Steward Comment

Bumped by another runner near the 300m. When questioned regarding the improved performance as compared to its previous start, trainer S. Royes stated that the horse was not suited by the pattern of racing at its last start when it raced back in the field and felt the gelding is much better suited when able to race in a forward position, which it was able to do today. Her explanation was noted. Ms Royes was advised that it would be expected for the horse to race in a similar pattern in future.

Rider P. Romeo advised stewards on returning to scale that the gelding had a tendency to hang out throughout the race and was further of the opinion that the horse may have held its breath and that he had advised connections that it may be beneficial to add a tongue tie to its racing gear.
