Resented the sand kick back and raced ungenerously when the rider attempted to settle the horse behind other runners between the 700m and the 400m. Rider reported that when able to place the horse in clear running the gelding improved quickly and was doing its best work over the concluding stages.

Blundered on jumping away and when behind other runners resented the sand kick back. Trainer G Clem reported that following the event it was discovered that the horse had returned to scale with a bubble cheeker caught under the off fore hoof, which in his opinion had a detrimental effect on the horses performance.
