RACE 3 - TROBIS MAIDEN PLTE 1200M

Stewards considered an objection lodged by jockey J Todd, rider of the second placed CRESTA CHROME against the winner BE COOL YOLANDER (R Vigar) alleging interference over the concluding stages. Whist Stewards were of the opinion that BE COOL YOLANDER did shift inwards in the run to the finish resulting in contact between both runners, they were not satisfied that the interference had a material effect on the finish and the protest was therefore dismissed.  

CRESTA CHROME (J Todd) – Bumped over the concluding stages.

BELLA GIULIETTA (Roger Booth) – Stood flat footed at the start and lost ground.

BE COOL YOLANDER (R Vigar) – Raced wide on straightening. Shifted in under pressure in the run to the finish and bumped with another runner over the concluding stages.
