9 B069  LITTLE BIRD  22/09/2018  44  LITTLE BIRD (B069) as the start was effected was leaning on the outside of its barrier and then began awkwardly. When questioned regarding the disappointing performance, rider stated that after beginning awkwardly he rode his mount along in the early stages to obtain a forward position as instructed. He said the horse never travelled comfortably throughout the race and came under pressure near the 500M. He said the horse was not able to quicken and, despite being ridden out, finished off the race one-paced over the concluding stages. He added he believed that the horse would be best suited over a distance of longer than that of the race. Post-race vet inspection did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious - Race 044.
