Steward Comment

When questioned regarding the horse’s seemingly improved performance, trainer G. Duncan advised that at its first run back from a spell at Warwick on 26 December 2017, the horse went back from its barrier and when attempting to improve approaching the home turn was forced wider by another runner and lost momentum. He added that given the circumstances of that occasion he was not overly disappointed in its performance, and that with the benefit of that run and being fitter for today’s event and with the small field, he gave the gelding a reasonable chance.

Trainer B. Andrew was afforded the opportunity to explain the horse’s improved performance. Mr Andrew advised that at its previous start the horse drew a wide gate and was trapped off the track on that occasion. He added that at its prior start to that the horse had had an interrupted preparation leading into that event and he was of the view that on that occasion the horse did not stretch out on the firm surface. He said that with the engagement of an apprentice for today’s event, with the horse carrying a lighter weight than at its previous runs, and also with the removal of the tongue tie,
