Thumped a little ? Bumped a little ? How much is enough before ‘feelings’ are included in the opinion ? Who’s going to ask the dog ? Working Dogs Alliance, Australia?
Well looks like feelings were taking into account last nite at sandown, dog wasn't happy because he wasn't in his normal racing pattern and the dog coped a bump and apparently this is an acceptable excuse for not chasing for half a race.
All trainers should be copying and pasting that stewards report for further use when necessary!
