After arriving at the barrier, RUBICON (CW Brown) had its saddle readjusted.
GREAT BALLS OFFIRE (App K AIsisuhairi), which was slow to begin after
jumping away awkwardly, was severely inconvenienced by
NINETYSEVENSUCCESS (I Saifudin), which shifted outwards abruptly.
Shortly after the start, EL VERDUGO (O Chavez) had to be steadied off the
heels of LIMS GREETING (A Munro), which shifted inwards.
Passing the 1200m, EL VERDUGO checked when racing to the inside of
NINETYSEVENSUCCESS. An Inquiry into this incident will be held at a date
to be fixed.
Approaching the turn into the straight, NINETYSEVENSUCCESS mis-strode

Approaching the 400m, NINETYSEVENSUCCESS steadied inwards when
attempting to improve to the inside of BM POWER (L Allpress), which laid
outwards. Shortly after, NINETYSEVENSUCCESS was disappointed for a run
when BM POWER shifted inwards.
Approaching the 250m, GREAT BALLS OFFIRE, which was making ground
