Once loaded in the barriers, TOPSTOCK became fractious, rearing getting its off fore leg caught over the partition. TOPSTOCK was examined by the Club's Veterinary Surgeon and passed fit to take its place in the field. CHANGED RANCHER threw its head in the air near the 1300m, veering outwards bumping I SHALL. MISSHEED raced wide throughout. Near the 700m FREDA'S FOLLY, which was racing tight to the inside of BACK ON SHOW, eased. PREDICT which was following, steadied away from the heels of FREDA'S FOLLY. As a consequence RICH PROSPECT was restrained. PREDICT and BE HONEST bumped at the 400m. When blocked near the 300m, PREDICT shifted outwards bumping BE HONEST. PREDICT was then taken inwards to obtain a clear run.
