WOODLEA BEAVER - held up final bend. Again held up late in the run home. Stewards questioned driver M Williamson regarding his decision to shift inwards and race against the pylons near the 750 metres when until that time he had been following the well supported ZIA BROMAC. Mr Williamson explained that the parked ROSIES TERROR was being urged along by its driver and the two wide line had begun to lose ground on the leaders. He said that because of this he expected both LIL RIPPER and OPPORTUNITY KNOX to shift outwards on the bend and if he had of improved wide believed he would be taken extremely wide. For this reason he thought his best chance was an inside passage however this had not eventuated when ROSIES TERROR had held its position among the field longer than he anticipated. Stewards deemed his explanation to be reasonable in the circumstances and took the matter no further.

VESNINA - fractious prior to the start and became entangled in the barrier strand with the field being turned away to reassemble. Reared as the start was effected and was slow to begin. A warning was placed on the barrier record of the mare. Paced roughly throughout the home straight. Junior driver Z Meredith (assisted by J Cox) admitted driving carelessly near the 500 metres after allowing his horse to strike the sulky wheel of SKIDADDLE which punctured. After viewing the films and hearing penalty submissions the Adjudicative Committee imposed a fine of $250.

VESNINA - paced roughly throughout the run home. Stewards questioned driver J Dunn regarding the manner he drove on the first bend when ASHES OF DESIRE was able to shift inwards to the trailing position. Mr Dunn explained that as evidenced through the mare's gait in the run home when pressured she was prone to racing roughly so felt it in his best interests not to pressure her at this stage.
