111CALIFORNIATOTALITY (H418)B AvdullaAfter the race, B Avdulla stated that his instructions were to endeavour to find cover on his mount. He said in the early stages he was able to hold a forward position, but runners to his outside did not show sufficient pace to cross his mount and as a result he was left racing outside the lead. He added in the Home Straight his mount came under pressure and near the 250 Metres was bumped on the hindquarters by TRADITION, became unbalanced and gave ground from that point. A veterinary inspection immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. Sent for sampling post-race.
122THE ABSOLUTE (H438)H BentleyWhen questioned regarding his riding in the early stages, H Bentley stated that from the outside barrier his instructions were to hold a forward position. He said after THE ABSOLUTE commenced well, his intention was to follow another runner across to sit outside the lead. He stated that when MISSION VOICE improved to his inside in the early stages, he had expected that runner to continue forward to race in the lead and he would position his mount to the outside of that runner. He added that when MISSION VOICE was unable to cross runners to his inside, this resulted in THE ABSOLUTE being obliged to race four wide and without cover and as a result near the 900 Metres he attempted to ride his mount forward to cross runners to his inside. He said when MISSION VOICE then held its position to his inside and he was not able to cross that runner, he then elected to desist from going forward, however, his mount was obliged to continue to race four wide and without cover before giving ground in Home Straight. Trainer K H Ting confirmed the instructions issued. Jockey Bentley agreed with the Stewards that in retrospect he would have been better suited by riding his mount in a more decisive manner in the early stages to cross to the front and take advantage of the good start that his mount obtained. A veterinary inspection immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer” which had previously been reported.
