STREET TAIPAN (M Kellady), which was slow into stride, shifted outwards
after the start and made contact with the hindquarters of ARES (J Powell).
TIME ODYSSEY (O Placais) jumped inwards at the start making contact with
BLUE DANUBE (B Vorster) and NEWLANDS (V Duric) were both crowded on
jumping between ROCKFAST (M Nunes), which jumped outwards and
MAJESTIC MOMENTS (N Juglall), which jumped inwards.
MR SPIELBERG (G Boss), which jumped away awkwardly, was slow to begin
after making contact with the hindquarters of AFFLECK (D Beasley).
Approaching the 1900m, NEWLANDS got its head up when racing tight
between POSEIDON (CW Brown) and BLUE DANUBE. Shortly after, BLUE
DANUBE had to be eased when racing in restricted room between ROCKFAST
and MAJESTIC MOMENTS, which shifted inwards. At about the same time,
WINNING CAUSE (A Da Silva) steadied outwards away from the heels of
POSEIDON, which rolled outwards.
Shortly after passing the 800m, ROCKFAST raced tight for a short distance to
the inside of MAJESTIC MOMENTS.
Passing the 800m, NEWLANDS steadied after improving and becoming
awkwardly placed on the inside of MAJESTIC MOMENTS.
Passing the 700m, MR SPIELBERG was eased when awkwardly placed on the
heels of WELL DONE (M Rodd).
WELL DONE and MR SPIELBERG were both held up and unable to improve
between the 600m and the 400m.
Passing the 300m, ARES, which was giving ground, had to be steadied off the
heels of WELL DONE, which shifted outwards to obtain clear running.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on BELIEVE YOURSELF
(A Munro) which revealed no apparent abnormality.
