The gelding was running very free when leading in the early stages before seeming to hang badly left-handed on the final bend and into the home straight, finishing fourth of five, beaten by 31 ¾ lengths. Jockey said that the gelding is normally a free-running horse, but on this occasion was running very free in the early stages when in the lead with no company. He added that the gelding began to increasingly hang more left-handed as the race progressed, despite his best efforts, leading to the gelding becoming un-steerable on the final bend and in the home straight, a fact which he had reported to scales) (op 11/8 tchd 7/4)
