The start was delayed when the mare proved difficult to load. Jockey L Cheshire reported at scale that she noticed that its tongue was over the bit and that she recommended to connections to experiment with a tongue tie or a tongue control bit before the mare’s next start. She added further that this may have contributed to the mare not running out a strong 1400m today. Trainer E Forrester reported to Stewards that the mare had returned after the race with a laceration to the near side hip and also with its tongue over the bit.

Fractious in the barriers. Jockey J Morris reported to Stewards that it was not his intention to settle as far forward, however, after beginning well he did not have to overly pressure his mount to obtain a forward position and therefore elected to race more forward than anticipated. He added that the mare was disappointing in the home straight.

Blundered at start. Questioned re tactics. Rider stated instructions were to take up a forward position. After travelling a short distance after start it was evident to him he would be unable to obtain a position with cover. Therefore when racing wide he elected to stride forward to comply with instructions. When striding forward he was of view runners to his inside were looking to improve and he made decision to improve quickly to obtain outright lead.

Forced wider on the track near the 900m and then commenced to over-race for a short distance. When questioned as to the performance, Jockey M McGuren explained that after being unable to obtain cover near the 800m, he was forced wider on the track and as a result raced wide for the remainder of the event. He added that despite this the gelding in his opinion still proved disappointing.

Commenced to over-race approaching the 1500m and made the first turn awkwardly. When questioned as to the disappointing performance, Jockey R Plumb stated that after travelling comfortably for the majority of the race, the gelding was then reluctant to improve when racing between runners before commencing to weaken rounding the home turn. He also added that the gelding may have been accidentally struck over the head by another rider’s whip. As he was of the view that something may have been amiss with the gelding he did not apply any more pressure to the gelding in the home straight.

Start was delayed when the gelding was reluctant to load. When questioned as to the performance Jockey G Goold stated that after obtaining a position one off the fence behind the leaders, it commenced to over-race and had to be restrained when the pace of the race steadied and as a result from that point failed to travel comfortably. He added that the gelding is better suited when racing over further distances and able to obtain the lead and dictate the speed of the race on his own terms. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be making an abnormal respiratory noise.
