Slow to begin. Jockey J. Taylor reported that his mount laid out rounding the home turn and felt awkward in its action throughout the race. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be lame in its off fore leg. Trainer B. Mahon was advised that BOOMI’S BUDDY will require a veterinary clearance prior to next racing.

Shifted four wide to improve after passing the 600m and when placed under pressure rounding the home turn failed to respond and proved disappointing over the final 200m. Performed below market expectation. $1.60 beaten favourite. Refer full report for comments from jockey and trainer. A post-race veterinary examination of BRING ME SHOWERS failed to reveal any abnormalities. Stewards will follow-up with trainer S. O’Dea in the ensuing days in relation to the mare’s performance. A post-race swab sample was taken from the mare.

Began awkwardly and shifted out, in doing so hampered JOHN BOOKE. Laid out rounding the home turn. After passing the 200m, laid in when placed under pressure, resulting in Jockey J. Byrne having to stop riding and straighten his mount on several occasions. Performed below market expectation. Jockey J. Byrne stated that the gelding raced keenly throughout and when placed under pressure failed to respond.
