Acting on veterinary advice that KAZUO (App S Shafrizal) was found to be
lame near-fore, the Panel of Stewards ordered its withdrawal at 1731Hrs. In
terms of MRA Regulation 24.2, it must be presented to an Official Veterinary
Surgeon prior to being declared to race again.
Jockey O Chavez, the rider of RUM N RAISINS, was dislodged enroute to the
barrier. It then cantered for a short distance before being captured. RUM N
RAISINS was subsequently examined by the Veterinary Surgeon and passed
fit to race.
LETS TALK NOW (App CK Ng) jumped awkwardly inwards and bumped RUM
N RAISINS heavily in onto LOUEY VELOCE (V Duric), which in turn made
contact with BLUE DIAMOND (O Placais).
MACARTHUR (M Rodd) jumped awkwardly outwards at the start bumping
COTE DE NUITS (I Saifudin) out onto FINE CHOICE (R Shafiq), resulting in
both of those horses becoming unbalanced.
Shortly after the start, LETS TALK NOW was inconvenienced by SATELLITE
BOY (App MM Firdaus), which shifted inwards.
FINE CHOICE and EFFORTLESS (J Powell) both raced wide throughout.
Near the 400m, COTE DE NUITS checked when racing to the outside of
LOUEY VELOCE and SATELLITE BOY. An Inquiry into this incident will be held
at a date to be fixed.
Near the 300m, EFFORTLESS had difficulty obtaining clear running for a short
Jockey Rodd, when questioned regarding the performance of MACARTHUR,
stated that although the gelding was inclined to hang outwards in the
straight, he was not disappointed with todays effort as MACARTHUR would
appreciate stepping up further in distance. His explanation was noted. A
subsequent veterinary examination was requested on MACARTHUR which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
