Raced wide early before obtaining the lead near the 700m. Laid out on a number of occasions in the home straight and had to be corrected by its rider.

Held up between the 400m and 200m, and near the 100m was disappointed for a run and went to line without being fully tested.

Near the 800m when racing in restricted room had to be steadied. Held up rounding the home turn.

Steward Comment

When asked to comment on the seemingly disappointing performance apprentice K Wilson-Taylor stated the mare travelled well but when placed under pressure failed to respond. A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities. Co trainer T Edmonds indicated that in light of today’s performance it may be their intention to retire the mare from racing.
