Steward Report Predict Pace Map
WONDERFUL TIGER was slow to begin. SPORTS MASTER began only fairly. DYNAMIC LIONS shifted in on jumping, resulting in RISING POWER, which was slow to begin, being steadied away from the heels of that horse. Leaving the 1100 Metres, STARLIT KNIGHT was steadied away from the heels of SPORTS MASTER which shifted out to assume the positon with cover behind DYNAMIC LIONS. At the entrance to the Straight, GOLD TALENT shifted out in order to improve between SPORTS MASTER and STARLIT KNIGHT, resulting in GOLD TALENT making contact with the hindquarters of STARLIT KNIGHT. Then near the 250 Metres, GOLD TALENT was steadied when disappointed for running between SPORTS MASTER and STARLIT KNIGHT which shifted in after being contacted by GOLD TALENT. At the 100 Metres, J Moreira’s (I’M A WITNESS) whip was knocked from his grasp by the whip of O Doleuze (FIVE STARS AGENT). When questioned, Apprentice C Wong stated that he was instructed to allow UNIQUE JOYFUL to use its natural speed and to obtain a position where it was comfortable, anticipating that this may be somewhere in midfield or just in advance of midfield. He said UNIQUE JOYFUL showed average pace from the barriers and approaching the winning post on the first occasion he steadied his mount in the hope that he may find a position closer to the rail in about midfield. He said however that as he was shifting in, he became aware of GENERAL O’REILLY improving to his inside which left UNIQUE JOYFUL racing three wide but initially with cover behind STARLIT KNIGHT. He said when STARLIT KNIGHT improved forward and shifted in to a position one horse off the rail, he decided to steady UNIQUE JOYFUL and take up the position behind GENERAL O’REILLY rather than being obliged to race wide and without cover. He said this resulted in UNIQUE JOYFUL unexpectedly settling at the tail of the field. He added UNIQUE JOYFUL did not feel comfortable in its action during the event and raced disappointingly. A veterinary inspection of UNIQUE JOYFUL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. Before being allowed to race again, UNIQUE JOYFUL will be subjected to an official veterinary examination. When questioned, A Sanna stated that he was instructed to ride RUGBY DIAMOND from back in the field to assist the horse in being able to run the 1650 Metres. He further advised that on jumping RUGBY DIAMOND began awkwardly and bounded in the air which resulted in him losing the use of his left stirrup iron which he was able to regain after travelling a short distance. When questioned, Trainer A T Millard confirmed that he had instructed Jockey Sanna to ride the horse from back in the field as RUGBY DIAMOND was stepping up significantly in distance to 1650 Metres for the first time. He said it was considered preferable for the horse to be ridden quietly to see if it would assist RUGBY DIAMOND in being able to close off the race. After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that FIVE STARS AGENT had sustained a laceration to the left hind heel. A veterinary inspection of DYNAMIC LIONS immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse’s trachea. I’M A WITNESS, STARLIT KNIGHT and RISING POWER were sent for sampling.
