Recap by phillip woo

Flying Chaparral was left without cover three deep at the 850m in a slow run race, rolled to the front 600m out, was headed approaching mid-straight, regained the front 100m out and held off the late surge of Strong Foundation for an upset win. Strong Foundation got shuffled back to midfield along the rails 600m out, pulled out for a clear run at the 100m and finished well to grab second ahead of Jolly Victor, who closed off well with three wider out after a deep run behind midfield. Willie Invictus made his run behind Flying Chaparral with cover in midfield, moved to second 500m out, poked his head on front 250m out and peaked on his run 50m out. Favourite Royal Partner made a mild bid with one wider out after travelling fourth from the rear with cover one off the fence. Sempiternal strolled forward to park outside the leader Great Charm, was back to fourth coming to the final bend four deep and only held his ground over the final 150m. Albiceleste never let down after travelling third from the rear in a paceless race. Great Charm eventually cleared from a wide gate to lead 1,100m out, was headed 500m out and struggling 200m out. Medallist was disappointing after tracking the speed with cover.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (765)-KINGS FALCON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Metres

AMAZINGLY was slow to begin.

From the outside barriers, ALBICELESTE and BUDDY BUDDIES were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, STRONG FOUNDATION and MEDALLIST raced tight inside SEMPITERNAL which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of GREAT CHARM.

Near the 950 Metres, AMAZINGLY got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of STRONG FOUNDATION.

ALBICELESTE, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

Also near the 950 Metres, ROYAL PARTNER was steadied away from the heels of MEDALLIST which was being steadied to allow SEMPITERNAL to cross.

INDUSTRIALIST WAY, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

For some distance after this, INDUSTRIALIST WAY continued to be awkwardly placed behind ROYAL PARTNER which continued to race close to the heels of MEDALLIST.

After the 900 Metres, when left racing without cover, WILLIE INVICTUS raced keenly.

JOLLY VICTOR lost its left front plate approaching the 800 Metres.

Passing the 500 Metres, MEDALLIST was awkwardly placed inside JOLLY VICTOR which lay in.

When questioned regarding his riding of SEMPITERNAL, N Rawiller stated that he had been instructed to lead if possible as SEMPITERNAL had raced well when ridden in this manner in the past and there did not appear to be any other established leaders in the race.

He said in accordance with his instructions he rode SEMPITERNAL along in the early stages, however, the horse did not show the early speed that he expected and shortly after the start commenced to hang in.

He said he continued to ride his mount along, however, the more he rode the horse, the more it was inclined to hang in.

He said the pace of the race in the early stages was much stronger than anticipated and having in mind SEMPITERNAL did not show natural early speed and was hanging in, he did not believe it was reasonable, given the tempo of the race, to continue riding his mount along.

He said it was also pertinent that STRONG FOUNDATION and MEDALLIST were being ridden along to maintain their positions inside SEMPITERNAL.

He said when GREAT CHARM improved its way around SEMPITERNAL passing the winning post on the first occasion, this ensured that the tempo of the race continued to be strong and he felt it was not in the best interests of the horse for him to continue to ride it along.

He added he anticipated that once GREAT CHARM was able to lead, the tempo of the race would slacken which it did after the 1200 Metres.

He said when this occurred he allowed SEMPITERNAL to improve its way forward of MEDALLIST and he was able to shift SEMPITERNAL to race outside GREAT CHARM after the 1000 Metres.

He said after obtaining this position SEMPITERNAL travelled well and he was content to remain racing outside GREAT CHARM.

He said however that at the 700 Metres FLYING CHAPARRAL improved around SEMPITERNAL and whilst he did give consideration to improving at this time to prevent that horse from crossing into the lead, he did not believe that this would be in the best interests of SEMPITERNAL given that had occurred early in the race.

He added he did not believe that commencing his finishing run from the 700 Metres would allow SEMPITERNAL the opportunity to finish off the race having in mind the fast early sectionals of the race.

He said for this reason he allowed FLYING CHAPARRAL to continue forward of SEMPITERNAL and permitted WILLIE INVICTUS to improve around his horse near the 500 Metres.

He said he commenced to ride his mount along when the pace of the race increased approaching the 400 Metres and SEMPITERNAL, given the circumstances of the race, finished off the race quite well.

After having considered the sectionals of the race in particular from the start until the 1200 Metres and after having considered N Rawiller's explanation, the Stewards too no further action.

After the race, T H So (INDUSTRIALIST WAY) said his mount did not travel well throughout the race and when the pace increased after the 500 Metres, INDUSTRIALIST WAY was left flat-footed and then did not finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of INDUSTRIALIST WAY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of MEDALLIST and ALBICELESTE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
