- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Pablo Del Pueblo (IRE) to go early to post.
An enquiry was held to consider interference coming down the hill entering the final bend involving Pablo Del Pueblo (IRE), placed fourth, ridden by Danny Brock, Equality (GB), placed second, ridden by Marco Ghiani, and Redheaded Stranger (GB), unplaced, ridden by Laura Pearson.
The interference was found to be accidental as Brock shifted left as Equality (GB) took a strong hold and ran on to the heels of Pablo Del Pueblo (IRE) causing Ghiani to shift left and resulting in Pearson having to take a check.
Jamie Spencer, the rider of the winner, Crimson Sand (IRE), was also interviewed but was found not to be involved in the incident.
Following the race, Hollie Doyle reported that Rosie Powers (FR), placed third, ducked left in the straight and Danny Brock reported that Pablo Del Pueblo (IRE), placed fourth, ran too free.
