RACE 4 (R878)         OPEN NOVICE (SW) – 1200M (SHORT COURSE A)

At the conclusion of an inquiry, App AM Aizat, the rider of HALO BRIGHT, in the presence of his Master, Trainer F Maynard, pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that at about the 1200M, he moved across DAHEES when not sufficiently clear, causing that horse to be carried inwards towards CHARLIES MISSILE which in turn was carried onto TILSWORTH JACOBI (J Low), which was severely checked.

In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration App AM Aizat’s guilty plea, mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. Acting on the provisions of MRA Rule 48(5), the Stewards deferred the commencement of App AM Aizat’s suspension. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of four (4) Malaysian race days with effect from 23 July 2018 and to expire on 5 August 2018, both dates inclusive. He was advised of his Right of Appeal (5:45pm).
