An Objection was lodged by Jockey Munro, the rider of second placegetter,
PEER GYNT, against ASTROJET, being the first placegetter, on the grounds of
interference near the 50m. After deliberation and considering all of the
evidence, the Panel of Stewards were of the opinion that near near the 50m,
ASTROJET and PEER GYNT momentarily brushed. Taking into account the
alleged interference and the manner in which both horses finished off the
race, the Panel of Stewards were of the opinion that the alleged interference
had not affected the result of the race. As such, the Objection was overruled
and the result stood.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on MURRAYFIELD which
revealed that the horse returned with a cut on its near-fore pastern.
