- Stewards Report
Approaching the final flight, Supreme Yeats (IRE), placed third, shifted sharply right-handed despite its riders’ best efforts to quickly correct the gelding, causing the rider of Just Once (GB), placed second, to have to take a check, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.
The performance of Hereia (IRE), which started second-favourite and finished seventh, beaten by 55¾ lengths, was considered.
It was noted that Neil Mulholland could offer no explanation for the gelding’s performance on this occasion and the Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of Hereia (IRE) failed to reveal any abnormalities other than the gelding lost its left-fore shoe.
Time 5m. 21.70 secs, which is 10.14 secs slower than the course average on today's going
