News in brief
MOONLIGHT UNLUCKY: Lincoln Moonlight looked unlucky not to win at Kranji on Sunday night after copping a check 700 metres from home when the leader Morpheus slowed. He lost several lengths in the incident but recovered bravely, powering home late for third when clear. Stewards warned Nooresh Juglall that slowing the tempo to a degree where riders were left endangered would not be condoned.
CITY FEELING LEG: Lincoln City, running out of his grade, ran last in Singapore on Sunday. He lost ground with an awkward beginning then jockey Matthew Poon reported he was very one-paced throughout and could not improve. A vet exam revealed the horse was not striding out freely in his off foreleg.
SNOTTY NOSE: Lincoln Farms’ owned Vasari had an excuse for running last behind former Kiwi Italian Delight in his first start at Menangle last week. He pulled up with a snotty nose and has been put on a course of antibiotics.
GIRL TOO KEEN: A post race vet exam found nothing amiss with Lincoln’s Girl after her disappointing run at Cambridge. After trailing early, she was shuffled four deep and failed to run on, finishing at the rear, beaten 14.4 lengths. Deriver Zachary Butcher advised the filly raced keenly in the middle stages.
RUPERT UNBEATEN IN OZ: Rupert Of Lincoln made it two from two since being sold to Australia when he scored at Swan Hill in Victoria. His time of 2:06.8 for the mobile 1750 metres represented a mile rate of 1:56.6.
GAL HAD NO FAVOURS: Lincoln’s Gal ran only eighth at Otaki but had no favours. She began awkwardly, settling back, then raced in restricted room passing the 100 metres when runners either side shifted ground.
BUSH WHACKED HIMSELF: Trainer Stephen Marsh late scratched Bush Whacked from New Plymouth when he arrived in poor condition after kicking the float all the way down from Cambridge. The horse was bruised and sore in behind.
