- Stewards Report
An enquiry was held to consider the placings in this race after interference in the final furlong, when the winner Storm Melody (GB), ridden by Franny Norton, interfered with Ancient Astronaut (GB), placed second, ridden by Phil Dennis.
The Stewards considered that the interference had not improved the placing of Storm Melody (GB) as Ancient Astronaut (GB) lost no momentum to be beaten a neck at the line.
Norton was suspended for 2 days for careless riding as he had allowed his mount to drift left-handed without sufficient correction, causing Ancient Astronaut (GB) to be initially intimidated off its intended line and then to be crowded for room on the rail.
Time 1m. 15.30 secs, which is 0.91 secs slower than the course average on today's going
