Befitting Jumped away awkwardly and lost considerable ground (4L).

Staretto Slow to begin. Rider M. Keenan, when questioned as to the reason he did not improve his position in the back straight when the opportunity to do so was available, stated that he had been instructed to ride the horse in a rearward position and as a result did not make his move until near the 400m, resulting in the horse making up a moderate amount of ground in the straight. He further added that in retrospect, he should have done more to position the mare closer to the rest of the field, sooner than he did on this occasion. Stewards noted M. Keenans explanation.
