Starperfectfails to respond

Jockey M Kellady (above) was questioned regarding the run of beaten favourite STARPERFECT in Race 3 on Friday night.

He said that the gelding travelled well in the early and middle stages.

However, after being crossed by other runners shortly after passing the 800m mark, the gelding appeared to lose interest and failed to respond despite being placed under pressure.

His explanation was noted.
