Steward Comment

When questioned regarding the improved performance, stable representative Mr M. Hoysted explained that the gelding appreciated racing without a cross-over noseband as it had resented racing in this gear at previous starts. He added that the distance of 1400m first up today allowed the gelding to be ridden aggressively and obtain a forward position.

Steward Comment

Near the 1200m had to be steadied when placed in restricted room to the inside of THE REAL SPIEL, which was taken in by SAVVY ROCK. A short distance later BIT OF ALRIGHT was bumped when placed in restricted room to the inside of THE REAL SPIEL, which had to be steadied when awkwardly placed at the heels of DIPLOMATIC MISS. As stewards were satisfied that this was not as a result of any carelessness from any rider, they reported the matter as a racing incident.

Steward Comment

Jockey N. Day reported to stewards the gelding did not appreciate today’s racing surface and over the concluding stages desisted from continuing to pressure his mount. Stewards will follow up with trainer A. Williamson regarding the gelding’s recovery.

Steward Comment

Stewards opened an inquiry into jockey J. Lloyd’s riding in the home straight. After taking evidence from jockey Lloyd, the matter was adjourned to a time and date to be fixed. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.
