Jumped away awkwardly. When questioned regarding the improved performance today, trainer A. Coome stated that the gelding is still quite green but had improved in its work leading up to today’s event and he was not surprised with today’s result. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be suffering from heat stress.
Jockey T. Chambers stated that she was under no instructions today, but after jumping well was able to take up a more forward position and in her opinion the horse was better suited than racing further back in the field as it has in its previous starts. Trainer Mr J. Lewis confirmed that even though he offered no instructions, he was surprised to see the gelding race in a forward position, but given the results, would look to having the horse race in a similar pattern for the remainder of its preparation.
