The Stewards questioned Jockey L Sofhan, the rider of HAHA BABE, regarding the geldings
performance, and he explained that his instructions were to be midfield which were confirmed
from the Trainers Instruction Form. He further explained that HAHA BABE began well and
raced fiercely and he was unable to settle the horse midfield as his instructions, and that on
entering the straight when put under pressure, HAHA BABE responded fairly until racing to
the 200M when the gelding commenced to weaken and failed to finish the race off. The

The Stewards questioned Jockey N Callow, the rider of NONNOS CHAMP, regarding the
geldings performance, and he explained that his instructions were to be midfield which were
confirmed from the Trainers Instruction Form, however, as a result of NONNOS CHAMP
being slow into stride, he was unable to carry out those instructions early in the race and as a
consequence, he elected to ride quietly until approaching the 1000M when he elected to be
positive and to ride forward to improve his position. He stated that NONNOS CHAMP
travelled well until entering the straight and responded to his riding fairly but over the final
50M, commenced to weaken. The Stewards noted his explanation for revision.
