Raced 3 wide without cover. When asked to explain the performance today, apprentice M. Murphy explained the gelding travelled fairly throughout the event, however failed to respond when asked for an effort and proved disappointing. He further added the blinkers were removed for today’s event and, in his opinion, that gear may need to be added for its next race start.

As the start was effected reared slightly and began awkwardly, losing ground. After racing in a rearward position when placed under pressure in the early part of the home straight failed to respond and weakened to finish a distant last. A post race veterinary examination revealed the horse to be suffering from cardiac arrhythmia. A swab sample was taken. Trainer M. Costa was advised the horse must undergo an ECG, with the results to be forwarded to stewards, including a veterinary clearance, and that the horse must trial satisfactorily prior to its next race start.
