Steward Report Predict Pace Map
WICKER began only fairly. CHAPARRAL STAR began very awkwardly, shifted out towards the heels of AEROFLASH and consequently lost ground. ROMANTIC JOURNEY and VICTORIOUS SEEKER bumped at the start. SKY GEM shifted in at the start and bumped REEVE’S MUNTJAC. Then from wide barriers, SKY GEM and REEVE’S MUNTJAC were shifted across behind runners in the early stages. Also from the outside barrier, AEROFLASH was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover. Near the 2100 Metres, WICKER shifted out and made contact with ROMANTIC JOURNEY. Then passing the 2100 Metres, ROMANTIC JOURNEY got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover behind WICKER after racing tight between that horse and YOUNG GLORY. In the early stages, CHAPARRAL STAR was left racing wide and without cover and approaching the winning post on the first occasion was allowed to improve to race outside the lead after the 1300 Metres. Passing the 1600 Metres, WICKER, which was travelling keenly, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ART OF RAW and near the 1500 Metres shifted out away from behind that horse and bumped GREAT SMART. WICKER then continued to travel keenly and approaching the winning post on the first occasion again became awkward near the heels of ART OF RAW, shifted out and made contact with GREAT SMART, resulting in that horse being taken into a three wide position and after the 1300 Metres being left racing wide and without cover until near the 600 Metres. Passing the winning post on the first occasion, DIVINE POWER became unbalanced of its own accord. VICTORIOUS SEEKER, which was following DIVINE POWER, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence. Near the 950 Metres, ROMANTIC JOURNEY got its head up when awkwardly placed inside the hindquarters of WICKER. Passing the 600 Metres, CHAPARRAL STAR shifted out and raced tight inside GARLIC YEAH. When CHAPARRAL STAR shifted out, VICTORIOUS SEEKER improved into tight running between CHAPARRAL STAR and DIVINE POWER which came under pressure. Then passing the 500 Metres, CHAPARRAL STAR bumped the hindquarters of GARLIC YEAH when racing tight between that horse and VICTORIOUS SEEKER. As a result of the contact, GARLIC YEAH became unbalanced and shifted in marginally, causing CHAPARRAL STAR to be crowded for room. WICKER, which was following, was shifted out away from the heels of CHAPARRAL STAR in consequence. As the Stewards were satisfied that there was no rider error attached to this incident, no further action was taken. Near the 550 Metres, GREAT SMART and YOUNG GLORY bumped. Near the 450 Metres, WICKER and GREAT SMART raced tight as WICKER attempted to shift to the outside of VICTORIOUS SEEKER. Near the 250 Metres, VICTORIOUS SEEKER became unbalanced when racing tight outside ART OF RAW which improved into restricted running between VICTORIOUS SEEKER and DIVINE POWER which was giving ground. J Moreira (ROMANTIC JOURNEY) was spoken to regarding his use of the whip on a horse out of contention. He was also warned against the practice of using his whip forward of the shoulder. After the race, Z Purton was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of GARLIC YEAH other than to observe that the horse was up considerably in weight for tonight’s race and this was the first occasion for some time that the horse was required to carry a big weight. A veterinary inspection of GARLIC YEAH immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. A veterinary inspection of ROMANTIC JOURNEY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious. GARLIC YEAH, SKY GEM and ART OF RAW were sent for sampling.
