RACE 5 [TF0442]
THE ROYAL TURF CLUB OF THAILAND TROPHY
GRADUATION SC (A) 1200M
App R Shafiq, the rider of STORM TROOPER, was fined a sum of S$200 for
negligence in terms of MRA Rule 152(5)(a) in that he failed to claim and ride
at his declared riding weight.
Due to a delay in the start time of Race 4, this race was put back five
minutes and rescheduled to start at 1455Hrs.
STORM TROOPS (J Powell) was slow to begin.
MR FANTASTIC (App MM Firdaus), which was marginally slow to begin, was
crowded shortly after the start between MINGS MAN (App Z Zuriman), which
shifted inwards slightly and EXCELLENT MAGIC (A Munro), which shifted
A LA VICTORY (CW Brown) jumped awkwardly inwards inconveniencing
DYLAN (C Newitt). Shortly thereafter, DYLAN lost ground when crowded
between ROYAL RULER (B Vorster) and A LA VICTORY, which shifted inwards.
Near the 1000m, KAMS COMET (M Nunes), which was racing keenly, shifted
outwards carrying EXCELLENT MAGIC outwards. At the same time, A LA
VICTORY shifted inwards. This resulted in STORM TROOPER losing ground
after having to be eased and MR FANTASTIC, which was following, also
having to be eased.
Near the 800m, STORM TROOPS shifted outwards after getting up onto the
heels of KAMS COMET and in so doing, inconvenienced MR FANTASTIC.
Shortly after passing the 800m, KAMS COMET checked when racing between
GREAT BALLS OFFIRE (App K AIsisuhairi) to its inside and EXCELLENT
MAGIC and A LA VICTORY to its outside. An Inquiry into this incident will be
held at a date to be fixed.
Near the 50m, GREAT BALLS OFFIRE eased when crowded between A LA
VICTORY, which laid inwards and ROYAL RULER which laid outwards. GREAT
BALLS OFFIRE then raced in restricted room over the concluding stages.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on MR FANTASTIC which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
