PISCES JET (App KC Wong) became restless in the barrier and kicked the back gate
prior to the start.
LIMS MIRAGE (Lou Ho) jumped awkwardly outwards at the start.
Shortly after the start, RUNFORIT (S Ruzaini) lost ground after clipping the heels of
SOCOTRA (M Yusri) when being taken outwards by FLIGHT OFTHE SAKER (App
AM Aizat) which received some pressure from PISCES JET which jumped awkwardly
Rounding the turn at about the 1400M, RUNFORIT steadied off the heels of SUPER
CROWN (SS Vanan) which rolled inwards.
Approaching the 200M mark, KUANTAN HILL (App M Sathiaa) laid inwards away
from the whip. At about the same time, MR PAULANDRE (J De Souza) commenced to
drift outwards under pressure into the whip.
In the concluding stages, KUANTAN HILL was carried outwards on the outside of MR
PAULANDRE which continued to drift outwards away from the whip. As Jockey J De
Souza, the rider of MR PAULANDRE, had left the course, he will be shown the video
replay and will be warned to make more attempt to keep his horses on a straight course in
future. Furthermore, he will be questioned regarding the fact that he left the course
before the prescribed time after his last riding engagement (MRA Rule 44.2).
The Veterinary Surgeon reported that RUNFORIT returned lame off fore and as such,
will be required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before being declared to race again. The
gelding was Impounded for further veterinary and analytical examination.
A post-race veterinary examination of LIMS MIRAGE revealed no obvious abnormality.
Trainer LN Danis who was not on course, will be questioned regarding the apparent
improved performance of MR PAULANDRE.
