Race 5 Kalgoorlie 31-10-20 was such a bad look that stewards opened an inquiry into the race. That was good. What was bad was this bit of the stewards report 

City Star:
Rider advised, when the pace quickened leaving the 800m, in an attempt to improve her mount to close the gap on the leader she was unable to do so despite her efforts and was left flat footed.


The jock on City Star clearly doesn't make a move until the 500m mark. The vision doesn't match the testimony given.

    Any meeting that clashes with a Saturday metro.is known as battlers day----The top three on local jockey premiership. Pateman, Yuill, Ramoly,didn't ride,  Mcnaught who i imagine would be next. also didn't ride. Also the rider H.Watson (4kgs) was having. her 23rd ride in a race with 15 of those rides taking place at leonora,laverton, leinster where you learn how not to get a mouthful of red dirt. 

     The other 4kg apprentice in race A.Johnston was having her 4th ride in a race on bentlys brother whos previous best position at kalg. was 6th  in  four runs. Staralign  only 7 runs prior in kalg. was ridden by yuill or pateman.this day 3kg app  lobbed 1+1 great piece of .riding until he couldn't get out ---Sigil has had 14 starts further then 1400 no wins.
     watching the replay she was having trouble dealing with city star  at the 1000m, maybe it couldn't repay the oxygen debt when they quickened after pulling, and it took it a extra 50 to be able to.  it was having its 21st at track having registered no wins.


     By all means ask questions but your heading is harsh. Takes most good app.over 300 rides to give you a accurate from start to finish  assessment were they lobbed in the run,& what transpired.unfortunate there is some never graduate to that stage-& just giveup,  Faithfull was on the noted front-runner has had over 3,000 race rides. 340 wins. was the smartest battler. in that particular race.
     
    Stewards ask  questions app.who are terrified until they understand  that part of industry... Remmeber a apprentice fired in a protest, as he was run off the track, Head steward asked him how much ground did it cost him he said  a neck- the margin at the judge was a 3/4 length. The protest was still upheld.

    I'm not here to debate the abilities of the riders. I simply can't cop it when riders say something that the video doesn't support. 
     when the pace quickened leaving the 800m, in an attempt to improve her mount to close the gap on the leader she was unable to do so despite her efforts and was left flat footed.
     
    The truth is she made zero effort until the 500m. It is so obvious.
