Race 7, Horse – 10. Feelin The Love (NZ) (Pakenham 25/1/17): Commenced awkwardly. When being restrained passing the 1000m, got its head up. Raced wide without cover from the 800m.
Race 9, Horse – 3. Dissolute (Moonee Valley 10/2/17): Under pressure from the 400m before being eased down from the entrance to the straight.
