Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Exultant travelling a distant fourth in Indian file took control 400m with his move at the 650m to win in great fashion. He's the champion stayer for a reason and will be hard to beat in December's International Races. Furore stayed on well for second travelling a position further back from the eventual winner. He was unlucky last start and suited by the step up in distance here. Southern Legend kept on well for a placing despite being held up for a run behind the tiring leaders until the 200m following a prominent run. Rise High came up one paced over the last 150m with a move widest out from near the rear. Ho Ho Khan came up flat over the last 100m after looming a partial chance mid-straight following a patient ride at the tail of the field. He was badly handicapped but needs a wet track and likely a longer trip. Eagle Way got badly squeezed up between runners at the 200m when trying to get going from near the back.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (176) - THE JOCKEY CLUB CUP - Class G2 - 2000Meters

From the outside barriers, RISE HIGH and HO HO KHAN were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

When being steadied to obtain a trailing position passing the 1800 Metres, GLORIOUS FOREVER travelled keenly.

Passing the 900 Metres, FURORE raced tight inside DARK DREAM.

After passing the 300 Metres, GLORIOUS FOREVER (S de Sousa), which was giving ground, shifted out away from SOUTHERN LEGEND as that horse improved to its inside, resulting in EAGLE WAY, which had been racing tight inside HO HO KHAN, being checked approaching the 200 Metres.

S de Sousa was advised that whilst there were some circumstances to this incident, nonetheless in similar situations he would be expected to react quicker than he did on this occasion to his horses shifting ground so as to prevent causing interference to other horses.

For some distance after the 300 Metres, EAGLE WAY raced in restricted room between HO HO KHAN and GLORIOUS FOREVER which shifted out when giving ground.

Then near the 200 Metres, EAGLE WAY was checked when unable to maintain its position between HO HO KHAN and GLORIOUS FOREVER which shifted out when continuing to give ground.

After this, GLORIOUS FOREVER was eased down.

A veterinary inspection of GLORIOUS FOREVER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of GLORIOUS FOREVER, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, GLORIOUS FOREVER will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned, J Moreira (DARK DREAM) stated that approaching the 1100 Metres he was racing one horse off the rail outside FURORE.

He said near the 1050 Metres DARK DREAM improved to be racing just outside the heels of EXULTANT and when EXULTANT shifted out from behind SOUTHERN LEGEND near the 1000 Metres, this resulted in DARK DREAM being taken into a three wide position without cover.

He said he attempted to shift DARK DREAM in to follow EXULTANT one horse off the rail and in doing so caused some crowding to FURORE which had shifted away from the rail to be following EXULTANT.

He said after making contact with FURORE and being aware that FURORE had established a position one horse off the rail, he was unable to obtain a trailing position behind EXULTANT.

He said making the turn after the 900 Metres FURORE bumped DARK DREAM which resulted in DARK DREAM being placed outside the heels of EXULTANT and as he was aware that that horse may shift out further to the outside of GLORIOUS FOREVER, he elected to ride his mount along in an attempt to improve around EXULTANT so as not to be taken unreasonably wider.

He said as he did this EXULTANT shifted to the outside of GLORIOUS FOREVER approaching the 700 Metres which resulted in DARK DREAM being taken into a four wide position without cover.

He further stated that DARK DREAM then came under pressure and commenced to give ground after the 600 Metres.

The performance of DARK DREAM, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, DARK DREAM will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of TIME WARP immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

EXULTANT and FURORE were sent for sampling.
