- Stewards Report
An enquiry was held to consider the unruly behaviour of Humaniste (IRE) which had been very reluctant to go to post and then refused to race.
Joe Tickle was interviewed and shown recordings of the incident.
As the gelding had also refused to race on 28 October 2021 and 26 December 2021, the matter was referred to the Head Office of the British Horseracing Authority.
Jumping the third last, Applesandpierres (IRE), placed second, jumped left-handed tightening Jakamani (GB), placed fifth, and Birds Of Prey (IRE), placed fourth, for room, 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 Applesandpierres (IRE).
The Stewards noted that Samba Dancer (FR), placed sixth, ridden by Miss Fern O'Brien, jumped awkwardly over the second and third hurdles causing Miss O'Brien to momentarily lose her irons.
Following the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that Samba Dancer (FR), unplaced, had lost its right fore shoe.
