difficult run and he was of the view that the fact that it raced wide was a
telling factor in its finishing position. He indicated that he may give the
horse one more start before considering whether to continue with its
preparation. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the horse to have a
slow post-race recovery, indicative of a tough run.
