After arriving at the barrier, JOHNNY KONGOS (D David) and VOLCANO (I
Saifudin) had their saddles readjusted.
As the start was effected, BLACK SWAN (K AIsisuhairi)) reared on jumping,
resulting in its rider losing his off-side stirrup iron and losing considerable
ground. Jockey K AIsisuhairi then regained his stirrup iron approximately
50m after the start. Subsequent to the race, after reviewing the films and
prior to the All Clear being given, the Stewards were of the opinion that
BLACK SWAN was not denied a fair start and BLACK SWAN was declared a
runner. BLACK SWAN will be required to pass one starting stall test prior to
being declared to race again in terms of MRA Rule 78(2).
RISING STAR (App WS Chan) and VOYAGER (S John) bumped shortly after
VOLCANO raced keenly in the early stages.
RISING STAR raced wide throughout.
VOYAGER was held up and unable to improve between the 600m and the
500m. VOYAGER then checked near the 500m when racing to the inside of
DAYUAN (A Da Silva). An Inquiry into this incident will be held at a date to
Making the turn into the straight, HOFFMAN (G Boss) was held up on the
heels of VOLCANO.
Approaching the 300m, VOYAGER, which had been taken to the inside of
DAYUAN, had to be eased when DOUBLE JEOPARDY (App CK Ng) improved to
the inside. This resulted in DOUBLE JEOPARDY rolling inwards and making
contact with BRILLIANT STAR (S Anandan), which in turn had to be eased.
JOHNNY KONGOS laid outwards passing the 200m.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on HOFFMAN which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
