EQUALLY OPTIMISTIC (App F Yusoff) was slowly away.
EPIC ENCOUNTER (App SU Lim) was slow into stride.
Near the 800M, EQUALLY OPTIMISTIC and EPIC ENCOUNTER steadied when
crowded for room between UNCLE GLORY (S Sani) which rolled outwards and
AUSSIE SON (Y Aify) which rolled inwards.
Near the 200M, EQUALLY OPTIMISTIC, which was improving, had to steady off the
heels of YOYO (Lou Ho) which commenced to give ground.
Post-race veterinary examinations of COFFEESHOP GOSSIP (App S Rosmizan), JUST
BLESSED (App Z Khairil), YOUNG GUN (I Azhar), AUSSIE SON and SPEED MAN
(J Shankar) revealed no obvious abnormality.
When questioned regarding SPEED MAN missing the start, Jockey J Shankar stated that
when he took the blind-fold off SPEED MAN, his mount became fractious in the gate
and as such, he requested a handler to hold its tail. He said that as the gates opened, his
mount jumped awkwardly with its head up, causing him to become unbalanced in the
saddle and as a result, lost considerable ground.
SPEED MAN, which was fractious and lost considerable ground at the start, will be
required to pass two (2) starting stall tests at weekly intervals after one month embargo
before being declared to race again.
