Tightened for room and had to be checked passing the 400m when KINGSTON CAUSEWAY laid in and away from SIR EARLSTOUN, which shifted in. At a subsequent inquiry stewards could not apportion blame for the incident to any one rider due to the racing manners of KINGSTON CAUSEWAY and therefore took no further action.

The horse raced in bar plates, which was a late gear change approved by stewards after a request from trainer A. Willick yesterday. A public announcement was made to this effect.

Began awkwardly and shifted out. Inclined to overrace and lay out slightly when leading in the early and middle stages. Hug out in the home straight, causing its rider to stop riding on a number of occasions. M. Cahill dropped his whip near the 250m. M. Cahill reported that his mount was under pressure whilst hanging out rounding the home turn and was very disappointing in the run to the line. He said carrying top weight in today’s event may have had a detrimental effect on the overall performance. He added that in his opinion it races best on very firm surfaces. Vetted, slow recovery.

Began very awkwardly and made heavy contact with the barrier partition, almost unbalancing its rider. When asked to explain the performance of the gelding, jockey J. Byrne expressed his view that the speed slackened quite appreciably mid-race and therefore he elected to come out to improve into the race passing the 700m and at the same time the leaders quickened and his mount then struggled to get into the race from that point. He added that in his opinion the gelding’s chances were not suited by the slow tempo in the middle stages and the quick sprint home.
