General

Stewards inquired into the reasons why ANOTHER VINNIE (Aaron Beckett) was severely checked racing out of the back straight on the final occasion.  It was established that ANOTHER VINNIE who was racing to the inside had shifted up the track to oblige SOHO LENNON (Gary Hall Jnr) wider and as a result the wheels of both of those runner became engaged for the majority of the back straight.  As the wheels disengaged ANOTHER VINNIE broke gait.  No blame could be given to any driver, other than to record the circumstances.
