Slow to begin. Held up from the 400m until approaching the 250m. Disappointed for a run between GREYT INTENTIONS and FAST THINKER approaching the 100m and, as a result, had to alter course to the inside of GREY INTENTIONS to secure clear running.
Improved onto the heels of FAST THINKER and had to be restrained passing the 800m and, as a result, shifted wider on the track.
Began awkwardly. Raced 3 wide with cover throughout.
Hampered on jumping. Improved onto the heels of ATOMIC BOMB, which laid in whilst weakening approaching the 300m and, as a result, WHY WOULDN’T YOU had to alter course back to the inside to secure clear running.
When asked to comment on the tactics adopted, jockey B. Ainsworth advised that it was her intention to obtain a handy position with cover, however after beginning well from the wide barrier, she was unable to obtain that position and therefore allowed her mount to stride forward and assume the lead. Stewards noted the explanation.
Bumped shortly after the start. Raced 3 wide without cover throughout. Forced wider on the track by PHOENIX SHADOW which shifted out passing the 800m.
