RACE 1:  Lack Group – West Tradies Plate 1100m

Pythia – late withdrawal on veterinary advice at 11.20am when it was found the filly had abraded both hind bumpers en route to the course.  Trainer Mr N Mayfield-Smith was advised a veterinary clearance would be required prior to Pythia racing again.

 

Catanzaro – the colt, which had been fractious in the barriers, began awkwardly and made contact with the near-side portion of its barrier.  Despite being ridden along took some time to muster speed.

 

Stunts – from its wide barrier steadied and shifted in behind runners shortly after the start.

 

Hemsted – when placed under pressure over the final 250m had a tendency to lay in.  A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities other than the colt lost its off-fore plate.

 

Tactical Formation – App. A Adkins (Hemsted) was reprimanded for permitting his mount to shift in near the 800m, causing Catanzaro to be taken in, resulting in Tactical Formation having to be steadied.  Rider J Parr stated, after his mount suffered some interference near the 800m, the colt laid out for the major part of the race and he noted passing the winning post it had got its tongue over the bit.  A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Gone West – a post-race veterinary examination revealed a laceration to the off-fore heel.

 

RACE 2:  CFMEU Mining Handicap 1300m

Kandy – slow to begin.  From its wide barrier steadied and shifted in behind runners shortly after the start.

 

Unforgotten – slow to begin.  From its wide barrier steadied and shifted in behind runners shortly after the start.

 

Can Party – slow to begin.  Made contact at the start with Go Daddy Go.  For some distance approaching the 800m raced in restricted room between Go Daddy Go and Marsupial (D Browne), which was proving difficult to control and during this time was laying in.  Shortly after the 800m Can Party lost its position when crowded by Marsupial, which was taken in slightly by Rekindled Force (App. A Adkins).  Both D Browne and App. A Adkins were advised that they should do their utmost to ensure that their fellow riders are provided with sufficient room in similar circumstances.

 

Go Daddy Go – slow to begin.  Made contact at the start with Can Party.

 

Marsupial – in the early and middle stages pulled hard, proved difficult to control and, after being awkwardly placed on the heels of Rekindled Force near the 700m, was shifted out and raced wide without cover throughout.  The racing manners of Marsupial were brought to the attention of stable representative Mr D Beadman.

 

Rekindled Force – when questioned regarding the disappointing performance, App. A Adkins stated he had to make some use of his mount in the early stages to cross and take up a position outside the leader Beacon.  He said, whilst his mount travelled well after that point, the colt came under pressure when Marsupial raced to his outside near the 600m.  He added from that point Rekindled Force was a beaten horse and he was of the view that, although the colt was only having its third start prior to today., it may have reached the end of its preparation.  A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.  The future race plans and post-race condition of Rekindled Force will be followed up with trainer Mr P Messara.

 

RACE 3:  AMWU Handicap 1100m

Pick Me Up – the gelding, which was fractious in the barriers and standing awkwardly, was slow to begin (2L).  When questioned, App. C Van Der Werf stated, after being slow to begin, her mount travelled towards the rear of the field, which was contrary to the pre-race plan.  She also indicated it was the stable's preference to ensure if possible that she make her run to the outside in the straight.  She said her mount never really travelled and for this reason approaching and rounding the home turn she elected to ensure that the gelding was properly balanced before riding it out as best she was able in the straight, adding that Pick Me Up closed off only one-paced.  App. Van Der Werf was advised that notwithstanding her instructions, she should have made more effort to improve her position along the inside after the 600m to the home turn.

 

Diamond Oasis – from its wide barrier steadied and shifted in behind runners shortly after the start.

 

Ozark – from its wide barrier steadied and shifted in behind runners shortly after the start.  For some distance approaching the 800m raced keenly and had to be checked off the heels of Diamond Oasis.

 

Salerno – raced wide without cover throughout.

 

Tango Rain – when questioned regarding the disappointing performance, rider D Browne stated that in the early stages his mount had to do considerable work to offset being wide and without cover.  He said in the early stages when Noble Joey maintained its position he elected to proceed forward and cross to the fence after the 800m.  He added he believed that the early effort required of Tango Rain to lead was the principal reason for it weakening over the latter stages.  A post-race veterinary examination revealed the horse to be displaying a poor post-race recovery and to be coughing.  Trainer's representative Mr S Alexiou was advised a veterinary clearance, including the results of a satisfactory endoscopic examination, must be furnished prior to Tango Rain racing again.

 

Best Guess – App. L Magorrian pleaded guilty to a charge under AR137A(5)(a)(i) in that he used the whip on five consecutive occasions prior to the 100m.  App. Magorrian was fined the sum of $400.

 

RACE 4:  Turner Freeman Handicap 1800m

Black On Gold – slow to begin.

 

Prince Cheri – from its wide barrier steadied and shifted in behind runners shortly after the start.

 

Dark Eyes – App. R King explained, after travelling well in second position, her mount was under heavy pressure to maintain its position approaching and rounding the home turn.  She said the gelding did not respond as she had hoped and over the final 200m weakened noticeably.  App. King added in her opinion Dark Eyes may benefit by having its runs spaced in future.  A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Collateral – when questioned regarding the disappointing performance, rider J Ford stated that, whilst parading behind the barriers, Collateral had a tendency to get its tongue over the bit on a number of occasions, which was rectified prior to the start being effected.  He added that he was confident of his mount's chances having regard to the manner in which it travelled throughout the event, however rounding the home turn Collateral was under pressure when New Tipperary improved to his outside and it failed to respond to his riding thereafter.  J Ford noted after the race the gelding had its tongue over the bit and he believed this was the reason for its failure in today's race.  A post-race veterinary examination revealed abrasions to both hind bumpers.  Mr J Bruce, representing trainer Mr B Baker, advised that he noted when the gelding had returned to the enclosure it had its tongue over the bit and he believed this would have accounted for its performance.  He indicated the stable will now experiment with gear to this issue.

 

RACE 5:  TAB Highway Handicap 1200m

Menneke Belle – began awkwardly, shifted out acutely and made heavy contact with O'Lordy.  In the incident O'Lordy became badly unbalanced and lost ground.

 

Realing – after beginning only fairly, was severely checked on jumping when crowded for room between Southern Flight, which shifted out, and Arrondissement, which was taken in by Neyla's Girl.  For some distance in the early part of the straight was shifted out to continue into clear running and, after being positioned to the outside of Equal Balance, closed the race off well.

 

Arrondissement – shortly after the start had to be steadied to avoid the heels of Neyla's Girl (M Heagney), which shifted in when not clear.  M Heagney was reprimanded and advised that he would be expected to make a greater effort to prevent his mounts from shifting in.

 

Neyla's Girl – raced wide without cover throughout.

 

Equal Balance – raced wide without cover throughout.  A post-race veterinary examination of the gelding, which raced four wide without cover, did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

I Am Captain – Near the 900m I Am Captain was tightened when Undaoaf (App. L Magorrian) shifted in when not clear.  App. Magorrian was advised to exercise more care.  After being crossed by Undaoaf, I Am Captain got its head up and proved difficult to settle for a short distance thereafter.  Approaching the 150m I Am Captain and Tiger By The Tale raced in restricted room and then made contact when crowded for room initially by Undaoaf, which shifted in and also O'Lordy (K O'Hara) which, when under pressure, commenced to shift out, accentuating the incident.  K O'Hara was advised that she would be expected to stop riding and straighten her mounts sooner than she did on this occasion.  A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Undaoaf – near the 900m, when being shifted out to relieve tightening, became awkwardly placed on the heels of Penny SharesUndaoaf then made contact with Neyla's Girl after the 800m.  Approaching the winning post Undaoaf and Tiger By The Tale raced in restricted room.  M Heagney (Neyla's Girl) pleaded guilty of a charge of careless riding under AR137(a) in that passing the winning post he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of Undaoaf, which was checked, clipped the heels of Neyla's Girl and dislodged its rider App. L Magorrian.  M Heagney's licence to ride in races was suspended for a period to commence on Friday, 10 November 2017 and to expire on Thursday, 30 November 2017, on which day he may ride.

 

RACE 6:  The Lidoran Group Handicap 1800m

Lord Kingsley – the declaration of correct weight was delayed to enable J Taylor, rider of 2nd placegetter Lord Kingsley, to view the patrol films of the latter stages of the race to ascertain whether or not there were grounds for objection against Carzoff.  As J Taylor was satisfied there were no grounds for objection and Stewards were similarly satisfied, correct weight was declared.  It was established that approaching the winning post Lord Kingsley, which was laying in, shifted ground, resulting in Carzoff and Lord Kingsley racing tight over the latter stages.  Raced keenly in the early stages.  J Taylor pleaded guilty to a charge under AR137A(5)(a)(ii) in that she used the whip on nine occasions prior to the 100m.  J Taylor was fined $400.  When questioned, rider J Taylor explained that inside the 50m her mount commenced to lay in and raced tight to the outside of Carzoff, restricting her ability to fully test her mount.  She said, as she was concerned that Lord Kingsley would continue to shift in, she endeavoured to straighten her mount over the final stride, which in the opinion of the Stewards may have prejudiced her chances of winning the race.  Having regard to the circumstances, the Stewards were of the view the corrective measures Ms J Taylor took were appropriate.

 

Mortar Platoon – slow to begin and then was hampered by Victime De L'Amour, which shifted in.  A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.  Mr C Duckworth, representing trainer Mr C Waller, was unable to offer any tangible excuse for the disappointing performance of Mortar Platoon, other than to advise that the rider indicated to him the gelding did not feel free in its action for the major part of the race.  Stewards will follow up the condition of Mortar Platoon in the days subsequent.

 

Carzoff – slow to begin.

 

Social Element – on jumping Social Element and Impavido were bumped when crowded between Cogliere and Mornington, which shifted out.  Social Element then took some time to muster speed and was able to race outside the leader passing the 1000m.  Raced wide without cover until the 1000m.  A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Zamex – near the 600m was steadied when disappointed for a run between Impavido and Lord Kingsley (J Taylor), which shifted out when not clear.  J Taylor was advised to exercise more care.

Victime De L'Amour – App. B Ryan stated, after setting a genuine tempo in the lead, his mount failed to sustain its effort and weakened over the final stages.  Trainer Mr T Martin advised that, as the gelding performed below expectations, he will have the gelding vetted and will forward the results to the Stewards.

 

RACE 7:  Blacktown Workers Handicap 1100m

In Times Of War – as the start was effected turned its head to the off-side and consequently began awkwardly and lost ground.  For some distance approaching and passing the 800m raced ungenerously and got its head up on a number of occasions.  Then near the 500m again got its head up when being steadied after becoming awkwardly placed on the heels of Rebel Miss.  For a short distance approaching the 50m In Times Of War was not ridden out in its normal manner when positioned tight to the inside of Gwenneth, which shifted in slightly.

Sweet Serendipity – rider K O'Hara stated that for the major part of the race her mount was pressured when Coolring was racing directly to her outside.  She said Sweet Serendipity is better suited when able to dictate terms in front and she believed the manner in which the race was run did not suit the gelding.  A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

My Country – App. A Adkins pleaded guilty to a charge under AR137A(5)(a)(i) and AR137A(5)(a)(ii) in that he used the whip on ten occasions prior to the 100m, inclusive of five successive strikes.  App. Adkins was fined $300 under AR137A(5)(a)(ii).  A reprimand was recorded under AR137A(5)(a)(i).

Crafty Crop – when questioned regarding the disappointing performance, App. B McDougall stated, after being crossed by Tudor in the early stages, his mount commenced to race keenly for some distance thereafter and was unable to settle the gelding.  He said the manner in which Crafty Cop raced in the middle section of the event resulted in his mount failing to finish its race off.  A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Siren's Fury – rider J Taylor explained that as is usual the mare settled towards the rear of the field.  She said in the early part of the straight, whilst there was an opportunity for her to improve to the inside of Bring A Secret, she observed Wayanka commencing to shift out and, as she believed she would be disappointed for the run, she continually brought her mount to the outside of Galaxy Warrior to secure clear running.  She added as a consequence Siren's Fury was held up until approaching the 250m, whereby it commenced to finish off strongly.
