- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Signore Piccolo (GB) to go early to post.
An enquiry was held to consider the unruly behaviour of Signore Piccolo (GB), ridden by Laura Coughlan, which had bolted with Coughlan on the way to post and was withdrawn at 3:07pm.
Lucinda Egerton was interviewed.
As the gelding had also unseated its rider and galloped loose for a considerable distance and was withdrawn at Thirsk on 17 April 2021, Egerton was informed that any future similar behaviour from Signore Piccolo (GB) may result in the horse being reported to the Head Office of the British Horseracing Authority.
Egerton was also informed that the Stewards considered that Signore Piccolo (GB) was not a suitable ride for an apprentice jockey.
Following the race, Graham Lee reported that Fendale (GB), placed fifth, was denied a clear run approaching the final furlong.
