SPORTS MASTER was withdrawn on 24.11.18 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (right fore medial suspensory branch injury) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter ROYAL PREROGATIVE (Z Purton). Before being allowed to race again, SPORTS MASTER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
DASHING DART began only fairly.
THE SYLPH was crowded for room on jumping between LUCKY COIN and SCARBOROUGH FAIR which shifted out. In this incident, LUCKY COIN became unbalanced after being bumped by THE SYLPH.
SINCERE HORSE shifted out at the start and bumped M REBORN.
VICTORY MARCH was crowded for room on jumping between MONEY WINNER and GOLDEN CANNON which began awkwardly and shifted out. After this, VICTORY MARCH was shifted across behind runners.
THE SYLPH was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.
Rounding the Home Turn, MONEY WINNER was awkwardly placed behind VICTORY MARCH when being shifted to the outside of that horse to obtain clear running.
Passing the 250 Metres, LUCKY COIN, which was inclined to lay out, was steadied away from the heels of VICTORY MARCH which shifted in under pressure.
Approaching the 200 Metres, DASHING DART and SCARBOROUGH FAIR raced tight inside ROCHFORD.
Throughout the race, OTOUTO travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.
A veterinary inspection of LUCKY COIN and OTOUTO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
SUPREME WITNESS and NATURAL FLARE were sent for sampling.
