At this stage, THE BARRACUDA had improved to the outside of HIMILAYAN SALT in order to take a run at the same time as ONEMORETWOLESS, which caused THE BARRACUDA and ONEMORETWOLESS to be tightened and checked between HIMILAYAN SALT and SHARP DIAMOND, which was racing to the outside and attempted to relieve the pressure. Following this, HIMILAYAN SALT shifted back in and at the same time A LITTLE WICKED laid out, which resulted in HIMILAYAN SALT being taken back outwards, causing further interference to THE BARRACUDA and ONEMORETWOLESS. Stewards were unable to establish any carelessness on the part of any one rider, and whilst the incident was noted to be one of significance, it was nevertheless reported as a racing incident.
