RACE 1 [TF0638]
CLASS 5 POLYTRACK 1100M
ALWAYS A WINNER (B Vorster) and GOOD LOOUKEN (M Esposito) bumped
Shortly after the start, GOOD BUDDY (HK Cheng) and GOOD LOOUKEN both
lost ground when crowded between ALWAYS A WINNER, which shifted
inwards and OUR RIVER DANCER (App MM Firdaus), which was carried
outwards by DRAGON NINETYNINE (TH Koh).
At the same time, APPELLATION (M Nunes) checked when crowded between
EXCEPTIONAL CHOICE (App R Zawari) and BINGO (App R Shafiq), which was
carried outwards by GOLDEN RABBIT (App P Dellorto).
Near the 1000m, BINGO was buffeted between EXCEPTIONAL CHOICE and
GOLDEN RABBIT, which shifted outwards and away from OASIS SPUR (App J
OASIS SPUR raced wide from the 800m.
Near the 400m, EXCEPTIONAL CHOICE, which was awkwardly placed to the
inside of OASIS SPUR, had to be taken outwards across the geldings heels to
obtain clear running.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on GOLDEN RABBIT
which revealed no apparent abnormality.
Jockey Koh, when questioned regarding DRAGON NINETYNINE leading,
stated that at its last start, the gelding was reluctant to stride out early and
settled in a rearward position and as such, he decided to ride DRAGON
NINEETYNINE aggressively in the early stages with a view to obtain a
midfield position. However, with no early pace, he found himself in the lead.
His explanation was noted.
