GENERAL
 
Jockeys S. Wiseman and B. Appo’s explanations for being dually engaged in Race 4 were accepted, however both were reminded of their obligations under AR127(1).
 
BIMBIMBI BARB (Race 1) and PETITE ELLE (Race 3), which competed at Emerald on 2 May, were examined by the veterinary official and passed fit to start.
 
As M. Barnham was not riding due to illness, riding replacements were made as per the Stewards Race Day Summary. Jockey Barnham will require a medical clearance prior to resuming riding.
 
Race 1: XXXX GOLD MAIDEN H'CAP – 1050M
 
ASK NINO – Slow to begin. Momentarily held up for clear running on entering the home straight. Rider N. Seymour pleaded guilty to an excessive use of the whip breach in that he used it 9 times prior to the 100m and 11 times in total. Jockey N. Seymour was fined $100.
 
ENCUMBRANCE – Hampered on jumping away. Laid out under pressure in the straight.
 
TICKET KEEPER – Hampered on jumping away. When questioned regarding the horse settling at the rear of the field in today’s event and also his vigour when entering the home straight, jockey M. Haley stated that he was instructed to lead in today’s event but after failing to muster early speed was trapped wide and as such he elected to restrain in an attempt to find cover. He added that his mount hung in throughout the event and when entering the home straight, when attempting to shift wider around the heels of SCARY SPICE, proved difficult to ride out and as such he could not place his mount under full pressure at any stage in the straight. When questioned, trainer J. Campeao confirmed the instructions issued to jockey M. Haley but added that he was surprised to see TICKET KEEPER racing so far back. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.  Stewards adjourned the inquiry to a later date to examine betting records and to view the race videos of the horse’s previous starts.
 
BITTERGREYMAGIC – Laid in under pressure in the straight.

SCARY SPICE – Hampered on jumping away. Raced wide throughout. Laid in under pressure over the concluding stages.
 
TATACHILLA – Raced wide throughout. Hung in when placed under pressure in the home straight, placing its rider at a disadvantage. Trainer J.
