Began awkwardly and shifted in and bumped AKAGE. Inclined to lay in under pressure over the final 250m. Rider questioned re settling in a midfield position with cover, in contrast to its most recent pattern where it has settled in a forward position - explained intended to race forward however, when it began awkwardly and soon afterwards crossed by SAUNTER BOY elected to settle the gelding with cover. Added if the tempo was slow in the middle stages she would have improved around the field to lead but as pace was genuine at that stage elected to continue to race with cover. Explanation noted.

Rider questioned riding over final 400m where it appeared he had an opportunity to improve his position behind LOPE FOR JOYA. Stated mare only possesses a short sprint and for this reason instructed to hold the mare up and shift to the outside passing the 200m and make final sprint. Added he considered soon after straightening improving between LOPE FOR JOYA and ROUND MOUNTAIN GEM but felt it was a better option to shift to outside of AMICITIA to make final run.
