BERNIN LOOSE - A post-race veterinary examination of the gelding did not reveal any abnormalities.

He added that being second-up from a spell and racing over 1300 metres may have been detrimental to today's performance, and taking into account the horse's racing pattern, it may be better suited in races over a shorter distance.
