- Stewards Report
An enquiry was held to establish the placings in this race due to all riders, except for Jack Tudor, the rider of Dharma Rain (IRE), and Sean Houlihan, the rider of Bluebell Sally, which was pulled up earlier in the race, by-passing the third flight from home on the final circuit.
They interviewed Jeremiah McGrath, the rider of Kentford Mallard (GB), Jack Tudor, the rider of Dharma Rain (IRE), Brendan Powell, the rider of Kalaya (IRE), Page Fuller, the rider of Queen Among Kings (IRE), Lucy Gardner, the rider of Havacuppa (GB), Harry Reed, the rider of Just Henny (GB), Tabitha Worsley, the rider of Lucky Circle (GB), and Niall Houlihan, the rider of Remember Me Well (IRE), the Clerk of the Course, and the Racecourse Head Groundsman and an additional member of the groundstaff.
Having heard all the evidence and viewed recordings of the incident, the Stewards revised the placings as follows: 1st Dharma Rain (IRE), all other runners were disqualified for taking the wrong course, under Rule (F) 37.
However, taking into account, on this occasion; the poor visibility, and the illusion that the chevrons had been placed in the hurdle – which was caused by the chevrons being carried across the course behind the hurdle, which gave riders’ cause for concern for the safety of all involved – no penalties were imposed on any rider.
They further ordered a report to be forwarded to the Head Office of the British Horseracing Authority.
