Race 1: LASER CLINICS AUSTRALIA BENCHMARK 60 H'CAP – 1210M
The declaration of correct weight was delayed to allow the connections of MASSIVE ATTACK and the stewards to view the footage of the start to ascertain whether the gelding should be declared a non-runner. After viewing the videos it was ascertained that MASSIVE ATTACK was fractious in the barriers and began awkwardly of its own accord and as such, other than for its own manners, the gelding was afforded a fair start. Stewards therefore deemed the horse to be a runner and declared correct weight.
MAHARNI – Began awkwardly.
BOILING – Raced three wide without cover throughout.
SIR BAM – Overraced passing the 800m. Held up for clear running between the 350m and the 150m until shifting out in an attempt to improve.

WICCAN REDE – Held up from the 400m to the 150m and was disappointed for a run on a couple of occasions between MESSAGE TO MARTHA and MAHARNI.
MESSAGE TO MARTHA – Brushed the running rail of its own accord passing the 900m and then laid in under pressure over the final 150m.
MASSIVE ATTACK – Lunged forward as the start was effected and after jumping shifted out abruptly, unbalancing its rider, who lost the use of his irons for a distance until approaching the 700m, and after racing in a rearward position for the majority of the event took no real competitive part.

Race 3: ANN & HELEN BIRTHDAY WEEKEND CLASS 1 H'CAP – 1640M
WINERIES was a late scratching at 5:05 pm due to a float breakdown.
The declaration of correct weight was delayed to allow R. Goltz, the rider of 2nd placegetter FIRST WITNESS, and apprentice H. English, the rider of 4th placegetter FURY OF THE STORM, to view the photo finish image. After doing so, both riders indicated that they were satisfied with the Judge’s placings and correct weight was declared.
