Held up for a short distance passing the home turn.
Slow to begin. Shortly after the start laid in away from ENCHANTINGLY and in doing so was bumped on its hind quarters by SPURIOUS.
Began awkwardly. After being caught wide approaching the first turn allowed to stride forward to obtain a position closer to the rail passing the 1300m. After passing the 300m when placed under pressure laid in before being corrected by its rider. Then over the final 100m when placed under pressure laid out.
Passing the 400m commenced to lay in and continued to lay in for the remainder proving difficult for its rider to fully test his mount.
Began awkwardly. Approaching the 900m improved onto the heels of NEVER LOSE FAITH and had to be steadied.
After being caught four wide early stages allowed to stride forward to obtain the lead passing the 1100m. After passing the 300m when placed under pressure commenced to weaken and finished at the rear of the field. Rider explained gelding travelled well for majority but when placed under pressure failed to respond. Vetted - minor laceration near fore knee
