After arriving at the barrier, both DRAGON SPIRIT (App T See) and STORM
TROOPER (M Nunes) had their saddle readjusted.
JUST NAME IT (O Chavez), was slow to begin after being crowded on
jumping between LAKE HUKA (M Rodd) and DRAGON SPIRIT, which shifted
STORM TROOPER and POLE PARADISE (App J See) bumped on jumping, this
resulted in POLE PARADISE shifting outwards and making contact with
ARROWHEAD (App M Khalid).
SATELLITE PRINCE (N Juglall) which jumped away awkwardly, was bumped
heavily shortly after the start when METEORBOUND (A Da Silva), shifted
Approximately 50m after the start, STORM TROOPER lost ground when
crowded between POLE PARADISE and INVINCIBLE MAN (App WS Chan),
which laid outwards.
Approaching the 1100m, SATELLITE PRINCE checked when crowded between
METEORBOUND, which rolled outwards and AMAZON GOLD (A Munro), which
SOLITAIRE (J Powell), JUST NAME IT and LAKE HUKA all raced wide from the
POLE PARADISE shifted outwards abruptly approaching the Winning Post
resulting in App J See losing his near-side iron.
Jockey M Nunes, when questioned regarding the run of STORM TROOPER
stated that he was crowded shortly after the start. He further stated that
STORM TROOPER never travelled well and was reluctant to stride out. He
further stated that STORM TROOPER may have resented the kickback. In
addition, he stated that STORM TROOPER had run on only fairly when placed
under pressure in the straight. STORM TROOPER was impounded for routine
veterinary and analytical examination. The Veterinary Surgeon reported that
the gelding returned lame off-fore and such will be required to pass a 1000m
gallop trial and veterinary examination prior to being declared to race again.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on SOLITAIRE which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on AMAZON GOLD which
revealed that the gelding returned not striding out freely.
