After arriving at the barrier, PEER GYNT (M Nunes) had its saddle readjusted.
MY REACH (A Munro) and RISING STAR (App R Rueven) bumped on jumping.
PEER GYNT, which was slow to begin, lost ground when crowded between
DRAGON GOLD (App T See), which jumped outwards and CONFLIGHT (O
Chavez), which jumped inwards abruptly.
CONDADO (App Y Salim) lost ground when inconvenienced on jumping by
MOTHER NATURE (N Juglall), which jumped awkwardly outwards.
Passing the 800m, CONDADO lost its position when crowded between BAIL
OUT (E Aslam) and PEER GYNT, which shifted inwards abruptly. Shortly
after, LUMINIFF LAD (CW Brown) got its head up when being steadied off the
heels of CONFLIGHT.
SHARP KNIGHT (App Z Zuriman) and RISING STAR both raced wide
Approaching the turn into the straight, MY REACH became unbalanced when
bumped inwards by RISING STAR.
Between the 400m and the 300m, CONDADO was unable to secure a clear
run to the inside of BAIL, which in turn was racing tight to the inside of
Passing the 300m, CONFLIGHT and PEER GYNT bumped.
Shortly after passing the 300m, DRAGON GOLD had to be steadied off the
heels of MOTHER NATURE after shifting inwards and away from PEER GYNT,
which in turn had laid inwards.
Approaching the 150m, CONDADO, which was making ground, had to be
checked outwards across the heels of MOTHER NATURE in an endeavour to
obtain clear running. CONDADO, which then made ground quickly, was
unable to secure a clear run over the concluding stages and near the Winning
Post, made contact with DRAGON GOLD.
CONFLIGHT laid inwards in the straight obliging its rider to stop riding and
straighten his mount on a couple of occasions.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on CONDADO which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
The Stewards questioned App Salim regarding the riding of CONDADO
between the 600m and the 400m. Whilst noting that he was riding his
mount along and slapping down on its shoulder with his whip, he was warned
that he would be expected to ride more forcefully when pushing his mounts
out to improve and in a manner so as not to arouse query.
