On arrival at the Start, FOREVER FUN became fractious, resulting in its rider, R Moore, being dislodged. FOREVER FUN then proceeded riderless to the 1800 Metre mark where it made contact with a rail. FOREVER FUN was examined by the Veterinary Officer who found the horse to be distressed and not suitable to race. Accordingly FOREVER FUN was withdrawn by order of the Stewards. As this was the second consecutive occasion that FOREVER FUN had dislodged its rider on arrival at the barriers, the Stewards ruled that the horse must proceed to and perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination before being permitted to race again.
When behind the barriers, O'SOCOOLE lost its left front plate on two occasions, resulting in the horse having to be replated. O'SOCOOLE was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.
ORIENTAL FANTASIA began awkwardly and was ridden along in the early stages in an attempt to obtain a forward position.
From a wide barrier, INTELLECTUAL GLIDE was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
Approaching the 1000 Metres, CHANS DELIGHT shifted out and bumped ORIENTAL FANTASIA.
INTELLECTUAL GLIDE had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.
When questioned, J Moreira stated that it had been intended for A FAST ONE to be ridden behind the leaders if possible. He said because of the circumstances of the race in the early stages, he used his initiative and assumed the lead on the horse and was then able to dictate the terms of the race at a slow tempo.
Throughout the race, GOLDWEAVER travelled wide and without cover.
After the race, G Mosse dismounted from EASY AHEAD after that horse was found to have shifted its right front plate. A veterinary inspection of EASY AHEAD found that horse to have punctured the sole of its foot and was lame as a consequence.
CHANS DELIGHT and A FAST ONE were sent for sampling.
