CoC quote = " Lower bend dolled out 5 yards from the 6 furlong marker to the winning post. Increasing race distances to races using that bend by 15 yards".
Strong to Stiff Westerly Wind = 3/4+ Headwind in the HS.
=== Pre Race ===
Previous race on Card with a just below average finishing sectional and 5 of the first 6 home in 6th or further back in a big field. Pace not looking strong here but hold up horses again previaling. Headwind seems a real factor on the day. Beaverbrook getting a reasonably soft time in the lead but only a brief effort before fading back, Strong Challenge perhaps running too freely &
How did Palawanend up racing down the Stands Rail? By Design, or not?
