Slow to begin. Laid in under pressure for the majority of the home straight and near the 100m Jockey J. Taylor was obliged to stop and straighten.

A post-race veterinary examination of the gelding which after leading the event throughout weakened in the home straight, revealed the gelding to be lame in the off hind leg. Connections were advised that a veterinary clearance would be required prior to the geldings next race start.
