WINASWEWISH lost ground when crowded for room on jumping between AMAZING FEELING and GREAT TREASURE which shifted in when being steadied to obtain cover from a wide barrier.
Passing the winning post on the first occasion, GREAT TREASURE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of JOLLY AMBER.
Passing the 1400 Metres, GREAT JOY got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SOUL ACHIEVER. Then for some distance after the 1300 Metres, GREAT JOY continued to be awkwardly placed close to the heels of SOUL ACHIEVER.
S Clipperton (HALL OF FAME) pleaded not guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 1300 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of GENTRY, resulting in that horse being checked when taken in onto the heels of GREAT JOY. After having considered further submissions put by S Clipperton in answer to the charge, the Stewards did not believe in the circumstances that it was appropriate for the charge to be sustained. In arriving at this decision, the Stewards found that HALL OF FAME, which had been racing ungenerously in the lead up to this incident, shifted in marginally and at the same time GREAT JOY, which was racing to the inside of GENTRY, was being steadied away from the heels of SOUL ACHIEVER. As there were a number of circumstances associated with this incident, the Stewards believed that S Clipperton should be given the benefit of the doubt, however, he was reprimanded and told to ensure that he makes every endeavour to leave comfortable racing room for runners to his inside in similar circumstances.
After the 1300 Metres, HALL OF FAME improved into tight running between GREAT JOY and NEVER BETTER.
After the race, H W Lai (GREAT TREASURE) reported that his mount did not feel comfortable in its action. A veterinary inspection of GREAT TREASURE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. Before being allowed to race again, GREAT TREASURE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
