- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Winged Isle (GB) to go early to post wearing a red hood.
An enquiry was held to consider interference on the bend turning out of the back straight when Bagan (GB), placed third, ridden by Jason Dixon, interfered with Honest Exchange (IRE), placed second, ridden by Paddy Brennan.
The interference was found to be accidental, in that Bagan (GB) had hung slightly right- handed despite Dixon’s efforts to straighten the gelding causing Brennan to take a preventative check.
Being a 7Ib Claiming Conditional, Dixon was offered the opportunity to be accompanied in the enquiry but declined.
Approaching the home bend, the winner, Winged Isle (GB), hung right-handed despite the rider’s best efforts to correct the gelding, causing Honest Exchange (IRE), placed second, to lose its position when tightened for room, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved and that it had not improved the placing of Winged Isle (GB).
