I notice the stewards asked questions of the rider on Seberate
Seberate - connections advised would be ridden more forward from the wide gate; led. Cory Parish explained that from the wide barrier, he was instructed to allow his mount to stride forward and try and find a position in the leading group. He further explained that after beginning well and being caught extremely wide in the early stages, he allowed his mount to stride and take up the lead rather than be caught wide. Cory Parish stated that although his mount had gone quick in the early stages, he thought that in the middle stages the colt was striding well within itself at a comfortable. He further explained that he then allowed the tempo to increase from the 1200m, however was a beaten horse in the early part of the straight. Co-trainer Tom Dabernig confirmed the instructions, and was of the opinion that Seberate failed to run out the distance. Stewards informed Cory Parish that in their opinion that after using his mount up to gain the lead in the early stages, he should have given his mount a greater opportunity for respite rather than continuing to quicken from the 1200m. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities other than a slow recovery.
I don't see how the trainer could conclude that it didn't run out the distance when it ran like a scalded cat from about the half way mark.
Not one word said about the reversal of form of the winner (integrity anyone?)
I know at Caulfield there was no pace but the way he dropped out was not the run of a horse that was a victim of pace IMO. You look at his last 5 starts the Caulfield failure stands out and looking at the SP others thought the same as me.
