Placed in restricted room on jumping away.
Jockey J. Taylor’s saddle shifted backwards shortly after the start placing him at a disadvantage for the remainder.
Improved onto the heels of a tiring runner near the 500m and, as a result, was checked before shifting to the inside to secure clear running.
When questioned by Stewards regarding the below market expectation performance, Apprentice B. Nothdurft advised that the filly travelled in a favourable position during the race, however when placed under pressure it failed to quicken as he had expected and proved disappointing. Trainer N. McCall also expressed disappointment in the performance of the filly which, in her opinion, failed to run out the 1400m today. She added that in light of this performance she will now consider the horse’s future in her stable.
Jockey R. Goltz could offer no tangible explanation for the seemingly poor performance of the mare, however he noted that it was rising sharply in weight and distance today.
A post-race veterinary examination of the mare, which tailed off, failed to reveal any abnormalities. Trainer G. Blake was advised that in light of today’s performance the mare will be required to barrier trial to the satisfaction of Stewards prior to its next race start.
