The Sportsman Midweek - - Detailed Formguide For Canterbury -

RACE 1: Life­saver – Stew­ards con­sid­ered an ob­jec­tion lodged by T Ang­land, rider of 2nd placeget­ter Life­saver against An­other Sin be­ing de­clared the win­ner, al­leg­ing in­ter­fer­ence over the fi­nal 200m. After con­sid­er­ing all the ev­i­dence, Stew­ards found that in­side the 300m Life­saver shifted in and ini­ti­ated con­tact with An­other Sin, re­sult­ing in Sin be­com­ing mo­men­tar­ily un­bal­anced. The Stew­ards also found that near the 75m An­other Sin then shifted out and made con­tact with Life­saver, tak­ing that run­ner slightly wider, be­fore be­ing straight­ened by its rider C Brown near the 50m. Hav­ing re­gard to in­ci­dent that oc­curred in­side 300m and the man­ner in which both horses fin­ished the race off, Stew­ards could not be com­fort­ably sat­is­fied that had the in­ter­fer­ence near the 50m not oc­curred Life­saver would have fin­ished in ad­vance of An­other Sin and ac­cord­ingly the ob­jec­tion was dis­missed. Car­tel – slow to be­gin. When ques­tioned re­gard­ing the dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance, rider J Ford stated in a mod­er­ately run tempo his mount never trav­elled at any stage of the event and he was obliged to make use of his mount to hold its po­si­tion at the tail of the field. He said, whilst ac­knowl­edg­ing Car­tel suf­fered in­ter­fer­ence near the 800m when ham­pered by Marco Man, his mount was still most dis­ap­point­ing. He added the only ex­pla­na­tion he could of­fer for to­day’s per­for­mance was Car­tel did not ap­pre­ci­ate the ad­di­tion of blink­ers, crossed nose band and tongue tie, as it ap­peared not to stretch out through­out the event. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr D Wil­liams was un­able to pro­vide tan­gi­ble ex­pla­na­tion for the colt’s poor per­for­mance. He said Car­tel had pleased him in a track gal­lop on Wed­nes­day with the gear it raced in to­day and had won that gal­lop against an­other fan­cied sta­ble run­ner quite con­vinc­ingly. He said, after con­sul­ta­tion with the owner, bear­ing in mind the man­ner in which the colt failed to­day, con­sid­er­a­tion will be given to re­move blink­ers. Prince Jacko – raced keenly in the early stages and for some dis­tance leav­ing the 900m was stead­ied away from heels of Life­saver. Marco Man – near the 800m had to be checked when crowded be­tween And There Is More and Bu­lala (J Parr) which, after be­com­ing awk­ward on the heels of Super Sonic, shifted out. Whilst the Stew­ards ac­cepted J Parr had made some ef­fort to re­lieve the pres­sure to Marco Man, he was nev­er­the­less told to ex­er­cise more care and make more ef­fort where pos­si­ble be­fore caus­ing in­ter­fer­ence. Bu­lala – after be­ing briefly held up in the early part of the straight was stead­ied and shifted to

out­side Never So Sir­ius to ob­tain clear run­ning. And There Is More – near the 300m was ham­pered and taken wider. Sur­prise Party rider T Clark stated his mount was caught wide through­out the event. He also in­di­cated to Stew­ards that he felt the mare would be bet­ter suited with some give in the ground. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Super Tonic – a post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Za I’m Youth­ful – a post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the geld­ing bled for the first time. Trainer Mr M O’Neill was ad­vised Za I’m Youth­ful would now in­cur the manda­tory three month ban from racing un­der AR53A. Never So Sir­ius – when ques­tioned re­gard­ing the mare set­tling fur­ther back in field to­day, rider B Av­dulla stated his in­struc­tions were to ride his mount where com­fort­able, but he had not an­tic­i­pated tak­ing up a for­ward po­si­tion. He said, with the mare com­ing back in dis­tance to­day, when Sur­prise Party, which was po­si­tioned to his in­side, able to go for­ward, he elected not make use of his mount and take up a trail­ing po­si­tion be­hind that run­ner and con­se­quently raced fur­ther back than an­tic­i­pated.

RACE 2: Man­hat­tan Son – slow to be­gin. Oak­field Monarch slow to be­gin. Not A Gypsy – bumped shortly after the start when Mul­ti­facets shifted in. King Viv – briefly held up on home turn. Zourkhan – mak­ing the turn com­menced to im­prove to the out­side of Vau­cluse Bay. Vau­cluse Bay was then in­clined lay out mak­ing the home turn, re­sult­ing in Zourkhan be­ing taken wider out onto Mag­i­cal Stance. In this in­ci­dent both Zourkhan and Mag­i­cal Stance be­came un­bal­anced when they made con­tact. Rider B Av­dulla stated that in his view Zourkhan may ap­pre­ci­ate some give in the track as the geld­ing was re­luc­tant to stretch out when placed un­der pres­sure. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Mag­i­cal Stance – in­clined to lay in un­der pres­sure. Vau­cluse Bay – rider C Brown stated, whilst his mount trav­elled com­fort­ably out­side the leader Mul­ti­facets, when Mul­ti­facets in­creased the tempo near the 1000m his mount from that point was un­der pres­sure to hold its po­si­tion, did not re­spond his rid­ing and par­tic­u­larly on the home turn com­menced to weaken badly. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the geld­ing to be dis­play­ing car­diac ar­rhyth­mia. Trainer Mr C Waller stated Vau­cluse Bay had pleased the sta­ble since its last start win at Rose­hill on 29 July 2017 and it had not dis­played signs of any con­di­tion that would af­fect its per­for­mance to­day. Mr Waller was ad­vised a ve­teri­nary clear­ance, in­clud­ing the re­sults of an ECG, would be re­quired prior to the geld­ing tri­alling to the sat­is­fac­tion of the Stew­ards. Mul­ti­facets – when ques­tioned re­gard­ing geld­ing be­ing more for­ward to­day, rider T Berry stated, whilst he was in­structed to en­sure that his mount be­gan well from the bar­ri­ers, as it has a ten­dency to miss the start and he had been told to take up

po­si­tion in be­hind lead­ers. He said that Mul­ti­facets com­menced well and with the mod­er­ate tempo his mount was left in front de­spite the in­ten­tion for it to be rid­den qui­eter than it was. Trainer Mr C Waller con­firmed the in­struc­tions.

RACE 3: Gold Am­bi­tion – trainer Mr B Baker stated that he was con­cerned that the geld­ing, if rid­den qui­etly, he may be obliged to race wide with­out cover as it was at its last start. He said, in an en­deav­our to off­set the awk­ward bar­rier with its light weight, he had in­structed rider App. D Panya to be more pos­i­tive. Near the 1000m was in­con­ve­nienced when Cen­tre Pivot (B Shinn) crossed to the lead when not clear. B Shinn was ad­vised to en­sure he is suf­fi­ciently clear when shift­ing ground. Rider App. D Panya stated she was able to take up a more for­ward po­si­tion to­day, as no­ti­fied to the Stew­ards prior to the race. She said her mount trav­elled com­fort­ably in the run, but could of­fer no ex­cuse for its fail­ure to finish the race off. A pos­trace ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr B Baker ad­vised that he will con­sult the con­nec­tions of the geld­ing re­gard­ing its im­me­di­ate racing fu­ture and re­port back to the Stew­ards. Cen­tre Pivot – in early stages raced wide with­out cover un­til near the 1000m when the geld­ing crossed to take up a po­si­tion out­side the leader Ar­beit­sam. Loy­alty Man – when ques­tioned re­gard­ing the dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance, rider B Av­dulla stated, whilst his mount missed the start due to be­ing frac­tious, he was able take up a handy po­si­tion with­out hav­ing to make use of the geld­ing. He said mak­ing

home turn he elected to shift to the out­side of Clas­sic Uni­form and Cen­tre Pivot com­mence his run, but after ini­tially re­spond­ing at that point his mount was in­clined to shift ground in the straight and was dis­ap­point­ing in its fail­ure to re­spond to his rid­ing. A pos­trace ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the geld­ing had abraded its off-hind bumper. Trainer Mr M Moroney ad­vised the Stew­ards that in his view Loy­alty Man may not have ap­pre­ci­ated the three weeks be­tween runs. He added the geld­ing had pleased sta­ble since its last start and un­der­took to re­port back on the con­di­tion of Loy­alty Man sub­se­quent to the race.

RACE 4: Den­purr – slow to be­gin and then shortly after was crowded for room be­tween Zest­ful No Doubt, which shifted in. Near the 200m was dis­ap­pointed for clear run­ning be­tween Den­magic and Bada­joz. Den­purr was then shifted to the out­side of Bada­joz near

100m, but again was dis­ap­pointed when shifted out slightly and as a con­se­quence could not be tested over the con­clud­ing stages. Pet­rossian – raced keenly in the run and near the 700m was re­strained from heels of Sir Plush. Zest­ful – ap­proach­ing the 300m was stead­ied when dis­ap­pointed for clear run­ning to in­side of Selita that run­ner shifted in. Zest­ful then shifted to the out­side of Selita to ob­tain clear run­ning and over the fi­nal 200m could not be tested when awk­wardly placed close to the heels of Selita when that run­ner shifted out. Sir Plush – when ques­tioned, rider T Clark stated he in­tended to be on the speed and prefer­ably with some cover be­hind the lead­ers. He said at the start he rode his mount for­ward in an at­tempt to cross Bada­joz, how­ever did not show the nec­es­sary speed to do so and as a con­se­quence he was obliged to race three wide with­out cover the out­side of that run­ner. T Clark added Sir Plush never re­ally trav­elled well at any stage of the event and, al­though he was caught side, in his opin­ion it still dis­ap­point­ing. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr B Baker stated he was sur­prised with the lack of speed the geld­ing dis­played to­day. He said that, al­though Sir Plush trav­elled side with­out cover, he felt the per­for­mance was be­low ex­pec­ta­tions. Mr Baker ad­vised that he will con­sult the con­nec­tions of the geld­ing re­gard­ing its im­me­di­ate racing fu­ture and re­port back to the Stew­ards.

RACE 5: Hog­manay – slow to be­gin. Zara Bay to

Mak­ing the home turn was taken wider when bumped by Hog­manay, which shifted out to im­prove. No In­ter­est - from its wide bar­rier stead­ied and shifted in be­hind run­ners shortly after the start. Wild ‘N’ Fa­mous – rider T Berry stated from his wide bar­rier he was able to take up a po­si­tion out­side the early leader The Pharoah. He said, whilst his mount trav­elled rea­son­ably well, when placed un­der pres­sure in the straight it was in­clined to lay out and gave ground. A pos­trace ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Co-trainer Mr Peter Snow­den stated in his view the prin­ci­pal rea­son for the ppt was that, after be­ing a lit­tle slow to be­gin, T Berry was obliged make use of his mount to go for­ward and con­se­quently was left with­out a fin­ish­ing ef­fort. Mr Snow­den ad­vised the Stew­ards that Wild ‘N’ Fa­mous per­forms best when able to race down in the weights and ac­cord­ingly may not have han­dled to­day’s 60 ki­los. He un­der­took to re­port back to the Stew­ards on the post-race con­di­tion of geld­ing.

RACE 6: Trekking – made con­tact with Siege Of Que­bec at the start. In the early part of straight had dif­fi­culty ob­tain­ing clear run­ning as it en­deav­oured to im­prove into a run be­tween Siege Of Que­bec and Over­share. – made con­tact with Trekking at the start. Perast – be­gan awk­wardly, shifted in and made con­tact with Over­share. Raced wide with­out cover through­out. Di­a­mond Tatha­gata – after be­ing slow to be­gin, was bumped by Over­share. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Lightz – raced keenly in the early stages and for some dis­tance near the 700m was re­strained from heels of Over­share (T Berry), which shifted in when not quite clear. T Berry was ad­vised to ex­er­cise more care. Near the 300m stead­ied when crowded be­tween Trekking and Perast (App. A Ad­kins), which shifted in. App. Ad­kins was rep­ri­manded and ad­vised he must stop rid­ing straighten his mounts when they com­mence to shift ground. I Am Ex­cited – ques­tioned, rider C Brown stated his mount jumped awk­wardly and ap­peared to lose its foot­ing be­hind and be­came badly un­bal­anced. After be­ing crowded soon after the start when Lightz (K O’Hara) shifted in not clear, his mount lost ad­di­tional ground and as a con­se­quence set­tled to­wards the rear of the field. He added in early part of the straight he was held up for clear run­ning and un­able to fully test his mount un­til near the 50m, where he shifted out­side of Over­share to se­cure clear run­ning. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the filly had a speedy cut to nearhind fet­lock and was dis­play­ing poor post-race recovery. Trainer Mr D Pfi­ef­fer ad­vised that a ve­teri­nary clear­ance would be re­quired prior to I Am Ex­cited racing again. At a sub­se­quent in­quiry K O’Hara was rep­ri­manded.

RACE 7: Sar­rasin – got its head up on jump­ing. Stead­ied and shifted in be­hind run­ners shortly after the start. O’Reilly’s Re­venge – slow to be­gin. Raced wide with­out cover through­out. Wash­ing­ton Heights – slow to be­gin. Badly held up for clear run­ning in the straight and could not be tested at any stage. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did re­veal ab­nor­mal­i­ties. The Stew­ards opened an in­quiry in to T Clark’s rid­ing of Wash­ing­ton Heights, in par­tic­u­lar the tactics adopted mak­ing the home turn and the early part of straight. After tak­ing ev­i­dence from T Clark and trainer Mr G Ryan, the in­quiry was ad­journed to a date to be fixed so that Stew­ards can ob­tain in­for­ma­tion re­quested from Mr Ryan in re­spect to his ad­vice he gave to the con­nec­tions of the geld­ing and for the Stew­ards also

re­view other as­pects of the race. Ox­ford Poet – a post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Tom Mel­bourne – when un­able to ob­tain clear run­ning in the straight, in par­tic­u­lar near

150m, had to be se­verely checked to avoid the heels of That’s A Good Idea and in do­ing so shifted in, made con­tact with the hindquar­ter of Ox­ford Poet, re­sult­ing in both horses be­came un­bal­anced. As a con­se­quence went to the finish with­out be­ing tested un­til near the 50m. Kings­guard – when ques­tioned re­gard­ing the geld­ing set­tling fur­ther back to­day, rider J Ford stated he an­tic­i­pated tak­ing up a for­ward po­si­tion be­hind the lead­ers if the tempo was mod­er­ate in front. He said when Tom Mel­bourne and Ox­ford Poet showed su­pe­rior speed he al­lowed those run­ners to cross rather than mak­ing use of his mount to hold a for­ward po­si­tion and as con­se­quence he raced a lit­tle fur­ther back than had in­tended. Co-trainer Mr M Hawkes con­firmed the in­struc­tions is­sued to J Ford. He said the geld­ing at its most re­cent start was dis­ap­point­ing after be­ing pres­sured in the early stages to ob­tain a po­si­tion out­side the leader. Mr Hawkes said, hav­ing re­gard to those cir­cum­stances, it was his in­ten­tion to have Kings­guard rid­den be­hind the speed.

RACE 8: Faith’s En­core – slow to be­gin. Man­da­long Kiss – slow to be­gin. Had dif­fi­culty ob­tain­ing clear run­ning in the early part of the straight and near the 100m had to be stead­ied and shifted to the out­side of Elouera to con­tinue into clear run­ning. Mariq­uita – slow to be­gin and then de­spite be­ing rid­den along did not muster speed. Raced keenly in the mid­dle stages and re­fused to set­tle. Lit­tle Miss Brown – after be­ing slow to be­gin, from its wide bar­rier was stead­ied and shifted in be­hind run­ners shortly after the start. After the race J Ford, rider of the mare, which fin­ished dis­tance, ex­pressed some con­cerns in re­spect to its ac­tion. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the mare to be dis­play­ing car­diac ar­rhyth­mia. Trainer Mr J Pride was ad­vised a ve­teri­nary clear­ance, in­clud­ing the re­sults of an ECG, would be re­quired prior to the mare tri­alling to the sat­is­fac­tion of the Stew­ards. Sus­penders – raced wide with­out cover through­out. Hetty Heights – over the fi­nal 50m laid in when un­der pres­sure. Slum­ber Party rider B Av­dulla ad­vised his mount trav­elled well out­side the leader and when mak­ing

home turn un­der pres­sure was in­clined to shift ground and from that point weak­ened in the straight. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Co-trainer Mr A Bott ad­vised he was dis­ap­pointed with the man­ner in which Slum­ber Party weak­ened. He said they will as­sess the mare’s con­di­tion over the next few days and then de­ter­mine whether they will con­tinue with its prepa­ra­tion.

RACE 9: Sonic Swish – slow to be­gin. Imanui – slow to be­gin. In the early part of the straight had some dif­fi­culty ob­tain­ing clear run­ning when awk­wardly placed close to the heels of Gold Hori­zon. My Gi­u­liano – slow to be­gin. Tahsin – rider C Reith stated, whilst his in­struc­tions were to ride mount a lit­tle qui­eter to­day, after be­ing slow to be­gin, he was obliged to steady his mount be­tween Map­maker and Ex­i­tozo. He said con­se­quently he set­tled at the rear of the field, but then his mount pulled hard through­out the event and re­fused to set­tle and as a con­se­quence he did not finish the race off. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Map­maker – laid in over the con­clud­ing stages, re­sult­ing in its rider hav­ing to stop rid­ing the straight near the 25m. Vir­gilio – a post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed geld­ing lost its near-hind plate in run­ning.
