No Horse Date Venue Comments
1 MANHATTAN MIST 14/02/2020 Canterbury Park Had some difficulty obtaining clear running rounding the home turn and then laid in under pressure in the early part of the straight.

When questioned re tactics which resulted in mnt settling at rear of field, rdr std he was given no specific instructions and after bumping heavily on jumping and when another rnr progressed forward to his outside, he believed it was best to restrain mnt to a trailing position closer to rail at rear of field. Added mnt only possesses a short sprint and if pressured in early stages to work forward into a prominent position this would impact upon its capacity to finish race off.
