CLASS 4 1100M
Prior to the running of Race 3, Trainer HW Tan advised the Stewards that his
instructions to Jockey O Chavez, the rider of SMART PEOPLE, if circumstances
permit, to try and ride in a forward position.
App J See, the rider of RED ANT, 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.
JOE SWIPER (A Munro) lost ground after beginning awkwardly.
SMART PEOPLE began awkwardly.
Near the 800m, SMART PEOPLE, which was racing keenly, steadied outwards
across the heels of METAPHOR (A Da Silva), which shifted inwards.
RED ANT raced wide throughout.
Approaching the 300m, SMART PEOPLE shifted inwards and bumped
SMART PEOPLE and METAPHOR raced tightly and brushed on a number of
occasions between the 200m until near the 100m.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on JOE SWIPER which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
Trainer ZL Mok, when questioned regarding the improved performance of
RED ANT, stated that since the geldings last race, they have been doing
some barrier work in order to get RED ANT to begin better as it has been
beginning slowly in races. He added that with a better start, RED ANT was
able to travel in a more forward position today. He further added that the
gelding appreciated the return to the Polytrack and whilst up in grade, he
believed that the field was weaker than what it had met at its most recent
outings. His explanation was noted.
