- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Act Of Wisdom (IRE), Francesco Guardi (IRE), Just Fine (IRE), and Too Friendly (GB), to all wear a red hood to the start.
The raceday privilege request in relation to Just Fine (IRE), trained by Sir Michael Stoute, was late being submitted.
Stoute was warned as to his responsibility to ensure that all raceday privilege requests are submitted by 1pm on the day before racing.
An enquiry was held to consider interference in this race following interference approximately 1½ furlongs out when the winner, Surefire (GB), ridden by Hector Crouch, interfered with Nagano (GB), unplaced, ridden by David Egan.
Crouch was suspended for 3 days for careless riding for allowing his mount to shift right- handed away for the whip without timely correction, causing Nagano (GB) to be taken notably off its intended line.
Approaching the final furlong, Parachute (GB), placed third, shifted slightly left-handed away from the whip which resulted in Siskany (GB), placed fourth, ducking sharply left-handed making contact with and carrying Nagano (GB), unplaced, and the winner, Surefire (GB), off their intended lines.
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 horse.
On the run to the line, Sir Lamorak (IRE), placed second, which was hanging despite the rider’s best efforts, shifted right-handed resulting in Military Mission (IRE), unplaced, being carried off its intended line.
After viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved and it had not improved the placing of Sir Lamorak (IRE).
