The Sportsman Midweek - - Detailed Formguide For Canterbury -

RACE 1: Mu­sic Magic – be­came frac­tious in the bar­rier prior to the start be­ing ef­fected. The mare un­der­went a vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion and was passed fit to start. Levee Bank – slow be­gin (3L). Nic’s Vendetta – be­gan awk­wardly. Briefly held up mak­ing the home turn. For some dis­tance ap­proach­ing the 300m was held up on heels of Red Knot be­fore shift­ing to that run­ner’s out­side near the 250m to clear run­ning. Un­daoaf – ap­proach­ing the 900m was stead­ied to avoid the heels of Red Knot. Nic’s Vendetta, which was fol­low­ing, be­came awk­wardly placed, caus­ing My Mag­gie to be briefly tight­ened. Life­saver – had some dif­fi­culty ob­tain­ing clear run­ning in the early part of the straight. When ques­tioned, rider T Ang­land stated his in­struc­tions were to be pos­i­tive on the geld­ing, with no spe­cific in­struc­tions to lead. He said his mount com­menced rea­son­ably well, but it was obliged to make use of his mount to hold a for­ward po­si­tion. He added ap­proach­ing the first turn, when Moss­man Gorge, from its wide draw, shifted to­wards the rail, he elected not to con­test lead when he felt that his mount was rac­ing com­fort­ably within itself and he would be re­quired to make use of it to hold that po­si­tion. T Ang­land said, after be­ing crossed by Moss­man Gorge, Life­saver was briefly held up for clear run­ning in the early part of the straight be­fore ob­tain­ing be­tween Red Knot and Moss­man Gorge near the 300m. He said that in his opin­ion Life­saver had suf­fi­cient op­por­tu­nity to run down the leader, but he felt it raced a lit­tle flat to­day, which he at­trib­uted to the geld­ing hav­ing a tough first up run at Rose­hill on 12 Au­gust 2017. Men­neke Belle – raced wide without cover through­out the event. Rider R Murray re­ported her mount hung out badly through­out.

RACE 2: My­dream – the mare was a late with­drawal on vet­eri­nary ad­vice at 11.05am after it was found to have sus­tained a lac­er­a­tion to its near-hind leg en route

the course. Awoke – made con­tact with the off-side gate on jump­ing and as a con­se­quence was slow to be­gin. Raced wide without cover be­fore cross­ing and tak­ing up a po­si­tion out­side the leader Chatuchak near 700m. Eva Jean – 200m was dis­ap­pointed for run­ning to the in­side of Prada Miss and as a con­se­quence was shifted to the out­side of that run­ner ob­tain clear run­ning. Elouera – a post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

RACE 3: Sky­light Glow – be­gan awk­wardly. From its wide bar­rier stead­ied and shifted in be­hind run­ners shortly after the start. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Tango Rain – be­gan awk­wardly. Beau Ti­rage – bumped on jump­ing by Pump­kin Pie and Fly For­ward, both of which shifted ground. Near the 800m raced in re­stricted room to the in­side of Isorich and be­came un­bal­anced. Cos­mopol – shortly after the start was in­con­ve­nienced when tight­ened be­tween Isorich and Fly For­ward, which shifted away from Beau Ti­rage. Over­raced in the mid­dle stages. Salerno – raced wide without cover early and Im­prove­ment – App. D Panya stated her in­struc­tions were to ei­ther lead or sit close to the lead. She added that Im­prove­ment be­gan only fairly and, after rid­ing her mount along for a short dis­tance, when Im­prove­ment did not show the nec­es­sary speed to take up a for­ward po­si­tion, she elected to shift in be­hind run­ners so as not cover ad­di­tional ground. She said as a con­se­quence Im­prove­ment set­tled to­wards the rear of the field and, after be­ing shifted to the out­side or run­ners in straight, ran to the line only fairly. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr G Portelli con­firmed the in­struc­tions were to take up a for­ward po­si­tion and ex­pressed some surprise that Im­prove­ment failed to show the nec­es­sary early speed to do so. He said in his opin­ion Im­prove­ment was un­suited by rac­ing back the field and did not ap­pre­ci­ate kick­back dur­ing the run. Mr Portelli un­der­took to re­port back to the Stew­ards on the post-race con­di­tion of Im­prove­ment and in­di­cated at its next start his in­ten­tion will be to go for­ward and he

in­struct the rider to give the mare a good warm up prior to be­ing placed in the bar­rier. Isorich – App. L Magor­rian was fined the sum of $400 un­der AR137A(5)(a)(ii) for us­ing the whip prior to the 100m on nine oc­ca­sions (four more than per­mit­ted).

RACE 4: Chate­lard – be­gan awk­wardly. Vau­cluse Bay – be­gan awk­wardly. When ques­tioned re­gard­ing his rid­ing, C Brown stated

mount, as no­ti­fied to the Stew­ards set­tled fur­ther back than is usual , and was able to take up a trail­ing po­si­tion be­hind Chate­lard. He said when Chate­lard shifted off to im­prove near the 900m he felt at this stage he was too far from the fin­ish to place his mount un­der pres­sure and for this rea­son he elected to re­main rac­ing in a mid­field po­si­tion. He added ap­proach­ing the 700m he then at­tempted to place his mount un­der pres­sure, but when Not A Gypsy shifted out in ad­vance of him he then be­came held up on the heels of that run­ner mak­ing home turn. C Brown fur­ther stated, as did not con­tinue to im­prove into the race, he be­came awk­wardly placed on its heels, but was un­able to shift off to ob­tain clear run­ning as Quick De­fence, which was po­si­tioned to his out­side, pre­vented him from do­ing so. He said Vau­cluse Bay was then held up for clear run­ning and could not be tested un­til ap­proach­ing the 200m. C Brown agreed in ret­ro­spect he should have at­tempted to stay hard against the win­ner Al­ward, but had not no­ticed the run avail­able to him dur­ing run­ning of the race. Quick De­fence – bumped on jump­ing by Dream Lane, which shifted in. Hunter Jack - over­raced in the early stages. Laid un­der pres­sure in the straight and proved dif­fi­cult to ride. Meet And Greet – over­raced in the early stages. Miss Dubois – near the 1800m Chate­lard (B Shinn) shifted out to take up a po­si­tion one off the rail when not fully clear of Al­ward. As a re­sult Al­ward was stead­ied and shifted in, re­sult­ing in Miss Dubois be­ing crowded for room and hav­ing to be stead­ied. B Shinn was ad­vised to ex­er­cise more care in sim­i­lar cir­cum­stances. Al­ward – held up for clear run­ning in the early part of the straight. Dream Lane – for a short dis­tance near the 200m was held up for clear run­ning be­tween Meet And Greet and Miss Dubois. Not A Gypsy – a post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

RACE 5: Des­tiny’s Kiss – on jump­ing was ham­pered by Dee I Cee, which was bumped and car­ried in by Hip­parchus, Clas­sic Uni­form, which be­gan awk­wardly and shifted out. Mak­ing the home turn com­menced to im­prove into a run be­tween Dee I Cee and Centre Pivot. Then shortly after was checked from the heels of Hip­parchus when that run­ner com­menced to give ground. Centre Pivot – shortly after the start was ham­pered and made con­tact with Hip­parchus when Loy­alty Man was taken in by Broad­side. Rider G Schofield was fined $500 un­der AR137A(5)(a)(ii) for us­ing the whip on nine oc­ca­sions prior to the 100m (four more than per­mit­ted). Dee I Cee – ap­proach­ing the first turn near the 1500m had to be stead­ied when crowded be­tween Hip­parchus and Centre Pivot ( G Schofield) which, after mak­ing slight con­tact with Loy­alty Man, shifted in away from that run­ner. Whilst the Stew­ards ac­cepted that Centre Pivot was ini­tially rac­ing tight to the in­side of Loy­alty Man, G Schofield was ad­vised he must make every ef­fort to pre­vent his mounts from shift­ing ground. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed a lac­er­a­tion to the near-hind cannon. King Viv – near the 1000m struck run­ning rail and be­came un­bal­anced. Broad­side – rider App. A Ad­kins stated with the fast early tempo he at­tempted to com­ply with in­struc­tions and lead on the geld­ing, how­ever he was obliged to make too much use of his mount to do so and ac­cord­ingly his was left without a fin­ish­ing ef­fort in the straight after rac­ing pre­dom­i­nantly. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

RACE 6: Thy King­dom Come – trainer Mr J Thomp­son was fined the sum of $200 un­der LR35(1) for fail­ing to de­clare G Schofield as the rider of the colt by the pre­scribed time. Stew­ards per­mit­ted G Schofield to ride Thy King­dom Come ½ a kilo­gram over­weight. When giv­ing ground in the straight was in­clined to lay in and be­came un­bal­anced on the heels of Run­away. Run­away – be­gan awk­wardly. Rider App. R King stated her mount trav­elled well out­side the leader Ad­dic­tive Na­ture, but when the tempo quick­ened in straight Run­away was onepaced and in her view may be bet­ter suited by step­ping up in dis­tance. A pos­trace vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. As­to­ria – bumped on jump­ing by Thy King­dom Come, which shifted in. Coles­berg – bumped on jump­ing by As­sim­i­late, which be­gan awk­wardly and shifted in. Ma­ha­lan­gur – jumped awk­wardly and be­came un­bal­anced. Rider B Av­dulla stated that his mount was in­clined to race greenly un­der pres­sure in the straight and in par­tic­u­lar, when As­sim­i­late im­proved to his out­side near the 200m, shifted in away from that run­ner and be­came un­bal­anced on the heels of As­to­ria. He said from this point on Ma­ha­lan­gur then did not stretch out fully and con­tin­ued to race greenly. Ad­dic­tive Na­ture – laid out un­der pres­sure in the straight.

RACE 7: Con­dor He­roes – bumped on jump­ing by Pariah, which be­gan awk­wardly and shifted in. Rider T Clark stated he had to make some use of his mount take up a po­si­tion out­side the leader. He said that Con­dor He­roes over­raced in lead and given the use he made of his mount to ob­tain a po­si­tion in early stages, it gave ground un­der pres­sure in the straight. T Clark added his view Con­dor He­roes would de­rive ben­e­fit from to­day’s run and would be bet­ter suited by be­ing able to step up in dis­tance where it may be able to race promi­nently when be­ing pres­sured. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr G Ryan con­curred with the thoughts of the rider and un­der­took to re­port back on post-race con­di­tion of the colt sub­se­quent to the event. Tak­ing Aim – bumped on jump­ing by Chauf­feur, which be­gan awk­wardly and shifted in. Laid out un­der pres­sure in the straight. Perast – shortly after the start was buf­feted be­tween Speed Street and Another Sin, which shifted out. Laid in in the early part of the straight and as a con­se­quence was awk­wardly placed on heels of Another Sin for some dis­tance. Madeenaty – raced keenly in the early stages. Over

fi­nal 200m laid in when be­ing rid­den out. Chauf­feur – near the 900m shifted in away from Pariah and be­came un­bal­anced. Jorda – near the 100m brushed with Chauf­feur. Rider G Schofield stated that on straight­en­ing he shifted to the out­side of Con­dor He­roes en­deav­our to im­prove, how­ever when Madeenaty shifted in he was dis­ap­pointed for that run. He said he was then held up on the heels of Madeenaty for some dis­tance near the 200m be­fore shift­ing to its out­side and then to out­side

of Pariah, whereby his mount se­cured clear run­ning near the 150m. Another Sin – a post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

RACE 8: The Pharoah – the horse, which had sus­tained a mi­nor su­per­fi­cial abra­sion to the bridge of its nose, was in­spected by the Club’s Vet­eri­nary Of­fi­cer and passed fit to start. Be­gan awk­wardly. Hog­manay – slow to be­gin. Know How leav­ing the 600m was placed in re­stricted room when Meiner Frec­cia was taken in by Rock My­lady (B Shinn), which was in­clined to lay across the heels of Meiner Frec­cia and as a con­se­quence had to be stead­ied. B Shinn was ad­vised to en­sure he leaves suf­fi­cient room for run­ners to his in­side. Rock My­lady – raced wide without cover through­out. Special Mis­sile

over the fi­nal 150m was in­clined to lay out when rid­den along. Re­gal Monarch – a post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed an abra­sion to the off-hind bumper.

RACE 9: Sir Bac­chus – slow to be­gin. Rider H Bow­man stated that his mount failed to travel com­fort­ably at any stage of the event and when placed un­der pres­sure near the 600m he had con­cerns with its ac­tion be­hind and for this rea­son in the straight he did not test Sir Bac­chus. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the geld­ing to be lame in the near-hind leg. Sta­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mr C Duck­worth ad­vised Sir Bac­chus had pleased the sta­ble lead­ing up to to­day’s race and he could of­fer no ex­pla­na­tion for the dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance. Mr Duck­worth in­di­cated the geld­ing will be spelled, ir­re­spec­tive a vet­eri­nary clear­ance will be re­quired prior to rac­ing again. Mo­gador – slow to be­gin. Bonny O’Reilly be­gan awk­wardly. Sir Plush – Laid out mak­ing the home turn. Be Like Dad – raced wide without cover for the ma­jor­ity of the event.
