Jumping the first hurdle, Fabulous Saga (FR), which was pulled up, jumped right-handed into the path of Folcano (FR), causing the gelding to fall and Fabulous Saga (FR) to become severely unbalanced.
This in turn resulted in interference to First Lord De Cuet (FR), unplaced, and Commandingpresence (IRE), unplaced, and further caused Conor McNamara, the rider of Gabynako (FR), to be unseated, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.
Approaching the top of the hill, Floueur (FR), placed third, ridden by Paul O’Brien, became tight for room when racing awkwardly between Amour de Nuit (IRE), unplaced, and Commandingpresence (IRE), unplaced, causing O’Brien to ease momentarily, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.
Following the race, Oakley Brown reported that Fire Attack (IRE), which was pulled up, ran too free and hung badly right-handed and the Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of the gelding failed to reveal any abnormalities.
The Veterinary Officer also reported that Eglantine Du Seuil (FR), unplaced, had lost its left fore shoe.
