- Stewards Report
Ian Williams had obtained prior permission from the BHA to run Abel Tasman (GB) partially shod.
Approximately ½ furlong out, a hanging Punting (IRE), placed third, shifted quickly left-handed, causing the rider of Toronto (IRE), placed fourth, to take a brief check, 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 Punting (IRE).
Following the race, Jamie Spencer reported that Punting (IRE), placed third, hung left-handed inside the final furlong.
Time 2m. 46.07 secs, which is 2.40 secs slower than the course average on today's going
