Gary McGill, trainer of It's All Gucci (GB), reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his charge hung left and pulled a right fore shoe.

The Stewards advised Gary McGill, trainer of It's All Gucci (GB), that a repeat of his charge's behaviour (jinked markedly left at the start and subsequently ran out on the approach to the 3rd last) may render the horse liable to suspension in future.

Flanagan, where it appeared Khanmurjan (USA) ran short of room on the inner. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards found S.W. Flanagan in breach of Rule 214 by riding carelessly and having taken his record into account suspended him for 1 race day.
