When questioned regarding the performance of GLORY BETTING, App KC Tham, in the
presence of his Master, Trainer Nor Azman, stated that he was instructed to get a good jump,
sit handy in 5th/6th/7th position and make his move at the top of the straight as this mare has a
strong finish. He said that after getting a good jump, he was able to sit handy as instructed,
however when he asked for an effort at the top of the straight, his mount did not respond as
expected and was disappointing. His explanation was noted.
