A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on REAL HERO which revealed no apparent abnormality.

Trainer L Khoo, when questioned regarding the apparent improved performance of MASTER BANGER, stated that the gelding had failed previously when racing on the Turf Track over longer distances earlier in his preparation. Since realizing MASTER BANGER would be better suited to racing over shorter distances, he had kept gelding fresh in an effort to improve MASTER BANGER.
