Change of tactics. Connections advised that the horse would be ridden further back in the field if circumstances permit. The horse was ridden accordingly. When questioned regarding the seemingly improved performance, trainer J. Zielke explained that the gelding did not appreciate racing in full-cup blinkers and was better suited to wearing a visor. He added also that the dramatic step up in distance was a major contributing factor in the improved performance. The explanation was noted.

When questioned regarding the performance, jockey R.

He added that as he had some concerns that the gelding may be suffering from a breathing issue he was reluctant to pressure his mount over the concluding stages. Post race the veterinary examination recommended the gelding under an endoscopic examination. Trainer M. Dunn expressed his disappointment in the performance and advised that he would have the horse undergo an endoscopic examin

The start was delayed when the horse broke through the front of the barriers and cantered for a short distance before being recaptured by the clerk and returned to the barriers. The horse was examined by the veterinary surgeon and cleared to take its place in the field. Rider T. Harrison reported that as the gelding was having its first race start it will take a fitness benefit from todays event.
