Race 1 THe north ringwood football club maiden plate - 1000 metres:

Wammo Began awkwardly and was then slow into stride.

Skilloni Slow into stride.

Red Moon Miss Raced wide in the early and middle stages. Passing the 700m dipped and shifted in slightly bumping Kuroyume.

Kuroyume Passing the 700m was inclined to shift away from Red Moon Miss, and was then bumped when Red Moon Miss dipped and shifted in slightly.

Persue Passing the 700m when racing tightly to the inside of Kuroyume, clipped the heels of Brightful that had changed legs and shifted away from the rail slightly. Stewards were of the opinion that Kuroyume was a major factor in Persue clipping the heels of Brightful, due to its shifting away from Red Moon Miss which was tight to its outside, therefore stewards did not feel that the incident was the fault of any one rider. Stewards however, did speak to G Brunsdon advisedly regarding giving extra room to runners on his inside when approaching a turn.

Brightful Passing the 700m changed legs and became unbalanced, shifting out slightly.

Race 2 The prestigious rich sweeney bucks day trophy race (3) handicap 1000 metres:

Dandarbong Began awkwardly.

Little Red Rooster Trainer A Goble reported that the gelding was suited by the step back in distance today to 1000m.

Race 3 racv country club open trophy handicap 1200m metres:

Race 3 was delayed by 5 minutes due to Unruly Student being replated and Punjab Rocket being rebandaged.

Prior to correct weight, Rider C Pace asked to view the film as she believed the gates were delayed in opening. Stewards viewed the film with C Pace and trainer D Dwyer. Stewards believed that on the vision available it was difficult to determine whether the gate hadnt opened with the other gates, and were of the opinion as it hadnt affected the placings and therefore the mare was declared a runner.

Unruly Student Replated near fore prior to the race.

Punjab Rocket The T & J Kilgower stable were reminded of their obligation to stitch elastoplast bandages.

Sheer Force Began awkwardly. Near the 600m brushed the rail and became unbalanced.

She reported that her instructions were to go forward and let the horse travel and not to restrain, and this was the reason she was satisfied with her position on terms with the leader. She stated she had previously ridden the gelding in this manner when successful.

Melomane Near the 1100m had to ease from the heels of Tycoon Bill.

Sinister Sums Raced wide without cover throughout. Near the 400m was eased when crowded between Cosmic Scoop and Rets.
