KRUIZR - Amateur driver W Parsons was questioned regarding the tactics he adopted from the 800 metres where he failed to improve his position in the three wide line when the opportunity was presented. Mr Parsons explained that he was reluctant to follow DEN'S LEGACY as he felt that runner was not likely to advance his position far into the race. He added that his runner had recently been racing in a less than genuine manner when in tight quarters and was mindful of putting him into a position where he would have to jostle to hold his place. Trainer M House advised that it was his intention to make gear alterations in an attempt to have the horse travel better during the middle stages. After considering the submissions Stewards accepted his explanation. Driver W Parsons admitted a breach of Rule 869(2) in that he used his whip on more occasions than permitted by Clause (b) of the Use of Whip Regulations and was fined $200.

Raced fiercely through the middle stages and when racing past the 900 metres could no longer be restrained by driver S Ottley with the mare making contact with the sulky of SECRET BET, galloping in consequence and shifting outwards onto the wheel of DOITSON and briefly blundering to the track shortly after. A post-race veterinary examination revealed a laceration to the right hock and surrounding gravel abrasion requiring treatment. Stood down pending a veterinary clearance and then one satisfactory trial.

FUN IN THE DARK - hung inwards near the 200 metres and became awkwardly placed close to the sulky of SMARTER VC. Junior Driver M Hurrell when spoken to regarding the manner he drove around the final bend when SMARTER VC was able to improve to his inside. He advised that the mare was under pressure and hung outwards when passing roughly and had difficulty steering. Mr Hurrell was reminded of his obligations not to drive in a manner which leaves himself open to query.
