The Stewards questioned Jockey J De Souza (SORBETA) related to his riding of SORBETA. He stated SORBETA was unsuited at the 1100M and that he had been instructed to ride in a mid-to-back position. He believed that SORBETA had been out-paced in the early stages and had ridden the gelding vigourously in the straight. Whilst accepting this explanation in part, the Stewards reprimanded Jockey J De Souza for what they considered a lack of vigour and diligence in his ride of SORBETA particularly in the straight and advised that a repetition of a similar manner would lead to a charge being imposed.
