Bumped by another runner on jumping away and lost ground. Forced to steady in the early stages to avoid heels when the pace slackened. Lost the off fore plate in running.
Raced wide without cover.
Laid out under pressure in the home straight. When asked to comment on the performance, R. Stewart indicated that the tempo of the race was slower than he would have liked and that he had anticipated being a little bit further back in the field, however, felt that the horse travelled comfortably until being asked to respond approaching the home turn and did not quicken. He felt that the horse having its first run this preparation over 1400m may have had an effect but he could offer no explanation for the performance, which he felt was disappointing.
Jumped awkwardly and bumped another runner.
A post-race veterinary examination found the horse was making an abnormal respiratory noise.
Raced wide throughout.
