Steward Report Predict Pace Map
ANIMATION MASTER, which began only fairly, was crowded for room shortly after the start between PROMPT EXPRESS and HAPPY HOMING which shifted out. BACK IN BLACK and WINNING BOY were shifted across behind runners in the early stages from wide barriers. Passing the 1150 Metres, WORLD CITY was steadied away from the heels of FUN TAPESTRY which shifted out after being brushed by JOLLY POSH. At the 900 Metres, MASSIVE POWER became unbalanced. Rounding the Home Turn, HAPPY HOMING was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FUN TAPESTRY. Approaching the 150 Metres, ANIMATION MASTER, which was finishing off the race fairly, was shifted in away from the heels of MY LEGEND in an attempt to obtain clear running. ANIMATION MASTER was then badly held up for clear running behind LYRIC ACE and outside HAPPY HOMING and near the 100 Metres attempted to improve into tight running between LYRIC ACE and HAPPY HOMING which was not properly available which resulted in ANIMATION MASTER being checked when unable to continue to improve and HAPPY HOMING becoming unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by ANIMATION MASTER. Near the 50 Metres, WINNING BOY was shifted out away from the heels of BACK IN BLACK to obtain clear running. When questioned, J Moreira stated that he had not been given any specific instructions on how to ride KYNAM, rather he was to assess the situation depending on how KYNAM began, particularly as the horse had drawn a wide barrier over the 1200 Metres. He said just prior to the start being effected KYNAM turned its head to the right and this resulted in the horse missing the start. He said he then shifted KYNAM across behind runners and immediately commenced to ride his mount along in an attempt to improve its position. He said throughout the early and middle stages KYNAM appeared to resent racing back in the field as, despite being vigorously ridden along, the horse became detached from the field and was reluctant to improve its position. He added KYNAM gradually commenced to improve its position after the 500 Metres to the point where it was able to tack on to the back of the field rounding the Home Turn. He said after the 300 Metres he observed that PROMPT EXPRESS was weakening rapidly and he attempted to shift away from behind that horse, however, KYNAM initially proved reluctant to shift to the outside of PROMPT EXPRESS which resulted in KYNAM having to be severely checked away from the heels of that horse after the 250 Metres. He said prior to this incident, having in mind the way that KYNAM had improved into the race rounding the Home turn, he felt as though the horse was going to finish off the race strongly. A veterinary inspection of KYNAM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. When questioned, B Prebble stated that he was not able to offer any excuse for the disappointing performance of FUN TAPESTRY. He said after enjoying a good run throughout the race, FUN TAPESTRY weakened out of the race badly in the Straight. He said FUN TAPESTRY did not feel completely comfortable in its action during the race and, in his opinion, appeared to be restricted in its action in front. A veterinary inspection of FUN TAPESTRY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. Before being allowed to race again, FUN TAPESTRY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination. When questioned, H W Lai stated that after being able to obtain a forward position on PROMPT EXPRESS in the early stages, it was of concern how abruptly his mount gave ground rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight. He said the manner in which PROMPT EXPRESS became unbalanced in its action and weakened concerned him at the time that it may have broken down, however, after the race the horse proceeded back to the unsaddling area sound. A veterinary inspection of PROMPT EXPRESS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. The performance of PROMPT EXPRESS was considered unacceptable. Before being allowed to race again, PROMPT EXPRESS will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination. JOLLY POSH, BACK IN BLACK and WORLD CITY were sent for sampling.
