HAN SOLO (M Kellady) shifted outwards after jumping away awkwardly and
in so doing, severely crowded BLACK LABEL (O Chavez) out onto RISING
TIDE (A Munro), SAFFIR (B Vorster) and MR SPIELBERG (D Beasley).
SO SIMPLE (S John), which jumped away awkwardly, made contact with
SINGSURAT (CW Brown) shortly after the start.
Near the 1400m, ZENZERO (M Nunes) eased when racing tight to the inside
of YELLOW BIRD and SAFFIR.
Passing the 800m, SAFFIR and YELLOW BIRD brushed on a number of

Approaching the 400m, MR SPIELBERG was disappointed for a run between
SO SIMPLE, which was giving ground and SAFFIR, which rolled outwards.
MR SPIELBERG was again disappointed for a run passing the 200m between

Jockey S John, when questioned regarding the run of SO SIMPLE, stated that
he was instructed to race in a forward position where possible. He further
stated that he was caught wide in the early stages and elected to go forward
obtaining a position to the outside of HAN SOLO entering the backstraight.
He was then able to reach the lead but was unable to cross to the fence as
HAN SOLO was still racing three quarters of a length back to his inside. As
he had worked hard early, he elected not to place his mount under further
pressure and to race one off the fence. SO SIMPLE then disappointed and
gave ground quickly in the straight when placed under pressure. His
explanation was noted.
