Richard Kingscote, the rider of Gherkin (GB), drawn 1, was slow to remove the blindfold resulting in his horse being slow to start.
After being interviewed and shown recordings of the incident, Kingscote’s explanation that the blind had become stuck on the gelding’s head and it took a second attempt to remove was noted.
Following the race, Richard Kingscote reported that Gherkin (GB), which started favourite and finished third, was slowly away.
Ronald Harris reported that Glamorous Force (GB), placed seventh, was unsuited by the going, which was officially described as Good, Good to Soft in places on this occasion, and would prefer a faster surface.
