Description
1 T339  MASSIVE POWER  26/02/2017  445  MASSIVE POWER (T339) when questioned regarding the performance, rider stated that, from an inside barrier, he was able to obtain a good run throughout the race behind a genuine speed. He said however that the horse did not show any turn of foot when asked rounding the Home Turn and then failed to respond to his riding in the Straight and was disappointing. Performance as a favourite for the race was considered unacceptable. Has since performed to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and passed an official vet exam - Race 445.
2 T335  MR KOOL  05/03/2017  465  MR KOOL (T335) began awkwardly. Approaching the 1000M was steadied to obtain cover after initially being ridden along to obtain a forward position. When questioned regarding the performance, rider stated that the horse was agitated before the start and was then restless in the stalls. He said it had been hoped for the horse to take up a forward position and, with that in mind, he rode his mount aggressively in the early stages in an endeavour to clear a runner to his inside. He said, despite being ridden along, the horse did not show any early speed and passing the 1000M was left racing very wide. He said he therefore elected to steady the horse making the first turn near the 900M and shift across to obtain cover. He said the horse came off the bridle after the 700M and then, despite being hard pushed rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, did not quicken. The horse then did not respond to his riding after that and was disappointing. He added that, in his opinion, the horse may be better suited racing at Happy Valley where its performances had exceeded those at Sha Tin - Race 465.
