The Stewards requested a report from Robert Tyner, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Mount Brandon, placed second, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that his charge is a very ordinary sort and despite several runs, had failed to register a win. He added his charge appears to have a liking for this right handed track, having finished second in this race last year and felt this may have brought about the apparent improvement in form. Having considered the report, the Stewards noted the explanation offered.
