- Stewards Report
On the bend, turning into the home straight, Cheating Jack (FR), placed sixth, hung right-handed off the rail at the same time as Tre A Peni (GB), placed fifth, edged slightly-left handed causing the weakening Espinator (FR), unplaced, to briefly be short of room, but after viewing a recording of the incident it was found that no riding offence was involved, and it had not improved the placing of any runner.
The apparent improvement in form of the winner, Fine By Me (IRE), which had never previously been placed, was considered.
The representative of Nigel Twiston-Davies stated that the gelding had benefited from break of 175 days and a step up in trip from 2 miles to 2 miles 7 furlongs.
His explanation was noted and the gelding was routine tested.
Time 5m. 43.40 secs, which is 4.04 secs faster than the course average on today's going
