He stated from the 700m when Frosty Rocks and Avion Fury commenced a forward move his mount became under pressure and did not respond to his riding in the straight. He added the gelding may be suited by being dropped back in grade and stepped up in distance. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities.

RACE 3: Coolmore Stayer's Cup 3200m:

A post-race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities. Stable representative Ms A Neasham agreed with the assessment of J McDonald and added that the gelding raced dour due to the fact that it was dropping back in distance today. She added that the Ablaze would be returned to its Victorian stable where it will resume its jumping campaign. Ms Neasham undertook to report back on the post-race condition of the gelding.

Latin Beat – Rider J Innes Jnr reported that the gelding was inclined to hang in throughout the event.

J Innes Jnr was fined the sum of $400 under AR132(7)(a)(ii) for using his whip on 9 occasions prior to the 100m.

 

Poulton Le Sands –Slow to begin. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities.

He added that the mare may have also been feeling the effects of its last start win at Canterbury on a Heavy 10 track. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities. Trainer Ms C Cunningham concurred with the views of J Collett and added that Lady Highly would be better suited to being dropped back in class and by being stepped up in distance. Ms Cunningham will report back to the Stewards on the post-race condition of Lady Highly.

RACE 5: De Bortoli Wines Handicap 1100m:

Time To Reign –When questioned regarding his riding G Boss stated that the colt was fractious in the barriers which necessitated an attendant assisting him. He stated that Time To Reign jumped only fairly and he was reluctant to ride his mount along in the early stages as the colt has a tendency to race keenly. He added that when crossed by Mansa Musa nearing the 900m Time To Reign commenced to race fiercely, was checked from the heels of that runner and as a result shifted out to a position where he was obliged to race three-wide and without cover from that point. He added that the colt continued to race keenly in the middle stages of the event and that in the straight gave ground due to its racing manners and the wide run it experienced. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities. Trainer Mr G Portelli confirmed that Time To Reign has a tendency to race keenly and issued instructions to G Boss not to ride the colt along in the early stages. He further added that Time To Reign had pleased the stable leading into todays race and had expected it to perform well albeit was carrying the top weight in today's race as compared to more seasoned horses. Stewards advised Mr Portelli that the colt would be required to barrier trial to their satisfaction prior to its next race start.

 

Sandbar – At the request from rider N Rawiller Sandbar was examined by the Club's Veterinary Officer and deemed suitable to race. Began awkwardly.

Big Duke – When questioned regarding the gelding racing in a more forward position rider N Rawiller stated that from a favourable barrier he had anticipated being closer but when Big Duke jumped well he took advantage of this and elected to go forward and cross Sixties Grove and Frankely Awesome. He added as a result Big Duke raced more forward than what he had intended and was also inclined to race keenly in the run and as a result was very one paced in the straight.

 

The Lord Mayor – From the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages.

Attention Run – Rider A Adkins stated that the gelding was inclined to race keenly in the early stages and as a result he allowed Carzoff to cross his mount near the 1600m. He added that in the middle stages Attention Run continued to race keenly and in the straight was one paced and in his onion may be looking for additional ground. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities.  

 

Primitivo – Slow to begin. Rider G Boss stated that when the pace of race steadied near the 800m he commenced a forward move on the gelding but from that point Primitivo hung out until near the 300m where the gelding straightened and he was able to apply full pressure and ride out his mount to the finish.

RACE 8: TAB Long May We Play Handicap 1500m:

Spencer – On jumping shifted out and made contact with New Arrangement. Rider N Rawiller advised from his wide barrier he had to some work to take up a position outside the lead, but in the straight the gelding responded only fairly to his riding and in his opinion may not have appreciated the seven day back up. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities. Trainer Mr B Baker concurred with the views of N Rawiller and advised that Spencer would now be given a freshen up prior to its next start. Mr Baker undertook to report back on the post-race condition of the gelding in the days subsequent.

 

Night Of Power – Slow to begin. Raced keenly in the middle stages. Rider J McDonald advised that in the straight the horse improved into the race as a winning chance but in his opinion over the concluding stages its condition gave out particularly in circumstances where it was stepping up in distance from its last start over 1300m and being first up on that occasion. Trainer Mr B Baker agreed with the assessment of J McDonald and advised that he would report back on the post-race condition of Night Of Power in the days subsequent.

 

New Arrangement – Shortly after the start was bumped by Spencer which shifted out and then from the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Raced keenly in the middle stages.

Hit The Target – Rider K McEvoy stated that whilst he had intended to race in the lead, he allowed Spencer to cross and obtain a favourable trailing position. He added in the straight Hit The Target did not respond to his riding and in his opinion may be looking for a firmer surface. He also added that he noted the gelding had its tongue over the bit on multiple occasions prior to the start and that Hit The Target may benefit from a tongue tie. A post-race race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities. Trainer Mr S Jones stated that Hit The Target did not handle today's track conditions and it is his intention to give the gelding a short let up prior to its next race start. Mr Jones undertook to report back on the post-race condition of Hit The Target in the days subsequent.
