Steward Comment

Connections advised that, from the wide alley, the gelding would be ridden further back in the field. The horse was ridden accordingly, settling at the rear of the field three wide with cover. Eased off the heels of GO DIXIE near the 1200m when that runner was steadied whilst racing to the inside of FRANCISCA.

Trainer J. Gilmore advised that the intention would be to have the gelding ridden forward and settle just off the pace. Settled midfield after runners to the outside pressed forward to obtain a position closer to the fence.
