Miss Delighted (IRE) wore earplugs throughout.
Rounding the bend out of the home straight on the final circuit, Rosy World (GB), unplaced, shifted slightly right causing Precious Eleanor (FR), placed second, and Against All Odds (FR), which was pulled up, to become short of room, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.
Approaching the second last hurdle, Gazette Bourgeoise (FR), placed third, shifted slightly right giving Hawthorn Cottage (IRE), placed fifth, a slight bump, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved and that it had not improved the placing of Gazette Bourgeoise (FR).
The apparent improvement in form of the winner, Blarney Bateleur (IRE), which had never previously been placed, was considered.
Andy Irvine’s comments that the mare was better suited by the less testing conditions on this occasion in her first handicap, in what he considers to be a weak race, was noted.
