- Stewards Report
Permission was given for I Am A Dreamer (GB) to go early to post, for Smeaton's Light (IRE) to go early and be led to post, for Shoot To Kill (IRE) to be mounted on the course and to wear a red hood which was removed at the start, and for Ancient Times (GB) to wear a red hood which was removed at the start.
Be Proud (IRE), drawn 11, anticipated the start and accelerated the gate at the same moment as the race had been started.
Being satisfied that it was not caused through a faulty action of the starting stalls, no further action was taken.
Approximately 1 furlong out a weakening SMEATON’S LIGHT (IRE), unplaced, lugged quickly right- handed causing Macho Pride (IRE), unplaced, to be hampered, but after viewing a recording of the incident it was found that no riding offence was involved.
Following the race, Daniel Muscutt reported that Shoot To Kill (IRE), placed eighth, hung right-handed, and Paul Mulrennan reported that Be Proud (IRE), placed fifth, stumbled leaving the stalls.
Jack Mitchell reported that Prince Of Bel Lir (IRE), unplaced, was never travelling and the representative of Joseph Parr further reported that the gelding was unsuited by the Good to Firm, Good in places going and would prefer more ease in the ground; the Veterinary Officer reported that a post race examination of Prince Of Bel Lir (IRE) failed to reveal any abnormalities.
Time 1m. 10.96 secs, which is 10.15 secs faster than the course average on today's going
