RACING TALENT (G Boss) jumped inwards at the start making contact with
LION WAVE (App S Shafrizal).
App CC Wong, the rider of JOY AND HAPPY, reported that his saddle shifted
forward approximately 200m after the start placing him at a disadvantage
throughout. This was subsequently confirmed by the Veterinary Surgeon
that JOY AND HAPPY had returned with its saddle having shifted forward.
Approaching the 1000m, GREENBACK (K AIsisuhairi) rolled inwards and
away from LUCKY COIN (I Azhar) and in so doing, GREENBACK then had to

GOOD LUCKY (O Placais), which raced poorly, will be required to pass a
1000m gallop trial and veterinary examination prior to being declared to race
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on KING OF THIEVES
which revealed no apparent abnormality.
