When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of LUCKY BALL, N Rawiller stated that in the early stages he was able to obtain a good position in about midfield. He said when MR VANILLA improved to the outside of LUCKY BALL after the 800 Metres he had hoped that that horse would continue forward which would provide him with the opportunity to follow that horse into the race as the slow sectionals were not to LUCKY BALL’s advantage. He said however that MR VANILLA did not continue forward which resulted in LUCKY BALL being positioned inside that horse until after straightening. He added at the entrance to the Straight he immediately shifted LUCKY BALL to the outside of runners in the hope that it would close off the race, however, as LUCKY BALL is one-paced and due to the slow early sectionals, the horse did not quicken sufficiently for it to threaten in the Straight.
A veterinary inspection of LUCKY BALL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
