MAHA (M Suhaimi) jumped awkwardly.
Racing towards the 800M, PRINCE NANO (App S Zulfikri) left a trailing position towards
the rear of the field and commenced a 4-wide run before gaining a position outside the leader
at the 500M.
Making the turn into the front straight, SAGARS EXPRESS (App R Fakruddin) shifted
outwards to gain a clear run and as a result, CELAENO (App M Hanif) was inconvenienced
and had to be eased of its heels. App R Fakruddin was shown the official patrol film of the
incident and reminded of his obligation to exercise greater care when shifting ground under
similar circumstances in future.
DESERT SOUL (App WK Lee) had a tendency to lay inwards over the final 200M and as a

The Stewards questioned Jockey J Low and Trainer R Lines into the performance of the
favourite, BULL AND BEAR. Jockey J Low reported that he had a favourable run throughout
the race and when he placed the gelding under pressure at the 400M, it failed to respond to his
riding and was only one-paced despite his vigour.
Trainer R Lines was at a lost to explain the disappointing performance of BULL AND BEAR
and expected a forward showing. He stated that the horse has worked well throughout the
week and was kept fresh, and he could not offer any further explanation.
The Stewards informed Trainer R Lines to report back to the Stewards if there is anything
amiss with the gelding on returning to his stable. Their explanations were noted for future
reference. A post-race veterinary examination of BULL AND BEAR revealed that it was
exhibiting signs of upper respiratory tract abnormality and as such will be required to undergo
a veterinary examination at rest before being declared to race again.
