HAPPY HAPPY STAR began awkwardly and then travelled wide and without cover before commencing to give ground after the 700 Metres.

Near the 250 Metres, SUCCESS ALLSTARS was bumped by FORTUNE PATROL which, when attempting to shift to the outside of TARGET FINDER (M Chadwick), was awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse as TARGET FINDER shifted out under pressure. In this incident, FORTUNE PATROL was held up for clear running when awkwardly placed behind TARGET FINDER. M Chadwick was advised that whilst the Stewards were satisfied that FORTUNE PATROL had not fully established running to the outside of TARGET FINDER, nonetheless he must ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground in similar circumstances.
Close to the finishing line, FORTUNE PATROL raced tight inside LOTUS BREEZE (M F Poon) which shifted in under pressure. As LOTUS BREEZE was shifting in, M F Poon put the whip away and attempted to straighten his mount. Nonetheless he was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.
Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of A Badel (FOREVER SHARP), 5th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horse’s finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

WONDER WIN, which was racing outside SUPER ALLIANCES, shifted out away from that horse, resulting in THE ONE (S de Sousa), which was being ridden along, being crowded onto HERE COMES TED, causing THE ONE and HERE COMES TED to bump. After this, THE ONE was ridden along to obtain a forward position and after the 1100 Metres was steadied in an attempt to obtain cover whilst HERE COMES TED was shifted across behind runners. S de Sousa stated that it was intended for THE ONE to take up a forward position, however, after being crowded for room shortly after the start his mount did not show as much early speed as anticipated and therefore he had no option but to attempt to obtain cover on THE ONE.
Also from wide barriers, DIAMOND LEGEND and HUMBLE STEED were steadied to obtain cover.
Making the turn near the 1050 Metres, HUMBLE STEED became unbalanced when being checked away from the heels of DIAMOND LEGEND.
Passing the 900 Metres, NAVAS was steadied away from the heels of THE ONE (S de Sousa) which shifted in. S de Sousa was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

SUPER ALLIANCES travelled wide and without cover in the early and middle stages and after the 800 Metres was steadied to obtain a position with cover behind WIND PACIFIC.
WIND PACIFIC made the turn after the 600 Metres awkwardly and lay out. After the race, A Badel stated that on straightening he placed WIND PACIFIC under pressure, however, its action deteriorated and the horse commenced to give ground after the 200 Metres. He said as he was not comfortable with the horse’s action, he eased it down over the final 100 Metres. A veterinary inspection of WIND PACIFIC immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. Before being allowed to race again, WIND PACIFIC will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
When questioned regarding the performance of EIGHT TRIGRAMS, C Y Ho stated that as the start was effected the horse turned its head to the right and was consequently slow to begin. He said he then rode EIGHT TRIGRAMS along in the early stages to obtain a prominent position and he was able to shift in to race on the rail behind the eventual winner VICTORY IN HAND near the 800 Metres. He said EIGHT TRIGRAMS did not travel comfortably throughout the middle stages and he had to continually ride his mount along to maintain its position. He said he had to place EIGHT TRIGRAMS under heavy pressure prior to the Home Turn and then in the Straight the horse did not close off the race as anticipated. He added he was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of EIGHT TRIGRAMS. A veterinary inspection of EIGHT TRIGRAMS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. The performance of EIGHT TRIGRAMS, favourite for tonight’s race, was considered unacceptable. Before being allowed to race again, EIGHT TRIGRAMS will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SEATTLE CHOICE then lay in, resulting in NORDIC WARRIOR being inconvenienced near the 50 Metres.
J Moreira (LE TERROIR) stated that the intention was to obtain a forward position on the horse. He said he rode his mount along in the early stages, however, LE TERROIR did not show as much early speed as a number of horses which were drawn more favourably. He said therefore, after travelling a short distance, he believed it was in the best interests of LE TERROIR to obtain cover rather than continuing to ride forward in an attempt to clear runners to his inside. He said this resulted in LE TERROIR racing further back in the field than had been intended.
