After being bumped by GRATSIE passing the 1200m, commenced to overrace and was allowed to stride forward to obtain a position outside the leader passing the 1100m. After racing in a forward position, commenced to weaken after passing the 400m and finished a distant last. A post-race veterinary examination revealed that the gelding had bled from both nostrils. As this was the second occasion on which the horse has bled it will now incur a lifetime bar from racing.

A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be exhibiting signs of mild heat stress. Trainer S. Hardy was advised that a warning will be placed on the gelding’s racing manners. Mr. Hardy advised Stewards that he may now experiment with some gear changes for the horse’s future starts.

Apprentice N. Keal reported that he desisted from pressuring his mount over the final 200m as he felt that something may have been amiss with the filly. A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any apparent abnormalities.

Became loose in the tie up stall area prior to entering the enclosure before being recaptured. The gelding underwent a veterinary examination upon arriving at the barriers and was cleared to start. Momentarily crowded for room approaching the 400m when MISHANI BLOSSOM shifted out before being corrected by its rider, and shortly after became awkwardly placed at the heels of VERTICAL which laid in slightly and, as a result, THE TYLER clipped that runner’s heels and blundered.
