Commenced to overrace passing the 1200m and resented being restrained. Held up approaching the 400m until approaching the 250m.

Steward Comment

Began awkwardly. Steadied away from the heels of MOUNTBATTEN passing the 1000m. Held up rounding the home turn and shifted wider on the track to obtain clear running, and over the final 150m laid in and was unable to be fully tested in the run to the line.

Steward Comment

Raced 3 wide without cover in the early stages before obtaining the position outside the leader after passing the 800m. 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. Trainer C. Cousins was advised that the gelding will require a veterinary clearance prior to racing again.
