RACE 4 (R1549) CLASS 4 1400m(sc) TRIPLE LUCK-2008 HANDICAP
CHAMPAGNE ROSE, a course scratching as it had sustained a cut to its near hind
leg, will be required to pass a veterinary examination before being declared to race
UNDOUBTEDLY CLEVER (HS Gill) jumped awkwardly and was crowded for room
between NUWA (Y Aify) which jumped awkwardly outwards and BLUABLE (J
Shankar) which jumped awkwardly inwards.
Shortly after the start, TRY THE CHANCE (App M Razali), DOUBLE RANSOM
(WK Yan) and SAVOUR (M Yusri) were all crowded for room between BIG EGO
(BN Shahrul) which shifted inwards and UNDOUBTEDLY CLEVER which shifted
outwards. As a result, SAVOUR checked and TRY THE CHANCE stumbled after
clipping the heels of BLUABLE. The Stewards deemed this as a racing incident and
no further action was taken.
The saddle on DOUBLE RANSOM slipped backwards during the running.
Post-race veterinary examinations of BLUABLE and EXCELLENT GOAL (S Sani)
revealed no obvious abnormality.
The Club Veterinary Surgeon reported that DOUBLE RANSOM returned lame off
fore and as such, will be required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before being declared to
race again and SAVOUR returned broken-winded and as such, SAVOUR will be
required to undergo corrective surgery and thereafter pass a 1200M/vet examination
before being declared to race again.
When questioned regarding the performance of CLAYBURY, Jockey J Low stated
that he was instructed to get a good jump, allow the gelding to find its own feet, sit
midfield and try to get cover and to shift outwards in the home straight to get clear

urged along and raced greenly in the backstraight. He further stated that approaching
the 800M, CLAYBURY commenced to improve into the race and rounding the home
turn, he shifted outwards as instructed for clear running and finished the race off
strongly. He also stated that CLAYBURY was racing in stronger field today, after its
last start in 2 & 3 year old race and is still learning to race. His explanation was
noted. A post-race veterinary examination of CLAYBURY revealed no obvious
