SUPER RED DRAGON was crowded for room on jumping between MILLENNIUM FALCON and TAKE WHAT YOU NEED which shifted in. After this, TAKE WHAT YOU NEED and SUPER RED DRAGON were shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.
From the outside barriers, MOON PEAKS, DR WINNING and JUDY’S STAR were also all shifted across behind runners in the early stages to obtain a position closer to the rail.
Making the turn after the 900 Metres, ISLAND SURPRISE got its head on the side and hung out.
Approaching and passing the 800 Metres, VICTORY SCHOLARS was steadied away from the heels of GOOD NEWS which when crossing VICTORY SCHOLARS was being steadied. C Schofield was reprimanded and told to ensure that he is properly clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Near the 550 Metres, VICTORY SCHOLARS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PARTY WARRIOR when racing tight inside GOOD NEWS.
