Table Two – when questioned regarding the performance, rider apprentice N Heywood stated that his instructions were to be positive and he anticipated either leading or settling outside the lead. He said after his mount was slow to begin it was quickly crossed and therefore settled in a position further back than anticipated. He said he put his mount into clear running on straightening and when asked for an effort his mount was somewhat once paced notwithstanding the last 600 metres was run in 32.53. He added that in his view Table Two maybe looking for races over a longer journey. A post race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Portland Place – A post race veterinary examination revealed the mare to be lame in the off fore leg. Stable representative N Perry was advised that a veterinary clearance must be produced prior to Portland Place's next race start.

Geegeeaye – laid out for some distance rounding the turn near the 1600m. Laid out rounding the home turn.

Rider A Gibbons reported that his mount got its tongue over the bit during the course of the race and consequently did not finish its race off. A post race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Stable representative P Burns indicated that the stable would now experiment with the gear on the filly for its next race start.

 

Miss Shanti – near the 200m shifted to the outside of the heels of Faith In Hand to continue to improve into clear running.

RACE 7 – Rankin Elison Lawyers Colts, Geldings & Entires Maiden Handicap 1400m

Hinchman – as declared rider apprentice J Van Overmeire was stood down after riding in Race 4, and no suitable apprentice was available, permission was granted for J Adams to be substituted. When questioned regarding the performance J Adams stated that his mount travelled well in the early and middle stages however when Enlightened Boy improved to his inside near the 600m Hinchman was under pressure from that point and did not run on in the straight. J Adams added that in his opinion Hinchman would be better suited when able to dictate terms in front. A post race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Enlightened Boy – raced wide without cover throughout.

 

New Horizons – slow to begin and then was taken back behind runners from its wide barrier.

 

Oakfield Private – began awkwardly, shifted out and hampered Netherlands.
