Hoban, placed fifth, Yulong Warrior (USA), ridden by S. Foley, placed second and My Mystique, ridden by C.T. Keane, placed third. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned, which included an admission from S.Foley who stated that he inadvertently struck My Mystique with the whip in the tight finish.
