Race 1 RITA AND COL MADDEN MAIDEN PLATE - 1000 metres:

Correct weight was delayed to allow C Pace, rider of Stormus (2nd Placegetter), and M Corbisiero rider of Kunzite (3rd Placegetter) the opportunity to observe the stewards patrol footage with the view of lodging an objection. After viewing such films both riders did not wish to proceed with any objections and correct weight was declared.
