Steward Report Predict Pace Map
GENERAL IRON and RED MARVEL both began awkwardly. Shortly after the start, GIANT STARS became unbalanced after being bumped by GENERAL IRON. From the outside barriers, GENEROUS BOBO and RED KYLIN were shifted across behind runners in the early stages. When being steadied in the early stages from a wide barrier to obtain cover, GREAT RUN travelled keenly and got its head up on a number of occasions. Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, GENERAL IRON got its head on the side and shifted out across the heels of LOTUS BREEZE, resulting in GENERAL IRON losing ground. YOURTHEWONFORME, which was racing outside GENERAL IRON, became unbalanced and lost ground when crowded for room between GENERAL IRON and SPEEDYGONZALEZ. For some distance after the 900 Metres, GENERAL IRON proved difficult to settle when awkwardly placed close to the heels of LOTUS BREEZE. For some distance approaching and passing the 800 Metres, YOURTHEWONFORME travelled keenly and got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed close to the heels of MULTIMAX. Due to the moderate tempo of the race in the middle stages, a number of horses proved difficult to settle, namely RED MARVEL, RED KYLIN and GREAT RUN. Near the 450 Metres, RED KYLIN was momentarily crowded for room inside ACCLAIMED LIGHT which got its head on the side and lay in. GENEROUS BOBO had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight. For some distance passing the 200 Metres, GENERAL IRON raced in restricted room when improving into tight running between WILD BOY and LOTUS BREEZE. Then near the 100 Metres, WILD BOY was bumped by GENERAL IRON which continued to race tight inside LOTUS BREEZE. RED KYLIN was unable to obtain clear running over the final 200 Metres. After the 100 Metres, GENEROUS BOBO and YOURTHEWONFORME raced tight. Over the concluding stages, GIANT STARS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of LOTUS BREEZE when racing tight inside MULTIMAX. Consequently GIANT STARS was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race. Throughout the race, SPEEDYGONZALEZ travelled wide and without cover. B Prebble (LOTUS BREEZE) was cautioned by the Stewards regarding the appropriateness of language that he used immediately following the race. When questioned regarding his riding out of MULTIMAX, 7th placegetter, over the concluding stages, G Mosse stated that he placed the horse under heavy pressure in the Straight. He said approaching the 50 Metres GIANT STARS had improved quickly to his inside and that horse had then continued to improve to be racing close to the heels of LOTUS BREEZE passing the 50 Metres. He said as the rider of GIANT STARS had his mount's head turned out in an attempt to avoid the heels of the horse in front, he felt it would be in the best interests of all concerned if he allowed GIANT STARS to shift out away from the heels of LOTUS BREEZE rather than be left racing in a dangerous position. He added because of this he did not ride his mount out over the concluding stages. G Mosse was advised that his explanation was accepted, however, he was informed of his obligation to ride his mounts out all the way to the end of the race where circumstances permit. GENERAL IRON and LOTUS BREEZE were sent for sampling.
