Steward Comment

Shifted in near the 800 metres when not fully clear resulting in both SUPER TROUBLE and GYPSY ROZAY being tightened for room. S Thornton, rider of SALTOREE, was advised to show greater care in similar circumstances. Held up for clear running from the entrance of the home straight until a point near the 250 metres.

Due to current covid 19 restrictions Stewards permitted J Orman to ride the mare 0.5kg over its allocated weight. Tightened near the 800 metres.

Steward Comment

Slow to begin. Raced three wide without cover throughout. Rider reported after being slow to begin the gelding over-raced when being ridden forward, adding this had a detrimental effect on the finishing effort of LA AMIGO over the concluding stages. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities.

Steward Comment

Rider M Du Plessis reported the gelding got its tongue over the bit during the running of the race which may have had an effect on its performance.
