SOLE AMBITION - restrained early and then shuffled back on the marker line during the middle stages when the lead changed on several occasions. Raced three wide with cover from the 800m before commencing to improve wide passing the 300m. Shifted in and had to be corrected near the 150m before finishing on strongly into 2nd place beaten a long neck. Junior Driver N Delany, assisted by Senior Driver S Phelan, was questioned regarding his drive and in particular as to whether he would have been better served to have commenced to improve earlier on the final turn. Mr Delany stated that he had elected to go back at the start and look to get a trail forward into the race as the gelding had performed well previously when driven for one run. He further stated that he had felt that COUNT LANDECK, which he was following, was still travelling well approaching the 400m but that the gelding had then started to battle shortly after so he shifted SOLE AMBITION out to commence it's run however FLYING STEPS had established a winning break which he had been unable to make up. Mr Delaney also conceded that in hindsight it would have been a better option to commence his run earlier rather than remain on the back of COUNT LANDECK. After considering the matter Mr Delaney was severely reprimanded for the manner in which he had driven and advised that he would be expected to show better judgement given similar circumstances in the future.

MEGASTAR - commenced to tire from the 500 metres badly inconveniencing the trailing CHOSEN MAJOR. A post race veterinary examination revealed a significant amount of mucus in the trachea which would require treatment. An investigation was held into an incident near the 350 metres where CHOSEN MAJOR became awkwardly positioned to the outside of MEGASTAR. Junior Driver F Schumacher, assisted by Senior Driver J Dickie, stated that his gelding had over-raced badly during the running and had run up onto the back of Driver B Mangos on numerous occasions despite his efforts. Mr Schumacher further stated that CHOSEN MAJOR had become fierce when MEGASTAR commenced to weaken leaving the back straight and that he had been contacting MEGASTAR's sulky for some strides when attempting to shift out off that runner's back near the 350 metres due to his gelding laying in. He further added that he had encountered difficulties with visibility after having removed his protective glasses prior to this incident and did not witness anything untoward take place. Driver B Mangos stated that his helmet had been pushed forward by the trailing CHOSEN MAJOR on numerous occasions during the running and he was aware that Mr Schumacher was having considerable difficulty and in particular when that runner shifted out off his back when in restricted room near the 350 metres so he had attempted to fend CHOSEN MAJOR off as a safety measure to prevent that runner from ending up in his sulky. Mr Mangos further explained that he had been unsuccessful with his first attempt to fend CHOSEN MAJOR off his sulky before making contact with his right forearm on that runner's chest at the second attempt and was adamant that no contact had been made to CHOSEN MAJOR with his whip. After viewing the replays and considering the evidence Stewards took the matter no further other than to note the circumstances.
