SINGAPORE OCTOBER MEETING 2018
FRIDAY, 19 OCTOBER 2018:
RACE 7 [TF1296]
The Inquiry into the ride of WONDERFUL in Race 7 at the Singapore Turf Club Meeting on Friday, 19 October 2018 was concluded on Sunday, 21 October 2018. Further evidence was taken from Jockey I Saifudin and also Trainer D Kok. Jockey Saifudin explained that he was instructed to ride his mount back from the wide barrier and to do that lost touch with the bulk of the field. He was then held up from the 500m and then disappointed for clear running near the 300m between TANNHAUSER (V Duric) and LIM'S RALLY (App T See), which was commencing to give ground. He added that he made a decision near the 200m to shift to the outside of EAGLE EYE (C Grylls) rather than go to the inside as he felt that it was going to shift ground inwards. In all the circumstances, the Stewards accepted his explanation.
