Black Tom­a­hawk - rider Craig Wil­liams was ques­tioned re­gard­ing his tac­tics adopted in the home straight on the fi­nal oc­ca­sion. He ex­plained he was given spe­cific in­struc­tions to en­sure that his mount is

its best chance to win by putting it un­der pres­sure in­side the fi­nal 200m, as it failed to fin­ish its race off at its last start at Moonee Val­ley on Au­gust 20th af­ter be­ing put un­der pres­sure at a much ear­lier stage of the race. He added that once he did put his mount un­der pres­sure in­side the 200m his mount was un­able to over­haul the even­tual win­ner, Luc­ques. He added that af­ter hav­ing that horse cov­ered at the 200m his mount failed to strongly stay the trip. O’lon­era - rider Dwayne Dunn stated in his opin­ion the geld­ing had come to end of its prepa­ra­tion.

When ques­tioned re­gard­ing his tac­tics, rider Ben Mel­ham ex­plained that when the geld­ing won at its first start at Sandown on July 27th it came from back in the field and then at its next start on Au­gust 27th Caulfield was dis­ap­point­ing af­ter tak­ing up a for­ward po­si­tion, hence the tac­tics that were no­ti­fied to­day to try and set­tle the geld­ing in the early stages. He added that his main pri­or­ity in the early stages was to carry out those in­struc­tions and was en­deav­our­ing main­tain a po­si­tion be­hind Cap­tain Duffy in the early stages, how­ever he was un­able to hold that po­si­tion af­ter pass­ing the 1200m and elected go to fence rather than risk­ing his mount over-rac­ing by get­ting into a duel with Throssell which was en­deav­our­ing to take the same po­si­tion. He con­firmed that he had dif­fi­culty in gain­ing clear run­ning and that his mount was only tested over the fi­nal 200m of the race when even­tu­ally gain­ing clear run­ning and at that time also want­ing to hang in to the point where he had stop rid­ing over the con­clud­ing stages to avoid the heels of Re­volv­ing Door.

Co-trainer Mr Autridge ex­plained the horse had dif­fi­culty rac­ing in anti-clock­wise di­rec­tion pre­vi­ously and he could only at­tribute the dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance to the con­di­tions of straight course rac­ing and would end
