RACE 5 [TF0599]
MAIDEN SC (D) 1200M
Permission was granted for Jockey N Juglall to replace Jockey S John on
ELEGENT as the latter was unable to make the weight. Jockey John was
subsequently fined a sum of S$200 in terms of MRA Rule 107(9).
Prior to the running of Race 5, Trainer ZL Mok advised the Stewards that his
instructions to Jockey R Woodworth, the rider of FULL BET, if circumstances
permit, try to race in a forward position.
AGUILA AZTECA (R Shafiq), which was fractious and reared in the barrier,
was taken out and examined by the Veterinary Surgeon. Acting on
veterinary advice, the Panel of Stewards ordered its withdrawal at 1452Hrs.
AGUILA AZTECA will be required to pass one starting stall test and a
veterinary examination prior to being declared to race again in terms of MRA
HOLDING FAST (V Duric) was examined by the Veterinary Surgeon, passed
fit to race and reloaded. HOLDING FAST, which stood flat-footed and lost
considerable ground, will be required to pass one starting stall test prior to
being declared to race again in terms of MRA Rule 78(2).
CONFACET (S Anandan) was slow into stride.
Near the 1000m, LIMS CHARGE (D Beasley) and ELEGENT bumped.
ELEGENT, which was proving difficult to settle, then laid outwards carrying
LIMS CHARGE wider on the track.
LIMS CHARGE raced wide throughout.
After passing the 400m, WAIPAKIHI (J Powell) shifted inwards and made
contact with METAPHOR (App K Toh). As a result, METAPHOR became
awkwardly placed on the heels of FULL BET and had to be eased.
Near the 200m, CONFACET shifted inwards and brushed HOLDING FAST.
Near the 100m, FULL BET steadied when crowded by HOLDING FAST, which
was carried inwards by CONFACET.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on LIMS CHARGE which
revealed that the horse returned not striding out freely.
