Steward Report Predict Pace Map
CHARITY GRAND was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore). Before being allowed to race again, CHARITY GRAND will be subjected to an official veterinary examination. DREAM WARRIORS began only fairly. HAPPY WARRIOR (Apprentice C Wong) lost ground on jumping when crowded for room between GOOD FOR YOU which was taken out by SALTO OLIMPICO and ACCLAIMED LIGHT which was turned in across the running by HAPPY WARRIOR after being bumped on the hindquarters by that horse. This resulted in HAPPY WARRIOR settling back in the field. When questioned, Apprentice Wong stated that after losing ground at the start when crowded for room, he elected to shift HAPPY WARRIOR across behind runners to obtain cover as it was no longer available for him to obtain a forward position. He said after passing the winning post on the first occasion he attempted to shift in behind GOOD FOR YOU and obtain a position one horse off the rail, however, GENTRY improved its position quickly to be racing between HAPPY WARRIOR and REMARKABLE and for this reason he was not able to shift in. He said this resulted in HAPPY WARRIOR being left racing in a three wide position without cover after the 1300 Metres. He said when the pace of the race slackened after the 1200 Metres, he attempted to slowly improve his way forward in the hope of being able to obtain a more prominent position closer to the rail. He said he gradually improved his position and had intended to continue to allow HAPPY WARRIOR to gain ground in the hope of racing outside the leader SPARKLING SWORD. He said however that SALTO OLIMPICO shifted out passing the 900 Metres which resulted in HAPPY WARRIOR being taken wider. He said when SALTO OLIMPICO improved its way forward of MISTER MONTE to race outside SPARKLING SWORD and when MISTER MONTE continued to race one horse off the rail, this resulted in HAPPY WARRIOR continuing to race three wide and without cover. He said HAPPY WARRIOR came under heavy pressure rounding the Home Turn and then in the Straight gave ground. He added he attributed the manner in which HAPPY WARRIOR failed to finish off the race to the circumstances of tonight’s race which were as a consequence of HAPPY WARRIOR losing ground at the start and being back in the field in the early stages. A veterinary inspection of HAPPY WARRIOR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. From the outside barriers, GENTRY and FAITHFUL TRINITY were shifted across behind runners in the early stages. Near the 1350 Metres, GOOD FOR YOU was momentarily steadied away from the heels of ACCLAIMED LIGHT which shifted in. Passing the 1300 Metres, GENTRY raced tight between REMARKABLE and HAPPY WARRIOR. When the pace slackened after the 1200 Metres, GOOD FOR YOU commenced to travel keenly and got its head up when awkwardly placed behind ACCLAIMED LIGHT. GENTRY, which was following, raced close to the heels of GOOD FOR YOU in consequence. After the 1000 Metres, SALTO OLIMPICO commenced to prove very difficult to settle and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MISTER MONTE. SALTO OLIMPICO then shifted out away from the heels of MISTER MONTE when continuing to travel keenly, resulting in HAPPY WARRIOR being taken wider. SALTO OLIMPICO was then allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead. Approaching the 400 Metres, DREAM WARRIORS was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of ACCLAIMED LIGHT. Passing the 200 Metres, GENTRY raced tight inside the heels of GOOD FOR YOU. Close to the finishing line, REMARKABLE was crowded for room inside SALTO OLIMPICO which shifted in away from ACCLAIMED LIGHT which shifted in under pressure before being straightened. A veterinary inspection of SPARKLING SWORD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. HAPPY WARRIOR, ACCLAIMED LIGHT and SALTO OLIMPICO were sent for sampling. <23/5/2019 Additional Veterinary Report>SPARKLING SWORD, which performed poorly, was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said at that time there were no significant findings. SPARKLING SWORD was again examined by the Veterinary Officer at the stables of Trainer K W Lui this morning. He said at this time he noted the horse to be lame in its left hind leg. Before being allowed to race again, SPARKLING SWORD will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
