- Stewards Report
Sapa Inca (IRE) wore ear plugs which were removed at the start and permission was given for Lightening Dance (GB) to wear a hood in the Parade Ring.
The winner, Tiar Na Nog (IRE), appeared to show improved form, compared with its previous run at Windsor on 29 April 2019 where the mare finished eighth of eight, beaten by 8 ½ lengths.
Denis Coakley’s explanation that the mare benefitted from the faster pace early in the race was noted.
Tiar Na Nog (IRE) was routine tested.
Inside the final furlong, the winner, Tiar Na Nog (IRE), shifted right as Sapa Inca (IRE), placed second, shifted left causing Robert Havlin, the rider of Lightening Dance (GB), placed third, to momentarily ease, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.
Following the race, Jason Watson reported that Born To Please (GB), placed eighth, hung left-handed and moved poorly and the Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of the mare failed to reveal any abnormalities.
