Acting on a report from the Singapore Turf Club Laboratory that GREEN
JACKET (O Placais) had failed its Pre-Race Blood Test, the Race Meeting
Stewards ordered its withdrawal at 1255Hrs. Subsequently, GREEN JACKET
was impounded for analytical examination. In terms of the Rules, GREEN
JACKET cannot race again until cleared by the Stewards. An Inquiry into this
matter was adjourned to a date to be fixed.
GOLD STREAK (V Sivan) was slow to begin.
BLACK RAIN (J Powell) and FOR YOUR EYES ONLY (I Saifudin) proved difficult
to settle in the early and middle stages.
FOR YOUR EYES ONLY and REAL GOODMAN (YF Leong) both raced wide
without cover throughout.
Shortly after making the turn into the straight, GOLD STREAK was hampered
when JACK (App TH Koh) laid inwards under pressure.
Near the 200m, NINETYFIVE POWER (G Boss) steadied when crowded to the
inside of FOR YOUR EYES ONLY, which shifted inwards abruptly.
FOR YOUR EYES ONLY and GOLD STREAK both raced greenly in the straight.
COUNTER PUNCH (S John), which raced poorly, will be required to pass a
1000m gallop trial and veterinary examination prior to being declared to race
Jockey Sivan, the rider of GOLD STREAK, reported that the gelding had
returned with its saddle having shifted back during the running. This was
subsequently confirmed by the Veterinary Surgeon.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on REAL GOODMAN
which revealed no apparent abnormality.
Jockey Boss, when questioned regarding the run of NINETYFIVE POWER,
stated that the gelding was a big striding horse and appeared not to handle
the track conditions. His explanation was noted. NINETYFIVE POWER was
impounded for routine veterinary and analytical examination. The Veterinary
Surgeon reported no apparent abnormality.
