Commenced to race keenly near the 1000m when being steadied off the heels of AMOREM, which rolled in.
Inconvenienced and carried wide at the 800m before being steadied back to obtain a position three wide with cover.
Slow to begin. Carried wider making the turn into the straight. Laid inwards in the straight.
The veterinary surgeon reported that the filly had sustained a laceration outside the near hind cannon as a result of being galloped on and had lost the near hind plate and was referred to the Gatton University for further treatment.
J. Byrne reported at scale that his mount never relaxed during the event and this had a bearing on its capacity to finish the race off strongly.
Struck the rail when leaving the enclosure, dislodging J. Bayliss. On arrival at the barriers the colt underwent an veterinary examination and was cleared to start. Jockey Bayliss was examined by the ambulance attendants and cleared to fulfil his engagement.
Crowded approaching the turn into the straight when racing tight to the inside of TUMBLER RIDGE and to the outside of NICCI’S SPIRIT, which rolled outwards. L. Cassidy was reprimanded for using the whip on 7 occasions prior to the 100m.
Slow to begin. Commenced to race ungenerously when being eased approaching the 900m and shifted outwards and thereafter hung out and raced wide. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities other than minor lacerations to the offside mouth. Trainer S. Kendrick was advised that the filly must trial satisfactorily prior to being permitted to race again.
