Race 1 its grealy great! maiden plate - 1350 metres:

As todays racebook had inadvertently left out horses 6 (Periartie) and 7 (Unbridled Princess), Stewards alerted both the public and betting media on numerous occasions to ensure that everyone was aware that the two horses were runners.

Prior to correct weight apprentice T. Grace, rider of No Sweat (3rd placegetter), viewed the official photo finish image before agreeing with the judges decision and correct weight was declared.
