Jockey S Bogenhuber questd re performance. Instructed to obtain a position with cover, commenced to over-race and was inclined to lay out approaching and rounding home turn. Disappointed in performance and would benefit benefit from blinkers being removed. A post-race vet exam revealed poor post-race recovery and also in season. Mr Sexton expressed his disappointment in performance and undertook to advise stewards of any abnormalities post race.

Approaching the 1300m was heavily bumped and lost ground when tightened for room between STARBUSTER and SGURR MOR both of which shifted ground. At a subsequent inquiry it was established that the racing manners of BALERION contributed significantly to this incident and as such no action was taken against any one rider. Shortly thereafter when obliged to settle behind STARBUSTER, raced fiercely until a point passing the 800m.

Forced wider on track leaving 800m. Raced 3 wide without cover for remainder of event. When questd as to performance Jockey A Chau stated the gelding was under pressure passing the 700m and proved disappointing. Jockey Chau was unable to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance. A post-race vet. exam revealed no abnormalities. Stable representative M Sharpe was of opinion that the gelding may be better suited when ridden less aggressively early and may be better suited on a bigger track. Ms Sharpe undertook to advise stewards of any abnormalities that may come to light.

Shortly after the start, the saddle on EXCELAMOUR shifted back and the mare attempted to buck placing its rider at a significant disadvantage. A short distance later, EXCELAMOUR was eased out of the race near the 900m when Jockey R Plumb was of the belief the mare was stepping short behind. A post-race veterinary examination revealed EXCELAMOUR to be lame in the off hind leg. Connections were advised that they must obtain a veterinary clearance prior to the mares next race start.
