Began very awkwardly and shifted out abruptly losing significant ground. Passing the 1300m, when the pace slackened, was shifted three wide and allowed to stride forward to obtain the lead after passing the 1200m. After obtaining the lead passing the 1200m steadied by its rider and commenced to overrace. After passing the 600m had a tendency to lay out when being restrained and continued to hang out for the remainder of the event.

Began awkwardly and lost some ground. Rider questioned re tactics - explained filly settled in a rearward position, which is consistent with normal racing pattern. After passing 500m when pace quickened filly was left flatfooted. In his opinion when pace quickened, racing between horses and not having a lot of room and today’s track conditions may have contributed to the filly hitting a flat spot and being unable to quicken between the 500m and 300m but finished well over final 200m. Explanation accepted.

The near side winker became detached passing the 700m. Rider asked to comment re tactics - explained instructions were from wide barrier to be neutral and ride in a rearward position to give it a chance to finish race off. Stated even though it was a small field he was of the opinion gelding was unable to make up the amount of ground over final stages due to today’s track conditions. Trainer confirmed instructions given as the gelding had previously failed to finish off its races when ridden in a forward position.

After passing 600m commenced to weaken and finished a distant last. Vetted - tongue tie had become slightly displaced on returning to enclosure. Stewards advised trainer gelding’s nomination would be refused at TAB meetings until such time as it for improves at non-TAB meetings. Mr S.
