Leaving the 100m attempted to jump a discoloured patch of grass. Jockey G. Kliese advised stewards that he was of the opinion that something may have gone amiss with the gelding and consequently he was reluctant to place the horse under pressure over the concluding stages. The explanation was noted.

Slow to begin. Raced wide until near the 1200m when it improved forward. When questioned regarding the seemingly disappointing peformance, Jockey C. Jokic said that her moount raced keenly in the early and middle stages and she was of the opinion that the gelding may have got its tongue over the bit. Connections advised stewards that it is now their intention to make a gear change prior to its next race start by adding a tongue-tie to its approved gear.

Slow to begin. Stewards questioned Jockey G. Kliese regarding the below market expectations performance.
