Permission was granted for Jockey A Munro to ride CHEETAH ON FIRE ½kg
overweight. Jockey Munro was subsequently fined a sum of S$200 for
negligence in terms of MRA Rule 152(5)(a) .
TIME ODYSSEY (B Vorster) jumped awkwardly inwards and bumped BLUE
DANUBE (M Nunes) in onto COOPTADO (App MM Firdaus).
COOPTADO then made contact with AFFLECK (D Beasley), which shifted
inwards and bumped KIRKS RYKER (CW Brown) in onto the hindquarters of
WILD GEESE (M Kellady). Shortly after, COOPTADO had to be eased to avoid
the heels of AFFLECK, which rolled outwards.
Shortly after the start, BOURBON GOLDMAN (G Boss) eased when
momentarily crowded between ROCKFAST (D David) and TWICKENHAM (V
Duric), which shifted inwards slightly.
KIRKS RYKER raced keenly in the early stages.
EL PADRINO (O Chavez) raced wide throughout.
Jockey Beasley, when questioned regarding the run of the AFFLECK, stated
that the gelding did not travel well in the early stages, however, it travelled
better in the middle stages. Thereafter, it was disappointed and failed to
respond near the 800m. In addition, it mis-strode on a couple of occasions.
As such, he eased the gelding down over the final 200m. His explanation
was noted. A subsequent veterinary examination revealed that the horse
returned not striding out freely. AFFLECK, which raced poorly, will be
required to pass a 1000m gallop trial and veterinary examination prior to
being declared to race again.
Jockey Nunes reported that BLUE DANUBE was not striding out freely. A
subsequent veterinary examination revealed that the horse returned lame
off-fore. BLUE DANUBE will be required to pass a 1000m gallop trial and
veterinary examination prior to being declared to race again.
