Recap by phillip woo

All You Wish came from last down the outside to grab victory in the final few metres for an upset win. Khaya travelled one off in second behind Enthusiasm, advanced to a narrow lead at the 350m, was headed by raging favourite Divine Calling 100m out and fought back in the shadows of the post to make it a rich Quinella result. Divine Calling pulled off heels four deep at the 350m in midfield, advanced to a narrow lead at the 100m and came up flat soon after. Kabayan settled third from the rear, swung the final bend one from the right and finished up reasonably well without menacing the placegetters. Specked late, Enthusiasm led from the widest gate, cornered a half-length on top and grudgingly gave way when headed. Ashkiyr straightened one off after travelling third from the rear and made a mild bid without menacing. Plunged in betting, Flame Hero kept up an even gallop after travelling without cover in midfield. Pleasure Gains eventually settled one off in fourth after pulling early on, swung the final bend with three wider out and was gone 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (201)-THE CHEVALIER CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 1 - 1600Metres

Shortly after the start, WINNING LEADER was awkwardly placed outside the heels of KHAYA.

Near the 1200 Metres, PLEASURE GAINS shifted out abruptly when over-racing and awkwardly placed behind KHAYA and in doing so took FLAME HERO wider.

Passing the 1200 Metres, KABAYAN was shifted out away from the heels of DIVINE CALLING.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, KABAYAN was checked away from the heels of DIVINE CALLING which was racing tight inside FLAME HERO as U Rispoli, the rider of FLAME HERO, attempted to shift that horse in to obtain cover.

In the early part of the Straight, KHAYA was inclined to lay in under pressure.

When questioned, U Rispoli stated that he had been instructed to ride FLAME HERO behind the leaders with cover if possible.

He said it was felt that PLEASURE GAINS and KHAYA would likely take up leading positions and that he may be able to shift over with those horses in the early stages.

He said unlike when he had ridden FLAME HERO last season, the horse did not show the early speed that was anticipated despite being urged along in the early stages.

He said to obtain the position as instructed, he believed he would have had to ride the horse vigorously and as it was, he slapped it down the shoulder with the whip passing the 1500 Metres in an endeavour to have it travel into a more forward position.

He said when it became apparent to him that he would not be able to obtain the position as instructed, he commenced to shift FLAME HERO across in an endeavour to obtain a midfield position with cover after the 1400 Metres.

He added after FLAME HERO was inconvenienced by PLEASURE GAINS near the 1200 Metres, he attempted to shift FLAME HERO in to race closer to the rail so that it could obtain cover behind PLEASURE GAINS.

He said despite being ridden along at this time, FLAME HERO was not travelling well enough to obtain this position and consequently was obliged to race three wide and without cover for the remainder of the race.

When questioned regarding the performance of DIVINE CALLING, J Moreira stated that he was not under any specific instructions on how to ride the horse as it is well known to him.

He said it was always his intention to remain racing away from the rail so that DIVING CALLING was able to obtain uninterrupted running in the Straight if at all possible.

He said in the early stages PLEASURE GAINS was shifting in and as DIVING CALLING was racing to its inside, he elected to steady his mount to avoid being taken to the rail and consequently he was able to obtain a good trailing position behind PLEASURE GAINS.

He said although DIVINE CALLING raced tight inside FLAME HERO near the 1100 Metres, it was travelling strongly at this time and this was of no concern.

He added DIVINE CALLING continued to travel well and approaching the 400 Metres he shifted the horse out across the heels of WINNING LEADER and obtained clear running at the 400 Metres.

He said DIVINE CALLING initially showed a good turn of foot without being unduly pressured, however, after the 200 Metres he was required to ride it vigorously as the horse was not responding as he anticipated.

He said over the final 200 Metres DIVINE CALLING stayed on only one-paced and although the horse was bumped by KHAYA passing the 50 Metres, this did not have any bearing on DIVINE CALLING's finishing position.

He said having in mind that DIVINE CALLING had clear running throughout the Home Straight, the only reason he could offer for the horse's defeat was the fact that it may not have backed up after its strong first up performance.

A veterinary inspection of DIVINE CALLING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of PLEASURE GAINS immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in the horse's trachea.

DIVINE CALLING, ALL YOU WISH and KHAYA were sent for sampling.
