WHISTLE UP began only fairly and then when being ridden along was crowded for room inside PEACE ON EARTH which was taken in by EXPONENTS. After this, from a wide barrier, WHISTLE UP was steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover. PEACE ON EARTH and EXPONENTS were also shifted across behind runners from the outside barriers to obtain cover in the early stages.

SHOW MISSION was shifted out further to obtain clear running after the 75 Metres.
Throughout the race, CARRY TO WIN travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.
