Rider, Kate Walters was questioned regarding her tactics adopted upon DENIM’S GIFT that was restrained from the start and settled in a worse than mid field position, contrary to the mare’s recent pattern of racing. K Walters explained it was her intention to settle DENIM’S GIFT in a handy to midfield position as the mare had not been finishing its races off when ridden forward. K Walters added she restrained after the start as she did not wish to be caught racing wide. Trainer Mark Greig anticipated DENIM’S GIFT settling in a midfield position, but after being ridden more positively out of the barriers.

Upon return to scales rider, Ryan Maloney reported GENERAL ORDERS over raced and therefore failed to finish the race off. Trainer, Matthew Williams stated from the inside barrier draw it was the intention to be positive from the start, however this may have contributed to GENERAL ORDERS over racing and weakening in the latter stages. M Williams suggested GENERAL ORDERS may be best ridden just behind the speed in future race starts. A post race veterinary examination of GENERAL ORDERS revealed no abnormalities. Post race swab samples were collected from GENERAL ORDERS.
Rider, Jamie Mott reported upon return to scales that from today’s favourable draw he was more positive upon GIGABYTE that trailed the leader, however failed to finish the race off as expected. J Mott added that at GIGABYTE’S most recent race start the gelding was slow to begin, however ran on well and GIGABYTE may be better ridden in this fashion.

On the evidence it was established BRAUHAUSER was shifting in when following the movement of GOLD BRIDIAN that it was trailing. It was noted BRAUHAUSER was racing to the inside of the heels of AQUA’S EDGE and also directly to the inside of CROSS STREET. As a consequence D Lane was in a position where he was unable to relieve the pressure to EASTON before that gelding was checked. In determining to not proceed with a charge against D Lane, Stewards noted the position he was in with pressure being received from the outside, however notified D Lane when in similar circumstances, it would be expected he make a far greater effort to protect the welfare and interests of runners to his inside.
After meeting with interference near the 1000 metres EASTON commenced to over race and was checked away from the heels of BRAUHAUSER on numerous occasions. Near the 600 metres EASTON was again placed in restricted room when tightened between BRAUHAUSER and KAYARBEE that shifted out marginally.
