Race 1 CLANBROOKE RACING HANDICAP - 1000 metres:

Mimosas Slow to begin.

Ranveer Began awkwardly.

Rambeau Began awkwardly and raced greenly in the early stages.

Vinlago Began awkwardly. Held up for clear running from the 500m until passing the 300m.

Along The River Began awkwardly. Eased approaching the 100m when tightened for room between Smokin' Holly and Our Heidi which shifted in under pressure before being straightened.

Hurtle Began awkwardly, shifted in and brushed the hindquarters of Vinlago which had shifted out. Steadied near the 600m and hung out when reluctant to hold its position between Mimosas and Along The River. Eased down over the concluding stages. Rider Luke Currie reported the gelding had been fractious in the starting stalls prior to the start, was then slow to begin and raced awkwardly through the early stages. He added that it was questionable whether the gelding had handled today's heavy track conditions and that on return to scale, Hurtle felt a little short in its action but not necessarily lame. Co-trainer Calvin McEvoy advised that the gelding raced greenly, he was very disappointed with the performance and it was the stable's intention that Hurtle would be spelled. He undertook to notify Stewards should any condition come to light that may have affected the gelding's performance. A post‑race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities. A swab sample was taken for analysis.

Songawar Lost the near hind plate in running.

 

Race 2 TILE IMPORTER HANDICAP 2400 metres:

Hostar Began awkwardly with its head up and then raced awkwardly for several strides and brushed the hindquarters of Silence The Stars. Held up for a short distance approaching the 600m behind the weakening Midterm (GB).

Silence The Stars Raced wide without cover throughout.

Flickitova (NZ) Raced wide through the early stages before obtaining a position handy with cover near the 1500m. Brushed passing the 400m by Mr Mooj (IRE) which shifted out to obtain running to the outside of Nordic Pride.

Shakespeare (NZ) Held up for clear running from the 500m until shifting out across heels passing the 300m. Apprentice Madison Lloyd reported she was content settling back in the field from the wide draw with the expectation that there was going to be some pace in the race. She explained that she would have preferred to have obtained clear running into the race passing the 800m as Shakespeare (NZ) does not have a quick turn of foot and prefers to build momentum into the race. She added that after following Hostar from the 600m she then elected to shifted out in the straight in an attempt to obtain clear running. A post‑race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.

Ablaze (NZ) Apprentice Lachlan Neindorf was severely reprimanded under the provisions of AR132(6)(c) regarding his use of the whip on a horse which is out of contention. A post‑race veterinary examination on the request of the stable revealed no abnormalities.

Chuck A Luck (NZ) Rider Ben Melham explained the gelding travelled comfortably after settling on pace with cover, however in his opinion may perform at its best when able to dictate terms in the lead. A post‑race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.

 

Race 3 LADBROKES SPLIT HANDICAP - 1300 metres:

Retrovailles Began awkwardly. Apprentice Matthew Cartwright reported the filly was not suited by the moderate tempo and did not finish the race off as expected. Post-race endoscopy of Retrovailles detected a throat condition which may have affected the filly's racing performance. A veterinary certificate will be required prior to racing again.

Shy Pippa Began awkwardly. A distant last. Rider Dean Holland reported that his mount was not suited on today's heavy track conditions. Lost the off fore plate in running .A post‑race veterinary examination revealed the filly had sustained a small wound to the off fore heel bulb.

Steadied passing the 700m to avoid the heels of Retrovailles. Apprentice Will Price reported he was instructed to ride the filly back in the field with the view of finishing the race off strongly. He added after settling at the rear of the field, Electric Belle (NZ) then had a tendency to race keenly and that he was not too disappointed with the manner in which the filly finished the race off.

Free Flying Star Got its head up when being steadied to avoid the heels of Divine Diosa passing the 1000m.

Divine Diosa Experienced difficulty obtaining clear running in the early stages of the run to the finish before shifting out over heels to obtain clear running from the 150m.

Sweet Sixteen Rider Jamie Kah explained after beginning only fairly, her mount settled further back than intended. She added the filly raced flat throughout the event, was reluctant to take a run between Retrovailles and Sensationalisation in the straight and in her opinion was entitled to finish the race off better than it did.

Quietly Discreet Rider Jamie Mott explained the filly travelled well, however failed to run on in the straight. A post‑race veterinary examination revealed a slow recovery. Post-race endoscopy of Quietly Discreet detected a degree of internal exercise‑induced pulmonary haemorrhage which may have affected the filly's racing performance. A veterinary certificate will be required prior to racing again.

Aimee's Jewel (NZ) A distant last. Apprentice Matthew Cartwright reported his mount choked down and was disappointing. A post‑race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities. Stewards will follow up with the stable.

High Excalebration Apprentice Will Price explained he was instructed to settle in a midfield position just off the speed, however after beginning only fairly and from the wide barrier, he was of the opinion the mare would be caught wide, so elected to restrain and as a result settled further back than intended. He added the mare ran well and finished the race off strongly.

 

Race 5 LADBROKES BET TICKER HANDICAP - 1800 metres:

Pancho After being fractious in the barrier underwent a veterinary examination and was declared a late scratching at 2.07 pm on veterinary advice.

Race 4 TOBIN BROTHERS 0-58 HANDICAP - 2025 metres: 

 

Dourekn Stewards have concluded an inquiry regarding the reasons Dourekn fell after the winning post, dislodging rider Lewis German. After taking evidence from riders C. Rawiller, C. Robertson and L. German, it was established passing the winning post Dourekn was taken out off its course by Cape Mount (C. Robertson) that in turn was taken out by Rajpipla (C. Rawiller) which was hanging out. As a consequence Dourekn was bumped, slipped and fell. Stewards were of the opinion that despite Rajpipla being inclined to hang out, rider C. Rawiller should have made a greater effort in the circumstances to straighten his mount and C. Rawiller was severely reprimanded.
