FOLLOW-UP(S) – SATURDAY, 7 MAY 2022

FOLLOW-UP(S) – SUNDAY, 8 MAY 2022
Trainer HY Cheng advised that EL MACHO (eighth) was identified to have back pain under the saddle region post-race. It was his intention to give the gelding a week off before recommencing training.
When questioned, Trainer HS Lim advised that AGUERO JR (seventh) transited poorly to KL and had lost considerable weight. On returning to his stable, he believed that this had taken the toll on the gelding and it was his intention not to start the gelding for 3 weeks.
Trainer HS Lim advised that HAZARD (eighth) had pulled up well and could only suggest that the interference the gelding had received near the 700M (See Stewards’ Report) had contributed to its poor performance. It was his intention to continue the gelding’s training regime.
Trainer R Lines advised that POWERFUL FIGHTER (eighth) had pulled up well, however, had shown no customary early pace and as such, was found wanting in the straight. It was his intention to continue with the gelding’s training regime and seek a lesser class race for his next start.
