Lady Cornelia - As there was no other suitable rider available, Stewards permitted M Keenan to ride the filly one kilo overweight (64kg). Performed below market expectations.

Molly Dook Near the 900m was tightened for room between Gorokan Express and Bimmies Twin (G Brunsdon) which shifted in and away from Nankervis. Near the 500m was tightened for room to the inside of Bimmies Twin which when weakening shifted in. G Brunsdon was notified to exercise greater care in similar circumstances.

Gorokan Express Near the 900m was eased when tightened for room to the inside of Molly Dook. Lay in under pressure near the 100m and in doing so had to be steadied off the heels of Nankervis.
