Driver K Barclay (WATTLEBANK STAR) defended a charge alleging that she drove carelessly near the 1500 metres when shifting ground crowding the racing room of the inside NUTCRACKER (C Ferguson) down onto EMMA STONE (K Tomlinson) which made contact with track markers and struck the sulky wheel of NUTCRACKER resulting in the tyre being punctured and coming off the rim.
