OFFTHEBENCH - driver B Laughton reported the gelding had hung from the 1000 metres. Held up rounding the final bend.

Driver A Stewart was spoken to and issued with a warning for failing to ensure her runner did not shift out on the final bend and also in the early stages of the home straight.
CHEAPCHEAP - checked near the 250 metres when CALYPSO ROCK moved outwards and locked wheels.

Race 3   GLEN HILL BUILDERS TROT

A post-race veterinary examination requested by trainer G Smith revealed some mucus present which will be treated in the coming days.

Race 4   BUSH INN TAVERN MOBILE PACE
ITZ THE CON ARTIST - broke and then blundered soon after the start losing ground and hampering NARCISSIST. A warning was placed on the barrier record of the filly. Weakened from the 500 metres.
ANNIE RICHTER - had difficulty obtaining clear racing room in the early and middle stages of the run home. Stewards questioned driver R Close regarding his reason for not utilising the passing lane in the home straight. Mr Close explained the filly had been hanging throughout the race and he believed that to attempt to shift into the passing lane was not in the horse's best interests. He also said he felt RIDE IN A CONCORDE was under some pressure to his outside and he would be able to shift that runner outwards by gaining an advantage however this had not eventuated so his only option was to take his filly inwards in search of clear running. This had taken Mr Close a considerable distance to achieve and even when presented with a clear run said his filly was still reluctant to improve on the inside. After reviewing the films and considering his explanation Stewards took the matter no further.
DOUBT I'M DREAMING - weakened final bend.
LATERINTHEDAY - the rein pricker was removed prior to the start.
BRING BACK LEAH - out of position at the candy pole despite the efforts of driver S Ottley. Raced wide middle stages.

RIDE IN A CONCORDE - hung outwards in the score up and was out of position at the candy pole.
NARCISSIST - hampered by ITZ THE CON ARTIST shortly after the start and raced roughly in consequence. The all clear was delayed until the connections had reviewed the films of the start as to whether NARCISSIST had received interference prior to the start. After reviewing the films the matter was taken no further. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the filly to have sustained a laceration to the left front heel which was treated.
