Motts Cross (IRE), trained by Chris Down, had arrived in the Parade Ring without its declared cheekpieces, which were then located and fitted on the gelding before going to the start.
After being interviewed, Down was cautioned.
The apparent improvement in form of the winner, Pour Une Raison (FR), which had never previously been placed, was considered.
Richard Mitchell was interviewed.
His comments that Pour Une Raison (FR) had been hampered approaching the first flight on its previous run and was never travelling thereafter, whereas on this occasion the gelding had an uninterrupted run was noted.
Pour Une Raison (FR) was routine tested.
Following the race, Page Fuller reported that Dream De Dream (IRE), which was pulled up, stopped quickly.
