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.

Race 4: CHARTERS TOWERS AMATEUR CUP OPEN HANDICAP 1400m

THE DECKRAIDER- Shifted very wide from the 1300m to avoid the kickback.

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.
