- Stewards Report
An enquiry was held to consider the placings in this race after interference on the run to the line when the winner, Puzzle Cache (GB), ridden by Charlie Hammond, interfered with Follow That (GB), placed second, ridden by Aidan Coleman.
The Stewards considered that the interference had not improved Puzzle Cache (GB)’s placing as Puzzle Cache (GB) had come from behind Follow That (GB) and that mare appeared to lose little momentum as a result of the interference, with Coleman never having to stop riding, before being beaten a neck.
The interference was found to be accidental as Puzzle Cache (GB) had shifted sharply left- handed away from the whip before being quickly corrected by Hammond.
Following the race, Fergus Gillard reported that Shoot To Fame (IRE), unplaced, ran green.
Time 6m. 38.10 secs, which is 1.49 secs slower than the course average on today's going
