- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Six Strings (GB) to be mounted in the chute and go early to post.
Laura Pearson, the rider of Young John (IRE), drawn 2, was slow to remove the blindfold, resulting in the gelding being slowly away.
Pearson’s explanation that the blindfold became stuck on the bridle and took two attempts to remove was noted.
Following the race, Cam Hardie reported that Six Strings (GB), placed fifth, ran too free in the early stages and Ray Dawson reported that Frow (IRE), placed third, hung right-handed.
