When asked to comment on the performance, Jockey R. Plumb stated that after settling in a trailing position towards the rear, the gelding raced a little keenly in the early stages and then when shifted 3 wide with cover to improve passing the 600m, was afforded every opportunity to finish the race off. He further added that once in the home straight, when placed under pressure, the gelding proved a little disappointing and in his opinion may improve with the run. A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.

When asked to comment on the performance, Jockey R. Plumb stated that the gelding was obliged to race in a forward position in the early and middle stages of the event and failed to settle at that point of the race. When placed under pressure leaving the 600m, the gelding proved disappointing and in his opinion may have come to the end of its current preparation. Stable representative for Trainer R. Heathcote advised that he would now consider whether to continue with the geldings current campaign.

After passing the 600m was inclined to lay out and then rounding the home turn hung out, placing its rider at a distinct disadvantage. In the home straight proved difficult to ride out.
