RACE 4: Soviet Courage – slow to be­gin. Rider J Col­lett stated that his mount trav­elled well in the run, but in his opin­ion dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance was due to the fact that on to­day’s heavy track the geld­ing did not run out a strong 3200m.

A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Sta­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mr C Duck­worth stated that the mare per­formed be­low ex­pec­ta­tions and, although it has some es­tab­lished heavy track form, none­the­less he en­dorsed the views ex­pressed by J Col­let that Lab­dien was not suited by to­day’s track con­di­tions. He un­der­took to report back to the Stew­ards if there is any­thing amiss with the mare in

days sub­se­quent. RACE 7: Grun­derzeit – as B Av­dulla was over­weight, J Ford sub­sti­tuted the rider of the geld­ing. In cir­cum­stances no ac­tion was taken.

Inz‘n’Out – when questioned, App. J Innes Jr his in­struc­tions were to en­deav­our to ride his mount off the lead to­day. He added at its last start at Rand­wick on 27 May 2017 Inz‘n’Out raced in the lead after be­ing caught wide in the early stages. He said on that oc­ca­sion his in­struc­tions had been sim­i­lar to to­day in he was po­si­tion him­self in be­hind the pace, but the cir­cum­stances of that race re­sulted in the geld­ing be­ing po­si­tioned more for­ward. The Mon­star – rider J Adams was fined the sum of $200 un­der AR137(c) for mak­ing a cel­e­bra­tory ges­ture prior to the win­ning post.

RACE 8: Im­pe­rial Avi­a­tor – slow to be­gin. Rider R Hutch­ings stated his mount was rac­ing first up over 2000m to­day and after ini­tially re­spond­ing to his rid­ing on the home turn, its con­di­tion gave out un­der pres­sure in straight.

He said in his view El Novio be­ing forced to race on in­fe­rior go­ing on the rails was the only ex­pla­na­tion he could of­fer for to­day’s per­for­mance. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

race. Dowd­stown Char­lie – slow to be­gin. Rider B Av­dulla stated his mount on to­day’s very heavy sur­face was un­der pres­sure from as far out as the 600m and the only ex­cuse he could of­fer was that geld­ing did not get through to­day’s test­ing con­di­tions. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mrs K Waugh stated that the geld­ing has mixed its form on sim­i­lar tracks and has per­formed be­low ex­pec­ta­tions on rain af­fected tracks in the past. She un­der­took to report back to the Stew­ards if there is any­thing amiss with Dowd­stown Char­lie in the days sub­se­quent. Noth­ing Box – a post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the geld­ing bled for the first time dur­ing the run­ning of this event and will now in­cur the manda­tory three month em­bargo from rac­ing un­der AR53A).

App. McDougall was rep­ri­manded. In as­sess­ing penalty, Stew­ards found the rac­ing man­ners of Conar­chie, which re­fused to set­tle in the mid­dle stages and got its head up, had con­trib­uted to in­ter­fer­ence. App. A Ad­kins stated his mount trav­elled on the in­side where he felt ground was in­fe­rior. He said, whilst Conar­chie does have some wet track form, he was of the opin­ion the geld­ing did not han­dle to­day’s ex­tremely heavy con­di­tions.. A post-race vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

Bratislava – rider T Clark stated is mount was un­suited by rac­ing on the in­side of the track, which in his view was in­fe­rior. A pos­trace vet­eri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the geld­ing to be dis­play­ing a poor post-race re­cov­ery, res­pi­ra­tory dis­tress and was cough­ing. Trainer’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mr P Reid stated Bratislava had pleased the sta­ble lead­ing into to­day’s race and agreed with the as­sess­ment of T Clark. Mr Reid was ad­vised a vet­eri­nary clear­ance, in­clud­ing the re­sults of an en­do­scopic ex­am­i­na­tion, would be re­quired prior to the geld­ing be­ing per­mit­ted race again.
