Steward Report Predict Pace Map
On jumping, SMILING CITY (Apprentice C L Chau) was checked away from the heels of SURREALISM which shifted out abruptly. Apprentice Chau stated that irrespective of being hampered by SURREALISM at the start, it was intended for SMILING CITY to be shifted across behind runners in the early stages from the outside barrier to obtain a position with cover. After this, SURREALISM was shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier. SUNNY STAR shifted out at the start and brushed ROYAL BOMB. After travelling a short distance, TELECOM FIGHTERS shifted out and bumped GALLANT CROWN. Passing the 1000 Metres, SMILING CITY got its head on the side when racing keenly and shifted out towards the heels of GALLANT CROWN. Approaching the 800 Metres, GALLANT CROWN was bumped by FEARLESS FIRE which shifted out before being directed back in away from GALLANT CROWN. Near the 750 Metres, SMILING CITY got its head up when awkwardly placed behind FEARLESS FIRE. Passing the 200 Metres, ROYAL BOMB, which was commencing to give ground, momentarily raced tight inside the heels of SMOOTHIES which got its head on the side and lay in. Over the concluding stages, GALLANT CROWN shifted in towards the heels of SMOOTHIES, requiring its rider to correct his mount. Because of this, GALLANT CROWN was not able to be properly tested close to the finishing line. After the race, J Moreira stated that after being able to obtain a position in the early stages albeit with cover, ROYAL BOMB came under pressure rounding the Home Turn and after failing to quicken in the early part of the Straight then gave ground noticeably over the latter stages of the race. J Moreira was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of ROYAL BOMB. A veterinary inspection of ROYAL BOMB immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. M Chadwick (ETERNAL BEAUTY) stated that he attempted to obtain cover in the early stages behind the leaders, however, due to SMOOTHIES maintaining its position inside ETERNAL BEAUTY passing the winning post on the first occasion, he was unable to obtain cover behind ROYAL BOMB. He said passing the 1300 Metres ETERNAL BEAUTY was left racing wide and without cover. He said although the pace of the race at this stage was not strong, he was not able to improve his position forward of ROYAL BOMB as ETERNAL BEAUTY was not travelling well enough. He said he believed that he would have had to ride ETERNAL BEAUTY aggressively in an attempt to improve forward of ROYAL BOMB, however, given the manner in which his horse was travelling and the fact that ROYAL BOMB was appearing to travel strongly, he believed that ETERNAL BEAUTY would not have sufficient speed to be able to improve around that horse. He said therefore he elected to remain racing to the outside of ROYAL BOMB which resulted in ETERNAL BEAUTY racing wide and without cover throughout the race before coming under heavy pressure after the 600 Metres and giving ground thereafter. A veterinary inspection of FEARLESS FIRE and ETERNAL BEAUTY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. SUNNY STAR and SMOOTHIES were sent for sampling.
