Mc Naught threw its head at the start and was slow out. Mount Fuji and Kapiti Coast were slow into stride. Fyrkat raced wide without cover throughout the race. Marine Sky raced wide from approaching the 450 metres. Near the 400 metres Mount Fuji was steadied when awkward close to the heels of Fidelis. Kapiti Coast, which was following, was inconvenienced and had to be steadied. Leaving the 300 metres Mount Fuji was taken out from behind Fidelis to secure clear running and carried Tiger Master wider on the track. Leaving the 200 metres Kaafel shifted in under pressure, brushing the running rails. Joe’s Legacy shifted out over the concluding stages, inconveniencing Wonderlaine, which was improving on its outside with Wonderlaine having to be eased and taken out to avoid its heels. At an inquiry into this incident, jockey Sooful (Joe’s Legacy) pleaded guilty to a charge under MTC 160 A (d) for failing to take the necessary steps to ensure that his mount did not interfere with another horse. He was fined Rs.20,000. When questioned, jockey Chumun (Fyrkat) explained that he was instructed to insist over 50 metres, to endeavour to secure a position where comfortable and ride his mount out from the 400 metres. He added that approaching the 1300 metres he found himself racing wide, as such he elected to take his mount back to secure a position behind Wonderlaine, however Marine Sky, which was following, insisted, resulting in him being caught wide. He added that when asked for an effort leaving the 500 metres, Fyrkat failed to respond and was disappointing. A veterinary examination of Fyrkat revealed that it was not striding out properly after the race. The Club’s Veterinary Surgeon reported that Kaafel was lame on the off fore leg.

Routine urine and blood specimens were taken for analysis from Mount Fuji after the race.

Mount Hillaby jumped awkwardly and shifted out shortly after the start. Ready For Take Off shifted in on jumping, crowding Cosmic Code onto Prince Lateral. Accountability was slow into stride and was taken across to race behind runners. Jambamman was taken back from the start and approaching the 1300 metres had to be eased to avoid the heels of Harryhopeithappens, which was being taken in when insufficiently clear. At an inquiry into this incident, jockey Rama (Harryhopeithappens) pleaded guilty to a charge under MTC Rule 160 A (e) for careless riding and was suspended from riding in races for two Mauritian race meetings, however taking into consideration his good record under this rule, he was suspended from riding in races for one Mauritian race meeting. Passing the 1300 metres Ferdnand The Bull was crowded for room and had to be steadied to avoid the heels of Fleetfox, which was being taken in when insufficiently clear. At an inquiry into this incident, jockey Joorawon (Fleetfox) pleaded guilty to a charge under MTC Rule 160 A (e) for careless riding and was suspended from riding in races for two Mauritian race meetings, however taking into consideration his good record under this rule, he was suspended from riding in races for one Mauritian race meeting.

Passing the 1100 metres Fleetfox, which was over-racing, shifted out when awkward close to the heels of Mount Hillaby and bumped Ferdnand The Bull on its hindquarter, unbalancing the latter. Leaving the 900 metres Harryhopeithappens, which was over-racing, shifted in when awkward close to the heels of Ready For Take Off, bumping Jambamman on its inside. Near the 400 metres Harryhopeithappens was taken out to avoid the heels of Jambamman and carried Ready For Take Off wider on the track, with the latter racing wide from then onwards. Near the 150 metres Jambamman was taken out from behind Mount Hillaby to secure clear running and over the last 100 metres shifted out away from the whip. Jockey Sturgeon (Jambamman) was shown the video replays of the home straight and told to straighten his mounts when they shift ground. The Club’s Veterinary Surgeon reported that both Mount Hillaby and Prince Lateral were lame on their near fore leg and that an endoscopic examination of Navistar, which was not striding out properly and was coughing after the race, revealed mucus in its trachea.

Routine urine and blood specimens were taken for analysis from Jambamman after the race.

From its wide draw Down Under was taken across to race behind runners. Gharbee was slow out. Grays Champ was slow into stride. Approaching the 1850 metres Blaze Of Noon had to be steadied when awkward close to the heels of Silver Dice. Gharbee over-raced from leaving the 1800 metres and threw its head, racing ungenerously when being settled. Passing the 1300 metres Independence was taken out to avoid the heels of Cherish The Charm and, in doing so, bumped Gharbee on its outside, with the latter being taken out wider on the track. From the 950 metres Gharbee was allowed to stride forward to race closer to the leader. Gray’s Champ commenced to give ground from the 450 metres and was not persevered with. A veterinary examination of Gray’s Champ revealed that it was lame on the near hind leg. Near the 350 metres Independence was taken out from behind Cherish The Charm to improve its position and, in doing so, carried Gharbee wider on the track. Approaching the 300 metres Trackmaster was taken out to secure clear running and raced wide rounding the home turn. When questioned, jockey Fayd’herbe (Gharbee) explained that he was instructed to bounce his mount and place it on the fence in front of the two horses on his inside, however after jumping well and asking his mount for an effort, Blaze of Noon and Silver Dice, which were drawn inside, were faster than his mount, as such he elected to settle Gharbee behind them, at the same time the pace slowed with Gharbee commencing to over-race. He added that he then decided to try and improve around these two horses in view to secure a position on the fence close to the leader, however could not do so with Gharbee being caught wide without cover and over-racing. He further added that passing the 1300 metres, Gharbee was bumped and carried wider on the track by Independence. He also said that from leaving the 1000 metres, seeing that the pace had slowed down and that his mount was over-racing, he elected to let it improve on the outside of horses to race closer to the leader hoping that the leader would then increase the pace and that his mount would settle but Gharbee failed to settle. Jockey Fayd’herbe concluded by saying that in hindsight it might have been better for him to settle Gharbee behind Silver Dice shortly after the start but having received strict instructions he decided against doing so.

Routine urine and blood specimens were taken for analysis from Trackmaster after the race.

This race was run in rain.

Prior to the start Vettel was fractious in its gate and threw its head on jumping. Diamond Light jumped awkwardly and shortly after the start was cramped for room between Night In Seattle and Man To Man, which had been taken in by Bouclette Top, which had jumped inwards. From approaching the 1800 metres Parachute Man, which was endeavouring to secure the position one off the fence behind Vettel, commenced to over-race and was taken out and allowed to stride forward to secure a position closer to the leader; in doing so Parachute Man raced wide in the early stages. Approaching the 1600 metres, when the pace slackened, Diamond Light had to be steadied when awkward close to the heels of Man To Man. Rampart Ice, which was following, had to be taken out to avoid its heels. From leaving the 700 metres Vettel dropped the bit and despite being urged forward commenced to give ground. When questioned, jockey Joorawon (Parachute Man) explained that he managed to secure a good position in the early stages, however the gelding commenced to over-race with his saddle shifting sideways slightly and once he managed to put it back, Parachute Man raced relaxed and when asked for an effort leaving the 300 metres Parachute Man stayed one pace and was disappointing. A subsequent veterinary examination of Parachute Man revealed no abnormality. When questioned, jockey Guillambert (Vettel) explained that he was instructed to endeavour to lead and, after jumping well and urging his mount forward, Vettel could not muster enough speed to secure the lead, as such he elected to settle his mount just behind the pace. He added that from leaving the 1000 metres Vettel dropped the bit and shortened its stride and, when urged forward, the gelding refused to do so, as such he did not persevere with the latter. An endoscopic examination of Vettel revealed mucus in its trachea. The Club’s Veterinary Surgeon reported that Bold Inspiration was lame on the near fore leg.

Routine urine and blood specimens were taken for analysis from Night In Seattle after the race.

Acting on veterinary advice that Step To Fame was unfit to race, the Stewards ordered its withdrawal at 8.30 a.m. on Friday. In view of this withdrawal, all bets on Step To Fame were ordered to be refunded and betting with bookmakers was re-opened.

Nadas and Power To Please were slow to begin. Brachetto jumped awkwardly and was brushed by Power Dive, which had jumped inwards. Approaching the 700 metres Plain Of Wisdom had to be eased when awkward close to the heels of Count Emmanuale. Nadas, which was following, was also inconvenienced and had to be eased to avoid the heels of Plain of Wisdom. Power To Please and Power Dive raced wide from leaving the 600 metres. An inquiry was held into the handling of Count Emmanuale. Trainer J. M. Henry explained that he asked jockey Goomany to endeavour to beat the two horses on his inside, secure a position on the fence and if someone else was quicker than him, settle in second position and wait for the home straight for his best effort. Jockey Goomany confirmed these instructions and explained that, after jumping well, he managed to secure a position on the fence in front of Plain Of Wisdom and that passing the 600 metres he received some crowding from Don’t Tell Mama, which was improving on his outside with Don’t Tell Mama crossing him at the 350 metres. He added that he managed to secure an inside run in the home straight with Count Emmanuale quickening nicely but failed to catch Don’t Tell Mama, getting beaten by a short head. When questioned, jockey Goomany explained that he did not keep Don’t Tell Mama to the outside leaving the 700 metres as he was of the opinion that he was travelling at a good pace and had he asked his mount for an effort, it would not have run on over the concluding stages. Trainer Henry concurred and explained that it was Count Emmanuale’s best run in the last two years, as such he did not see much wrong in his jockey’s ride. After consideration, jockey Goomany was found guilty of a charge under MTC Rule 160 A (a) in that he failed to take all reasonable and permissible measures to ensure that, throughout the race, Count Emmanuale was given full opportunity to win or obtain the best possible place in the field, the particulars being that leaving the 700 metres until approaching the 500 metres, over approximately a distance of 200 metres, he over-restrained Count Emmanuale, thereby allowing Don’t Tell Mama, which was racing on his outside, to improve its position and eventually to cross in front of him and have the first run when it was reasonable and permissible in the relevant circumstances for him to let his mount stride freely in its pace during this section of the race and keep Don’t Tell Mama on his outside without asking his mount for much of an effort. He was suspended from riding in races for six weeks.

Routine urine and blood specimens were taken for analysis from Don’t Tell Mama after the race.

After being loaded Vintage Angel became fractious, reared and fell back in its gate, injuring jockey Bhaugeerothee. Since jockey Bhaugeerothee was injured, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of Vintage Angel at the start. In view of this, all bets on Vintage Angel were ordered to be refunded and no deduction was made on winning bets with bookmakers, the average price of Vintage Angel being 79-1.

Noordhoek Ice jumped awkwardly and was slow out. Smitten was slow out and shortly after was cramped for room between Criss Cross Man and Var’s Dream, which had jumped inwards. Leaving the 1200 metres The Deacon was taken out when awkward close to the heels of Var’s Dream. Sail To Paradise raced wide in the early stages. Freedom raced wide throughout. Leaving the 1100 metres The Deacon shifted in abruptly, carrying Tigre Libre inwards onto Right To Tango with the latter becoming cramped for galloping room and having to be checked. When questioned, jockey Fayd’herbe (The Deacon) explained that leaving the 1200 metres his mount grabbed the bit on one side, shifted out abruptly and leaving the 1100 metres shifted back in and when he heard calling on his inside he had to take evasive actions to take his mount out. The Stewards, being of the opinion that the incident occurred due to the behaviour of The Deacon, decided not to proceed further. Trainer Rousset stated that he was concerned about the gelding’s behaviour in its races and that he will take appropriate measures to ensure that The Deacon stops racing erratically in future as it has shown potential. Leaving the 250 metres Right To Tango was taken out from behind Tigre Libre and in doing so carried Sail To Paradise wider on the track. The Club’s Veterinary Surgeon reported that The Deacon was lame on the off fore leg.

Routine urine and blood specimens were taken for analysis from Var’s Dream after the race.
