GOLDEN KANNA HANDICAP
TIENJIN WARRIOR (HS Gill) was severely crowded for room between BLACK
MAGIC WOMAN (App I Fadzlei) which jumped awkwardly outwards with its head up
and HARD TRUTHS (App KY Yap) which was taken inwards by MIGHTY DIVA (App
R Vikram) which jumped awkwardly inwards. TIENJIN WARRIOR and BLACK
MAGIC WOMAN both lost ground in this incident.
Near the 1200M, MIGHTY DIVA threw its head up when racing ungenerously.
Near the 1100M, MIGHTY DIVA steadied when crowded for room between HARD
TRUTHS which rolled out and TRUE FRIENDSHIP (J Low) which rolled inwards.
Near the 800M, TRUE FRIENDSHIP steadied off the heels of HARD TRUTHS which
SHANGHAI SAM (G Hind) raced keenly and was difficult to settle in the early and
Near the 250M, HARD TRUTHS (App KY Yap) was momentarily held up for a run
between GENERAL GREG (J Shankar) and SHANGHAI SAM which rolled inwards.
Shortly afterwards, HARD TRUTHS switched outwards across the heels of SHANGHAI
SAM in order to obtain clear running.
When questioned regarding the performance of TIENJIN WARRIOR, Jockey HS Gill
stated that he was instructed to get a good jump and try to keep up with the pace. He said
that if the tempo was fast, he was instructed to sit midfield . He said he jumped well,
however was crowded for room shortly after the start and was unable to sit midfield as
instructed and got further back than anticipated. He further said that in the home straight,
TIENJIN WARRIOR laid inwards under pressure but did make up ground late towards
the line. His explanation was noted. A post-race veterinary examination on TIENJIN
WARRIOR revealed no apparent abnormality.
Post-race veterinary examinations on SPEED GURU (M Helmy), KINGSHIP
ADMIRAL (App S Zulfikri) and BLACK MAGIC WOMAN (App I Fadzlei) revealed
no obvious abnormality. BLACK MAGIC WOMAN and SPEED GURU (M Helmy)
which raced poorly, will each be required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before being
declared to race again.
