The Sportsman Midweek - - Warwick Farm | A Detailed Formguide -

RACE 1: Ab­so­lute Con­trol – After be­ing frac­tious in the bar­ri­ers was slow to be­gin. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the colt to have sus­tained a cut above left eye and to be slow to re­cover. Bivouac – On the home turn be­came un­bal­anced when it ap­peared to shift out away from the run­ning rail. Se­dona – Slow to be­gin and from a wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. Time To Reign – In the straight laid out, re­strict­ing it’s rider to fully test the colt over the fi­nal 200m Var­sity – After be­ing slow to be­gin was ham­pered by Se­dona which shifted out.

Cal­i­for­nia Con­cord – A pos­trace ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Or­cein – Be­gan awk­wardly and shifted out mak­ing con­tact with the hindquar­ter of Quack­er­jack.

On the home turn Cal­i­for­nia Con­cord shifted out to im­prove and in do­ing so made con­tact with Lucky Hel­met which was then taken wider. Ulus­aba – Rider A Hyeron­imus ad­vised that the geld­ing was able to dic­tate the early and mid­dle stages at a mod­er­ate tempo but when un­der pres­sure in the straight was un­able to fin­ish the race off in a com­pet­i­tive man­ner. He stated his view two fac­tors for the per­for­mance were that Ulus­aba was step­ping up in grade and may not have run out 1600m in stronger com­pany. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

RACE 3: Missed Out – Knuck­led over badly on jump­ing and lost ground. For some dis­tance in the mid­dle stages raced tight between Doc­tor On Ice and Cheat’m which when over-rac­ing was in­clined to shift in away from The Lion. The Lion – As C O’Brian was stood down by the Club’s doc­tor due to de­hy­dra­tion Stew­ards per­mit­ted R King be sub­sti­tuted as rider of the geld­ing. Burn­ing Crown – have per­mit­ted G Ryan to ride the geld­ing 0.5kg over its al­lot­ted weight of 53.5kg. Slow to be­ing (2L).

Our Rose­ma­ree – From the out­side bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. Doc­tor On Ice – Rider A Ad­kins stated that the geld­ing which was rac­ing first up to­day was stirred up in the en­clo­sure and was feel­ing ef­fects of warmer weather. He added that Doc­tor On Ice raced keenly in the run and was then left with­out a fin­ish­ing ef­fort. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the geld­ing to be dis­play­ing a poor pos­trace re­cov­ery and had lost its near hind plate and was found to be 1/5 lame in that leg. Sta­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mrs K Dunn was ad­vised a ve­teri­nary clear­ance would be re­quired prior to Doc­tor On Ice rac­ing next. Han­dle The Truth – Raced wide and with­out cover through­out.

RACE 4: City Tat­ter­salls Club Cup 2400m (Listed) Des­tiny’s Kiss – Slow to be­gin. Big Blue – When ques­tioned re­gard­ing the faster than av­er­age tempo set between

2000m and 1600m rider A Hyeron­imus stated his in­struc­tions were to ride the geld­ing in a for­ward po­si­tion but not specif­i­cally to lead. He said that after com­menc­ing well he elected to cross So­cial El­e­ment in the early stages whereby he ob­tained a po­si­tion out­side the early leader Cos­mol­o­gist. He said that leav­ing the 2000m when Cos­mol­o­gist was stead­ied by its rider S Weather­ley, he elected to al­low Big Blue to stride for­ward and lead bear­ing in mind the geld­ing was back in dis­tance to­day and he felt it in its best in­ter­est to en­sure

race a true stay­ing test. He added that after work­ing to the lead near the 1600m he was able re­duce the tempo sig­nif­i­cantly in the mid­dle stages whereby Big Blue ob­tained an un­con­tested lead through­out that stage of the race. He fur­ther added from the 600m when the race de­vel­oped into a sprint Big Blue was one paced and in his opin­ion was look­ing for ad­di­tional ground. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. In­vic­tus Prince – Slow to be­gin. High Bridge – Slow to be­gin. Stew­ards opened an in in­quiry into the dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance of the geld­ing which was beaten 10L. Rider J Col­lett re­ported his in­struc­tions were to be slightly for­ward of mid­field if pos­si­ble. He said that after com­menc­ing well and when es­tab­lished in a mid­field po­si­tion his mount failed to travel through­out the early stages of the event and as re­sult he elected to al­low In­vic­tus Prince to take up a po­si­tion in ad­vance of his mount which re­sulted High Bridge rac­ing towards the rear of the field. He said that with quicker than av­er­age tempo in the early stages his mount con­tin­ued to not travel, and he was obliged on a num­ber of oc­ca­sion to make some use of the geld­ing to hold its po­si­tion at the rear field. He added that en­ter­ing back straight, al­though the tempo eased he was still obliged to en­cour­age his mount to main­tain the rear­ward po­si­tion so as would not lose touch with the lead­ing di­vi­sion, but from this point High Bridge raced dis­ap­point­ingly and failed to race in

a com­pet­i­tive man­ner. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the geld­ing to be slow to re­cover. Trainer rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mr C Duck­worth ad­vised that High Bridge had pleased the sta­ble since run­ning in The Met­ro­pol­i­tan on 29 Septem­ber 2018 and

worked well which in­cluded a gal­lop on Tues­day 16 Oc­to­ber when rid­den by J McDon­ald. He added that rider J McDon­ald had ad­vised the sta­ble the gal­lop had been en­cour­ag­ing, and he ex­pected the horse to be com­pet­i­tive to­day. He stated that whilst Ex­o­teric had pleased sta­ble com­ing into to­day’s race it was not ex­pected it would fin­ish in ad­vance of High Bridge. The con­cern­ing bet­ting fluc­tu­a­tions, which re­vealed High Bridge drift sig­nif­i­cantly in the mar­ket and the sta­ble­mate and Ex­o­teric (win­ner) firm, were brought to the at­ten­tion of Mr Duck­worth how­ever was un­able to pro­vide any as­sis­tance in this re­gard. He in­di­cated the sta­ble’s view that High Bridge was bet­ter cre­den­tialed of the two run­ners and that Ex­o­teric would find it dif­fi­cult to fin­ish in ad­vance of High Bridge given their re­cent form. Mr Duck­worth ad­vised that in all like­li­hood given to­day’s per­for­mance High Bridge would now be spelled but un­der­took to re­port back to the Stew­ards if those plans change at which time Stew­ards would con­sider if any em­bargo should be placed on the geld­ing. The Stew­ards ad­journed the in­quiry to en­able fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion in re­spect the bet­ting on the event. Ex­o­teric – Stew­ards have per­mit­ted T Berry to ride the geld­ing 0.5kg over its al­lot­ted weight of 53kg. Cos­mol­o­gist – Stew­ards have per­mit­ted App S Weather­ley to ride the geld­ing 0.5kg over its al­lot­ted weight of 53kg. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

Etymology – Slow to be­gin and was al­lowed to set­tle back in the field. Rider J Col­let stated his mount did not han­dle the Soft 7 track con­di­tions par­tic­u­larly where it was obliged to race to­ward the rail

the ground in his view was in­fe­rior. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties All Too Soon – From a wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. Ar­rain­ment Rider S Weather­ley ad­vised he had to make some use of geld­ing to cross the lead in the early stages and to­gether with geld­ing not be­ing suited to­days Soft 7 track con­di­tions he was not able to fin­ish off the race as ex­pected. Live And Free – Through­out the early and mid­dle stages raced keenly and did not set­tle. Near the 1200m Ab­don

Live And Free made con­tact when they con­tested for a po­si­tion be­hind As­to­ria. Ar­raign­ment – A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Smart As You Think When ques­tioned re­gard­ing the mare rac­ing in a more for­ward po­si­tion to­day rider J Innes Jnr ad­vised his in­struc­tions were to be slightly for­ward of mid­field with cover, he added after Smart As You Think com­menced well and when it was ap­par­ent As­to­ria which was po­si­tioned to his in­side was not go­ing to con­test a more for­ward po­si­tion he elected al­low the mare to stride for­ward and race out­side lead rather than cov­er­ing ad­di­tional ground. Merovee – Slow to be­gin.

RACE 6: Ef Troop – Jumped awk­wardly and shortly after the start was ham­pered when bumped by Mansa Musa which shifted out. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Leg­end Of Con­dor – Raced keenly in the mid­dle stages. Roo­sevelt – When ques­tioned re­gard­ing the per­for­mance rider R King stated that when ini­tially crossed by The Tenor near

1000m whilst her mount was rac­ing keenly it set­tled rea­son­ably well be­hind that run­ner. She added that when the tempo eased ap­proach­ing the 800m Roo­sevelt com­menced to race keenly, was stead­ied from the heels of The Tenor and was obliged then shift to a three wide po­si­tion where it raced with­out cover con­tin­ued to race keenly. She fur­ther added that when Fif­teen Rounds then im­proved to her in­side leav­ing the 700m she was un­able se­cure her orig­i­nal po­si­tion be­hind The Tenor which re­sulted in Roo­sevelt rac­ing wide and with­out cover through­out the mid­dle stages. She fur­ther re­ported that in her opin­ion Roo­sevelt would be bet­ter suited at this stage in his ca­reer by be­ing drooped back in dis­tance where it can set­tle on a more gen­uine tempo. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Sta­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mr D Bead­man con­curred with the views of R King and un­der­took to re­port back on the progress of the colt in days sub­se­quent.

After con­sid­er­ing the ev­i­dence Stew­ards found that both run­ners made con­tact at the 200m due to Mansa Musa shift­ing out which re­sulted in The Tenor be­com­ing un­bal­anced and los­ing ground. In all the cir­cum­stances when the Stew­ards were sat­is­fied The Tenor would have fin­ished in ad­vance of Mansa Musa had the in­ter­fer­ence not have oc­curred the ob­jec­tion was up­held, and the plac­ings amended to read: 1st Diplomatico 2ndLe­gend Of Con­dor 3rd The Tenor 4th Mansa Musa Diplomatico – Raced fiercely in the early and mid­dle stages and near the 700m was checked from the heels of Roo­sevelt, shifted out raced wide with­out cover from this point.
