RACE 8 [TF0320]
CLASS 5 LC (A) 1400M
LAND BELOW D WIND (J Powell) and Q NINE MAGIC (G Mosse) bumped on
ASTRO MAN (D Beasley) made contact with ELHAAME (O Chavez) on
jumping, resulting in ELHAAME then shifting outwards carrying HOLY
THOMAS (I Azhar) out onto EAGLESHAM (D David).
ALPHANOVA (V Duric) and JOYOUS (App Y Salim) bumped on jumping.
Near the 1000m, ASTRO MAN and GRAND VITESS (App I Amirul) both
checked when racing to the inside of GOLDEN THUNDER (App WS Chan). Q
NINE MAGIC, EAGLESHAM, ALPHANOVA and COOL CAT (S Sam) were all
inconvenienced as a result. An Inquiry into this incident will be held at a
date to be fixed.
MISS STREISAND (M Rodd) was held up and unable to improve between the
500m and the 300m.
ELHAAME laid inwards in the straight.
An Objection was lodged by Jockey Placais, the rider of second placegetter,
SILK ROUTE, against GOLDEN THUNDER, being declared the winner, on the
grounds of interference over the final 100m. After deliberation and
considering all of the evidence, the Panel of Stewards were of the opinion
that near the 250m, SILK ROUTE shifted outwards away from GOLDEN
THUNDER, which then followed it outwards. SILK ROUTE and GOLDEN
THUNDER continued to shift outwards until the concluding stages. The
Stewards also took into account that Jockey Placais never stopped riding his
mount out. Taking into account the margin and the manner in which both
horses finished off the race, the Panel of Stewards were of the opinion that
the alleged interference had not affected the result of the race. As such, the
Objection was overruled and the result stood.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on ELHAAME which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
