Stewards inquired into the tactics adopted and the performance of FRAAR JESTER. Jockey A.

He said that when runners to his inside were pressured to take up a forward position, rather than be caught wide he restrained his mount to take up a position at the rear of the field. Jockey Coome added that he maintained an inside run in the straight and the filly found the line well. Trainer Mr T. Cook confirmed the instructions and said that he was satisfied with the ride. He said further that he would intend to start the filly at Rockhampton on 31st December. The explanations were noted. A review of lay bets on the horse was reviewed with no anomalies observed.
