Due to the objection in Race 2, this race was put back five minutes and
rescheduled to start at 1355Hrs.
MARATHON LAD (J Verenzuela) and DANNY (App TH Koh) were both slow to
DRAGON KING (D Beasley) had a tendency to race greenly in the
backstraight and near the 800m, shifted inwards crowding GLIMMERING (D
Bonilla), which steadied and lost ground. MARATHON LAD and DANNY, which
were both following, were also inconvenienced.
DANNY, which was racing keenly, continually steadied from the 800m to the
600m when awkwardly placed on the inside of MARATHON LAD.
Passing the 200m, MARATHON LAD was crowded for room between DANNY
and AMERICAN GLADIATOR (KT Cheng), which shifted outwards under
DANNY was momentarily held up on the heels of GOOD VIBRATIONS (CW
Brown) passing the 100m.
Jockey Verenzuela, when questioned regarding the run of MARATHON LAD,
stated that upon entering the straight, he was unable to secure a clear run
when racing behind BARGAIN BID (S John) and at the same time, he had
GLIMMERING racing to the outside, which had a tendency to lay inwards. He
further stated that if he had tried to improve, he would have raced up onto
the heels of BARGAIN BID Therefore, he attempted to get to the outside to
obtain a clear run. However, when he took his mount out shortly after, it
was momentarily crowded for room before he was able to improve.
Thereafter, MARATHON LAD had run on well. His explanation was noted. A
subsequent veterinary examination was requested on MARATHON LAD which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
