RACE 2 (R559) CLASS 4 1400M RIVERSDALE HANDICAP
MALS DAD (M Ganeesh) was restless in the barrier, jumped awkwardly at the start and
was a little slow to begin.
COCONUT (S Salee) hesitated at the start, was a little slow to begin and showed no early

TRAVERTINE (R Jasmin) was caught three wide on the turn at the 800M.

M Zairi, when questioned regarding his ride in the home straight, advised the Stewards
that his horse was travelling well entering the home straight but was held up on the heels
of WARN YOU MAN and had to switch outwards. The Stewards advised Jockey M
Zairi that they were not entirely happy with his ride as in their opinion, he should have
switched to the inside of WARN YOU MAN for a clear run as soon as he entered the
home straight instead of hesitating, which allowed TRAVERTINE to take the run.
Jockey M Zairi was warned that he would be expected to ride his horses with more
initiative and aggression in future.
Approaching the 100M mark, POLO STAR (App AK Lim) shifted inwards away from
the whip and at approximately the 50M mark, made contact with SPEED FLYING (App
Z Khairil). App AK Lim, in the presence of his Master, Trainer W Lim, was shown the
video replay and warned that he should make more attempt to keep his horses on a
straight course in future.
Post-race veterinary examinations of TRAVERTINE and WARN YOU MAN revealed
no obvious abnormality. TRAVERTINE was impounded for further veterinary and
