Race 1: AB D.B. SIGG - KILCOY DIGGERS MDN HCP – 1900m
PRINCE HUSSON – Declared a late scratching at 1pm by order of Stewards.
BUDDY'S TALE – Over-raced in the middle stages. When questioned regarding the improved performance, trainer D Corbett reported that BUDDY’S TALE in its first prep had been disappointing over shorter distance. This prep she had altered its training program and had been training the gelding over long distances and presented BUDDY’S TALE very fit for today’s 1900m event.
MADAME GRACE – Near the 500m brushed with BUDDY’S TALE on a number of occasions when attempting to improve. Near 150m bumped with BEAUTIFUL CRAZY. Rider J Murphy reported that the mare travelled reasonably throughout, and in his opinion was unsuited by the slow early pace. He added that when a run presented itself rounding the home turn, the mare failed to quicken as he had anticipated and proved disappointing.
ZOFF THE BOSS – Leaving the 1000m shifted out to improve.
BEAUTIFUL CRAZY – Over-raced in the early and middle stages. Laid out rounding the home turn and bumped with MADAME GRACE shortly after.
Race 2: FLT LT M.J. QUINN - TAB LONG MAY WE PLAY MDN HCP – 1200m
THE RAGING PRINCE – When questioned regarding the improved performance, trainer C Vick reported that THE RAGING PRINCE had been working well leading up to today’s event and attributed its previous disappointing performance at Gympie 10 April 2021, to the gelding resenting the racing surface. Stewards noted the explanation.
CANNY SKATE – Began awkwardly shifting out.
BAILEY BOO – Forced wider and checked leaving the 700m when BULLGARI shifted out after improving onto heels and then lost ground when forced to restrain to regain a position. Raced wide for the remainder.
BULLGARI – Reluctant to proceed to the barriers. Trainer N Hocking was advised a warning would be placed on the manners of BULLGARI in relation to his pre-race manners. Approaching the 700m improved onto the heels of BACIO VINCENTE causing the rider to become momentarily unbalanced, checked for several strides before shifting wider to avoid heels and was obliged to race wide for the remainder of the event.
