Performer Horseform is required to trial to the satisfaction of stewards after his wayward manners saw him duck out sharply and dump Hugh Bowman in last Saturday's Todman Stakes.

Following this requirement Performer has been entered into heat 9 at the rechscheduled Randwick barrier trials to be conducted on Thursday.

Performer's trainer Chris Waller has also advised stewards of his intention is to accept with the filly Unforgotten in the Phar Lap Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday.

As Unforgotten Horseform was found to have cardiac arrhythmia when unplaced in the Surround Stakes at Randwick on March 3 the filly is required to barrier trial to the satisfaction of the stewards before she can race.

Stewards have approved Waller's application to accept for the Phar Lap Stakes on the basis the filly will only be permitted to start should it barrier trial to the stewards satisfaction on Thursday.

Unforgotten has been moved from heat 2 to heat 7 on Thursday to be conducted over 740m.

A veterinary clearance for Unforgotten including an ECG has been received by the stewarda.

Hugh Bowman

Following consultation with Racing NSW's Dr David Duckworth, jockey Hugh Bowman has scheduled an appointment on Wednesday with neurosurgeon Dr Mark Winder to assess his fitness to return to race riding.

Bowman will also be required to complete a satisfactory post injury cognitive test before riding again.

Bowman does not intend to ride again before Saturday pending his clearance.

However he is facing a testing weekend schedule as he is booked to fly to Hong Kong on Saturday night for the ride on Ruthven in Sunday's Hong Kong Derby at Sha Tin.

Hong Kong stewards are aware that Bowman requires a medical clearance after last Saturday's incident.
