- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Creek Harbour (IRE) and Grisons (FR) to go early to post.
The Starter reported that Wotadoll (GB) was unruly in the stalls.
Mike Murphy was informed that the mare could not run until the day after passing a stalls test.
An enquiry was held into the start and the possible withdrawal of Wotadoll (GB), ridden by Martin Dwyer.
The rider and the Starter were interviewed and shown recordings of the start.
It was found that Wotadoll (GB) was deemed not to have started as the mare had reared and unseated the rider fractionally before the stalls opened and therefore Wotadoll (GB) was withdrawn.
An enquiry was held to consider interference inside the final furlong involving Black Isle Boy (IRE), unplaced, ridden by Harry Bentley, Real Estate (IRE), placed sixth, ridden by Callum Shepherd, Three Card Trick (GB), placed third, ridden by Jamie Spencer and Creek Harbour (IRE), placed seventh ridden by William Carver.
The interference was found to be accidental as Three Card Trick (GB), drifted quickly left-handed at the same time as Real Estate (IRE), went for a run to his inside, resulting in Shepherd having to take a slight check and making contact with Black Isle Boy (IRE) who also had to take a slight check, which in turn gave a bump to Creek Harbour (IRE) on his inside.
Following the race, Dougie Costello reported that Faraasah (IRE), which finished last of the eleven runners, hung right-handed turning in and Callum Shepherd reported that Real Estate (IRE), placed sixth, was denied a clear run.
William Cox reported that Grisons (FR), placed second, fly leapt leaving the stalls and Darragh Keenan reported that Kingsley Klarion (IRE), placed eighth, was denied a clear run.
