- Stewards Report
Permission was given for both Tiberio Smile (GB) and HILARY’S BOY to wear red hoods to the start.
Tiberio Smile (GB), trained by Nigel Tinkler, did not enter the Parade Ring due to being reshod.
Inside the final furlong, the winner, Hurt You Never (IRE), edged right carrying Tiberio Smile (GB), placed fourth, slightly off its intended line at the same time as Almodovar Del Rio (IRE), placed second, edged left causing HILARY’S BOY, placed fifth, to be briefly short of room.
However, 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 any horse.
Morgan Cole, the rider of Almodovar Del Rio (IRE), placed second, was suspended for 2 days for using her whip above the permitted level from 2 furlongs out.
Being a 7lb claiming apprentice, Cole was offered the opportunity to be accompanied in the enquiry, but declined.
Following the race, Laura Coughlan reported that the winner, Hurt You Never (IRE), lugged right inside the final furlong and Ben Robinson reported that Two Worlds Collide (GB), unplaced, stopped quickly and the Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of the filly failed to reveal any abnormalities.
