Hung in badly in the early stages and then continued to hang in for the majority of the event.
Tightened for room at the start.
Steadied from heels for a considerable distance whilst racing keenly near the 800m.
Slow to begin. Laid in under pressure in the home straight.
When questioned in relation to the performance of the mare which drifted noticeably in betting, Jockey S Thornton stated that after the mare began only fairly, she elected to ride toward the rear of the field during the event. She added that the mare only travelled reasonably during the middle stages and approaching the home turn hit a flat spot and failed to immediately quicken as she had of hoped. Jockey Thornton however added that upon straightening the mare commenced to run on well despite hanging in slightly and as such was satisfied with its performance.
Began awkwardly. Momentarily steadied when awkwardly placed to the inside of GO DEEP which had a tendency to lay in over the final 50m.
App. K Wilson-Taylor reported that the gelding raced flat today and, in his opinion, may have come to the end of its current preparation. A post-race Veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities. Trainer M Eggleston reported he would now consider sending the gelding for a spell.
