Race Comments

Race 1   CATERING SOUTH CANTERBURY AMATEUR DRIVERS MOBILE PACE
THE NAENAE EXPRESS - received midrace pressure when leading. Weakened over the concluding stages.
WEE RING THE CHANGES - broke in the score up and was out of position at the start before trailing the field throughout. A warning was placed on the barrier record of the gelding.
DISMARA - raced three wide early. Over-raced middle stages.
DREAMINSOVER - raced three wide early stages until reaching the parked position at the 1900 metres. Weakened from the 600 metres. Driver C Negus (assisted by B Negus) was questioned regarding the manner in which she drove when challenging for the lead for a considerable distance during the middle stages before weakening. After considering her explanation, Stewards issued a charge under Rule 868(2) alleging that Mrs Negus had failed to take all reasonable and permissible measures between the 1900 metres and the 1000 metres to ensure her runner was given full opportunity to win or obtain the best possible finishing position by persisting with the challenge for the lead which proved to be to the detriment of her gelding's chances. The Adjudicative Committee adjourned the matter sine die.
