THE DODGER (V Duric) was slow to begin.
SMART FORTUNE (I Saifudin) and ROYAL EASTER (A Munro) were both
crowded shortly after the start, between HIGH COUNCIL (O Placais), which
jumped inwards and SUPERMART (S Sam), which shifted outwards.
Shortly after passing the 1200m, MEAISIN (M Ewe) steadied when
awkwardly placed on the heels of MARK ECLIPSE (CW Brown), which rolled
outwards marginally away from HIGH COUNCIL.
MASTER BANGER (S John) raced keenly in the backstraight and near the
800m, lost ground after getting its head up when laying outwards. This
resulted in XZUBERANCE (K Fujii), which was following, being inconvenienced
and taken wider.
SILENT CONNECTION (A Da Silva) raced wide from the 1600m.
MASTER BANGER was held up and unable to improve between the 600m and
ROYAL EASTER was held up and unable to obtain a clear run between the
400m and the 200m.
Near the 150m, PRATT STREET (G Boss) checked when racing between
SMART FORTUNE and HIGH COUNCIL. FREE HAPPY (J Powell), which was
following, had to be steadied outwards in consequence. An Inquiry into this
incident will be held at a date to be fixed.
Passing the 50m, PRATT STREET became unbalanced after being bumped by
The Farrier reported that HIGH COUNCIL returned having cast its near-fore
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on FREE HAPPY which
revealed that the horse returned lame off-fore. FREE HAPPY will be required
to pass a 1000m gallop trial and veterinary examination prior to being
declared to race again.
Jockey John, when questioned regarding the run of MASTER BANGER, stated
that the gelding proved difficult to settle throughout and ran home fairly
when placed under pressure in the straight. Whilst noting his explanation,
Jockey John was reminded to ride in a manner not to arouse query.
