RACE 1 (R1422) CLASS 5 1200M PRIVY COUNCIL HANDICAP
ALEX FIVE O, a course scratching as it had sustained swollen near fore, will be required
to pass a veterinary examination before being declared to race again.
THRUST, which was up 16kgs in body weight since its last run, was checked by the Club
Veterinary Surgeon prior to the race and was passed fit to start.
HALIMS GIFT (M Razali) and GOOD CODE (HS Gill) fly-jumped and were slow into
HANG TUAH ((App SU Lim), which was slowly away, will be required to pass a test
(1 starting stall) before being declared to race again.
Post-race veterinary examinations of HANG TUAH, GOOD CODE, MR NICK FURY
(J De Souza) and JAI HO (J Shankar) revealed no obvious abnormality. MR NICK
FURY which raced poorly, will be required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before being
declared to race again.
When questioned regarding the performance of JAI HO, Jockey J Shankar stated that he
was instructed to get a good jump, sit mid-field and do his best to win. He said that he
was able to ride to his instructions but at the 800M, JAI HO started to lose interest in the
race and he gave him two slaps with the whip to get his mount back into the race. In the
straight, when placed under pressure, JAI HO only responded moderately to his riding
and at the 200M, he had to shift to the inside of GOOD MEANING (App AK Lim) to
obtain clear running. He said that JAI HO was inclined to lay out under pressure. The
Stewards noted his explanation. A post-race veterinary examination of JAI HO revealed
no obvious abnormality.
