- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Matthew Flinders (GB), Silent Escape (IRE), and With Thanks (IRE) to all wear a red hood to the start.
Ace Aussie (IRE) arrived at the start with a small amount of blood in its mouth after having bitten its tongue.
Having been examined by the Veterinary Surgeon, the colt was deemed fit to race.
Inside the final furlong, Snash (IRE), unplaced, ducked quickly right-handed giving a bump to Fundamental (GB), unplaced, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.
Inside the final ½ furlong, River Nymph (GB), placed fourth, lugged slightly right-handed causing a weakening Fundamental (GB), unplaced, to become short of room, 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 River Nymph (GB).
Following the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that River Nymph (GB), placed fourth, had been struck into on its left-hind and lost its right-hind shoe.
