The Stewards questioned App SU Lim, the rider of CONQUISTADOR, and Trainer PS
Kumaran, the Trainer of CONQUISTADOR as to the racing tactics adopted on that gelding in
this race. App SU Lim confirmed his instructions were to be handy to midfield which were
confirmed by the Stewards from the Trainers Instruction Form. He stated that after slightly
rearing at the start, he urged the gelding forward, however, it commenced to race fiercely
despite his efforts to restrain and continued to race fiercely throughout the event whilst in the
leading position. CONQUISTADOR commenced to give ground over the final 300M. Trainer

SU Lim reported after the race that CONQUISTADOR was making respiratory noises. A post-
race veterinary examination of CONQUISTADOR revealed no significant finding.
