BELIEVE YOURSELF: Shifted abruptly outwards. An objection was lodged by jockey A Munro of fourth-placed Believe Yourself, against Spanish Bay, being the third placegetter, on the grounds of interference over the final 100m. After deliberation and considering all of the evidence, the panel of stewards felt that near the 100m mark, Spanish Bay shifted outwards, when sufficiently clear. Shortly after, Believe Yourself, who was making ground quickly, was taken outwards away from the heels of Spanish Bay. As such, the interference was not sufficient to warrant an alteration to the placings. The objection was overruled and the result stood.
