EXPRESS (App P Haris) which lost ground.
Approaching the 1000M, CHINESE BABY shifted in despite the effort of its rider resulting in
GOLD STAR PRINCESS(App SU Lim) becoming inconvenienced.
Approaching the 350M, BINT WARD (App AM Aizat) had to be checked off the heels of

Approaching the 200M, RISE UP THE RANK (App WT Chung) whilst attempting a run
between ESPERANZA (Lou Ho) and KOBE TOP GUN (App CC Wong), shifted out abruptly
resulting in RISE UP THE RANK clipping the heels of KOBE TOP GUN and blundered.
Passing the 200M, Jockey M Ganeesh, the rider of BIG GALLANT, dropped his off side rein
Over the concluding stages, KIM WARRIOR continued to shift out and as a result,
ESPERANZA was again inconvenienced when racing to the outside and had to be eased over
the heels of KOBE TOP GUN.
CELAENO and SAGARS EXPRESS were both trapped racing wide throughout the event.
At the conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey K Eirwan, the rider of KIM WARRIOR, pleaded
guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that on the first occasion
at approximately the 250M in this race, he shifted out resulting in RISE UP THE RANK to
clip the heels of KOBE TOP GUN and blundered. On the second occasion over the concluding
stages, he allowed his horse to shift out resulting in BLACK COFFEE and AMPED being
taken wider on the track.

mitigating factors, submissions on penalty and his previous good riding record that he has not
been suspended for the last 12 months. Acting on the provisions of MRA Rule 48(5), the
Stewards deferred the commencement of Jockey K Eirwans suspension. He was suspended
