Approaching the 1000m, GALAXY EXPRESS (K Fujii) shifted inwards and
bumped STANZOUT, which had been bumped outwards by BIMALA.
JOE SWIPER and SUN DANCE (R Woodworth) both raced wide throughout.
APPELLATION (R Shafiq) was held up for clear running from the 600m until
after passing the 300m.
Near the 500m, INSOFAR was eased inwards to avoid the heels of NATURAL
NICE (V Duric), which rolled inwards.
Between the 150m and the 50m, NATURAL NICE was carried outwards by
INSOFAR, which shifted ground under pressure.
Approaching the 100m, SING ENERGY shifted outwards away from
APPELLATION, which was shifting outwards when improving.
The Farrier reported that BIMALA returned having cast its off-fore plate.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on NATURAL NICE which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
Jockey M Nunes, when questioned regarding the run of JOYOUS, stated that
after being unable to lead, the gelding travelled only fairly in the early and
middle stages. Thereafter, his mount failed to respond from the 600m and
had disappointed. His explanation was noted. A subsequent veterinary
examination was requested on JOYOUS which revealed no apparent
abnormality. JOYOUS, which raced poorly, will be required to pass a 1000m
gallop trial from the barrier and a veterinary examination prior to being
declared to race again.
