- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Texting (GB) to wear a hood in the Parade Ring only and for Mid Winster (GB) to go early to post.
Approaching the final furlong, Marly (FR), placed fourth, edged quickly left onto Shallow Hal (GB), unplaced, which in turn carried Highly Sprung (IRE), unplaced, marginally off its intended line, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved and that it had not improved the placing of Marly (FR).
Inside the final furlong, the winner, Gunmetal (IRE), edged left at the same time as Lincoln Park (GB), unplaced, edged right causing Texting (GB), unplaced, to be slightly checked, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved and that it had not improved the placing of Gunmetal (IRE).
An enquiry was held to consider the placings in this race after interference on the run to the line involving the winner, Gunmetal (IRE), ridden by Connor Beasley and Lexington Dash (FR), placed second, ridden by Thore Hammer Hansen.
The Stewards considered that the interference had not improved Gunmetal (IRE)’s placing as Lexington Dash (FR) lost no momentum and was always being held at the line to be beaten by a short head.
Beasley was cautioned for careless riding as he allowed his mount to drift left taking Lexington Dash (FR) slightly off its intended line.
