- Stewards Report
Richard Hannon had obtained prior permission from the BHA to run Magical Wish (IRE) partially shod.
Permission was given for Fleeting Prince (IRE) to be mounted in the chute and for Beat Le Bon (FR) to go early to post.
The Veterinary Officer reported that upon inspection, Repartee (IRE) was a gelding and not a colt as published in the racecard.
A query was raised regarding the jockey change for Riot (IRE), trained by John & Thady Gosden, with Cieren Fallon initially declared to ride the gelding.
Cieren Fallon, Oisin Murphy and John Gosden were spoken to by the Stewards.
Having heard their evidence, it was established that the agent for both riders had actioned the change of rider to Oisin Murphy believing that Fallon was injured following a fall at Lingfield on Saturday 10 April.
Being satisfied that Fallon had seen the physiotherapist and was subsequently passed fit to ride by the Racecourse Medical Officer and having seen the report from the Clerk of the Scales that Murphy was unable to do the weight of 8st 7Ibs, the Stewards allowed Fallon to be reinstated to ride Riot (IRE).
The Starter reported that Gallipoli (IRE) broke out of the stalls and was withdrawn at 3:58pm.
Richard Fahey was informed that the gelding could not run until the day after passing a stalls test.
