Bumped by another runner after passing the 750m and forced wider, losing ground, and then raced wide throughout.
Bumped by another runner on jumping away. Stewards questioned M. Du Plessis regarding the tactics he adopted as the horse settled further back in the field than at its most recent start. He explained that he had been given no specific instructions, however, from the wide alley he had anticipated that the horse would begin well and he would hopefully be able to take up a forward position. He added that after being bumped in the early stages and horses racing to the inside showing early speed, he elected to restrain to obtain a position closer to the fence with cover.
Raced greenly throughout the event, became awkward at heels after passing the 750m and had to be checked. Obliged to alter course approaching the 350m to secure clear running.
Severely tightened for room after passing the 750m and had to be checked, losing significant ground. Stewards inquired into this incident and found that DACKARNA, after being steadied at the 750m, resented being restrained and was unable at that point to be controlled by its rider and shifted in causing the interference to ROZEIRA.
Shifted in abruptly near the 750m and made heavy contact with the hind quarters of BELVOIR and became awkward before shifting wider on the track. Connections were advised that a warning would be placed on the horse’s manners. Raced wide without cover throughout.
Bumped heavily on the hind quarters by another runner after passing the 750m and became unbalanced. Raced greenly under pressure in the straight.
Jumped awkwardly and bumped another runner. Resented being restrained at the 750m, was unable to be controlled by its rider and shifted in, causing interference to ROZEIRA. Trainer J. Edwards was advised that the horse must officially trial prior to starting again.
Significantly slow to begin, trailed the field throughout and finished a distant last. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no significant findings. Trainer R. Davidson was advised that the horse would be barred from racing at TAB venues until its form improves.
