AT THE FIN­ISH

The Sportsman Midweek - - Chartform -

RACE 7: Heartlings – hung out when placed un­der pres­sure over the fi­nal 200m and proved dif­fi­cult to ride out. Skylimit when ques­tioned, M Walker said that his mount set­tled out­side the leader and trav­elled well un­til ap­proach­ing the home turn. He said from this point on, Skylimit, when rac­ing be­tween Gretna and Bolero King, came un­der pres­sure, hung out round­ing the home turn and weak­ened quickly after the 100m. A post race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr A Den­ham un­der­took to re­port back in the days sub­se­quent as to the im­me­di­ate rac­ing fu­ture of Skylimit. He’s Given –- pass­ing the 200m un­til ap­proach­ing the 100m, was car­ried wider on the track by Heartlings. The­way­weare – was slow to be­gin. Kelvin­side – be­gan awk­wardly and lost ground. Tenorino – knuck­led on jump­ing. J Adams, rider of fourth placeget­ter Tenorino, pleaded guilty to a charge un­der AR137(b) of fail­ing to ride his mount out to the end of the race. J Adams’ li­cence to ride in races was sus­pended for a pe­riod to com­mence on Sunday, 27 Au­gust 2017 and to ex­pire on Satur­day, 2 Septem­ber 2017 on which day he may ride again. In ar­riv­ing at this de­ci­sion, the Stew­ards were mind­ful of his good record in this re­gard, his guilty plea and that an in­creased pe­riod of sus­pen­sion would have in­cor­po­rated a group meeting. Bolero King – raced keenly in the early and mid­dle stages. When ques­tioned re­gard­ing poor per­for­mance of Bolero King, App M Murphy stated that although his mount was obliged to travel wide and without cover for the ma­jor part of the race, it was nonethe­less dis­ap­point­ing in the manner in which it weak­ened early in straight. He said that he had rid­den Bolero King early in the week and its gal­lop on Mon­day morn­ing had been pleas­ing on the strength of this work, he ex­pected a for­ward showing of Bolero King. A post race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer C Con­ners ad­vised that fol­low­ing the race, Bolero King was cough­ing. He un­der­took to have the horse scoped and will fur­nish the re­sults of that ex­am­i­na­tion to the Stew­ards. Ir­re­spec­tive, Mr Con­ners will be ad­vised that a vet­eri­nary clear­ance will be re­quired be­fore Bolero King is per­mit­ted to race again. Shot­gun Roulette – raced keenly in the early and mid­dle stages. Je­madar when ques­tioned, B Av­dulla ex­plained that shortly after the start, his mount be­came un­bal­anced and dipped. As a re­sult, lost mo­men­tum and there­after he was obliged to travel wide and without cover for the ma­jor­ity of the event. Gretna – when ques­tioned, B Shinn stated that mare trav­elled well in the lead. He said that when Royal Navy im­proved to his out­side near the 200m, Gretna, de­spite his ef­forts, com­menced to give ground and weak­ened there­after. B Shinn ad­vised that the mare may be bet­ter suited drop­ping back in dis­tance where it can po­ten­tially rid­den with some cover. A post race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties.
