Zaki and Shafrizal suspended for careless riding

Zaki pleaded guilty to careless riding in that approaching the 700m mark in the opening race on Sunday, he permitted his mount Pure White to shift outwards, tightening the running of Parker. This resulted in Parker being checked.

Shafrizal permitted his mount Good News to shift inwards approaching the 1,000m mark in Race 8, severely crowding Dutrow, who was checked, and also tightened Solaris Spectrum's runnig.
