- Stewards Report
The Crooner (FR) was kicked by another runner at the Start.
Having been examined by the Veterinary Surgeon the gelding was deemed fit to race.
Approximately ½ furlong out, the winner, Cheque En Blanc (FR), lugged right giving The Crooner (FR), placed second, a slight bump and shifting the gelding off its intended line, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved and that it had not improved the placing of Cheque En Blanc (FR).
Hugh Nugent, the rider of The Crooner (FR), placed second, was suspended for 2 days for using his whip above the permitted level from approaching 2 fences out.
Following the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that Lamanver Bel Ami (GB), placed seventh, and Danseur Du Large (FR), placed third, had both lost their left fore shoe.
