ning rail, which he was able to do in

early stages. He said that round­ing the home turn, he im­me­di­ately com­menced to shift to the out­side of the field whereby Re­gent was able to close race off strongly. Tor­pen­how – win­ning post, was briefly crowded between Me­ta­mor­phic and Re­gent, which shifted in slightly when un­der pres­sure. Schu­bert – when ques­tioned, T Clark ex­plained it was in­tended for the horse to race in a mid­field po­si­tion to­day. He said that leav­ing the 600m, his mount was re­luc­tant to main­tain its po­si­tion when rac­ing tight between Rhomlo and Me­ta­mor­phic. He said that when Me­ta­mor­phic, which was lay­ing in, put slight pres­sure on his mount, Schu­bert failed to main­tain its po­si­tion and lost ground. T Clark said that once he was able to ob­tain com­fort­able rac­ing room in the straight, Schu­bert closed the race off well and he formed the view, hav­ing re­gard to cir­cum­stances near 600m, that Schu­bert re­sented, on this oc­ca­sion, rac­ing tight between run­ners. De­ity – R King re­ported that she did not feel the mare was en­tirely com­fort­able on to­day’s sur­face. A post race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed De­ity to be slow to re­cover.
