Steward Report Predict Pace Map
As the start was effected, AEROVELOCITY bounded in the air, resulting in its rider, Z Purton, becoming unbalanced. After this, AEROVELOCITY was shifted across behind runners. GO BABY GO got its head on the side and shifted out at the start, resulting in FREDERICK ENGELS being taken out onto ABLE FRIEND. BULLISH FRIEND began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped GOLDEN HARVEST. From wide barriers, SMART VOLATILITY and CHARLES THE GREAT were shifted across behind runners in the early stages. After the 600 Metres, SMART VOLATILITY was taken wider by ABLE FRIEND which shifted out. GOLDEN HARVEST was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 350 Metres was steadied when disappointed for a run between GO BABY GO and STERLING CITY which shifted in. GOLDEN HARVEST was then held up behind STERLING CITY until near the 250 Metres. Passing the 100 Metres, SUPER JOCKEY shifted out under pressure. Close to the finishing line, ABLE FRIEND was awkwardly placed outside SUPER JOCKEY. When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of STERLING CITY, J Moreira stated that STERLING CITY was worked up in the Parade Ring and behind the barriers which was unusual for the horse. He said after being left racing in a three wide position and without cover near the 800 Metres, STERLING CITY gave him only a limited response in the early part of the Straight when asked to quicken. He said, in his opinion, STERLING CITY was disappointing in the manner in which it gave ground, particularly over the latter stages of the Straight. A veterinary inspection of STERLING CITY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. AEROVELOCITY and SUPER JOCKEY were sent for sampling.
