121F Irish Stallion Farms EBF H'cap S'chase

Owing to the low lying sun, the Stewards granted permission for fence #4 to be omitted from this race.

The Stewards enquired into possible interference after the last fence involving Dark Outsider, ridden by D.E. Mullins, placed second and Bakers Street (GB), ridden by Miss J.M. Cook, placed first, where it appeared Dark Outsider was bumped and carried off his line before the winning post. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that Bakers Street had caused interference to Dark Outsider and in doing so had improved his finishing position. The Stewards therefore reversed the placings of the first two horses and took no further action.

The result now reads:
1st Dark Outsider,
2nd Bakers Street(GB),
3rd Icelip,
4th Rebellion Boy,
5th Omega Springs,
6th Samson Bill.
