RACE 2 [TF641]
HARDCORE ROCK (M Nunes), which was restless in the barrier, was slow to
begin after jumping away awkwardly and making contact with TOU SHOU
BRIGHT (A Munro).
HERE COME BUDDY (M Au) and JUSEAGLEYE (S Sam) bumped on jumping.
ROYAL FLUSH (D Flores), which was difficult to settle, had to be eased off the
heels of HERE COME BUDDY near the 1000m.
TOU SHOU BRIGHT raced wide throughout.
FULL MEANING (O Chavez) was inconvenienced when carried wider on the
track when ART OF WAR (App WL Tan) hung outwards making the turn near
FULL MEANING raced greenly in the straight and laid out for some distance
after passing the 200m. FULL MEANING then laid inwards under pressure
over the concluding stages and made contact with TOU SHOU BRIGHT
passing the Winning Post.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on ART OF WAR which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
Jockey Chavez, when questioned regarding the run of FULL MEANING, stated
that he was instructed to race in a position worse than midfield in an attempt
to allow the gelding to finish the race off. He stated that shortly after the
start, he was looking to obtain a position behind ART OF WAR, however,
when that runner did not improve forward, he found himself caught wide
outside this runner. He further added that he had been instructed FULL
MEANING had a tendency to race greenly and was wearing Blinkers and
Pacifiers in a race for the first time tonight. He was therefore reluctant to
pressure the gelding to take up a more forward position rounding the bend
near the 700m as he believed that FULL MEANING would hang out when he
was being carried wide by ART OF WAR, which was laying out against FULL
MEANING at this stage of the race. Approaching the 600m, he elected to
allow the gelding to take up a more forward position as he was receiving
further pressure from his inside. He elected to shift out wider after entering
the homestraight to place FULL MEANING in clear running. He added that
FULL MEANING raced greenly in the straight and shifted away from the whip
on several occasions. His explanation was noted.
