When asked to comment on the tactics adopted, jockey S. Cormack advised that he rode the gelding as per his instructions, which were to be in a forward position and lead if possible, which is consistent with its usual racing pattern. He added that having ridden the gelding at its most recent starts, and being advised by the trainer that the gelding resents being restrained once in a comfortable rhythm, he was satisfied to allow the gelding to race in that pattern and eventually crossed DOMINICA ROSE passing the 900m.

After racing in a forward position for the majority, the mare commenced to weaken after passing the 500m and finished tailed off. A post-race veterinary examination of the mare failed to reveal any apparent abnormalities. Co-trainers B. & D. Guy advised that in light of today’s performance, it is now their intention to retire the mare to stud.

After racing in a forward position, commenced to weaken rounding the home turn and proved disappointing. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be stepping short in its off hind.

Raced 3 wide without cover in the early stages before striding forward to obtain the position outside the leader passing the 700m. When asked to comment on the performance, trainer D. Vandyke advised that the mare was second up today and had improved from its first run. He added that the mare’s second up record is quite good, and with the step up in distance today and its improved fitness, he had expected a forward showing today. Stewards noted the explanation.
