- Stewards Report
Tim Easterby had obtained prior permission from the BHA to run BOLLN JOAN partially shod.
Skycutter (FR) wore earplugs in the preliminaries which were removed at the start.
Tilsitt (FR) spread its right-fore plate and was reshod prior to going to the start.
Approximately 2½ furlongs out, The Flying Ginger (IRE), unplaced, hung left-handed when racing tight to the inside of Last Look (IRE), placed third, and crowded Bollin Joan (GB), unplaced, for racing room which in turn slightly inconvenienced Society Red (GB), unplaced, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.
An enquiry was held to consider interference 1½ furlongs out involving Baryshnikov (GB), unplaced, ridden by Connor Beasley, Possible Man (GB), unplaced, ridden by Silvestre De Sousa, Jean Baptiste (IRE), unplaced, ridden by Aled Beech and Society Red (GB), unplaced, ridden by Tony Hamilton.
The interference was found to be accidental as Beasley had manoeuvred Baryshnikov (GB) right-handed when initially clear of De Sousa, however Possible Man (GB) had then shied away independently and tightened Jean Baptiste (IRE) for room onto a weakening Society Red (GB) which was checked.
Following the race, Jack Mitchell reported that Man Of The Night (FR), unplaced, ran too freely and Neil Callan reported that The Flying Ginger stopped quickly; the Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of the filly failed to reveal any abnormalities.
