- Stewards Report
The Starter reported that Tom Marquand, the rider of Ilhabela Fact (GB) had originally entered the wrong stall.
The rider and Starter were interviewed and shown recordings of the incident.
The rider was cautioned.
An enquiry was held to consider the placings in this race after interference inside the final furlong when the winner, Imperium (IRE), ridden by Jason Watson, interfered with Natty Night (GB), placed second, ridden by Martin Dwyer.
The Stewards considered that the interference had not improved Imperium (IRE)’s placing as Natty Night (GB) appeared to lose little momentum and appeared to be held by Imperium (IRE) on the run to the line with the distance between both runners being a head.
It was also found that on the run to the line Natty Night (GB) had in turn shifted right bumping Imperium (IRE).
The interference was found to be accidental as Imperium (IRE) rolled left having been shown the whip before quickly being corrected by Watson.
Time 2m. 32.22 secs, which is 1.10 secs faster than the course average on today's going
