Having started as a very firm favourite, and with me getting a decent gate draw for a change, Rush Attack was more than a bit disappointing only picking up fourth place. Tosaki-kun said the horse wasn't particularly well-balanced, and it's a damned shame that a golden opportunity was wasted - at 0.5 seconds off the pace, it was Rush Attack's worst performance to date. In reality, the positioning throughout the race was far from ideal, with Rush penned-in from the second corner onwards! At least Kalliopeia was sixth, nearly fifth, in a good debut, although it hardly makes up for missing out on what should have been an easy win on paper.
