Prior to the running of Race 8, the going was upgraded to yielding.
SIMPLY THE BEST (D Bonilla) was difficult to be loaded into the barrier and

Jockey Bonilla, when questioned regarding the performance of SIMPLY THE
BEST, stated that the gelding travelled well in the early stages but after
commencing the turn passing the 1000m, SIMPLY THE BEST changed strides
and in his opinion, lost its action behind. As he was concerned with the well
being of the gelding, he eased it out of the event. His explanation was
noted. Jockey Bonilla, the rider of SIMPLY THE BEST, reported that his horse
returned lame. A subsequent veterinary examination revealed no apparent
abnormality. SIMPLY THE BEST, which was difficult to be loaded and raced
poorly, will be required to pass a 1000m gallop trial from the barrier and a
veterinary examination prior to being declared to race again.
