An objection was lodged by the rider of third place #3 “Tap Daddy” (Florent Geroux) alleging interference in deep stretch by the riders of both the winner #12 “Flameaway” (Julien Leparoux) and second place #1 “Tigers Rule” (Miguel Mena). After reviewing the race replay and interviewing the riders, the stewards determined that #1, on the inside of both #3 and #12 angled out and made contact with #3, impeding his progress, while the winner, #12 maintained a straight course on the outside. #1 was disqualified from second and placed third for the interference.

An objection was lodged by the rider of fourth place #6 “More Than Shirl” (James Graham) alleging interference by the rider of second place #5 “Googleado (ARG)” (Declan Cannon) leaving the 3/16 pole. After reviewing the race replay and interviewing the riders, the stewards determined that #5 drifted in slightly, into the path of #6, causing him to steady sharply and lose momentum. #5 was disqualified from second and placed fourth, behind #6.

Official order of finish: 8-4-6-5-1
