Held up rounding the home turn for a short distance and then had some difficulty securing clear running on straightening. Approaching the 100m laid out slightly under pressure and bumped SHE SALUTES.

Steward Comment

Jockey A. Fancourt reported that after passing the 800m the gelding was inclined to lay in and continued to do so for the remainder of the event. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no apparent abnormalities.

After being caught three wide in the run down the straight on the first occasion, was allowed to stride forward to take up the lead passing the 1400m.

Steward Comment

When asked to comment on the performance, Jockey R. Plumb stated that the gelding was obliged to race in a forward position in the early and middle stages of the event and failed to settle at that point of the race. When placed under pressure leaving the 600m, the gelding proved disappointing and in his opinion may have come to the end of its current preparation. Stable representative for Trainer R. Heathcote advised that he would now consider whether to continue with the geldings current campaign.
