Emergency acceptor NINETYFIVE ROCKET was withdrawn due to a capacity field.
HANG TUAH, which was down 19kgs in body weight since its last run, was checked by
the Club Veterinary Surgeon prior to the race and was passed fit to start.
Light rain fell prior to and during the running of this race.
At the start, GOOD MEANING (App F Yusoff) blundered badly.
At approximately the 400M, TRACK MAC (App CC Wong) shifted in when struck with
the whip and continued to do so for some distance. App CC Wong, the rider of TRACK
MAC was warned and told to stop and straighten his mount more quickly in future.
At approximately the 350M, LUCK ALOT shifted in under pressure for some distance
and App I Amirul, the rider of LUCK ALOT was warned and told to stop and straighten
his mount more quickly than he did on this occasion.
On pulling-up, DEPUTY LAW (M Yusri) and TRACK MAC which was following,
clipped its heels, stumbled and App CC Wong became unbalanced in his saddle.
The Club Veterinary Surgeon reported that MARYLEBONE PARK (App M Hanif)
returned having cast its near hind plate.
App S Shafrizal, the rider of BOSS CAT reported that his mount was not striding out
freely. A post-race veterinary examination revealed that the gelding had returned lame
off fore and having cast its off fore plate. BOSS CAT will be required to pass a test
(1000m/vet) before being declared to race again.
Post-race veterinary examinations of FLY KITTY FLY (Lou Ho), ASTRONAUT MAN
(KT Cheng), SUBURBAN SECRET (HS Gill) and CHINESE STREET (J De Souza)
revealed no obvious abnormality. SUBURBAN SECRET was impounded.
After the running of this race, the state of track was downgraded to Yielding.
The Stewards questioned Jockey HS Gill, the rider of SUBURBAN SECRET (fav.) who
explained that the horse jumped well, managed to race in a comfortable position forward.
He said that he was able to get the horse 6th position on the rail, about two lengths from
the leaders, but when placed under pressure in the straight, the horse failed to respond.
In his opinion, SUBURBAN SECRET was disappointing but may be feeling the effects
of being its first start since December 2014.
Trainer PK Leong confirmed that he instructed Jockey HS Gill to get a good jump, drive
the horse forward and travel where comfortable. He thought that the horse would run
better today than what it did, but the horse was disappointing. He feels that being its first
run after a long spell, the horse may not have been as forward in its preparations as he has
trialed well and should benefit from todays run. His explanation was noted.
