FIGHT TO VICTORY
After arriving at the barrier, its saddle was readjusted.
Bumped with THUNDER DRAGON on jumping.
Rider, when questioned regarding the gelding performing below market expectation, stated that the gelding travelled comfortably in the backstraight, however, started to race like a tired horse when he commenced to place it under pressure from the 600m. He further added that gelding was not striding out freely. Impounded for routine veterinary and analytical examination. The Veterinary Surgeon reported no apparent abnormality.
CATCH THE TIGER
Checked passing the 1100m.
Raced wide without cover.
Rider reported that his instructions were to try and obtain a forward position, however, due to its wide barrier, and its lack of early speed, the gelding was caught wide in a midfield position. He added that thereafter, the gelding was one-paced and failed to finish off the race as expected. A subsequent veterinary examination revealed no apparent abnormality.
Bumped by STORM TO WIN at the start.
Jumped outwards at the start and bumped STORM TO WIN out onto BLACK ORCHID. Raced keenly in the early and middle stages and was then bumped on the hindquarters near the 950m by CATCH THE TIGER, which shifted outwards after having to be checked off the heels of THE JEWELLER.
Prior to the running of Race 2, Trainer S Gray advised the Stewards that his instructions to the rider, as it got too far back at its last start, will endeavour to ride closer with some cover with the step up in distance and being on the E Course.
Settled midfield, however, was caught wide without cover.
Rider, when questioned regarding the gelding performing below market expectation, stated that he was instructed to ride the gelding more forward than its first start, however, from a wide barrier, he was caught wide when attempting to ride to these instructions. He added that RUNMINDERBINDERRUN was under pressure from the 600m and weakened in the run to the line. His explanation was noted. A subsequent veterinary examination revealed no apparent abnormality.

Slightly slow to begin.
Checked passing the 1100m.

SPIRIT OF D'WIND
Course Scratching - maximum field
Z Zuriman, the rider of LADY BOSS, pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that passing the 1100m, he permitted his mount to shift inwards, when insufficiently clear of THUNDER DRAGON (E Aslam), resulting in that horse being taken inwards, tightening the running of THE JEWELLER (C Grylls), which had to be checked and CATCH THE TIGER (J Powell), which was following, also had to be checked. When deciding on penalty, the Stewards took into account his record, guilty plea and the degree of interference and carelessness. Jockey Zuriman was suspended from riding in races with effect from Wednesday, 21 November 2018 to Sunday, 02 December 2018 both dates inclusive (three Singapore Race Days) and was advised of his Right of Appeal.
