Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late in betting, Golden Harvest was taken back to last and one off the rails from the widest gate, was twice hampered for a run after straightening with three wider out and still won going away 30m out when obtaining a clear run at the 170m in an impressive performance. He was up in grade but did enjoy the light weight with the speed on. Favourite Sichuan Charm was up with the leaders along the rails, advanced to the front at the 200m and found one too smart in the end. Imperial Rome eventually made his run second from the rear following a slow break, straightened four deep, copped a sharp bump when shifting out for a clear run at the 200m with the eventual winner and ran on nicely when balancing up to snatch third close to home from Cape Canaveral, who nearly drew level for the front at the 150m following a run one off the rails in midfield and was swamped late. Withinmyheart saved ground behind midfield, angled into the clear six deep at the 300m and peaked on his run 100m out after looming a chance at the 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (199)-THE JAPAN RACING ASSOCIATION TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 2 - 1200Metres

WITHINMYHEART and IMPERIAL ROME were slow to begin.

SUPER FRESH began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, TAI SING YEH and GOLDEN HARVEST were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1000 Metres, TAI SING YEH was checked when crowded for room between WITHINMYHEART and CAPE CANAVERAL (G Mosse) which, after initially being clear of TAI SING YEH, shifted in as that horse improved its position to be racing inside CAPE CANAVERAL.

G Mosse was reprimanded and advised that whilst there were some circumstances to this incident, nonetheless he must ensure that he exercises due care when shifting ground.

Throughout the race, PERFECT FINISH travelled wide and after the 600 Metres was left racing without cover.

At the entrance to the Straight, SUPER FRESH was shifted to the inside of IMPERIAL CHAMPION when disappointed for running between that horse and CAPE CANAVERAL.

Approaching and passing the 300 Metres, GOLDEN HARVEST was held up when disappointed for running between TAI SING YEH and WITHINMYHEART.

GOLDEN HARVEST was then shifted to the inside of WITHINMYHEART to obtain running to the inside of that horse.

At the same time, IMPERIAL ROME was shifted out to obtain clear running from behind IMPERIAL CHAMPION.

This resulted in GOLDEN HARVEST making heavy contact with the hindquarters of IMPERIAL ROME, causing that horse to become badly unbalanced and for GOLDEN HARVEST to be checked when disappointed for running between IMPERIAL ROME and WITHINMYHEART.

Then after the 200 Metres, GOLDEN HARVEST was shifted to the outside of WITHINMYHEART to obtain clear running.

After the 150 Metres, LEADING CITY was crowded for room inside CAPE CANAVERAL which shifted in under pressure.

G Mosse was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he straightens his mounts in similar circumstances.

After the race, M L Yeung (SICHUAN CHARM) reported that his saddle shifted back in the early stages, placing him at a slight disadvantage for the remainder of the race.

A veterinary inspection of TAI SING YEH and IMPERIAL CHAMPION immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GOLDEN HARVEST and SICHUAN CHARM were sent for sampling.
