- Stewards Report
Permission was given for ARTHUR’S REALM (IRE) to be mounted in the chute and to wear a red hood to the start; for Makeen (GB) and Substantial (GB) to go early to post and Substantial (GB) wore earplugs which were removed at the start.
Approximately 1 furlong out, ARTHUR’S REALM (IRE), placed second, shifted left before being quickly corrected by its rider, carrying Pisanello (IRE), placed third, 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 ARTHUR’S REALM (IRE).
The performance of Gweedore (GB), which finished unplaced, was considered.
Katie Scott could offer no explanation for the gelding’s performance.
Following the race, Jamie Spencer reported that approximately 1 furlong after the start, Substantial (GB), unplaced, clipped heels when the pace was steadied, and the Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of the gelding during routine testing revealed it to have lost its left fore shoe.
