Trainer HS Lim, when questioned regarding the
apparent reversal of form of MR DREYFUSS, advised the Stewards that
this horse had returned to reasonable form after a poor run in its
last race on 6 December 2015 when from an outside draw, this horse
was slow to begin and showed no pace. MR DREYFUSS had subsequently
improved in work, appears to prefer the shorter distance of todayís
race and from an inside barrier and with a 4kg claim allowance, App
J Daniel was advised to ride a forward race. Trainer HS Limís
attention was drawn to the rules regarding "in- and-out" running
(MRA Rule 117(3)) and was advised that if MR DREYFUSS was to show
inconsistent form in future, it may be suspended.
