The Panel of Stewards also questioned Trainer F Maynard, the trainer of SUNTZU as to the gelding’s improved performance today.  He explained that SUNTZU had suffered interference at its previous start and he felt that the gelding is better-suited on a straight course and expected to run a good race.  His explanations were noted.
