Began awkwardly. Improved onto the heels of ZARAFET passing the 400m, and was held up for clear running until approaching the 250m.
Ridden forward in an attempt to find a handy position with cover, however was unable to do so, and then commenced to overrace passing the 900m and its rider elected to stride forward to obtain the joint leading position 3 wide without cover.
Slow to begin.
Improved onto the heels of TRANSVERSALE after passing the 100m, and went to the line without being fully tested.
Bumped by FA FA when racing in restricted room to the inside of that runner passing the 900m.
Buffeted between ZARAFET and MOUNT BEAUTY when racing in restricted room after MOUNT BEAUTY was taken in by BELLE’S PLUCK passing the 900m. On return to scale, jockey J. Byrne was at a loss to explain the below market expectation performance of the gelding today which, in his opinion, was disappointing. A post-race veterinary examination of the gelding failed to reveal any abnormalities.
Crowded for room and bumped on the hindquarters passing the 900m and, as a result, became unbalanced, and was then forced inwards before having to be restrained from the heels of BELLE’S PLUCK which shifted in when not completely clear. Raced 3 wide with cover after passing the 800m.
