Race 1: MINJAR GOLD QTIS MAIDEN PLATE 1000m
 
CLAIRVUE SAGA- After racing on the 13th of October 2020, underwent a pre-race veterinary examination and was passed fit to start.
 
LINGY- Stewards inquired into the circumstances surrounding Trainers representative Mr C Rafter saddling and presenting the incorrect horse to the mounting yard for pre-race inspection. Mr Rafter advised that he had erred by saddling and presenting ISA PRINCESS rather than LINGY after becoming disordered as to the two horse’s identities. Trainer T Parry pleaded guilty to a charge under the provisions of AR99(b) in that she as the Trainer of LINGY was responsible for the incorrect runner being presented to the mounting yard for pre-race inspection. Miss Parry was subsequently fined the sum of $400 and advised of her rights to an internal review. The start was delayed when the gelding required the saddle to be adjusted at the barriers.
 
ROYAL RUSKI- Began awkwardly.
 
MOLONGLE SURPRISE- Dwelt in the barriers before beginning awkwardly and shifting out on jumping. Raced wide early.

WE’LL BEAT IT- Stewards granted permission for Jockey T Bannon to ride the gelding 2.5kg over its allotted weight as no other rider was available. Raced wide the majority.
 
SIZZLESUN- Slow to begin. Failed to muster the early speed to maintain contact with the field and tailed the field throughout before finishing the race off well.
 
ANNE CATHERINE- Raced wide early. On returning to scale Jockey P Romeo advised that his saddle slipped passing the 100m placing him at a slight disadvantage from that point.
 
 
 
Race 4: CHARTERS TOWERS AMATEUR CUP OPEN HANDICAP 1400m
 
MARTIAL ART- Began awkwardly and bumped with another runner. Jockey P Romeo was reprimanded under the provisions of AR132(7)(a)(ii) in that he did use his whip on 6 occasions, 1 more than permitted, prior to the 100m.
 
CHARLIE CAT- Bumped with another runner on jumping.
 
THE DECKRAIDER- Shifted very wide from the 1300m to avoid the kickback.

FLUIDITY- After racing on the 13th of October 2020, underwent a pre-race veterinary examination and was passed fit to start. Slow to begin. Raced keenly for a short distance passing the 1400m when being restrained in an effort to settle in a forward position off the pace. Jockey P Romeo was reprimanded under the provisions of AR132(7)(a)(ii) in that he did use his whip on 6 occasions, 1 more than permitted, prior to the 100m.
 
FIRE RANGER- The start of the race was delayed when the gelding required re-saddling at the barriers. Slow to begin. Jockey K Aho advised that her saddle slipped near the 500m placing her at a disadvantage from that point. Finished tailed off. A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.
