HALLSIDEHANKYPANKY – Bumped near the 900m by GLOBAL FACTOR. Passing the 150m had to be checked when crowded for room by STYLISH SAGA which shifted in to obtain clear running. At a subsequent inquiry it was established that as STYLISH SAGA was attempting a narrow run to the inside of GLOBAL FACTOR, which laid in, and HALLSIDEHANKYPANKY which was racing to the inside, whilst weakening shifted out slightly and made contact with STYLISH SAGA turning that gelding inwards and crowding HALLSIDEHANKYPANKY. Apprentice Huxtable rider of STYLISH SAGA explained that he had established a run and was inside the heels of GLOBAL FACTOR and unable to come out and away as GLOBAL FACTOR had shifted in and obtained a position to his outside. In considering the evidence Stewards determined that Apprentice Huxtable had committed to the run and with the shift from both inside and outside, and the result of contact were contributing factors to the crowding of HALLSIDEHANKYPANKY and in the circumstances couldn’t apportion blame to any rider and therefore took no further action.
GLOBAL FACTOR – Near the 900m laid in despite the effort of its rider and continued to lay in for the remainder of the event.
