Race 1: ALFIES EVENT HIRE Maiden Plate 2200 metres         
 
CRYPTO FIORELLI – Trainer D Batters was fined $100 under LR30 for failing to present the gelding on course by the prescribed time.
 
PRINCE HUSSON – Change of tactics; more forward. Ridden accordingly. After being restrained commenced to race ungenerously passing the winning post on the first occasion until the 1400m and then raced three wide without cover for the remainder. A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities. Trainer E Singh was advised that in light of today’s poor performance the horse will not be permitted to race at TAB venues until its form improves at NON-TAB venues. 
 
SOUTH SANTO – Approaching the winning post on the first occasion was tightened for room and had to be steadied. Shortly after had to be restrained and shifted out abruptly to avoid heels of PRINCE HUSSON which was restrained by its rider. A Thompson rider of PRINCE HUSSON was reprimanded under AR131(a) for the manner in which he restrained his mount.  Made the 1800m turn extremely wide and then raced wide until the 700m. A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities. Trainer M Kerr was advised that in light of today’s poor performance the horse will not be permitted to race at TAB venues until its form improves at NON-TAB venues. 
 
 
Race 2: PFD FOODSERVICES Fillies and Mares Maiden Handicap 1400 metres
 
OOZES CLASS – Held up for clear running rounding the home turn.
 
QUEEN LEAR – Began awkwardly and had to steady when placed in restricted room shortly after the start.  Near the 450m improved onto heels, shifted out to obtain clear running and bumped MUTIMILLY and again near the 400m became awkward at the heels of weakening OLIVIALEX.
 
OCTIC – Began awkwardly and bumped QUEEN LEAR. Over raced in the early stages.
 
OLIVIALEX – A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities. Trainer T Thomas was advised that in light of today’s poor performance the horse will not be permitted to race at TAB venues until its form improves at non-tab venues.  
 
WELL WELL WELL – Became awkward at heels approaching the 300m when attempting to secure clear running. Rider J Bayliss dropped his whip near the 50m. Rider J Bayliss reported that the mare laid in under pressure in the home straight.
 
CHLOE JADE – Trainer T Pascoe was fined $100 under LR30 for failing to present the mare on course by the prescribed time.
 
MULTIMILLY- Bumped near the 450m and became unbalanced. Rider A Allen reported that the mare laid in under pressure in the home straight.
 
 
Race 3: GARRARDS HORSE AND HOUND Class 4 Handicap 1000 metres
 
MICK THE HAT – Slow to begin.
 
WRITTEN WITH EASE – Began awkwardly. When asked to comment on performance which was below market expectations Rider T Harrison stated that prior to the event her pre-race plan was to lead if the horse began well. However, after beginning awkwardly she elected to take a position settling behind the leaders. She added that when rounding the home turn she placed the gelding under pressure it did not quicken and that she was reluctant to ride aggressively in the early stages as she had ridden the mare aggressively in its most recent start and felt that it had a detrimental affect on the horses finishing efforts. She further added that the horse may appreciate a step up in distance. A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.  
 
Race 4: ALL PEST QLD Class 4 Handicap 1400 metres
 
V J DAY – Laid out under pressure in the home straight.
 
METAMORPHIC – Inclined to lay in passing the 600m.

FEDERAL AGENT – Slow to begin. Over raced for a short distance when being restrained to obtain cover near the 1200m.
 
THUMBS UP – Slow to begin.
 
ZOUZOUZALO – Slow to begin.
 
 
Race 5: HENZELLS AGENCY Class 1 Handicap 1800 metres
 
GOLDEN MISSILE – When questioned in relation to the seemingly disappointing performance rider L Dittman stated that in his opinion the mare did not handle the step up in distance to 1800m as he was of the view that the horse was travelling strongly approaching the home turn however when asked to respond the mare failed to run on.
 
SPURIOUS – Began awkwardly and made contact with BRYBECK.
 
BRYBECK – Tightened for room on jumping and lost ground.
 
RIVER OF LOVE – Slow to begin.
