马来西亚 （雪兰莪） - 13/02/2016
场地：良好 夺标时速： 1:29.50
RACE 4 (R223) CLASS 5 1500M (LONG COURSE A)
JET COSMO (App P Deneskumar) was fractious in the barrier and jumped awkwardly.
FULL MEANING (Lou Ho) jumped awkwardly and threw its head in the air.
COMONBABY (H Bukhari) was inconvenienced shortly after the start as a result of CLAIM
(R Burnett) jumping inwards and FLY HIGH (App SU Lim) jumping outwards.
Approaching the 1000M, COMONBABY had a tendency to over-race, had to be eased off the
heels of the leader, ABSOLUTE MAVERICK (S Salee) and as a result, shifted inwards and
inconvenienced MR ABRACADABRA (J Shankar). COMONBABY continued to race
fiercely in the early and middle stages. Jockey J Shankar was cautioned in relation to the
manner in which he used his right elbow in this incident.
Leaving the 500M, FULL MEANING was held up for a clear run behind runners in front and
failed to get a clear run until the 100M where he had to shift to the outside of LECTERN (J De
Souza) to gain clear running.
Entering the front straight in the run to the finish, LOYALTY GALA shifted out under
pressure resulting in GRAND SHOW (SS Vanan) having to be eased by its rider and shifted in
to gain clear running.
Over the final stages of the event, FLY HIGH (App SU Lim) shifted out under pressure when
being struck with the whip resulting in CLAIM becoming tightened for room when racing on
the inside of JET COSMO, and LECTERN losing its rightful position. The Steward did not
take any action on App SU Lim as CLAIM had contributed by shifting in slightly.
The Stewards issued Jockey H Bukhari, the rider of COMONBABY, a reprimand in relation
to his whip use in the run to the finish as it was borderline whether he was striking the gelding
forward of the shoulder.
