- Stewards Report
Persist (GB) wore earplugs which were removed at the start.
Permission was given for Minwah (USA) to wear a hood in the Parade Ring and for Zanbaq (IRE), Mashaaer (IRE), Wilderness Girl (IRE), Gatecrasher Girl (GB), Washraa (IRE), No Nay Nicki (IRE), My Silent Song (GB) and Present Moment (IRE) to wear a red hood to post.
Approximately 2 furlongs out, Washraa (IRE), unplaced, ran onto and clipped the heels of Golden Mayflower (GB), unplaced, and stumbled, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.
The Stewards noted that approaching the final furlong, No Nay Nicki (IRE), unplaced, became short for galloping room.
An enquiry was held to consider the placings in this race after interference on the run to the line when the winner, Heredia (GB), ridden by Sean Levey, interfered with Zanbaq (IRE), placed second, ridden by Jim Crowley.
The Stewards considered that the interference had not improved Heredia (GB)’s placing due to the distance between the runners prior to the incident, as well as the close proximity to the finish line, with the loss of momentum less than the length between them at the finish.
The interference was found to be accidental as Heredia (GB) ducked sharply left-handed, despite Levey’s best efforts, bumping Zanbaq off its intended line.
Time 1m. 39.62 secs, which is 0.48 secs slower than the course average on today's going
