Steward Report Predict Pace Map
Whilst in the saddling stalls, FANTASTICLIFE had its right front plate refitted. FANTASTICLIFE was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race. TELECOM PRINCE began awkwardly and lost ground. FANTASTICLIFE began awkwardly and shortly after the start was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ALL MY BENEFIT which got its head up and shifted out. GOOD FRIENDS MAGIC shifted out on jumping and bumped ON THE WAY. SHANTARAAM was slow to begin and shortly after the start was taken across behind runners from the outside barrier. Also from a wide barrier, CHINA GOOD was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners. Approaching the 1300 Metres, GOOD FRIENDS MAGIC got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover. For some distance approaching and passing the 1200 Metres, SHANTARAAM proved difficult to settle. After the 1100 Metres, BEST JADE TRIUMPH was left racing wide and without cover. After the 900 Metres, ON THE WAY became unbalanced. Passing the 300 Metres, both ON THE WAY and GOOD FRIENDS MAGIC were checked when simultaneously attempting a tight run between MAGICAL BEAM and NATURAL EIGHT. At the 200 Metres, NATURAL EIGHT was bumped by JUN HAO which got its head on the side and shifted out. Approaching the 100 Metres, NATURAL EIGHT raced in restricted room between MAGICAL BEAM and JUN HAO which continued to lay out. Over the final 50 Metres, GOOD FRIENDS MAGIC was checked when unable to improve due to racing on the heels of TRAVEL MASTER and CHINA GOOD. When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of JUN HAO, D Whyte stated that although his mount was inclined to travel strongly for a short distance after the 800 Metres, overall he was satisfied with the manner in which it travelled in the early and middle stages. He said at the entrance to the Straight he shifted JUN HAO out to improve around TRAVEL MASTER and JUN HAO immediately commenced to get its head on the side and lay out. He said he placed JUN HAO under pressure after the 400 Metres and the horse then commenced to hang out and proved difficult to ride. A veterinary inspection of JUN HAO immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea. Before being allowed to race again, JUN HAO will be subjected to an official veterinary examination. When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of NATURAL EIGHT, C Y Ho stated that unlike last Wednesday night when successful, NATURAL EIGHT was more worked up prior to the start today and was fractious in the barriers. He said he was able to obtain a good position on NATURAL EIGHT during the race, however, the horse came under pressure prior to the Home Turn and then when asked for an effort in the Straight did not respond to his riding and was disappointing. He added that the only reason he could offer for the horse’s disappointing performance was the fact that it may not have backed up after its run last Wednesday night. A veterinary inspection of NATURAL EIGHT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. JUN HAO, FANTASTICLIFE and P J HALL were sent for sampling.
