Eased near the 700m when placed in restricted room to the inside of OUTBACK STORM, which shifted in. Apprentice M. Kennedy, rider of OUTBACK STORM, was reprimanded for this incident. Held up rounding the home turn and steadied from heels near the 400m before shifting wider to secure clear running.

Steward Comment

Raced wide throughout. Jockey J. Orman was questioned regarding the performance of the horse. He stated that he would have preferred to settle in a more forward position, however the horse began awkwardly. He then stated at no stage of the race did the horse travel strongly and he was obliged to niggle the horse in an attempt to hold a position in the middle stages. He added whilst the horse was positioned wide on the track he was disappointed with the horse’s finishing effort. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormality, and a swab sample was taken.
