MISHANI EPIC – When questioned, trainer L. Ross stated that the horse had worked well both before its prior start and today, however the win today was unexpected. He further stated that at its last start it had disappointed, however it was second up from a spell and this may have been a contributing factor.

Race 3: SOUTHS SPORTS CLUB BENCHMARK 75 H'CAP – 2425M
BREAKDANCE – Underwent a veterinary examination at the barriers and passed fit to race. Weakened badly in the home straight.

ROYAL ATOM – Resaddled at the barriers.
BROCSON – Made contact with METEOROLOGIST approaching the 600m when racing tight to the inside of HOLBROOK.

Race 6: ASCOT GREEN QTIS 3YO H'CAP – 1000M
GO DEEP – Slow to begin after rearing at the start. As a result the saddle shifted, placing rider B. Stewart at some difficulty throughout.
LE PALMIER – Raced keenly and three wide throughout.
XANTHUS – M. Cahill reported at scale that his mount was reluctant to stretch out and in his opinion failed to handle the track.
ORIENTAL GIRL – M. Hellyer was reminded to ride his mounts to the finish.
AIR SPIRIT – Slow to begin. Eased shortly after the start when awkwardly placed and crowded between MY BOY SAM, which steadied outwards away from MODELKA, which shifted inwards abruptly.

Race 9: EVA AIR CLASS 6 PLATE – 1200M
I AM VINNIE – Slow to begin. Raced three wide with cover throughout. Inconvenienced near the 500m. Brushed with BOOMTOWN LASS over the concluding stages.
MACEWEN – Blundered and checked near the 500m and thereafter was eased out of the race. On inquiry it was established that approaching the 500m ASHMAN was racing just off the fence and racing tight to the inside of BOOMTOWN LASS. Shortly after, ASHMAN rolled out marginally and TARDIS attempted to improve to its inside. ASHMAN then shifted in after making contact with BOOMTOWN LASS, with TARDIS then having to be eased and then laid outwards despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in MACEWEN being crowded, becoming awkwardly placed and clipping the heels of TARDIS. In the circumstances stewards were of the opinion that the incident was not the result of the carelessness of any rider. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no significant findings.
TISANI MAGIC – Slow to begin.
AMERICANA MAGIC – Raced three wide without cover throughout. Hampered near the 300m.
TANGO RAIN – Raced three wide in the early stages before being ridden forward to cross to the lead passing the 800m.

TARDIS – Inclined to lay out near the 300m and hampered AMERICANA MAGIC.
