Permission was given for Mercian Hymn (GB) to go early to post and wear a red hood to the start.
Approaching the 4 furlong marker, Sunset Memory (GB), placed second, became unbalanced when steadied off the heels of the winner, Serena's Queen (IRE), before lugging left-handed and giving a nudge to Big Little Lie (FR), unplaced, 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 Sunset Memory (GB).
At the 4 furlong marker, a green-running Ower Starlight (GB), unplaced, lugged slightly right-handed onto Mercian Hymn (GB), placed third, but after viewing a recording of the incident it was found that no riding offence was involved.
Following the race, Callum Shepherd reported that Broadway Diva (FR), unplaced, jumped awkwardly from the stalls; Nicola Currie reported that Big Little Lie (FR), unplaced, ran too freely and Kieran Shoemark reported that Afta Party (IRE), unplaced, jumped the crossing and hung left-handed under pressure.
