Slow to begin. When asked to explain the performance, Jockey G. Colless advised that the mare settled in a rearward position and never really travelled at any stage throughout the event. He added when placed under pressure approaching the home turn, failed to respond to his riding and in the home straight proved very disappointing. A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.

Steward Comment

After racing in the lead for the majority of the event, commenced to weaken after passing the 400m and in the home straight the rider desisted from pressuring his mount as he was of the opinion something may have been amiss with the filly. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the filly to be exhibiting a slow post-race recovery.
