At the conclusion of an Inquiry today (27th December 2015) at the Penang Turf Club,

a clear run on the inside of ABSOLUTE MAVERICK (S Thai Yang) when there was an
opportunity, and when it was reasonable, to do so.

CK Tans points of mitigation and his riding record. Jockey CK Tan was suspended from
riding in races for a period of two (2) months. Acting on the provisions of MRA Rule
48(5), the Stewards deferred the commencement of Jockey CK Tans suspension to take
effect from Monday, 4th January 2016 and to expire on Thursday, 3rd March 2016, both
days inclusive. He was advised of his Right of Appeal (1.10 pm).

26TH DECEMBER 2015, 2ND DAY, PENANG YANG DI-PERTUA NEGERI GOLD
CUP MEETING 2015
Trainer KF Wong, when questioned about the apparent reversal of form of GOOD GIFT,
advised the Stewards that GOOD GIFT had appeared to improve in this run, however, he
felt that the field in the race on 26th December 2015 was very weak and his instructions,
as usual, were to sit mid-field, 3rd to 4th from the pace. However, from barrier 1, this
horse had a good jump and found himself in front, on the pace. In its previous outing on
6th December 2015 in Soft going, GOOD GIFT was drawn on the extreme outside and
was unable to race mid-field. Trainer KF Wongs explanation was noted and his
attention was drawn to the rules regarding in- and-out running (MRA Rule 117(3)). He
was informed that should GOOD GIFT prove to be inconsistent in its performance in
future, it may be suspended.
