WIND N GRASS and SHANGHAI GRACE were crowded for room on jumping between MOERAKI and GOOD LUCK FRIEND, both of which shifted ground.
BIG BROOK was crowded for room on jumping between ROMANTIC COMBO and BIZ POWER which was taken in by KEEP YOU WARM which got its head on the side and shifted in. After this, BIG BROOK and BIZ POWER were shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.
From the outside barrier, HAPPY TIME was steadied and shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
For the majority of the race, ROMANTIC COMBO travelled wide and without cover and at the 700 Metres was taken wider again by CALIFORNIA LEVEE which was taken out by GOOD LUCK FRIEND which shifted out from behind CRUISING. CALIFORNIA LEVEE then raced wide and without cover for the remainder of the race.
Approaching the 500 Metres, BIZ POWER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MOERAKI.
Near the 350 Metres, WIND N GRASS raced tight inside KEEP YOU WARM which lay in.
A veterinary inspection of WIND N GRASS and HAPPY TIME immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
GOOD LUCK FRIEND and BIZ POWER were sent for sampling.
