- Stewards Report
An enquiry was held to consider the placings in this race after interference inside the final furlong when the winner, Home City (IRE), ridden Louis Steward, interfered with Tropez Power (IRE), placed second, ridden by Silvestre de Sousa.
The Stewards considered that the interference had improved Home City (IRE)’s placing as Tropez Power (IRE) had been carried across the track for approximately a furlong by Home City (IRE), as well as being given a bump by the colt on the run to the line, losing more ground than the neck Tropez Power (IRE) was beaten by.
The Stewards revised the placings as follows: First: Tropez Power (IRE), Second: Home City (IRE), Third: Mystery Monarch (GB), Fourth: Dark Swansong (IRE).
Steward was suspended for 4 days for careless riding as allowed his mount to drift left- handed for a considerable distance without sufficient correction carrying Tropez Power (IRE) off its intended line.
Following the race, Oisin Murphy reported that Kingofhell (IRE), unplaced, as slowly away and David Egan reported that Olivetti (GB), unplaced, was slowly away.
Time 1m. 11.44 secs, which is 1.29 secs faster than the course average on today's going
