Shortly after the start, EXCITING PROSPECT (E Chaves), FLYING MISSION (TH Koh), ELEGENT (S John) and BREAKING VAULTS (App Y Salim) were all tightened for room between DRAGON GOLD (App R Rueven), which shifted inwards and SUPER JOY (O Chavez), which shifted outwards and away from ZAC GALLANT (App CK Ng). As a result of this, FLYING MISSION, which blundered, and ELEGENT, both lost ground.

A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on DRAGON GOLD which revealed no apparent abnormality.

 RACE 2:  RESTRICTED MAIDEN - 1600M

Due to a delay resulting from the heavy downpour and lightning in the vicinity of the Race Course prior to Race 2, this race was put back thirty minutes and rescheduled to start at 1415Hrs.

The Stewards conducted an Inquiry into the start. It was established that the Mechanic in charge at the barriers, in the belief that the starting button was not reset correctly, attempted to reset it. This inadvertently activated the barriers opening. As the Starter had not effected the start and the Assistant Starter had not given the ‘All Clear’ behind the barrier, the Starter declared a false start and activated the false start system. As a result, WARSHIP (B Vorster), MAGSTOCK (M Rodd), SPIRIT SEEVEN (M Nunes) and SLAVONIC DANCE (A Da Silva) were all eased down. However, GURU-GURU (A Munro), MY TOUCH (TH Koh), SQUIRE BENTLEY (App MM Firdaus) and BORN A FIGHTER (CW Brown) all continued to complete the remainder of the course. After considering the matter, the Panel of Stewards acting under MRA Rule 114(4)(b) declared the race void.

 RACE 3:  CLASS 4, DIV 3 - 1200M
