Stewards questioned jockey J. Lloyd regarding the horse’s overall performance. He indicated that from the wide alley he had been instructed to settle the horse at the tail of the field and did so, adding that the pace of the race caused his mount to be off the bit for the entire race. He was obliged to niggle the horse throughout, and he was able to save ground when rounding the home turn by improving to the inside. He added that the horse found the line well under riding in the home straight.
As L. Magorrian was to be overweight, M. Murphy was substituted as the rider of the horse. Apprentice Magorrian was reprimanded.
Raced 3 wide without cover from the 800m.
