O’Dea was ad­vised that the horse would be in­el­i­gi­ble to race for 3 months, and prior re­sum­ing racing must gal­lop sat­is­fac­to­rily over 1000m in the pres­ence of a ste­ward.

Ljung), which shifted in when not fully clear. E. Ljung was rep­ri­manded.

Race 6: SA­LUTER – Late scratch­ing at 1.10 pm for vet­eri­nary rea­sons. ROCKY KING – Trainer T. Bourke was ques­tioned re­gard­ing the horse’s im­proved per­for­mance. He stated that he was dis­ap­pointed with the rider’s ef­forts at the horse’s pre­vi­ous start on 13 Au­gust as the geld­ing tended to over­race when be­ing re­strained be­hind leader. He added that ROCKY KING, prior to start, had won a trial over 1270m at the Sun­shine Coast in good fash­ion. The ex­pla­na­tion was noted. EL SASSO – M. Cahill was ques­tioned re­gard­ing his rid­ing of EL in the early stages. He stated that he was in­structed by the Snow­dens to at­tempt to get cover and did that im­me­di­ately af­ter leav­ing the bar­ri­ers. He added that EL SASSO, when be­ing stead­ied, was in­clined to over­race and af­ter leav­ing the 1000m was in­con­ve­nienced by ELLAWISDOM, which shifted out to his in­side, re­sult­ing in his mount be­ing forced wider. He fur­ther added that he be­lieved that in the early stages of the straight he felt his mount was bet­ter suited im­prov­ing to the in­side as was of the opin­ion that to­day’s racing suited horses racing be­tween 2 and 6 wide, how­ever, in his opin­ion EL SASSO only fin­ished the race off mod­er­ately. Trainer Paul Snow­don, when con­tacted, con­firmed the in­struc­tions and in­di­cated that EL SASSO, when ex­posed early, pulls very hard does not fin­ish races off and the sta­ble had given in­struc­tions to jockey Cahill to find cover. He added that the tempo of to­day’s race, when it de­vel­oped into a sprint home, did not suit the horse and added that he was sat­is­fied with jockey Cahill’s rid­ing of the horse in the straight, par­tic­u­larly sav­ing ground to the in­side.

Race 7: AMEXED – Lost the off fore plate in run­ning. SPURTONIC – Fin­ished a dis­tant last. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed no ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer S. O’Dea ad­vised stew­ards that the geld­ing would now be re­tired. AL­PHA BEAT – Con­nec­tions ad­vised that the horse would be rid­den in a for­ward po­si­tion, pos­si­bly

lead, if cir­cum­stances per­mit. The horse led early and then set­tled be­hind the lead­ers pass­ing the 1000m.
