Steward Comment

Began awkwardly and shifted in and bumped AKAGE. Inclined to lay in under pressure over the final 250m. Rider questioned re settling in a midfield position with cover, in contrast to its most recent pattern where it has settled in a forward position - explained intended to race forward however, when it began awkwardly and soon afterwards crossed by SAUNTER BOY elected to settle the gelding with cover. Added if the tempo was slow in the middle stages she would have improved around the field to lead but as pace was genuine at that stage elected to continue to race with cover. Explanation noted.

Steward Comment

For some distance between the 300m and passing the 200m had difficulty securing a clear run when racing in restricted room between FIGHTING TEO and SAUNTER BOY. Over the final stages became awkward at the heels of ROMAKASH and as a result its rider was unable to ride it out in his normal manner. .

Passing the 200m had to alter course to the outside of LOTA CREEK GOLD in order to improve.
