Verdict

William Buick: "He's tough, isn't he? He stayed well, and although he's still immature, he handled the track."

Mark Johnston: "He was slowly away, again, and on top of that Joe was annoyed with himself for going up the rail. He didn't get a clear run and he'd probably be better with ease in the ground. I'd say he'll almost certainly go to Doncaster along with Hartnell."
