Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Genuine Leader rated nicely outside the leader Victory General, worked to the lead three deep at the 250m and drew clear to chalk up a third straight win over this course and distance, despite a rise in grade. He has the potential to head a lot higher. Turf Magic settled second from the rear along the inside, shifted into the clear six deep at the 200m and finished up willingly to edge Cape Canaveral for second. Cape Canaveral dropped back to a position third from the rear and along the inside, switched off the fence off a tiring Victory General at the 150m and came up just short of grabbing second while holding S amadhi for third. Samadhi eventually slotted in from an awkward gate with cover in fourth, rallied four-to-five deep and stayed on well to finish just outside the placings. Gamekeepers enjoyed the run of the race on the back of the speed from a good gate, stayed to the paint upon straightening and came up flat over the last 100m with every conceivable chance. Victory General cleared to the front from gate 12, set a steady pace while cornering a half-length on to and was running on empty just inside the 100m with a step up in grade.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (201) - THE JAPAN RACING ASSOCIATION TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1200 Meters RACING REWARD began awkwardly, shifted out and in doing so was steadied away from the heels of CAPE CANAVERAL.

BRILLIANT PROPOSAL was crowded for room at the start between SAMADHI and GREEN ZONE which shifted in.

GOOD FELLOW was crowded for room at the start between GAMEKEEPERS which shifted out and GENUINE LEADER which shifted in after being bumped heavily on the hindquarters by GOOD FELLOW.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, BRILLIANT PROPOSAL was steadied away from the heels of GREEN ZONE.

Near the 500 Metres, GREEN ZONE shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of GAMEKEEPERS and in doing so bumped GOOD FELLOW which became unbalanced.

Near the 150 Metres, GREEN ZONE got its head on the side and shifted out across the heels of SAMADHI.

Passing the 100 Metres, CAPE CANAVERAL shifted away from the heels of VICTORY GENERAL which shifted out, resulting in SAMADHI being taken out onto BRILLIANT PROPOSAL which was steadied away from the heels of SAMADHI.

Near the 50 Metres, SAMADHI raced tight between CAPE CANAVERAL which continued to shift out and TURF MAGIC.

Throughout the race, BRILLIANT PROPOSAL travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding his riding of CAPE CANAVERAL between the 1100 Metres until the 900 Metres, M Chadwick stated that he had been instructed to position CAPE CANAVERAL behind the speed if possible.

He said however that he was told that he should not ride his mount aggressively to do so but rather CAPE CANAVERAL should have sufficient speed to follow the pace.

He said after beginning well he noted in the early stages that GENUINE LEADER and GAMEKEEPERS were being ridden along to obtain forward positions and for this reason he elected approaching the 1100 Metres to shift CAPE CANAVERAL in behind those horses and obtain a trailing position.

He said after shifting initially behind GENUINE LEADER before proceeding to the fence, he niggled CAPE CANAVERAL along to obtain the position behind those two horses.

He said however that CAPE CANAVERAL did not show sufficient speed to maintain the position behind GAMEKEEPERS on the rail and he was reluctant to ride his mount aggressively at this time to obtain that position.

He said this resulted in a margin developing between GAMEKEEPERS and CAPE CANAVERAL.

He said after the 1000 Metres GREEN ZONE was shifted in to a position one horse off the fence and he did not believe that the rider of that horse would continue to shift over to the fence and he felt that this would allow CAPE CANAVERAL the opportunity to slowly improve its position to be closer to GAMEKEEPERS.

He said however that near the 900 Metres GREEN ZONE was shifted in to a position on the fence in front of his mount and directly behind GAMEKEEPERS.

He said for a short distance after this CAPE CANAVERAL was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GREEN ZONE and as a result raced further back in the field than had been intended.

M Chadwick was severely reprimanded over his riding of CAPE CANAVERAL between the 1100 Metres until after the 900 Metres and advised by the Stewards that, in their opinion, his riding of the horse lacked judgement.

He was advised that, in the opinion of the Stewards, he should have made more of an effort to maintain his position behind GAMEKEEPERS and not allowing GREEN ZONE to obtain the position in front of CAPE CANAVERAL.

He was further advised that his riding of the horse during the relevant part of tonight's race had come under notice and that in future he must ride his mounts in such a manner that is not open to query.

A veterinary inspection of RACING REWARD after the race did not show any significant findings.

GENUINE LEADER and TURF MAGIC were sent for sampling.
