OUR ROCKY – Stewards questioned N Tomizawa regarding his riding over the final 400m. He explained that approaching the 400m his mount had a tendency to hang out and shifted ground inwards becoming awkward at heels at this point. He further stated that when rounding the home turn he was following the eventual winner JAKAMA and when that runner improved to the inside of PHABENI approaching the 200m, he had hoped to improve into a run between PHABENI and TWELVE APOSTLES, however when that run closed he was obliged to shift to the inside of PHABENI. After having obtained this run it commenced to close when PHABENI shifted in over the concluding stages and this resulted in him being unable to fully test his mount. Trainer D Pearson viewed the stewards footage and agreed with the comments of jockey Tomizawa. Stewards accepted the explanation.
