RACE 1: Toyota Forklifts Handicap 1100m:
Everybody Rise– Inclined to lay out rounding the home turn.
Flying Argento– Began awkwardly.
Tensile– From the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages.
Vinniro– Began awkwardly, shifted out and made contact with Wandaye. Raced keenly in the early stages.
Canara– Raced greenly in the middle stages. When continuing to race greenly proved reluctant to shift to the outside of Vinniro in the early part of the straight. Near the 350m became awkwardly placed at the heels of Vinniro and, as a consequence, shift out abruptly and made contact with Wandaye.
Wandaye– On jumping was bumped by Vinniro, which shifted out. Approaching the 300m was hampered and carried wider by Canara when that runner shifted after becoming awkward on heels. Raced greenly when placed under pressure in the straight. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.
RACE 2: Precise Air Handicap 1400m:
Dolzino– T. Sherry reported that his mount travelled satisfactorily in the lead throughout the early and middle stages. He added that the gelding, which was still in its first racing preparation, was under pressure rounding the home turn and then was inclined to lay out near the 200m. He said that approaching the 100m he was obliged to stead Dolzino when it commenced to lay back in and the gelding then did not respond to his riding from that point. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.
Sensory– Began only fairly. T. Sherry (Dolzino) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding under AR131(a) in that approaching the 100m he permitted his mount to shift in when insufficiently clear of Sensory, resulting in that runner being hampered when crowded. T. Sherry’s licence to ride in races was suspended for a period to commence on Tuesday 21 November 2023 and to expire on Friday 24 November 2023, on which day he may ride. Over the concluding stages was unable to be fully tested when improving to be close to the heels of Vivezza.
Vivezza– On jumping was bumped by Waikato Girl, which shifted out.
Waikato Girl– On jumping shifted out and made contact with Vivezza.
RACE 3: Rosehill Bowling Club Handicap 1200m:
Fleetwood– Blundered on jumping, shifted out and made contact with Zouprince. App. Z. Lloyd reported that it was not intended to lead, however, after beginning well and when no other runner showed superior speed, he took advantage of his early positioning and held the lead.
Zouprince– On jumping was bumped by Fleetwood, which shifted out.
Runwiththetide– Began awkwardly. Raced keenly in the middle stages.
Dynamic One– Raced keenly after leaving the 1000m and then passing the 900m was checked from the heels of Fleetwood due to the slow tempo.
Armed Forces– K. McEvoy reported that when travelling wide and without cover approaching the first turn, he attempted to restrain the colt to obtain a position at the rear of the field. He said, however, that when the tempo of the race reduced at that point and Armed Forces commenced to race keenly, he was unable to achieve this and, as a consequence, the colt was obliged to race wide and without cover throughout the event.
RACE 4: Ghaiyyath First Yearlings Handicap 1500m:
Galaxy Belle – From the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages.
Molly Nails – Rounding the home turn was forced wider by Sky Diamonds, which laid out.
Miss Checkoni – Began awkwardly, shifted in and made contact with Sky Diamonds.
Mathrin – From a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages.
Justela – Began awkwardly.
Hope Uno – From a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages.
RACE 5: TAB Handicap 1300m:
Step Aside– Held up from the 400m until passing the 250m.
Iron Will– J. Ford stated that Iron Will settled in a prominent position as per its normal racing pattern, however, did not respond to his riding in the straight and, in his opinion, raced like a horse that had come to the end of its preparation. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Trainer Ms T. Burleigh undertook to report back to Stewards on the immediate racing future of the gelding.
The King– When questioned C. Schofield stated that he was instructed to ride the gelding in or near the lead. He said that after beginning satisfactorily he immediately observed Cloudland, which was drawn to his inside, being ridden along to hold the lead. He said that as his mount has in the past had a tendency to race keenly, he was reluctant to ride forward with that runner, therefore, he elected to shift in to obtain cover behind Cloudland where his mount travelled comfortably. He said that on straightening The King was held up behind Cloudland and Iron Will and as Cloudland was a favoured runner he felt it would quicken to allow him to force out from the inside of Iron Will. He said, however, that when Cloudland did not quicken as he expected, The King remained held up until the 150m when he was able to shift out from behind that runner to obtain clear running. He said that once into clear running The King finished off its race well.
Atlantic Ocean– T. Schiller reported that Atlantic Ocean travelled well in a midfield position in the early and middle stages. He added, however, that the gelding was one-paced when placed under pressure in the straight and he recommended to connections that, in his opinion, Atlantic Ocean may be suited with blinkers being reapplied to its race gear. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.
Miss Faberge– Began only fairly and from a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages.
Seething Seb– Began only fairly.
RACE 6: James Squire Handicap 1800m:
State Of America– Raced ungenerously with its head up in the early stages.
Xtrarevz– N. Rawiller reported that, as notified to the Stewards, from the outside barrier he rode his mount in a forward position. He added, however, that Xtrarevz came under heavy pressure from the 700m and when the gelding did not respond to his riding and commenced to give ground soon after straightening he then eased Xtrarevz down from the 200m when he felt there may have been something amiss. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Trainer Mr J. Sargent expressed disappointment with the performance of Xtrarevz and advised that the gelding will undergo a thorough veterinary examination on return to the stables where blood samples will be obtained. Mr Sargent undertook to report back to Stewards the results of such examinations, at which time the Stewards will determine what, if any, embargo is placed on Xtrarevz.
Buillt– From a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the straight.
The Englishman– Slow to begin and from its wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages.
Youthfull– Raced wide and without cover for the majority of the event.
RACE 7: Headwater @ Vinery Stud Handicap 1500m:
Famous Pedrille– App. A. McLucas reported that her mount travelled too keenly in the lead and added that, in her opinion, Famous Pedrille did not run out the 1500m distance. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.
Hokkaido– Passing the 1200m shifted out slightly and was eased from the heels of Clear Choice.
The Replicant– Held up from the 400m until leaving the 200m.
Pure Hydrogen– Began awkwardly and from its wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages.
Master Copy– Held up for clear running in the early part of the straight.
Ring Ahoy– Slow to begin and from the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Held up from the 350m until approaching the 200m. Ring Ahoy again was held up from the 150m until inside the 100m.
Yet He Moves– Began awkwardly and from a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Leaving the 1200m was checked from the heels of Futtaim. In this incident Yet He Moves stumbled. R. Bayliss reported that his mount was not suited by the tempo of the race and, in his opinion, would be better suited being stepped back up in distance. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.,
Futtaim– Leaving the 1200m was steadied from the heels of Hokkaido,
