M ELEVEN

(SU Lim)

Raced wide in the middle stages.

Jockey J Daniel was questioned as to the reason that he did not lead. He advised that the gelding did not have its customary early pace as he believed it would lead easily. It was inclined to lift its head and he had pushed it vigourously, he could only attribute the lack of early pace to the removal of the Blinkers. Trainer S Dunderdale will be questioned related to this issue.
