Jumped away very awkwardly and made heavy contact with the barrier partition, almost dislodging the rider’s off-side foot from his iron. Near the 1200m shifted wider on the track to improve to secure a position running second on the fence at a point passing the 1000m. A post race veterinary examination revealed the horse had an abrasion to the off-side hip consistent with having made contact with the barrier partition.
Jumped awkwardly lost ground. Held up from the 600m until approaching the 300m and then laid in under pressure in the home straight, causing its rider to stop riding and straighten over the concluding stages. Jockey Lloyd reported connections had indicated to him in light of this they would now experiment with the addition of a bubble cheeker to the horse’s gear.
Slow to begin.
Shifted wider near the 1100m to improve to a position behind the leader passing the 900m.
A post race veterinary examination of the gelding, which overraced in the early and middle stages before weakening from approaching the 600m, failed to reveal any significant abnormalities. Connections were advised that a warning would be placed on the horse.
