An enquiry was held into the start of this race. The Starter and Adam Kirby, the rider of HARRY ANGEL (IRE) were interviewed. The Starter explained that HARRY ANGEL (IRE) was the penultimate horse to enter and had loaded with a stalls rug, but there had been a slight delay in loading the last horse, SIR DANCELOT (IRE), which was reluctant to enter. Consequently, HARRY ANGEL (IRE) had become fractious, kicking the rug off, and whilst he could see the rug moving from his position on the rostrum he was unable to see anything further. He added that Kirby had shouted at him to wait, which he had done, and when Kirby had indicated all was well he had effected the start. Kirby explained that HARRY ANGEL (IRE) had entered the stalls and had kicked out after the gates had been closed, causing him to lose an iron. He added that when he looked around, he could not see that the coltís leg was on the running board as it was covered by the stalls rug, and once he had regained his iron he was happy to indicate to the Starter that all was well for the race to start. Their explanations were noted.
