Steward Comment

After being slightly slow to begin, the gelding was then further hampered when tightened for room. When questioned by Stewards in relation to the seemingly improved performance, Trainer P. Kings advised that jockey J. Byrne had reported following the horse’s last start that it was reluctant to stretch out on the firm track on that occasion. He added that, for this reason, he elected to return the horse to racing at Toowoomba which, in his opinion, is a track which has more natural give, and where the horse has previously been successful on a number of occasions.

Raced keenly in the early stages and proved difficult to restrain before being checked off heels approaching the 1400m.

Steward Comment

Jockey N. Tomizawa reported that the gelding raced one paced today, and was under pressure from the 800m and proved disappointing. He added that, in his opinion, the gelding races best when able to lead in its races, however when MARLAHN set a strong tempo in the early stages, his mount was unable to obtain this position. A post-race veterinary examination of the gelding revealed no significant findings.

Steward Comment

Raced 3 wide without cover throughout. Steadied to avoid heels near the 150m. On return to scale, Apprentice A. Patis expressed disappointment in the performance of the gelding and advised that, despite racing wide, the gelding came off the bit a considerable distance from home and had failed to run on as she had expected. A post-race veterinary examination of the gelding revealed no significant findings.
