4 KUMASI BOBS Silver Bonus Scheme 14/03/2020 Rosehill Gardens When questioned re riding in early stages and whether there was an opportunity to hold the lead, rdr std with mnt stepping up from 1000m to 1200m today he did not feel it was advantageous to contest the lead, particularly when rdr of another rnr had shown intent to hold that position. Std his decision to do so was also influenced by the fact he felt that rnr would shift wider on straightening which would afford his mnt a run to its inside.
6 RETURN WITH HONOUR BOBS Silver Bonus Scheme 28/03/2020 Rosehill Gardens From wide barrier was shifted behind rnrs. When qst re performance, rdr std from wide barrier he elected to settle mnt back in field where it travelled satisfactorily. From the 600m he commenced to improve when mnt traveled strongly & made up good ground rounding h/turn. Added in straight after initially responding mnt did not, in his opinion, handle soft track conditions particularly when under pressure & this was main reason for poor performance. A post-race vet exam revealed a slow recovery. Tnr agreed with rdr that colt did not appreciate soft track & will try to avoid similar surfaces
