Over about the final 250 Metres, HAPPY PLACE was unable to obtain clear running and consequently was not able to be properly tested.
Approaching the 200 Metres, PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of LUCKY SCEPTER which became unbalanced.
Just prior to and passing the winning post, LUCKY SCEPTER, which was racing tight inside PAKISTAN BABY, was crowded for room outside PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT (K Teetan) which shifted out. K Teetan was reprimanded.
In the Straight, FUNNY BUDDIES got its head on the side and lay in under pressure.
When questioned, K Teetan stated that it had been intended for PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT to be ridden in a position in front of midfield if possible from barrier 4. He said just prior to the start being effected PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT turned its head to the left and then as the start was effected lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently was slow to begin. He said when PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT was slow to begin, DEJA VU, which was drawn to the outside of PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT, shifted in and because of this he was then unable to immediately improve its position. He said he rode his mount along in the early stages to make up lost ground, however, due to the positioning of other runners, PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT was required to race towards the rear of the field and much further back than had been intended.
A veterinary inspection of NUMERO UNO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
SPICY SURE and INVINCIBLE FRESH were sent for sampling.
