OPEN BENCHMARK 67 LC (E) 1400M
KAI POWER (App R Zawari) was restless in the barrier. Trainer B Dean was
advised that a warning has been placed on KAI POWER regarding its barrier
manners and to take steps to improve them or action may be taken in future.
MY BROTHERS KEEPER (CW Brown) lost ground after beginning awkwardly.
LAKE HUKA (B Vorster) began awkwardly.
PROFESSOR X (O Chavez) jumped awkwardly outwards and bumped
DAVINCI (M Rodd), resulting in PROFESSOR X becoming unbalanced, shifting
inwards and bumping POLE PARADISE (App J See).
Approaching the 1300m, PROFESSOR X, which was proving difficult to settle,
steadied off the heels of DAVINCI, which shifted inwards.
PROFESSOR X raced wide from the 1100m.
Near the 1100m, POLE PARADISE, which was racing keenly, steadied
outwards across the heels of POSEIDON (A Munro), making contact with
PROFESSOR X and carrying that gelding wider on the track.
Near the 600m, PROFESSOR X was bumped outwards by SCOUT DONE (TH
Koh), which in turn had been bumped by EAGLE STORM (A Da Silva), which
was carried outwards slightly by MAC VOLKS (K Fujii).
Between the 500m and the 300m, POLE PARADISE had some difficulty
obtaining clear running when following POSEIDON, which was racing greenly
and having a tendency to lay outwards.
Near the 200m, DAVINCI checked when racing to the outside of SCOUT
DONE to its inside and POLE PARADISE to its outside. An Inquiry into this
incident will be held at a date to be fixed.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on PROFESSOR X which
revealed that the horse exhibited signs of respiratory distress after the race.
PROFESSOR X will be required to pass a 1000m gallop trial and veterinary
examination prior to being declared to race again.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on POLE PARADISE
which revealed no apparent abnormality.
