Permission was given for Lightonthewing (IRE) to go early to post.
Having reviewed recordings of the false start, the Starters were satisfied that no riders should be reported for contravening the starting procedures.
The apparent improvement in form of the winner, Lightonthewing (IRE), which had never previously been placed, was considered.
Susan Gardner’s comments that the gelding's jumping has improved with experience and Lightonthewing (IRE) had appeared to be suited by being allowed to race prominently on this occasion, was noted.
Following the race, Kevin Jones reported that he pulled up Silver Nickel (IRE) as he thought the gelding was lame, however Silver Nickel (IRE) returned sound.
Mitchell Bastyan reported that Megaudais Speed (FR), placed second, hung violently left-handed.
