Caulfield monitor supervisor Jason Kerr admits he was disillusioned and shocked by the best way the monitor performed on Blue Diamond Stakes day.
Kerr says he is not going to be reinventing the wheel when he prepares the floor for its subsequent main assembly that includes the $5 million All-Star Mile in three weeks.
The one distinction would be the rail place from three metres out to 6 metres.
The monitor for Saturday’s assembly was a speaking level after showing to favour horses near the fence and on the tempo.
“I definitely went into the day considering the monitor was in actually good order after the rain we would had on the Tuesday and Wednesday,” Kerr instructed RSN927 .
“We did not require any irrigation main into the assembly and just about the very last thing we did to the monitor was on the Tuesday once we gave it a lower.
“Then the rain got here and it simply slowly improved. As soon as the rain stopped on the Wednesday it improved into the Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
“I used to be fairly glad the place it sat on Saturday morning however clearly it did not pan out that means.”
Kerr mentioned he determined final Monday to place the rail out from the true place to 3 metres to eradicate a lot of the put on from the Orr Stakes assembly two weeks earlier.
“With the game that we’re, you do have days the place there are causes for monitor bias. Whether or not that be wind or put on on a rail transfer that hasn’t fairly recovered from the earlier assembly however none of these had been vital on the day,” he mentioned.
“However definitely three or 4 of these might have had minor contributions and it is simply added up on the day.
“That is actually the one factor we are able to provide you with. Up and down the monitor yesterday and this morning and definitely there’s nothing even now that stands out that signifies why it raced prefer it did.
“We’ll transfer the rail out to 6 metres for the All-Star Mile assembly and prep it up as we usually do and definitely have the fingers crossed.
“However Caulfield within the 10 years that I have been right here, it is most likely performed that means most likely a handful of occasions. It is simply unlucky that was the case on Saturday.
“We definitely will not be reinventing the wheel so far as preparation goes main into All-Star Mile.”
