Recap by phillip woo

A step up in grade off a light weight did the trick for Peace N Prosperity who just held off late-fancied Secret Command after rushing to the lead 180m out following a deep run without much cover in midfield. Secret Command finished soundly with two wider out to just miss the win after a patient ride second from the rear from an outside alley. Plunged late, General Iron cornered five deep after travelling one off the fence fore of midfield and stayed on nicely to grab a placing. Goal For Gold was beaten for speed, but got home strongly two from the right to fill the frame. He's caught the eye in two outings for his new trainer. Supreme Falcon crept closer approaching the straight following a one-out, oneback run and was only one-paced over the final 150m. You Read My Mind handed up the lead to Startling Power 800m out, shifted back to the fence at the 200m and kept grinding away without menacing. Favourite Divine Boy inched closer coming to the final bend after a deep run with cover beyond midfield, swung the final bend with three wider out and peaked on his move 100m out. Happy Yeah Yeah had to briefly steady his feet at the 250m after a prominent run along the fence, but didn't find much over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (344)-THE JAPAN RACING ASSOCIATION TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 2 - 1200Metres

On arrival at the Start, it was noted that YOU READ MY MIND had cast its right front plate.

The start was delayed when YOU READ MY MIND required replating.

After being replated, YOU READ MY MIND was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said that in his opinion it was suitable to race.

FURIOUS PEGASUS began only fairly.

SECRET COMMAND began awkwardly.

PEACE N PROSPERITY shifted in at the start and bumped GENERAL IRON.

Shortly after the start, YOU READ MY MIND and STARTLING POWER bumped.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, LUCKY DOUBLE EIGHT got its head on the side and lay in resulting in FURIOUS PEGASUS begin crowded for room.

As LUCKY DOUBLE EIGHT was shifted out to relieve the tightening to FURIOUS PEGASUS, LUCKY DOUBLE EIGHT and DIVINE BOY bumped.

For some distance after the 600 Metres, GENERAL IRON got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SUPREME FALCON.

Then passing the 500 Metres, GENERAL IRON was checked away from the heels of SUPREME FALCON.

LUCKY DOUBLE EIGHT, which was following GENERAL IRON, was shifted out away from the heels of GENERAL IRON in consequence and bumped DIVINE BOY.

SECRET COMMAND, which was following, was inconvenienced in consequence.

Approaching the 500 Metres, HAPPY YEAH YEAH lost ground when having to be checked away from the heels of YOU READ MY MIND which was awkwardly placed close to the heels of STARTLING POWER (Y T Cheng) due to the pace slackening.

Y T Cheng was advised that whilst, in the opinion of the Stewards, the tempo of the race had slackened markedly at this point, they were satisfied that this was not as a result of any actions on his behalf to restrain STARTLING POWER and that STARTLING POWER had lost ground at this time of its own accord.

Nonetheless Y T Cheng was severely reprimanded for not being more alert to STARTLING POWER losing momentum at this time which would have afforded him the opportunity to take appropriate measures to ensure that runners behind STARTLING POWER had adequate time to react.

Near the 300 Metres, HAPPY YEAH YEAH was steadied and shifted to the outside of YOU READ MY MIND after being disappointed for running inside that horse which was improving to the inside of STARTLING POWER which shifted in.

In the circumstances, the Stewards were satisfied that there was no rider error associated with this incident and accordingly no further action was taken.

Passing the 300 Metres, GENERAL IRON was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PEACE N PROSPERITY and near the 250 Metres was shifted to the outside of that horse to obtain clear running.

Throughout the race, HIGH VOLATILITY travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the performance of DIVINE BOY, J Moreira stated that it had been intended for the horse to be ridden from off the pace as it had been in its previous starts when successful.

He said in the early stages he was left racing wide and he was not able to shift across to race any closer than three wide.

He said when left racing wide without cover, DIVINE BOY travelled keenly and because of this raced in a more forward position than had been intended.

He added because of the circumstances of the race DIVINE BOY was then not able to finish off the race as strongly as it had done in its previous starts.

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

A veterinary inspection of LUCKY DOUBLE EIGHT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
