- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Spanish Archer (FR) to go early to post.
The Stewards held an enquiry to consider why Mark Crehan, the rider of Aerion Power (IRE), which finished second, beaten by a neck, had appeared to stop riding half a furlong out.
Having heard his evidence and viewed recordings of the race, they found he had mistaken the ½ furlong marker for the winning post and as such had stopped riding prematurely.
Crehan was found in breach of Rule (F)37 and guilty of failing to ride out on a horse that would have finished first and was suspended for 28 days.
Following the race, Daniel Muscutt reported that Spanish Archer (FR), placed third, was slowly away and Dane O’Neill reported that Montather (IRE), which started favourite and finished fifth, beaten by 8¾ lengths, ran too free.
Time 2m. 10.70 secs, which is 28.63 secs faster than the course average on today's going
