- Stewards Report
Joe Williamson, the rider of Wye Aye (GB), had jumped the third last hurdle backwards prior to the start.
Williamson explained that having overshot the start, the gelding locked on and jumped the hurdle despite his best efforts to prevent Wye Aye (GB) from doing so.
The Stewards accepted his explanation.
Following the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that Grimm Star (FR), which was pulled up before the second last hurdle, finished lame on its right-fore and Bullsempire (IRE), placed eighth, lost its left- hind shoe.
