BUSH BELLA – Contacted at the start.
WINSDOR CASTLE – Jockey M. Abe was permitted to ride 2kg overweight as there were no other riders available and was fined $100 under AR120(b). Jumped outwards contacting another runner and raced ungenerously throughout. Jockey M. Abe was at a loss to explain the poor performance of the gelding and a post-race veterinary inspection showed no abnormalities.

HUSSON’S SHOUT – Travelled wide for much of the event.

MISTRESS OF MONEY was fractious in the barrier prior to jumping and reared. After being removed from the barrier to be inspected the gates of the barriers opened effecting a false start.
IMPLICATE (R. Hancock) and MISS MARLO (M.Abe) were unable to be restrained and completed the course. FLORIDA ROAD (J. Lee-Brand) was reasonably restrained and completed the course under a strong hold. All runners underwent a veterinary inspection before being able to be reloaded. IMPLICATE and MISS MARLO were late scratchings at 2.54pm on veterinary advice.
