Steward Report Predict Pace Map
CHEVALIER STAR proved difficult to load. Before being allowed to race again, CHEVALIER STAR will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test. WINNER ST PAUL’S shifted out at the start, resulting in TONES and LAUGHING LORD being hampered. TO-KALON lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and began only fairly. ULTIMATE WINNERS was slow to begin. Despite being ridden along in the early stages, MEDIC MASTER failed to muster speed. AMBITIOUS SPEEDY was shifted across behind runners in the early stages. After the 800 Metres, LAUGHING LORD was left racing wide and without cover. WINNER ST PAUL’S had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and again passing the 300 Metres. Passing the 400 Metres, TONES was awkwardly placed close to the heels of LAUGHING LORD when held up for a run behind that horse and inside MASTER MIND. TONES then had some difficulty obtaining clear running prior to the 200 Metres. Near the 150 Metres, JOLLY POSH momentarily raced tight inside WINNER ST PAUL’S which was taken in by JADE PIPPO which shifted in slightly under pressure before being corrected. Over the concluding stages, WINNER ST PAUL’S shifted out under pressure, causing JADE PIPPO to be inconvenienced. Also over the concluding stages, TELECOM BOSS and MASTER MIND raced tight. When questioned, T Berry stated that it had been hoped that CHEVALIER STAR, which was having its first race start today, would be able to take advantage of its inside barrier and obtain a forward position. He said however that CHEVALIER STAR began awkwardly and consequently lost ground which resulted in the horse settling at the rear of the field. He said due to the manner in which the horse began, he had to adjust his left foot in the stirrup iron shortly after the start. He said after travelling about 100 Metres he slapped his mount down the shoulder in an endeavour to have it make up lost ground, however, CHEVALIER STAR immediately commenced to get its head on the side and lay away from the inside rail. He said CHEVALIER STAR raced very greenly and continued to lay out away from other runners. He added due to CHEVALIER STAR being field-shy and wanting to shift ground, it was very awkward to ride, however, he placed the horse under pressure through the middle stages in an endeavour to have it as close to the field as possible. He said due to the manner in which CHEVALIER STAR was racing, he was reluctant to place the horse under full pressure early in the Straight as he was concerned it would continue to shift ground. He said despite this, when placed under pressure, CHEVALIER STAR finished off the race satisfactorily. A veterinary inspection of CHEVALIER STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. When questioned regarding his riding in the early stages, U Rispoli stated it had been intended for LAUGHING LORD to obtain a forward position. He said in the early stages he had intended to immediately shift across behind TONES which had drawn to the inside of LAUGHING LORD, however, that horse became unbalanced in its action approaching the 1100 Metres. He said after the 1100 Metres when TONES commenced to race more generously, he again steadied LAUGHING LORD with a view to shifting in behind that horse, however, LAUGHING LORD commenced to travel keenly and would not steady sufficiently to allow him to manoeuvre it in behind TONES to a position one horse off the rail with cover. He said this resulted in LAUGHING LORD having to race in a three wide position. He added making the first turn after the 900 Metres LAUGHING LORD continued to prove difficult to settle when left racing without cover. U Rispoli was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must ride his mounts in such a manner so as to ensure that they do not cover unnecessary ground wherever circumstances permit. A veterinary inspection of LAUGHING LORD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. FOREVER ACCURATE and WINNER ST PAUL’S were sent for sampling.
