ONE FOR ALL (Z Khairil) commenced to lay in under the whip from the 300M until at about the 200M, when he had to check off the heels of HOFFMAN and shifted out across the heels of ASHQAR to obtain clear running and in doing so, took SIR HENRY and OVER LIMITS (HK Cheng) wider on the track.  The Panel of Stewards showed Jockey Z Khairil the vision of the incident and advised to exercise greater care under similar circumstances in future.

Jockey R Rueven, the rider of ASHQAR reported that his mount was not striding out freely.  A post-race veterinary examination of ASHQAR revealed no obvious abnormality.
