Default Two missed approaches 16R - QF448/VZB

Just spotted a go around from my office in North Sydney. FR24 showed the aircraft as VZB operating QF448 from YMML and that was the second missed approach.

Looks like the AC has followed the missed approach on the second attempt and is currently holding off the RNP.

Anyone got ATC or comms as to why?

It didn’t hold off the RNP.

It turned left onto a downwind for 16R.

My best guess, and only a guess whilst looking at FR24 is the spacing was too tight the second time. Hence the second go around.
