CRAIGLEA PIXIE and MISS MOOKYCHICK raced wide in the early stages.
The declaration of correct weight was delayed to allow the trainer of OAKMANTEL, Mr K. Munce and jockey R. Hancock, to view the photo finish of the race as they believed they had past the post in second position.

Trainer T. Crane reported to stewards following today's performance of KIMSHA that he would be discussing the immediate racing future of the mare with connections and would be recommending that she be retired from racing.
Jockey R. Hancock pleaded guilty to a charge under AR137(b) of failing to ride OAKMANTEL out to the finish line. Jockey Hancock was issued with a $700 fine, in assessing penalty stewards were of the view that his actions had resulted in OAKMANTEL not finishing in second position.

Appo's license to ride in races was suspended for a period of 6 meetings to commence at midnight October 1 and to finish at midnight October 12.
Leaving the 800m YOU'LL HAVE TO (D. Gill) began to hang out rounding the turn and had to be checked and shift out around the heels of MIRROR MAN (App B-R. Derbyshire).

Jockey Gill stated that following this incident YOU'LL HAVE TO hung out badly and was unable to be tested and was pulled up out of the race near the 400m. Trainer B. Gill later reported to stewards that the gelding was distressed immediately after the race but in the days following had recovered well and he was planning to continue with the gelding's current preparation. Stewards advised Mr Gill that YOU'LL HAVE TO would be required to trial to stewards satisfaction prior to its next race start.
Jockey L. Appo reported to stewards that the saddle shifted on CRYSTAL MATES shortly after the start.
The rider of CRAIGLEA ENCORE, C. Kearney, reported to stewards that he was pleased with the way the filly worked to the line and in his opinion she would be better suited in races of a distance further than today's event.
