Steward Report Predict Pace Map
HERO LOOK, which was fractious in the barriers, was slow to begin. ENJOY LIFE began only fairly. MERRYGOWIN and SHARPMIND bumped at the start. From a wide barrier, ACCESSION YEARS was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners. In the early stages, SHOW MISSION raced wide and without cover and then after the 800 Metres was ridden along to obtain a position outside the lead. Approaching the 600 Metres, ACCESSION YEARS was left racing wide and without cover. At the entrance to the Straight, LONDON CITY and MULTIMAX raced tight as LONDON CITY attempted to shift to the outside of SHOW MISSION. Passing the 200 Metres, MERRYGOWIN raced tight inside EVER STRONG when improving inside that horse. Close to the finishing line, SHOW MISSION was awkwardly placed inside the heels of SHARPMIND. When questioned, D Whyte (HERO LOOK) stated that prior to the 500 Metres he considered shifting out to follow ENJOY LIFE as CELESTIAL ARROW, the horse he had been following, was under heavy pressure prior to this point. He said as it appeared as though ENJOY LIFE was going to shift to the outside of PEACE ON EARTH after the 400 Metres, he elected not to shift out to follow that horse, rather to save ground by obtaining inside runs and then improving between CELESTIAL ARROW and ENJOY LIFE should that horse continue to shift out. He added however that at the entrance to the Straight ENJOY LIFE was directed back to the inside of PEACE ON EARTH which resulted in him having to shift to the outside of that horse to obtain clear running. He said he placed HERO LOOK under pressure in the early part of the Straight and the horse finished off the race only fairly. He said approaching the 100 Metres he was momentarily awkwardly placed between ACCESSION YEARS and PEACE ON EARTH which shifted out, however, this only had little impact on the horse’s finishing position as he was able to again ride it out in the run to the line. He added HERO LOOK did not feel comfortable in its action in the race. A veterinary inspection of HERO LOOK immediately following the race found that horse to be lame in the left front leg and to have a substantial amount of blood in its trachea on endoscopic examination. Before being allowed to race again, HERO LOOK will be subjected to an official veterinary examination. A veterinary inspection of MULTIMAX immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. SHARPMIND and MERRYGOWIN were sent for sampling. <30/10/2017 Additional Veterinary Report>After the race, HERO LOOK was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said at that time the horse was found to be lame in its left front leg and to have a substantial amount of blood in its trachea on endoscopic examination. HERO LOOK was again examined by the Veterinary Officer at the stables of Trainer C H Yip this morning. He said at this time he noted the horse to have a sore left front fetlock. As previously advised, HERO LOOK will be subjected to an official veterinary examination before being allowed to race again.
