Steward Comment

When questioned by Stewards regarding the below market expectation performance, Apprentice B. Nothdurft advised that the filly travelled in a favourable position during the race, however when placed under pressure it failed to quicken as he had expected and proved disappointing. Trainer N. McCall also expressed disappointment in the performance of the filly which, in her opinion, failed to run out the 1400m today. She added that in light of this performance she will now consider the horse’s future in her stable.

When questioned by Stewards regarding his riding over the concluding stages, jockey J. King advised that he desisted from riding his mount out to the conclusion of the race as he felt that there may have been something amiss with the gelding. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be lame in the near fore leg. The stable representative for Trainer N. King was advised that the horse would require a veterinary clearance prior to its next race start.

Steward Comment

SHOW A FLICK – When questioned by Stewards regarding the improved performance, Trainer P. Hill advised that the gelding was having its fourth run back from a spell today and, as it is a genuine middle distance horse, it was suited by the 2000m of today’s race. He added that whilst its prior start was also over a middle distance, the gelding was caught wide for the duration on that occasion and, as a consequence, weakened over the concluding stages. Mr. Hill went on to say that, in his opinion, the soft racing surface was also to the gelding’s advantage today. Stewards noted the explanation.
