- Stewards Report
Rounding the final bend, Nothing Man (IRE), placed fourth, lugged slightly right-handed, causing the winner, Guetapan Collonges (FR), and Maliboo (IRE), placed third, to also shift right-handed, thereby causing Mandalayan (IRE), unplaced, to have to be checked and lose its action, but after viewing a recording of the incident it was found that no riding offence was involved.
The apparent improvement in form of the winner, Guetapan Collonges (FR), which had never previously been placed, was considered.
Charlie Longsdon’s comments that the gelding appeared to benefit from the step up in trip from 1 mile and 7½ furlongs to 2 miles and 4½ furlongs and a drop in grade from a Class 4 to a Class 5 on this occasion, were noted.
Guetapan Collonges (FR) was routine tested.
Following the race, Page Fuller reported that Gabriel Oats (GB), unplaced, hung right-handed.
